Travel is an experience that enriches our lives and is essential for all of us to grow as individuals.

Personally, I love my holidays to be slower paced with time to stop and smell the flowers; a balance between the famous sights and the offbeat lesser known places; and opportunities to experience local culture, people, and cuisine.

At the same time, I strongly believe that a holiday is all about the person traveling and the essence of travel planning is to help people plan an itinerary that is exactly how they want it to be!

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"I specialize in holidays which are focused on an authentic experience of India and would prefer not to help with the most touristy places. Spiritual and cultural heritage holidays, wildlife, yoga, and wellness."

How did you get involved in travel?

"I have always loved traveling. After many years of working in consulting, I had an opportunity to take a sabbatical which is when my husband and I ventured into travel planning.

We started with Iceland (where he is from) but India is where I truly belong so it was just a matter of time before we started planning holidays to India."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"There are many experiences which stay with you forever and change your perspective on travel and life. What I love most about India is the range of experiences it offers and how it surprises you in ways you will not imagine.

My most unique travel experiences tend to be those where festivals, cuisine and culture are involved... the crazy festival of colours, the dramatic Ganesh festival, an insight into Indian classical dance and experiencing the varied cuisines of India."
