Exploring new things and new places definitely got me to travel a lot. I love to experience the diversity of each new place. Over two years down the line, here I am working with my team, offering tailor-made trips in Norway, Nepal, and other countries.

How did you get involved in travel?

"In 2015, after the massive Earthquake in Nepal, all private sector came together to send out a message "not all is broken" that is when I worked together with different agencies, personnel, and travelers to share their positive experiences in Nepal.

Reading different travel stories got me more motivated to explore places more. I recently took on photography as a hobby, which gets me to travel new places and explore them more. Today I work with my team to building tailor-made trips to Norway and several other places, to best fit travelers time and interest. "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"I had taken up a trip to Memphis, Mississippi with a week of volunteering at Habitat for Humanity along with exploring the city for the next week. I never thought that going to a new destination with an open mind to travel would be so much fun. I had never been on an unplanned trip until then, so everything was new to me. I ended up making a lot of friends during the trip, experienced different cultures, learned how to best utilize the time I had, and even learned how to build houses along the way. :) "
