Moving to other country put me in situations outside of my comfort zone, forcing me to adapt quickly and adjust to local culture and customs. But, being immersed in the new environment gave me a new perspective of their lifestyle that words never be able to convey
How did you get involved in travel?
"My parents lived in different parts of the world because of my dad's work. However, at that time I never like the idea of switching multiple schools and stayed back in India to continue with my studies. My first international trip was to visit my parents in San Francisco during the summer, this was my longest trip I've taken until then and I thoroughly learned to relax and enjoy the journey. It gave me time to appreciate the world around me, to reflect on the places I visited and also the people I met. I loved every minute of my time in that trip"

"I enjoy driving and one my most thrilling experience is when I visited Norway-my bucket list roadtrip destination, and I made the most of it. It was a dream come true to drive from Trondheim to Geiranger using the hairpin bends of Trollstigen, an engineering masterpeice. Trollstigen is surrounded by mighty mountains and a spectacular lookout over the Geirangerfjord with eleven hairpin bends at an incline of 10 percent on its climb up to the 1100 metre high plateau"
