Breathe. Travel. Live. That's my Mantra. A traveler with all my heart, I quit my job in June 2015 to travel full time. It took me 3 years to realize that the 9-to-5 life is not for me. I had never dreamt of purchasing a house or a car, nor did I ever really want to ‘settle down’. All I wanted to do - was, is and will always be - to travel to new places, meet people and tell stories. But one of the best dreams in this world are also one of the hardest to achieve. Even after the realization hit me, it took me another full year to gather all the courage to break away. A soul-changing visit to Ladakh and a chance win of a Lufthansa return ticket to Europe set the wheel rolling. 6 months from that date, I sold all my stuff, packed few clothes and essentials into a backpack and walked out of my so-called comfort zone. The only other material possession I am still hooked onto are the laptop, the DSLR and the android of course – things without which I cannot stay connected. I have no idea about the ‘tomorrow’s anymore and frankly, it can get really scary at times. But 20 or 30 years down the line, sitting in an office chair and staring at a computer, I don’t want to regret that I could have lived for what I am passionate about, but I did not because of the fear of unknown. So on 20th June 2015, the morning before I flew to Europe, I quit the corporate job to follow my dreams. In the last 2 months I have traveled to 6 countries across Central and Eastern Europe. Currently back in India and leading group trips to adventure destinations. So do you want to join me in my travels? Follow me on - (Blog), (FB) and @sanghitanandi (Twitter).
