She started exploring new destinations, slow and solo, with an aim to set an example for many who believe that travelling alone in India is unsafe.

Sharanya Iyer, with her brand building skills, married her love for travel and writing seven years ago, and since then there has been no looking back for her. While Sharanya was creatively helping out brands to reach out their target audience, she realised that this was not meant for her. She told, "The only thing that got my heart thumping in those years, was the travel breaks I took from work."
Her latest trip to the Central Asian countries has been beautifully displayed on the profile and seems almost surreal. Exploring the Silk Road cities all on her own and helping out people to do the same is giving us major travel goals.

She said, "This was never the plan, but then there came a point when I realised that I have got nothing to lose. So, why not?" Her passion for photography and writing helped her to build a career out of travelling, and she is glad that she chose this.

Lopa is a passionate traveller and a full-time creative director and consultant. She believes in one life and one policy. For her, "Being able to travel is a gift, being able to travel is a choice, being able to travel is our one true privilege." As a creative director, travelling has always helped her to come up with new ideas for projects.
Her love for exploring started when she was working. She told, "Initially, a lot of my travel used to happen due to work, and that’s when the bug hit me. Now I am at a phase where I can work at my own will, and accordingly, I balance my projects and travel."
