Travelling is one of those things from which we learn a lot – about life, about people, about things – about everything! We meet new people, from different spheres of life, and try making them a part of our lives. We all have our own ways of telling stories – we blog, we click, we narrate. There are some who have their own quirky ways, which makes them stand out of the crowd. And one among that crazy bunch is this guy who is not only travelling the world, but doing headstands all around.
Yes, that’s right! Meet Vinay Pateel from Bengaluru, who is travelling the globe, and doing headstands everywhere!
He's busy travelling and doing headstands in different parts of the world. Otherwise, he is an automobile engineer turned visual artist. His many stunning works include paintings, installation art, digital art, and branding, among others.
Although he loves his job, his love for travelling is a bug that he loves to feed. Vinay's love for travel also happens to be a result of his uneasiness. He tells ScoopWhoop, "I get bored easily. I cannot stay in one place for long. I need to keep moving."
Below, you can see him in the serene resort town of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, overlooking the bluest of waters.
He further adds, "I wanted to put myself in situations that I haven't experienced before. So I chose to make this trip while living with complete strangers. Going to countries I don't know the language of and driving with strangers with whom it's difficult to communicate but always easy to smile."
He calls himself a shy guy, and says, "I'm a shy person and never liked taking pictures. So I don't have pictures from many trips. And headstands are something I enjoy and it's a good way to take pictures on a trip rather than regular smiling pictures. Headstands are special to me because I started doing them quite naturally. Two years ago, I randomly attempted a headstand as a funny dare and I could do it in one go without having any practice. Since then, I haven't stopped doing it."
Well, he sure is nailing the headstand quite effortlessly!
