Here’s some food for thought today.
Take a break from that competitive job. Pack your bags and explore beyond those desks and cabins that hold you back. Watch the beautiful world out there and relish it.
Exciting at the same time nerve-wracking, isn’t it?
Few travel bloggers from our home ground did take up this risk and took their passion for travelling a notch higher.
They showed us just how beautiful everything out there is, via their blogs. And all of this was done when travel blogging wasn’t even a popular thing as it is today.
Gradually as their passion turned into a profession, they never wanted to go back to those tiring 9-6 routines. Not only have they travelled across the states in India, but they’ve also gone beyond and explored different countries, cultures, and narratives.
Be it wandering in the wilderness or hitting the roads, these bloggers have successfully created their niche and continue to inspire us to travel.
With so many travel stories stacked up in their pockets and travel shoes pushing them to explore more, we’ve got some amazing travel bloggers of India that you must follow!
