About Me

Updated June 2017

I have been traveling since June 2015. I started my journey from Mumbai to Istanbul to Mexico, and from Mexico migrating down South of America. Now I am in Bolivia. Hopefully, someday soon I will make it to Africa and into Europe and by train into Russia, Mongolia and China.

Many travelers told me that they don´t meet Indians especially in the Latin America. It is true. I met only 3 persons from India in the last 18 months, and few during the Olympics in Brazil. Otherwise, it´s been mostly hanging out and traveling with good people from Europe, America and Australia.

About 20 months back, I quit my job in the USA, and said good bye to the "American Dream". I knew traveling on an Indian Passport will be quite challenging. I have many fun and sad stories with respect to my passport. But it's all good.

Please follow me on instagram. I need more followers and good will. I think I am posting some cool pictures on my instagram account with some short stories.

My Instagram Name is @alien_trvllr.

Happy Journey and Namaste!

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: I have a respectful collection of music. Currently, I am listening to world music Turkish, Spanish, Iranian, Assamese, etc. as I am traveling or have traveled to those places.

Movies: My all time favorite movies are Pirates of the Carribean series, James Bond series, and many others. I also like documentaries, social movies and romantic.
