About Me

Call me Daniel.

Connect with me on Instagram

Why my location is Cape of South Africa?
I believe we all orginated in Africa and then migrated into different continents. We all come from the same place. We all belong to the same race, same tribe, same caste, same roots. At some point we split apart. What bonds us together is act of kindness. In my books, Curiosity and Imaginition is the beginning of ALL things.

I am on The Grand World Tour. Backpacking around the world. So far 85 countries. Last country I visited was Kenya. Just over 100 more to GO. ;-)

Now in Tanzania. I am quite flexible with the itinerary. Love to meet some local or non local folks, and make travel buddies, friends. I like taking one day at a time.

In my past life, I lived many years in India and in the USA. I quit my job and started traveling. Actually I retired early. I worked in a stereotypical job but tried my best not to live a patterned and monotonous life.

Music, Movies, and Books

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

Movies: I love documentaries. recently watched Human. I also like good humor movies and foreign language movies. My all time favorite movies are Pirates of the Carribean series, James Bond series, and many others.

Books: 1Q84. Love in the time of Cholera. I like intense, passionate, emotional, social kind of readings. If the books has period drama with the bit of travel stories, that's golden.
