About Me

I'm a reluctant extrovert. Perpetually waiting for ice to break ;)

Human Body. Old Soul. Monk's Mind. Nomadic Heart.

I am back on the road to explore East and Southeast Asia after a sabbatical due to my surgery!

"Humility is not thinking less of yourself, Humility is thinking of yourself less"
"Life is bigger than Success "

कर्मण्येवाधिकारस्ते मा फलेषु कदाचन।
मा कर्मफलहेतुर्भूर्मा ते सङ्गोऽस्त्वकर्मणि।।

I am a Solo Budget Traveler and Author-In-Progress. I have traveled solo through Central Asia, East Africa, Western Europe, Antarctica, The Americas and India.
