Helloo! 

 

Maaru naam Pooja che. That is. My name is Pooja in Gujarati – my mother tongue, a dialect from India (which I cannot speak fluently, so don’t hold it against me!)

 

I was born and raised in the UK; however, my ancestral heritage lies in India, with family ties also in Kenya and Madagascar. For many years, the idea of being able to travel to another country was pretty mind blowing to me. This changed in 2011, when I caught the travel bug – I guess it had to hit me at some point given the diversified background that runs within my family!

 

I fell in love with travel because it allows me to connect with and experience different cultures. For me, the ultimate goal when travelling is to relate with the locals and really understand how it is to live in said destination. The life lessons learnt through travel are much more powerful than anything we are taught at school. I believe that by combining the knowledge accumulated from both, we are able to find our true purpose and achieve our highest potential.  

 

Not long after I curated this space to simply pen down some of the thoughts in my head and create a collective online diary for my travels and adventures, was I then able to turn my passion into a career as an independent travel agent. 

One philosophy in life that I truly believe in is: Doing what you love is freedom. Loving what you do is happiness. Becoming a home-based travel agent has enabled me to incorporate many of my passions under one umbrella; Focusing on attention to detail to create a personalised and unique experience is at the heart of my driving force. 

  

My life up to this day has been one of a wandering soul.

Never really fitting in anywhere in particular.

Hence my craving for adventure.

I’m all about sharing real life, unfiltered experiences and this is conveyed through the content and stories that I share with you.

I want to take this opportunity to thank you for visiting my page and welcome you into my online tribe!
