I chose to travel when all my friends were deciding to be an engineer. I then became a travel entrepreneur by choice. So, getting to travel around the world seemed like the most exciting feeling. Thus all others were surprised to see me take up a travel profession. But I can assure you that the travel business was considered an average career and not financially attractive.
I worked with MakeMyTrip and Yatra before starting Honeymoon Havens. So, I feel that was the best decision taken with a leap of faith to explore my capabilities in life. The reason I say this is because Honeymoon Havens made me experience the real essence of travel. Therefore, I had the fortune to travel to 15+ countries and have partners in each country. furthermore, I was able to curate experiential itineraries for thousands of couples through Honeymoon Havens.
So, I must thank a friend whom I was talking casually after a long time. She told me if I can help her share ideas on how to write a travel blog. I was excited because for the last 2 months under COVID lockdown, nobody spoke to me about travel. Though I have uploaded my travel photos on social media never did I share how to write a travel blog.
My experience has been truly personal so far and thus decided today to make it public through blogs. I believe this should help all my readers to start journalling their travelogues better.
