It’s been 3 years since I finished my Masters in Economics from Warwick University in 2015. At the time, I had no idea what to do with my life. I considered continuing to graduate school, getting a job in London, or starting my own enterprise. But first, I wanted to travel. So after college, I decided to take a year out and travel around South East Asia. Somehow, one year turned into three, and digital nomadism is now my regular mode of living.
My first long solo trip was to Vietnam and Cambodia in 2016 which I did for 2 months. I travelled until June 2016 before getting what I thought was my ideal job in an MIT-based research company doing field experiments in India. Two months into it, I quit.
You know sometimes you have an idea in your mind, and you hold onto it just because you think you should? Well for me, that job was the turning point. Because after a spending some time there, I dropped all my doubts about the future in the dustbin and set out on the road again, as a completely free individual. So how did I reach to where I am now? And how do I sustain myself? Well, that’s why I made this blog.
This blog serves as a platform for me to share my experiences and knowledge that I’ve gathered over the course of 3 years of continuous travel to help you in your personal journey as well. Check out some of these blog posts to find answers to common questions:
…. And more! Here you’ll find many articles on destinations that I’ve been to, travel advice, and personal introspection.
My aim is to portray real life, as opposed to an idealized version of what travelling is. I want to relate to the regular person who can’t afford to stay in five star resorts all the time. I’m here to share my ups and downs, my fears and feelings, and provide advice, because, ultimately, knowledge is useless if it’s not applied. Please bear with me whilst I upload all my articles one by one.
