Hello there!

We’re Shishira and Navneeth, a fun, travel-loving duo from India. Welcome to our blog and thank you for reading it!

There are many interesting photos and articles about all the places we’ve explored till today, here. And we’ve also got some nifty little travel tips and tricks for you to explore like us on a low-yet-reasonable budget!

Who we are

We’ve been best friends since we met first at fifteen. We never traveled much when we were studying, but we always had the wanderlust hidden inside. After getting married, we decided to explore the world, one step at a time and share our experiences with family and friends!

We live in Bangalore and we enjoy the beautiful weather, cringe at the pollution and love the cosmopolitan feel.

But our backpacks are always packed and ready, so that we can wander to new places and stare at gorgeous sceneries, get lost in bustling cities, experience warm cultures and feast on the local cuisine!

We love spending endless hours planing for our next escape and we believe in optimising our travel costs and luxuries. We love backpacking! We prefer walking and public transport to Ubers and taxis, and rucksacks over suitcases. But, we also splurge on the occasional gourmet dinner and the luxury accommodation when we want to be pampered!


Ever since I could remember, I had a globe, an atlas or a world map in my room and the curiosity to experience the varieties of nature and culture pointed me to dream about a different country everyday! It was sometime in 2013, that I finally got to visit a new country, and there’s been no looking back since! I love shooting photos, writing about our experiences and dreaming endlessly about new destinations. 


My idea of a perfect holiday was a beach, some great food and an amazing sunset – but after our first escape in Asia, I found myself falling for rich history, enthralling culture and the most beautiful landscapes! Dressing up and playing the camera’s muse is one of my favourite past-times while we’re travelling. I’m also the ‘accountant’ when we’re on the road – optimising our budget-friendly travel! 


Amongst many more

I’ve been impressed with their commitment to deadlines and the kind of content they’ve been churning out. It’s been a pleasure working with them. Looking forward to more such fruitful collaborations!
