2012: Through My Lens.

It feels like yesterday when I was waltzing down the quiet beaches of Diu on India’s west coast, and sipping tea at a blacksmith’s workshop in Turkey. 2012 has been the kind of year I dreamed about everyday, before I bade goodbye to my life in the cubicle. I feel as though I’ve come of age as a travel writer this year, having written for publications like Lonely Planet and The Times of India, and having found gratification in press invites from the likes of Spain Tourism Board and Turkish Airlines. My wanderlust has continued to lead me to people, places, experiences and adventures that I can longer imagine my life without; here’s where I’ve been this year:









A big thank you for joining me virtually on my adventures in 2012; See you in 2013!
