Meet Raghav, - The Adventurous Wanderer 🌍
Hailing from Bangalore. Travelling and exploring places with a passion for adventure.
Biking as a passionBiking is my ultimate adventure. Over almost a decade, I've ridden over 3 and a half lakh kilometers, exploring the vast landscapes across India.
From group trips to flying solo, I’ve done it all. 90% of my trips are about venturing off the beaten path. Those hidden gems fuel my wanderlust.
Journey to UAE & Thailand
My journey began with solo adventures in the UAE and Thailand. Dubai was my first adventure. The Future Museum and the Mobility stall at the 2020 Expo were mesmerizing.
How do I choose travel destinations?
I choose destinations based on interests, using YouTube and fellow travelers’ recommendations. TripIt is my travel planning companion, mapping out every detail.
How to find the best deals on flights?
When it comes to booking flights, I’m a pro at finding the best deals.
And clever use of credit card discounts ensures I always get the best value.
Where I am travelling next?
While I’m open to exploring anywhere, Peru’s Machu Picchu holds a special place in my heart, a place where history and adventure converge, sitting right at the top of my bucket list.

Shraddha, the dentist, and Yogesh, the engineer, combine their passions for travel, books, and food to create thrilling adventures.
Number of countries traveled:We've explored six countries outside India, most before our content creation journey began. Just a year ago, we took content creation seriously, transforming our travel passion into curated experiences. Our recent adventures took us to Maldives and Vietnam.
How do we plan our travels?
I (Shraddha) enjoy researching and planning, and with Yogesh by my side, we set out on this exciting journey. I prefer reading about travel experiences from blogs and articles rather than watching videos.
Booking International Flights: ✈️
For flights, we rely on Skyscanner or Google Flights. From my experience, booking at least two months in advance secures reasonable rates.

Say hello to Akshay Mittal,
a software engineer with a passion for travel! He's been to 10 countries so far, including the USA, UAE, Singapore, Spain, France, Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, and Vatican City. 🌍✈️
Here are @aky.mtl’s top tips for budget-savvy travel:
My secret to successful travel? Start early! Book flights and accommodations months in advance for better rates. Use search engines like Skyscanner and Momondo for deals, and always hunt for coupons.
Choose hotels or Airbnb depending on your trip. Airbnb, with its kitchens for budget-friendly meals, is my go-to for cost-effective flexibility.
Budget Travel Rules:
Public transportation is often your best friend. Opt for day passes or travel cards to simplify costs and take the guesswork out of commuting.
Invest in attraction passes to explore more at a lower cost. Companies like Go City or CityPASS are fantastic options.
Travel broadened my horizons, teaching me to appreciate diverse cultures and languages. Learning a few words in the local language can open doors.
My ultimate dream? Witnessing the Northern Lights, the Aurora Borealis. A cruise in Canada or the Nordic countries is on the horizon.
