TIME TRAVEL WITHOUT A TIME MACHINE
So here’s a THANK YOU for stopping by my travel blog. I hope it will inspire you to keep the curiosity alive in every breath you take.
I am Sandhya (Sandy) and I live and work out of Mumbai. Am totally passionate about being in advertising, but even more in love with capturing time in motion. Travel has been a way of enriching my inner & outer world and it stays my most vibrant companion.
THE WONDER YEARS
I haven’t a clue when it all began. Was it the 1st trip I took in my Mom’s womb in the 8 month of her pregnancy? Perhaps I got a whiff of what air pockets & bumpy rides would feel like and got all excited! Or was it the return journey, when she insisted on sitting with me at the window seat of a train! I must’ve felt the cool, cool breeze and floated. They say some things just stay on in your mind & build over time.
My mom was a culture lover, so I became a culture traveler (totally impressionable). We had Greece in common but also the Pyramids, the Renaissance, time prophecies of the Mayans, the Silk Route, the Venice of the East & so much more between us. I then found new love in genetics, migration, anthropology, oneness and photography (self-identity kicks in). The more I started to put them all together, the closer I felt to the ones most different from me in identity. It was all too much for the heart & head to take. The feet had to get familiar too with all this exciting stuff.
FINALLY THE REAL THING
So a month after my birthday as a gift to myself, I moved from vicarious living to voracious traveling. Going solo. Going together. Collecting stories along the way. Thrown into twists almost by design. Coming back crazy tired too at the end of an awe-mazed, happy feet holiday. And my appetite hasn’t dimmed a wee bit. It’s 14 years since; but every new journey seems like a fresh, unknown start.
If you’d like to know more about some of the journeys, I would love to hear from you in the CONTACT ME page. You can also travel with me through my Facebook, Twitter & Instagram posts. May our feet never tire.
