The journey of livingingulf began way back in 2017. When I started writing I had no idea, how this would evolve, but over the years my two passions dominated this blog: Travel and Books. Over time, I also started writing for print publications – a list can be seen on the Media page.

This blog began with my sharing my travel stories, but it has been nurtured by you readers. When you tell me about new places, new experiences, I plan my trips based on them. When you tell me that my travel tales helped you choose your next destination, it encourages me to write more.

I have spoken at Tourism conferences, Travel and Tourism Events, Student community events and mentored a few startups in travel space. Mainstream media has been kind to cover both livingingulf and me as its author.

I believe that Travel (and tourism) makes the world a happier place. Travelers are happy people, and it is nearly impossible to hate the people you have visited. Very few professions are blessed to be in a happy space, most are busy solving problems and handling disasters. Blessed to be in a space where you give people dreams of visiting distant lands as much as inspire them to look around and discover their own backyard.
