Hey, thanks for stopping by. We are Anna and Praveen. Luckily, both of us have the same addictions – travel and coffee.

Why do we travel ?  First-hand experiences than be a vicarious traveller, routine is boring, food, nature, we were not born to pay bills and die (a wise person’s words), so many cultures to experience, history is interesting when we are at the actual place and it’s so much more exciting to be in ‘the place’ you have heard/read so much about.

Back when we were in India, with our 9to5 jobs we have backpacked across our country and a few neighboring countries. Our itchy feet has also taken us to few places in Europe. After leaving the corporate world and moving to the U.S., I plan all our travels—be it a road-trip, camping in the wilderness, or backpacking a new country.

We do quite a bit of research online (just like you) before every single trip. Blogs and other traveller experiences have always helped us in our travels.
Through this photo-blog we are trying to put together all our wayfaring and globe-trotting (adding to the plethora of online information), to help you plan your itinerary, find some new places, and suggest some experiences or places that we missed.

I do most of the writing here, he deals with all the pictures. Like the pictures here? Take a look at Praveen’s Flickr and Getty profile.

One poem that I love and remember from my school days – Leisure by W. H. Davies

What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.
No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep or cows.
No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.
No time to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars, like skies at night.
No time to turn at Beauty’s glance,
And watch her feet, how they can dance.
No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began.
A poor life this if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.
