About

round

Hey, thanks for stopping by. We are Anna and Praveen. Luckily, both of us have a penchant for travel and coffee.

Why we travel? We love first-hand experiences than be a vicarious traveller, routine is boring, so many cuisines to try, so many cultures to experience, breathtaking and otherworldly landscapes, history is interesting when we are at the actual place, and it is so much more exciting to be in ‘the place’ we have heard/read so much about. Moreover, somebody has rightly said, “we were not born to pay bills and die.

We have lived in three countries and so far explored 15 countries across three continents. What started as ticking off as many countries off the map has turned into a journey to try and explore as many awe-inspiring places this world has to offer. We love nature! And along the way we never miss an opportunity to sample local foods and the best cup of joe. 

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 document 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 have missed.

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

One poem from my school days that I love and remember  – 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.
