Pinch of TRAVEL, Pinch of LIFE

explore new places, taste different cuisine, Know a different culture & Savour Life with Me

Hi! I'm Chittra

A curious mind often found in places searching for its history, talking to ruins waiting to hear back, and imagining life in places where it does not exist anymore. Relatable? Then you can have a hell of a ride reading stories in this blog. I enjoy the mud in my face as the safari jeep peels through the jungle looking for the unknown, listening to the birds’ chirp. I equally enjoy listening to temple bells and watching the towering architecture. And sometimes, it is just put my leg up, hole up in a place with a view and spend it at leisure. Quit my job, traveled for a couple of years, and experimented with being a digital nomad. Now, I am back to a full-time corporate job, and it takes me to places. A solo traveler who swings between backpacking and luxury travel. Have fun reading a melange of my thoughts. 

MasalaBox Travel

MasalaBox Travel is filled with travelogues on wildlife, heritage, history, food, culture from across the world. I am a storyteller and you are here to read tones of stories. MasalaBox Travel talks about more than the best places to visit or ten things to do. It takes you through lanes you have not been to and introduces you to food that you have not had yet. The blog apart from travelogues also features a column on musings mostly taking you through a laughter riot. The single woman that I am often starting to ponder and reflect on life, world, love, itches to pen down all these cheeky thoughts. And so, Happy Reading.
