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.
