If there is no passion in your life, then have you really lived? Find your passion, whatever it may be. Become it, and let it become you and you will find great things happen FOR you, TO you and BECAUSE of you.” – T. Alan Armstrong
Hello, There !!
Thank you so much for your interest in knowing more about us. The shenanigans running the show behind ” The Tales of a Traveler “
The Tales of a Traveler is one of the top Luxury travel & Lifestyle blog in India. We aspire to inspire people to step out and explore the beautiful world.
On our blog, we share the best of luxury stay, offbeat locations, food finds, weekend getaways, restaurant reviews and travel tips to plan your vacations having a full-time job.
We are software engineer duo, one works as a SAP Consultant in MNC company and other is an Informatica Architect in an American Investment bank. One who has traveled all her life and other who has just started traveling. One who wants to quit her job the moment she finds her wings and other is just madly in love with his job as much as travel. But we both share a common passion for traveling which gives us an immense high.
We wish to visit as many countries as we can in our lifetime. Learn new languages, get accustomed with different cultures, try different cuisines and meet new people and make friends on the go.
We save all our hard earned money to travel the world apart from occasional sponsored trips ( All thanks to our travel blog ). We love to splurge on finer things of life, pamper ourselves at luxurious resorts and spa, take detours, live like locals and visit less touristy and offbeat destinations. We aspire to inspire people to blaze their own trail.
We make use of every leaves and weekend we can. We also love spending our time being part of social activities and giving back to society.
In last three years, we have managed to travel to 13 international destinations (and numerous cities, towns, and places of India. Interested to know the countries and places we have visited so far.

Current Location: Bangalore, India
Software Engineer by profession and a blogger by choice. I have been traveling since I was three months old and the journey still continues. Have traveled through the length and breadth of India, from Kashmir to Kanyakumari. Thanks to my parents for passing on the travel genes to me and especially my Dad whose job required us to move to a new place every two years. This helped me in building adaptability and mingling with the locals easily.
Apart from traveling my second love is photography and I just cannot stop clicking. I also love shopping, fashion, nail art and believe that “Life is too short to wear boring clothes”. I can shop till drop. 😀 😀
Software Engineer by profession and a travel freak by passion. I started traveling very late in my life and thanks to my lovely wife that the travel bug bit me. It’s a unique experience every time traveling to a new place, exploring the culture, indulging in the local cuisine and mingling with the local folks. Since then, I have developed a permanent itch to travel.
Apart from traveling, I am also a tech geek and video game addict. I own a collection of Play station games and old movies.
