Inspired by the beauty of the world we live in, we are travellers and dreamers, just like many of our readers. In addition to travelling, we also take delight in blogging and communicating with our readers through storytelling.
Although the mere thought of sharing your story on the internet can be daunting, it’s an amazing experience itself and either you wanna write about your fondest travel memories or open up about a compelling tale of triumph, the process can be both healing and liberating at the same time.
We love waking up in the morning and thinking about a specific blog post we want to craft. We generally begin by making a cup of organic green tea and then start writing. Sometimes it’s a painless process; motivated and inspired by the latest article or book we’ve just finished reading the words flow unstrained, and other times blogging is challenging, and we experience a creative slowdown.
Ever since we’ve started travelling and blogging, we began to compile ideas for different travel blog posts. I have always wanted to transfer them from my travel journals (yes, I’m an old school traveller who still carries around multiple notebooks and pens wherever I go) to a digital form to have them all in one place. Given curfew conditions and additional free time, I’m accepting the challenge to willingly comb through my scribblings.
