5 Travel Values That Are Helping Me Survive The Lockdown Life

Lalitha Mahaadevan

Travel. Something that most of us want to do right NOW, but simply cannot. It reminds me once again just how much control we really have in our lives. Makes me think of all the times I travelled solo and all the life lessons I learnt in my time on the road, which taught me that life, much like travel is not to be taken for granted. We are entering a life of new “normal” which we have rather been forced into. And what choice do we have but to embrace it and live it up to the fullest? Although...

How to pack your backpack like Hermione Granger packed her beaded bag

Lalitha Mahaadevan

I still remember the day I was struggling to unload my 11-kilo backpack from the top of a shared taxi in Manali. My co-traveller was a German girl who had been travelling for 8 months and her backpack weighed just 8 kilos! I wondered how on Earth it was even possible. Absolutely couldn’t believe it! Two years and many travel months later, I have learnt to pack my bags better. Time has taught me that like real life, I owned way more than I really needed. Simply because I was taught to think that I needed more. I’m grateful that...
