“Travelling is a brutality. It forces you to trust strangers and to lose sight of all that familiar comfort of home and friends. You are constantly off balance. Nothing is yours except the essential things – air, sleep, dreams, the sea, the sky – all things tending towards the eternal or what we imagine of it.”
Who Are We ?
Aanchal Karnwal an IT professional – Integration Architect, based out of London, UK. Working in the IT industry keeps me happy, but what makes me more happier is the work- personal life balance offerings and a cheque at the end of month that gives me wings to travel around and do something that makes me extremely happy and blissful.
My Story -I am a girl with a dream to travel the world, try extreme sports, try new things, meet new people and enjoy the time & life.
I lived and travelled in India for 25years, and moved to UK at 25. One fine day of year 2010, I decided to bring a change in my life. I was always fascinated with Europe so decided on London as my next home. I quit my job, with my last 5years savings I applied for visa, booked a one way ticket to London and started preparing for a new life ahead. After 2 months of rigorous job search and on a verge of my savings about to get over, I got lucky and secured myself a job in IT company.
Ashwin Shenoy-My partner in crime or you can say my ‘bitter’ half :)My strength and inspiration of travel. Like me He is also an IT professional, and he is the only one who can pull me out of bed on a Saturday morning to go and visit some place new. Oh Yes, I can be a bummer when it comes to winter mornings.
He is an excellent amateur photographer and most of the photos on this blog came out of his vision or eye for an object. Ashwin captures the beauty of the places we visit and bring those memories back.
After settling in, our love and passion for travelling really started. We started exploring local markets of London, unseen roads, pubs, walks to near by villages that gave us a high and ultimately Travelling became a syndrome for us. A type of Syndrome that we do not want to get rid of.
We have been to 9 countries and like many dream is to visit each continent. We travelled by car, bike, trains,planes and explored on foot, stayed in cottages, b&b, caravans,tents and backpacking, ate in 5 star to cook our own meal on a portable stove. We started to get a flavour of travelling and the challenges that comes along.
Believe me we discovered oursleves while travelling, did things we never knew we would love to do over and over again. We learnt to travel on limited budget. We learnt to enjoy the mystical beauty that prevails in each place on this earth.
I used to maintain a travel journal for all of our journeys, decided why not share it with people out there who loves travelling as much as we do. So here in Corners of the World you will read about our Travel Tales- Places, Fun, Pictures, Food.
If you find our blog worth a read, please leave your comments. Also please feel free to contact us in case you want to know more details on the places we have visited, We will be more than happy to help.
Happy Writing and Reading.
