Travel blog of an Indian family as they journey the world.

About

We are a family of three from India who have taken a break from our regular lives to travel around the world. This blog tells the story about our journey.

Senjam_Raj_Sekhar

Raj grew up spending endless hours watching the ferries and boats on the Brahmaputra river and would be fascinated by the gypsy families who would occasionally pitch their tents in Guwahati in Assam where he grew up. His wanderlust could not be fulfilled by short vacations. After long years of vacillation, he took a break from his career as a communications professional to travel. Raj is an award winning PR and communications professional who has consulted companies across South Asia, Africa and UK. In 2011 and in 2012, he was named by the Holmes Report among the 100 most influential corporate communicators in the world. In his writer avatar, he writes columns for five Indian newspapers – Mail Today, The Asian Age, Deccan Chronicle, Assam Tribune and Financial Chronicle.

 

Dwijorani Senjam

Lily grew up in Imphal Valley, a picturesque bowl of land that gave to the world the royal sport of polo and the Manipuri classical dance. A voracious reader of fiction from her childhood days, she often used to travel places in her mind. She likes to plan in advance and prepare for every eventuality before any travel…two qualities completely opposite to Raj’s ‘lets book as we go along’ way of travelling. Lily is taking a break from her career as a brand licensing professional. Lily is one of the pioneers of brand licensing in India and has worked with MTV, UNICEF besides setting up India’s first independent licensing firm Extend Brands.  She hopes that the slow travel will inspire the writing muse and give her a chance to pen down a few inspired thoughts here and there.

 

SenjamRaiyaanLingjelThe youngest one in the family is Raiyaan. Raiyaan loves pigeons, dogs, Peppa Pig, George, food and going out to the front door, not necessarily in that order. His first flight was as a three month old from New Delhi to Guwahati where he braved a mid air turbulence in the aircraft loo even as his parents and the air hostesses panicked. Of course, Raiyaan was unfazed. Raiyaan hates to be strapped anywhere…stroller, high chair, car seat..this can be a serious challenge. His parents hope that Raiyaan eventually starts to take straps in his stride.
