Why do I love to travel? Well the first reason would be because it gives me a chance to escape from the four walls that we all sometimes feel trapped inside. Just that I feel trapped more often than just ‘sometimes’. I love travelling for it gives me the freedom to be me. I love climbing up hills and mountains, wandering around trails shadowed by huge pine trees, crossing new streets, meeting new people, eating new food, experiencing new culture – in fact taking in everything that a place has to offer. And waking up as a stranger in a strange town – I absolutely relish that awesome feeling.
If I were to tell you about my favourite trips and travel memories, then this one sided conversation would probably just go on and on. So I will tell you about one of my favourite trips – It was when I went all the way up to Mcleodganj in Himachal Pradesh and stayed there on my own for a couple of months.

I believe being a part of the MTV Nano Social Media Drive would be a once-in-a-lifetime kind of experience for me, because not only it will give me a chance to travel around our country for free but also travel with a bunch of people who would be as passionate about travelling as I am!
