About Aditi and her Blog
- When did you start blogging and why?
I started blogging around mid-2015 when I shifted base to Malaysia and started travelling more than ever. The intention was to document my travel and food tales along the way. I started writing about Malaysia and gradually moved on to other South East Asian cities and India as I travelled impulsively. The idea behind the blog is to inspire my readers to travel and give them tips, while helping non-travellers experience these countries through virtual tours on my blog.
- What topics does your blog cover?
Travel and Food – It covers travel tips, tricks, suggestions and in-depth guides, especially on South East Asian countries, as well as local food feeds with a list of the top 5-10 food items and restaurants to visit in the cities I travel to.
- What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
Travel: Gondola ride on a manually-operated gondola suspended over ropes between deadly cliffs at Timang Beach, Yogyakarta, Indonesia.
Food: Tried all sorts of bizarre food right from honey bees, cow lungs, rotten fish sauce to frogs, organ soup and more.
- What’s your idea of a fun day?
Hiking with friends, exploring a new restaurant over lunch and a quiet (quality) dinner with family.
- What’s your all-time favourite quote?
It’s actually an advertisement slogan by the beverage company, Mountain Dew that goes ‘Darr ke aage jeet hai’ (Hindi), which means that ‘Beyond fear lies victory’.
- What 3 things have you learnt from traveling?
It humbles you.
It’s OK if things don’t go as per your plan; you can always find your way around it.
- What activities do you do when traveling (sports, sightseeing, beach, museums, …)?
Hiking, diving, street-walking, local food tasting.
- What’s the funniest thing that’s ever happened to you while you were traveling?
Does a failed rock-climbing effort, screaming my lungs out while zip-lining for the first time, or turning upside down while hovering during my first Scuba lesson before getting certified count? ?
- What are your favourite travel apps?
SkyScanner, Grab, TripAdvisor, Traveloka.
- What is your dream destination and why?
I’ve always wanted to roam the streets of New York City on a solo trip, while eating every flavour of ice cream possible and stop by at cafes to finish writing a book (*dream*).
