ABOUT ME


Travel Enthusiast, Backpacker and a Thrill seeker I am a sailor by profession.

I feel proud to be a part of the maritime profession,a profession that has been around since time immemorial!!
My profession, by it’s very nature, entails me to travel the world and sail the seven seas.

Sailing around the world gave me an opportunity to to visit some amazing places and meeting people of different races and culture. Gradually over the years this transformed me into the restless traveller that I have now become!

Backpacking was not something anyone in my family or friend circle had ever done before so I had no parallels to draw from. I started by venturing to destinations within India and gradually to overseas destinations.

Somewhere between my endless meanderings I came upon the idea of sharing all my travel stories with fellow travellers and The Evloving Backpacker was born!

This website is designed to inspire, to provide travel tips and to share my travel experiences. My travels are usually on a backpacker budget. However, I am not striving ardently to keep costs to a minimum and I do splurge on the “Must see – Must do” activities that the various places have to offer.
For example.:-
– I have rented and stayed alone in a  large three bedroom house boat in Kerala,

–  Done Scuba diving in th Andaman Islands as well as Townsville (Australia)

–  Dived with sharks on the Sunshine Coast (Australia)

–  Have flown in a chopper from Arunachal Pradesh to Meghalaya,

and in each instance my average for the entire trip has still worked out within the budget!!!

My intention is to travel far and wide, immerse myself and revel in the rich diversity our beautiful world has to offer.

About My Zen In My Backpack:

Every step I take away from home, I grow as a person. I learn something each day I am on the road and for me this is the most gratifying of pursuits.

Each post in this section is merely a conversation with myself. Because for me – To Travel is to Evolve!
