Blog: Kunzum

What is it about:

We travel. What do you do? This sums up the spirit at Kunzum, where travelling is a way of life. Enabling them to bring back stories in the form of blog posts, paper and electronic books, photos and videos

Author Bio:

Ajay Jain is a writer and a photographer, focused mainly on travel. He has authored eight paperback books and over 40 e-books

Inspiration to start blogging:

Having worked for newspapers and magazines, Ajay realized that their formats and agendas were very limiting. And traditional content is not available to readers when they want it, in a form they prefer. Nor did it allow interactivity with the author. Blogging addressed all these issues – and allowed him to define his own templates and editorial plans

Sharell Cook

Sharell Cook

Blog: About.com India Travel

What is it about: 

It’s an informational website, an online travel guide, about what to see and do in India, where to stay, and other travel tips

Author Bio:

Sharell was born and raised in Australia, and first visited India in 2000. She came back again in 2002, and again in 2005 to do some community work in Kolkata. After that, she never permanently left! She fell in love with an Indian guy and eventually married him. A friend of hers also offered Sharell a job looking after her guest house in Varkala, Kerala for a season — and that’s what made her decide to quit her job in Australia and move to India. She has lived in Mumbai since 2008. So far, she has visited most states in India, but there will always be many more amazing destinations remaining

Inspiration to start blogging: 

Sharell was very keen for a career change (She previously worked as an accountant) and after spending substantial time traveling around India, she realised that she wanted to write. In particular, she wanted to write about India travel because it’s what really inspired her and made her feel so alive. India is such a diverse and fascinating country, with so many treasures, and she wanted to share them with the world. She started out by writing India travel articles for an article library website and then not long after, she joined About.com in her current role, which is writing and managing all the content for their India travel website. When Sharell started working for About.com six years ago, the website had zero content and zero readers. So, she had to create it all from scratch, and she has gradually built it up to be what it is today. She feels so blessed to have discovered her passion, and that it is now her job

She kept a travel blog during the entire trip, and that was how it all started: her passion for travel writing, blogging and India. Since then, her casual blog for friends and family only has morphed into a professional level blog — She launched Breathedreamgo on Ganesh Chaturthi, August 23, 2009 — and she has been back to India about six times.

Shivya Nath

Shivya Nath

Blog: Shooting Star

What is it about: 

The Shooting Star is the home of all Shivya’s travels, and she hopes to inspire you to step out of your comfort zone and discover the world

Author Bio:

Shivya quit her corporate job in 2011, at age 23, and decided to travel the world. She has lived with the White Thai tribe in a remote Vietnamese village, hitch-hiked along Turkey’s Black Sea coast, swum with black-tip sharks on Malaysia’s east coast, spent a night in the highest inhabited village of the Himalayas, and fallen in love with so many people and places

Inspiration to start blogging: 

Shivya grew up in a protective Indian family in Dehradun, a small town at the base of the Himalayas, and spent her childhood wondering what lay beyond the mountains she could see from her roof. Upon finishing high school, she went to Singapore to study, with big dreams and a big student loan. As luck would have it, she graduated in the middle of the financial recession of 2009, when most companies she wanted to work with had ceased their hiring. She landed a job with the Singapore Tourism Board, where she learnt everything she knew about social media, and started following the journey of travel bloggers across the world.

It was impossible to tame her restless cubicle-bound soul, so in 2011, she took a 2 month sabbatical from work. She went flash-packing across Western Europe with a friend, and volunteer-travelled in the high Himalayas of India. In those two months, she saw, experienced and lived more than she ever had before, and decided to quit her first and only corporate job with the dream of travelling the world on her own terms.

Bhushavali Natarajan

Bhushavali Natrajan

Blog: My Travelogue

What is it about: 

Bhushavali is a wanderlust. She loves to travel, and she hates crowds. So by default, she ventures to places where many don’t venture. She finds new places which are roads less traveled. She loves riding her bike and enjoys the journey itself, as much as the destination. Her area of interest in travel lies in everything, but especially, in Eco-tourism and Heritage. And a compilation of all this, is her Travelogue.

Author Bio:

A Fashion & Textile designer by profession who makes unique, one-of-a-kind, eco-friendly garments. Bhushavali specializes in apparel & accessories esp. those made of Khadi, Handloom and Natural dyed fabrics. On the other side she is an ardent traveller by passion

Inspiration to start blogging: 

It was her first job and she was in a small town with no much regular timepass activities like malls or movie theatres. Need is the mother of all inventions and most of her Sundays she tried to explore all the lesser known places around. Soon some of her friends in the same town also tried to get around. She thought why not share it with the whole wide world, than with just a few friends. Thus, began her blog!

Arti S

Arti S

Blog: My Yatra Diary

What is it about: 

Arti’s blog is focused primarily on her yatras and chronicles her travel experiences that cover an array of articles right from where she stayed, what she ate, the places she visited, the people she met, etc,. It is almost like embarking on the same journey again! Her main aim is to help people plan their trips better. In addition to all the information, she also makes sure to supplement the posts with a lot of pictures in an endeavor to inspire more and more people to pack their bags, set out and travel

Author Bio:

Arti is a 20 something girl with an inherited travel gene, thanks to her beautiful wanderlust parents. She is on the pilgrimage of her life, learning different values, discovering new cultures, breathing life into experiences, talking to wonderful people, walking the roads and above all, trying to find the right direction for herself

Inspiration to start blogging: 

The inspiration came to her from the yatras she took with her family. Whenever they made any travel plans, she would find it difficult to get the relevant first hand customer experience details on hotels and food on the web. Google would throw up loads of links but what was missing were first hand user reviews and even if they existed, they were few and far between. She had the names and the tariffs but what she wanted were the photographs and personal evaluation from credible sources that would help her decide if she really wanted to stay in that hotel. Absence of that information inspired her to fill a gap that possibly existed and this is what paved the way for the creation of ‘My Yatra Diary’

However, since then, it’s gone on to become something more and is now helping her grow in her personal journey as well

Ruchika Vyas

Ruchika Vyas

Blog: Traveller Stories

What is it about: 

Converting strangers into friends, uncovering lesser known places, trying something scary, breaking the rules and simply saying “Forget it, let’s go, we’ll see what happens.”—that for Ruchika is what travelling is all about, and that is what the blog reflects. Traveller Stories is a platform to share tips and anecdotes about destinations, information that is useful for readers, and updates on ‘happenings’ of the travel world

Author Bio:

Ruchika has been a writer and editor for eight years, owner of a chocolatier for two years, a TV show addict for six years, and a happy traveller since the day she hopped into the general compartment of the Kanyakumari Express on an RAC ticket. Her work has been published on Conde Nast Traveller.in, Mumbai Mirror, CNNGo.com and Femina. She is also one of the contributing writers of Outlook Traveller Getaways’ book – Driving Holidays Across India

Inspiration to start blogging: 

When Ruchika first began traveling, most of her friends were very surprised because she wasn’t one of those people who had always harbored the desire to explore the world. It literally just happened one fine day. When she returned from her first solo trip, she was bombarded with questions about traveling alone, about the destination she visited and, of course, photographs. She simply wanted to collate all her travel experiences on one platform to be able to share them with anyone who was interested in traveling. And so, Traveller Stories began

A memorable incident from one of her travels:

Ruchika’s first planned solo trip was to Kerala, solely to stay in a treehouse that she had read about in Munnar. She was so determined to make this trip happen that she got on to the Kanyakumari Express on an RAC ticket. In her enthusiasm, she misread the train timings and thought it was a 24-hour journey, instead of a 36-hour one. So there she was, sitting in the general coach, without a hotel booking and with a dead phone battery. She reached Ernakulam at 4:00am and headed straight to Sithara Homestay – a place she had looked up before leaving Mumbai. The gate was locked. Stranded, she went and sat inside the Santa Cruz Basilica nearby. She sat near their garden and saw the sunrise in complete silence. All the madness that got her there was completely worth it

Dheeraj Sharma

Blog: Devil on Wheels

What is it about: 

It’s all simply about Traveling to Himalayas and you can expect travel updates, news, experiences, pictures, learning, thoughts, tips, guides, routes, maps, suggestions, reviews, etc.. all under one place. That is what is DoW (Travel, Off The Road…..)

It is an effort to create a travel community of likeminded people dedicated for Himalayas.

Author Bio:

Dheeraj Sharma is an avid Traveler, a rookie shutterbug, a die hard Leh – Ladakh lover, with a strong passion towards driving whilst exploring new places & sharing those experiences with the fellow Travelers. Lately, he found that, using your passion to dive into the unknown and testing your limits of soul and body really boosts you individuality. Since then he never looked back. He loves to capture the beauty of nature in his camera or simply say “Nature/Landscape Photography”. Frequently, he gets on his wheels to hunt this unsatisfied hunger of capturing & learning from the endless things which nature offers us

Before he dies, he would love to summit at least 5 peaks starting from 5000-7500 Meters or may be more if god, luck and physical fitness allow him to do so. Just as everything starts with a cause, so do this whole chapter of Traveling in his life

Inspiration to start blogging: 

For Dheeraj, Travel is a Reason to Believe, Smile, Love, Learn, Connect and Feel ALIVE!!

Down, out, alone and almost surrendered to the most difficult phase of his life, he suddenly thought of pursuing his passion of driving and traveling to re-start his life again, take it a step further and explore if nature has the magic to can save him and turn him into the person he once was as a child. Himalayas always had a history of being associated with peace and calmness, so he decided to have a treatment called “Nirvana @ Himalayas”. He went out into the wild to find out answers to many disturbing questions which haunted him every moment, top of the list being “Me or Devil??” The answer lies in his transformation as a person after traveling over last four years which allowed him to look @ LIFE so beautifully, making fun of every moment without considering the days passed or the days ahead. There is only one Life and now he feels that it should be ALIVE and AWESOME, always

Inspiration to start blogging: 

Lakshmi’s mother always used to say that as a child she used to run around like as if she had wheels on her feet. Eventually the desire to step outside her comfort zone, to meet people and lose herself in different landscapes – both culturally and naturally, is what got her to travel. She started blogging to share her experiences and to meet like minded people. She was in a corporate job when she first started blogging but eventually she got so addicted to the same, that she quit her media career of 12 years to blog and travel

What is it about:

Author Bio:

Anuradha was one of those who was very sure what she wanted to be – a scientist. The road seemed clear ahead as she completed her Masters degree in Physics and enrolled for a Ph.D. That is when life took one of its sudden turns, and she found herself abandoning her choice of career and looking for something to keep her occupied

Inspiration to start blogging: 

While Anuradha was still exploring her options, she got married, and re-discovered the joys of travelling, especially since her husband loved getting out of the city as much as she did! Soon, however, came the joys (and travails) of motherhood, and life took another turn as she found that everything for her now revolved around her son. Being the kind of person who cannot stay put in one place for too long, she was keen on doing something which would help her express herself, and that is when her sister-in-law suggested that she write a blog. She was skeptical about it at first, but once she got on to the bandwagon, she was hooked!

Rachel gives tips to females who are nervous to come and eases fears. Rachel tells about the secret trendy places in the other 24 countries she’s been to. In under a year, Hippie in Heels has taken off as a travel blog inspiring people to come to India and makes people laugh with her Friday story series, “This is India!”

Author Bio:

Living in Goa year round for two years, Rachel is an expert on travel within the state and has really dove into the culture of India as a whole.  After years of international travel from Africa to Europe, she left nursing to follow her dreams of living abroad after finally falling in love with Goa, and has since become a Thai masseuse in India.

Inspiration to start blogging: 

Rachel was inspired to start blogging when she realized that she couldn’t keep up with all the random people facebook messaging and e-mailing her for advice. Friends urged her to share her knowledge of India to a wider audience. Knowing she was a contradiction: hippie at heart, but girly girl on the outside- Hippie in Heels was born

Blog: AnkiOnTheMove

What is it about: 

Standing on the core foundation of Places, People, Adventure, Travel and Style; Ankionthemove is a two and a half year old Blog where ‘India and Abroad’ are brought to the virtual world of travel enthusiasts with much love in the form of Self-descriptive 3-5 minute Travel Videos and Conversational Write-ups. The blog also contains information on upcoming Adventure Sports scenario in the country,and takes you to ‘behind the scenes’ about people who conduct them.Added to that are the various Travel Meetups, Colorful Events, Style While Travel and glimpses from her own personal life. Featured in Fox Traveller, Deccan Chronicle, Elle, 104.8 FM and many others, this blog surely takes you to a fulfilled ride across 13 Countries, 24 states, 15 Adventure Sports and 115 Travel videos

Author Bio:

1.5 years back when Ankita backpacked Maldives, her peers called her MAD saying it was just a silly idea.Up until then, Maldives was a place for the luxurious and the honeymooners. Ever since, she hasn’t looked back. Ankita loves to travel. Period. The world of travel is infinite, and over the past 2.5 years, she has cycled on the commonwealth games track in Scotland, skydived in India, witnessed the world’s largest flower Rafflesia in Malaysia, said hi to incredible Sea Turtles in Oman, made many wishes at the wish wall in the Biblical Jerusalam in Israel,walked through the villages in Bihar, did All India road trip with her brother, laughed at the absence of Chudail which is much talked about in the haunted village ‘Kuldhara’ in Jaisalmer, and walked on the frozen Pangong in Leh

Quitting her previous Software Experience of 5 years wasn’t a decision. It was a choice of passion over routine. Since then,the jobs changed to being a Marketing Professional in an Adventure Firm to now a Marketing Professional in Skyriders which conducts Skydiving in India. It is through her job, that she collects the insights on how Adventure has evolved over the years. The need to bridge the gap of not knowing where to find Adventure Sports is what makes both the job and the purpose worthwhile

Personally, Ankita is game for anything that’s fun. In her free time, she loves being with close-knit friends, painting, swimming or walking in style. She is very much a girl next door but with a crush on travel and adventure that refuses to go!

Inspiration to start blogging: 

The great satisfaction of being helpful to people who might dream of traveling but for some reason couldn’t, is what made Ankita start a blog. It started off really small with capturing the essence of Bangalore, and capturing it in a way which is not just a random read, but a purpose which both her and her readers mutually share – a blog with a soul and a heart and plenty of information and experience as well as travel videos to simply “believe, plan, make and happen travel & sports”

    That’s a well researched list. I have been following most of them since the time I got into travel blogging and just discovered the rest through this blog. I am a frequent traveller and visit a lot of places. And these travel blogs are very helpful when we plan a trip. Even though sites like TripAdviser and MakeMyTrip gives loads of information about hotels and accommodation in tourist places, they don’t give good information about how to plan a trip. I was fed up with those sites and that is how I started looking for travel blogs. Most of the travel bloggers present the real travel experience and those were very helpful. Eventually, I got motivated by their blogs and started my own travel blog – http://www.indiatravelblog.com .

    It’s not yet a widely read travel blog but I am sure I will eventually reach there. During my early travel days, I had no intention of starting a travel blog, so I failed to make notes of them. But all my recent travels are well covered in the travel blog. Currently, I have covered Kerala extensively and you can get good amount of details from my travel blog if you are planning to visit Kerala soon. Also, I would welcome other travel bloggers to my blog to share guest articles.

    Thanks for including me in your list! I feel I’m in great company here. Some of the bloggers I have already been following, but there are also some who are new to me and I’m looking forward to exploring their blogs.

    Thanks so much for including me, this is a great list of top Indian travel bloggers. There are probably a few more I would add, however, it is a good starting point. I would love to see this group form an alliance of professional travel bloggers one day. India has many great bloggers, but there is no almost distinction between professionals and amateurs. Cheers!
