TRAVEL WIZARDS CLUB MEMBERS
Svetlana of http://maverickbird.com/
A mother, writer, traveler, foodie, a doctorate degree holder in English literature and an animal lover, I am a Super girl from India. An ex flight attendant, I have been born with wings and having explored more than 35 countries as a solo woman traveler, I have morphed into a living, breathing travel expert.
So here are junkets of nearly 15 years of travels experiences; the good, bad and difficulties of being a solo woman traveler (and that too from India), my favorite destinations, cultural highs, offbeat adventure, awesome food moments, pocket friendly travel tips in Money Matters and more.
Pooja Gupta of http://www.traveljots.com/
I am Pooja, an Indian Travel Blogger, who loves to travel and explore various places in India and abroad. During my travels, I jot down travel notes, travel tips, advises, do’s, don’ts for fellow travellers and publish them on our blog. Though, I try to find a balance between writing and travelling, still there are a lot of trips and notes, I have not found time to put on website. I find Travel Jots, as a medium to inspire fellow travellers and share my experiences and travel planning notes. In my opinion, key to a good travel is the planning behind it. A good planning leads to good experiences as well as good savings. The tagline of my site is “Handwritten notes of a Traveller”.
Akanksha Dureja of www.akankshadureja.com
SRK Devotee, Proud Feminist, Blogger, Traveller, Photographer, Book Lover,Techie – In that order.! She day-dreams about beautiful beaches, lush green valleys, curvy roads and snow clad mountains. Wanderlust is a way of life for her. She is not a girl whose best friends are diamonds. Instead she would happily settle for travel vouchers to exotic destinations and maybe an expensive camera.

Himanshu Barsainya of www.everythingcandid.com
The Blog is all about traveling to places, mostly self drive road trips, to enjoy the vastness of the nature, capturing candid photographs of everything en route and relish the food-Dhaba food or street food. The blog a reflection of my constant efforts to capture varied nuances of the world in most candid way through traveling to distant land, meeting people, getting exposed to cultures, clicking photographs of mighty nature and finally sharing my experiences.
Through this blog I wish to share my candid experiences with all living and yet to born people. Aim of this blog would be fulfilled if I could encourage people to run from the safety of home and complacency of daily life to go closer to nature and enjoy other worldly life.

Reshma Narasing of http://thesologlobetrotter.com/
An avid dreamer,an incurable travel addict, a passionate writer, a bibliophile, a hopeless romantic and a girl who gulps-down large mugs of coffee many times a day. The Solo Globetrotter is an arena to fulfill my dream – A dream to take people like YOU with me virtually wherever I go! In this place,I want to combine my love of traveling and telling stories to inspire others to travel more, to connect with fellow travelers, to share my stories to the world, to provide insightful tips and information that would hopefully help people and meet like minded people.
Rekha Chithrampatt of www.ohfernweh.wordpress.com
My name is Rekha. I’m 28, and by qualification an architect; at heart a writer and artist. I’m a Sagittarius and display the persistent traits of being footloose & fancy free, tactless, loyal, optimistic, and a wanderer. That last bit, I’ve got it bad I tell ya! Hence the name of the blog: Fernweh. I have more than a love for travel, it is a need. Once I am in one place for more than a year, I have to move. I’ve been living away from home since the age of 14. You would think that being away from home so much would give me homesickness, but no, I have that rare affliction of farsickness.
Himanshu Aggarwal of www.antar-dwand.blogspot.com
A traveler by passion, a poet by heart and unfortunately an engineer by profession. Traveled in India from the misty peaks of Great Himalayas to the vast Indian Ocean, observing the changes in culture and ways of people. I write sometimes to connect with my inner being.
Ashray and Zara of http://bkpk.me/
Best friends, travel companions, musicians, partners in crime and much more! Until 2011 we were living in a far away land called Dubai. It was where we met and fell in love. However, for a number of reasons, life in Dubai no longer appealed to us, so we decided tosell all our stuff, pack our bags and travel the world! We are travelers with a mission. Our mission is to circle the globe and TAKE YOU WITH US! That’s what Backpack Me is all about. Through technology and our knowledge of how to use it, we want you to come with us on a magical trip, around the world – for free.

I PARTY WILD by Shruti Singh
You’re sitting in a boardroom and your boss is ripping your presentation apart. “Never have I ever..” he says and you jump in with “had a shot in the middle of the work day”? While this might lead to you getting plastered for all the wrong reasons, we appreciate your enthusiasm for the cause.
Shruti Singh, design graduate who felt a yawning gap for drinking games in the market, considering chugging till you throw up is not a game anyone over the age of 20 should play anymore. So she founded iPartyWild and designed Trippy Dice where four combinations of dice decide your fate. And then came The Kings Circle and The Ultimate Daredevils, a game set complete with four shot glasses, hilarious rules, challenges and advantages. Ideal for a larger crowd or maybe older people, we suggest?
