Travel is Oxygen

I love to travel and explore. Preferred modes are walking, cycling and trains. Keen to understand the history and culture of the place I am visiting, enjoy local food and connect with people who have their roots there. Very keen to know more about local trade and economy, artisans and their craft apart from their social customs and political undercurrents. Local cafes and "chai" shops are an important part of my "Must visit" list.
