Why do you travel and look for adventures?

First to explore the places and understand their rich history. Visiting new places help me to know about their culture and heritage.

Yes used couchsurfing and hitchhiking. Travel solo. My favourite travel tip is not living in hotels but to stay with locals like homestay.

Got any gear you can’t travel without?

Mobile phones

Maldives and Switzerland

How do you stay safe when you’re travelling?

Used precautions like travelling with medicine, mostly used cards instead of money. Don’t easily trust the stranger.

What’s the best way to experience a destination like a local?

Take a tuk-tuk right instead of Cab, and used public transport like the bus and metro. Stay with locals instead of staying in fancy restaurants. Try to eat local cuisines and try to eat at roadside street food.
