You’re probably reading this article on a working day, sitting in chair thinking about your next manali holiday. Take word from these three people who’re on a life-long vacation.

Everyone has #wanderlust but when the love for travel becomes one’s passion, it’s time to turn the tables. Take it from these people who quit their “secure” job and took up travelling as their full time career:

Shivya Nath 

“4 years ago, I gave up my home, sold most of my possessions and embraced a nomadic life. This journey has taken me as far as with my feet.”

She calls herself ‘Just a girl who travels.’ She refused to let her experiences be limited to a cubical space and quit her job in 2011 at the age of 23. Initially, she did a lot of unpaid volunteer traveling and once she established a presence in the blogging sphere, her trips started getting sponsored. She has been featured on BBC News, The National Geographic Traveller India, TOI, The Hindu and The Huffington Post to name a few.


“I have been traveling across the world since I left my 8-year old corporate sales and marketing career in the IT industry 6 years ago.”

It’s never too late to pursue your calling and Sankara stands as a live example to it. Traveling, photography and blogging which initially started as a hobby for him back in 2008 is now his full-time career. He now runs one of India’s most trending blogs- On The Road. He dreams of having traveled the entire world by the age of 45.

Lakshmi Sharath

“And I believe that a rolling stone actually gathers moss.”

Lakshmi’s idea of travel is one that goes along exploring the unknown and unseen nook of the cities that she visits. Her travel journal has hit over 5 continents. She left her 15-year long job to pursue her calling and sure it took courage, but the amount of satisfaction and happiness it gave her has made it all worth it! She now partners with many brands and supports her travel with partnerships and sponsorship.
“Musafir hu yaaron, na ghar hai na thikana!”

Here’s to the backpackers who feel at home on the roads and live for the journey over the destination!
