Krishnandu Sarkar

Stuck in IT by profession and a traveller by heart. Being born and bought up in typical Bengali culture, I have always seen people around me with the mantra “Eat – Sleep – Travel”. I love to travel with my family or friends but mostly on budget. I mostly love planning my travel as that’s the best thing I enjoy, to look up new destinations to carefully plan my itineraries. I believe in unplanned trips, but there’s a fine line of difference in planning and gathering information.

You can work pretty much where you want to – on the road, do you find it hard to work or do you just have fun and work when you come back home?

I prefer to keep my works aside when I'm on the road. I prefer to enjoy the travel and the journey while being on the road.

Do you feel many people are envious of your lifestyle?

Well, somewhat. The common question that I come across is "How do you manage to travel every two to three months?". I just reply with a smile and saying "It's preference".

In which countries have people recognised you, even when you thought nobody would?

I have only been to Bhutan and Nepal when talking about international tours. And I'm not that popular that people would recognize me.

Which three items would you never travel without?

My mobile, DSLR and bank cards.

Are there any specific souvenirs or other things you collect from the places you go to?

I have always found souvenirs to be costly at the destinations. One can get the same thing at much lower price back in their hometown. So as a budget traveler, I always avoid shopping at the destinations.
