From IT engineer to Travel Writer

You read it right, yes it’s a crazy feeling to work on something that we usually don’t work with our daily routine. So here I am with new adventure and lots travel stories, exploring unexplored places and lots of good stuff to share.

BTW, Have you ever said to yourself one of the following:

  1. “How do I find the money to travel? It seems too expensive for me.”
    “Where do I find the best travel deals?”
  2. “How do I save money on flights, accommodation, and other big expenses?”
  3. “How do I plan my trip?”
    “How do I stay safe and healthy?”
  4. “How do I maximize my time?”
  5. “I want to travel more but I donโ€™t know the first step.”

You are not alone. Over the past couple of years, Iโ€™ve helped hundreds of people answer those questions and travel more for less with time tested and proven tips and advice. By using this website, you can spend less time searching the Internet and being overwhelmed with information and more time doing the one thing you want to do: travel more.

History of unTravel

Nidhi Thakur
Born and raised in Mumbai, up until the age of 23 the only city apart from Mumbai I had โ€œseenโ€ (not explored) was my motherโ€™s hometown Agra. And even of these visits, that happened during every school summer vacation, I barely had any recollections.

So today when I tell you Iโ€™m just a regular girl with a dream to travel, you must believe me. It was only in the summer of 2014 (I was 24), that I finally plucked the courage to quit my job, and took the plunge and took my first solo trip. McLeod Ganj is the place I chose for my first solo travel experience, and I now proudly say that Iโ€™ve made the city my home. I returned to Mumbai after that trip, only to realize that I had left a piece of my heart back in the mountains. The travel bug had bitten, and I decided to shift and settle in Dharamshala to be reunited with my love and appreciation of the mountains.
With my blog, I want to invite you to join me on a virtual travel journey as I try capturing the unseen beauty of India and reciting the unheard tales of our incredible culture!
Letโ€™s untravel, shall we? ๐Ÿ™‚
