I developed my passion for exploring the world and different cultures during a school exchange in Senegal. It taught me that we all have aspirations and can learn from one another, if we are open minded. Born in Germany, I travelled extensively through Europe, New Zealand, Australia, Russia, Dubai, Singapore and New Caledonia. After I graduated with a bachelor’s in International Tourism, I lived and worked in England, Germany, Australia, and now Canada. I enjoy my travels most when I get close to locals and learn directly from them about their culture. My most memorable experiences are swimming with whale sharks, hot air ballooning in the Australian Outback and skydiving in New Zealand. My bucket list is long, but at the top of the list is Bhutan – the only country in the world who measures the Gross National Happiness!
My love of travel and discovering new places began when I was very young, with my parents regularly taking me abroad on family vacations. Later, as a teenager, if not off having adventures in foreign lands, I could be found reminiscing and daydreaming about travel and sharing my passion with others. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have set foot on all seven continents, to have visited over 75 countries worldwide and to have lived for extended periods in five remarkable destinations: Wales, France, Germany, Australia and Bali, Indonesia.
More than 20 years in the travel industry, my passion is still there and having taken my own children out to discover the world - from snorkelling with sharks in Belize, fishing for piranha in the Amazon basin of Peru to watching orangutans in the wild in Borneo and climbing the temples of Angkor Wat in Cambodia: I hope that I have instilled a love of travel in them.
Helping people discover the pleasure of travel and watching them get bitten by the travel bug is what I enjoy most.
I began my career in Cultural Tourism as a lecturer for European educational groups in the Middle East. I studied architecture and graphic design but found in tourism the ideal field to fulfill my love of history, art and people. I have lived on 3 different continents and traveled extensively in Asia, the Middle East, Europe, Africa and the Americas! I can speak English, French and Farsi fluently and can get by in German, Spanish and Arabic.
I am very passionate about the cultural diversities one finds while traveling and my greatest ambition is to keep on traveling. I want to see the great architecture, the flora and fauna, taste the good food, drink the exotic wines, dance to different beats and enjoy the exciting nightlife that our world has to offer. That’s why my favorite destination is South America, it encompasses all of that and more!
Travelling is an adventure and it’s also a healer. Meeting new people in new places fills me with curiosity about the world around me, so travel feeds my desire to learn about new cultures and increases my respect for different places. Over the years I have explored everything from idyllic countryside landscapes to dynamic cities, wild mountains, peaceful beaches and fascinating deserts. I have travelled solo, as well as with groups of some of the most amazing and passionate travellers you could hope to meet. My visit to the UAE had a major impact on me. It was a turning point in my travelling adventure and unlike anything else I’ve experienced, because it’s a somewhat artificial setting, but it’s also fascinating and full of life at the same time.
15 years ago I completed a tourism degree with a goal that I would show my mother the world as I had already been bitten by the travel bug. I learned that it is a priceless gift to create memories in different destinations. Some of my most memorable experiences are learning not to fall while surfing in Costa Rica, swimming with the sharks in Belize, walking on a pure white sand beach in the Philippines, swimming with dolphins in Jamaica, feeding kangaroos in Australia, visiting the Big Buddha in Hong Kong, enjoying the magical sites of Machu Picchu, and paragliding in Lima. The biggest bonuses in travel are recharging your batteries, leaving your worries at home, and returning to share your stories with family and friends. This has made me realise I love helping others create their own great travelling experiences.
I was born in Zimbabwe and caught the travel bug at an early age. Before coming to Canada to pursue my post-secondary education, I had opportunities to travel in Ethiopia, South Africa, Zambia, Dubai, Hong Kong, and Mainland China. After completing my degree I worked in the airline industry, which served as a bridge into the travel industry. One of the best things about working in travel is the network of connections you make with people and the knowledge you gain about cultures all over the world. When I choose a travel destination, it’s because I want to know more about the Earth, and all the beautiful people on it.
I’ve always loved biking and I’ve been to several places in India on my bike. My most adventurous bike journey was to Ladakh—a 1,200-kilometer journey from where I live in Delhi. I’ve been working in the travel industry for six years now, and it gives me immense pleasure to serve every single customer. It’s really easy to connect with all the travellers that I assist and guide, as we all have a respect and passion for what this beautiful world has to offer. I believe in going with the flow, and no matter where my travels take me in the future, I am pretty sure that I will find my share of happiness there.
I wrote my first airline ticket in summer vacations of grade 10, in a family owned travel business back in Bombay India, which was established by our grandfather in 1938. Travel became passion right then and I haven’t looked back since. Joined Air France after graduation, had the fortune of working for Gulf Air, Malaysia Airlines, Qatar Airways and other major travel businesses around the globe. My pursuit of cities, beaches, cultural, adventure, eco, nature, wilderness & architecture tourism has taken me to over 460 cities in 53 countries and am still counting. Our friendly spy, Google just sent me travel account of 2018 that counted 11 countries, 55 cities and 147,000 km i.e. 2.5 times around the globe. My favourite places so far are home i.e. Canada, Empty Quarter Desert in Arabian Gulf and South Island - New Zealand. Bucket list includes Antarctica, a train journey from Moscow to Vladivostok via Central Asia & Panama Canal on top, in a yearning of about +60 places. Travel is the best experience human race can attain and I just love to share it with our clients.
I first realized my passion for travel when I went to college, where I met many like-minded travellers. I love the opportunity to explore new cultures and how people live in different countries. I enjoy hearing about their daily lives and I learn from all of their stories. I have always been a mountain-lover, so I’ve spent some time in the major mountainous regions of India, such as Rishikesh, Manali and Dharamshala. I also enjoy the beaches of Daman and Goa. And I hope to travel more in the future, as the high I get from it is simply incredible.
When it comes to travel, my personal mantra is: 'Travel light and with an open mind'. This has served me well in my travel experiences across Asia, Europe, Africa, and Latin America & it's also been useful in my career, which has included travel industry roles in the Philippines and India - and now in Canada.
I joined Indus Travel in 2009 and I've worked with many groups from across the USA and Canada, putting together some amazing trips to places like Peru, South Africa, Italy and Ireland. I really enjoy working in group travel as it helps people to gain a deep understanding of different cultures and business procedures across the world.
Since I was a teenager, I was determined to become a travel guide. Following my dreams, I studied and successfully graduated with a Masters Diploma in Tourism and Hospitality Management in Ukraine. I did not become a tour guide, instead, I am the one who works behind the scenes, participating significantly in creation of new products. Today, with 20 years of experience, I am blessed to have an extraordinary and interesting job and I consider travel professionals, like me, to be extremely lucky as we bring the light, joy and happiness to people during their holidays. I have traveled vastly in Europe and I take any and every opportunity to travel for business, with family or friends like my recent trip to Ecuador & Galapagos Islands which was marvelous! South America is big on my travel bucket list and I daydream about Brazil, Argentina and Chile altogether with some other countries like Australia and New Zealand.
For the past seven years I have been working in the Travel Industry. I choose this career path because of my love of travel and exploring new destinations as well as wanting to experience other cultures for myself. With so many countries home to different people, different religions and different cultures I feel it is better to explore than sit at home. We need to enjoy this beautiful world we live in. I still remember the remarkable experience I had when I went Saudi Arabia, I learned so many new things, tried new foods, learned more about their religion as well as their culture. Travel is the best way to do this and I like helping people discover what is out there.
What started with traveling for school turned into a passion for exploring new cultures. I have always loved meeting new people and discovering foreign countries. What better way to learn about people and culture than by traveling? I was born in Zimbabwe and have been lucky enough to have lived, worked, and traveled extensively throughout my home country, Canada, and the Netherlands. I have traveled to South Africa, Barbados, Belgium, England, and the United Arab Emirates and hope to visit many more countries around the world! While I originally studied psychology, I have gained experience working in the airline industry. Moving onto the travel industry seemed to be the next logical step which combines all the things that I love! I enjoy learning about people and guiding them on their journeys to discover new places and experience new cultures.
I went on my first international trip at the age of 13 and it was from that moment that I realized that I want to travel and visit as many countries as I can. I did an overland trip in South America and I was hooked. I chose to study Tourism & Hospitality Management so that I could be a part of this industry. It has given me the opportunity to meet inspiring people from all around the world. I am passionate about travelling and very interested in learning about the different cultures around the world. I love sharing these experiences with my friends, family, colleagues and clients.
When I was 16, I got my first summer job landscaping which allowed me to explore different destinations in my home country. I became fascinated by travelling and knew that someday I wanted to work in the tourism industry so I could explore further afield. I studied Commerce at university before getting my first job as an Airport Representative for an inbound tour operator. This is where I learned the basics of tourism; being on the frontline, gave me the opportunity to interact with people from around the world. It is this job that taught me how much I loved sharing and introducing others to different cultures, that travel is one of the greatest ways to experience these exchanges. I underwent a career change to follow my passion — travel. When it comes to personal preferences, I have always been a lover of cultural, beach and wild life destinations. Now at Indus, I get the opportunity to help create memorable trips and adventures that our travellers will never forget. Outside of work I love to listen music, go cycling and play badminton.
After earning my degree in Travel Management, I worked in a number of different positions before finding my way to Indus Travels, airport ground staff, an airline ticketing agent as well as working as a travel agent offering travel to Japan and the Philippines. I learned that I love assisting travellers with making their holiday travel plans and knowing they are going to have a wonderful time discovering the world. I have traveled all around the Philippines as well as visiting South Korea, Singapore, Bali, Thailand and Taiwan. Now that life is getting back to normal I look forward to exploring more of this vast world!
Hi... I am a Marketing and Product Coordinator at Indus Travels. As a travel enthusiast, I am always eager to learn about new and exciting places around the world. While I may not have had the chance to travel as much as I would like, I am determined to explore every corner of the globe and experience all that it has to offer. In my professional life, I have had the opportunity to work with a variety of brands and organizations, focusing on branding and communication. I have a passion for helping businesses tell their unique stories and connect with their audience in meaningful ways. Outside of work, you can find me reading, watching movies, and dancing to any beat. I am always on the lookout for new and exciting experiences that can inspire and enrich my life, and I believe that travel is one of the best ways to do just that. No matter where your journey takes you, it has the power to transform and shape you in ways that you never could have imagined.
My interest in travel began when my school used to take us for trekking trips to different places all over India every Autumn break. During my university years I used to sneak out alone to a new place at least once a month and this led me to do post graduation studies in tourism. Being a tourism student we were given the opportunity to take many class trips and the best part was that we designed our own itineraries, had to book our own coach, hotels for the entire class, then do the costing which turned out to be great experience for my work here at Indus! I have been to Thailand, Bali, Singapore, Malaysia, Myanmar and Japan; a country I was always fascinate by from a young age. I have had the pleasure of meeting many people from different continents and have even made some lifelong friends working in this industry. I enjoy making travel arrangements and providing solutions to client’s travel needs so they come home with fantastic memories.
As a child, travelling was fun and exciting, even if it was just a bus or a train ride. My passion for travel grew even stronger while living in Dubai, a tourist hub famous for its skyscrapers, high-end hotels, and known as the Middle East's shopping capital, where traveling and exploring became a part of my daily routine. Every day, I had the privilege of connecting with people from over 130 countries, learning about their travel experiences, understanding, and living in different cultures, enjoying multi-cuisine, being fascinated by wildlife, nature, beautiful beaches, and much more. Working in travel and tourism is more than a job to me, it was and still is a deep emotion I couldn't live without. As a travel specialist, there is no greater joy than assisting travelers in exploring, discovering and finding authentic experiences in far-flung places. Being a part of Indus Travels only allows me to traverse what lies beyond those best travel experiences, exceptional life-changing experiences!
With 15 years of experience as a travel professional, I have had the pleasure of exploring diverse destinations across India, Asia, and the breathtaking pilgrimage site of Kailash Mansarovar. Traveling is not just a profession for me; it is a deep-rooted passion that fuels my curiosity and allows me to discover new cultures, immerse myself in enchanting landscapes, and create unforgettable memories.
Alongside my love for travel, I have an affinity for music and playing cricket, which adds an extra touch of joy and excitement to my journeys. However, if there's one thing that truly captivates my heart, it's the tranquil beauty of beaches. As an avid beach lover, I have sought out and experienced the pristine charm of numerous coastal stretches around the world. Yet, when it comes to my favorite beaches, I hold a special love for the clean and serene shores of India.
The country's vast coastline offers a diverse array of picturesque beaches, each with its unique ambiance and allure. Whether it's the golden sands of Goa, the turquoise waters of Andaman and Nicobar Islands, or the hidden gems along the Konkan coast, I find solace and bliss in the tranquil surroundings of these pristine coastal havens. As we embark on this journey together, I am excited to share my extensive knowledge and experiences with you. From insider tips on travel planning and itineraries to the best-kept secrets of enchanting destinations, I'm here to guide you in creating remarkable and unforgettable travel adventures.

Fueled by an insatiable wanderlust, I embark on captivating journeys to uncover the diverse landscapes, cultures, and hidden gems that our world has to offer. Armed with my camera, I seize breathtaking moments and capture mesmerizing scenes, freezing them in time and sharing them with a wide audience.
The seamless fusion of my love for travel and photography enables me to document my experiences and craft compelling visual narratives. Additionally, I find great joy in the culinary arts, constantly exploring new flavours and techniques. As an individual who thrives on observing and connecting with new people, I am fueled by the energy that comes from these encounters. With a diverse work background in the travel trade, I am currently a valuable member of the Products and Marketing department at Indus Travels, where I continue to contribute my expertise.
Traveling is not just a passion; it's a transformative experience that fuels the soul. Exploring new destinations and immersing in diverse cultures ignites the curiosity and deepens appreciation for the world we live in. From the serene beauty of countryside landscapes to the vibrant energy of bustling cities, from the awe-inspiring heights of majestic mountains to the tranquil shores of pristine beaches, and to the mesmerizing charm of the captivating deserts, every journey we undertake leave an indelible mark on our spirits. I had the incredible opportunity to embark on a memorable journey to Singapore. This vibrant state captivated me with its blend of modernity and rich cultural heritage.
Exploring its dazzling skyscrapers, iconic landmarks, and enchanting gardens was a feast for the senses, while the warm hospitality of the locals left a lasting impression on my heart. Singapore's unique charm and progressive spirit have further fueled my passion for the travel industry, reminding me of the endless wonders awaiting exploration. Over the past 15 years or so, I have been fortunate to have a remarkable and fulfilling career in the travel industry. As a travel professional, I consider myself blessed to be able to bring light, joy, and happiness to people during their well-deserved vacations. For me, the travel industry is not just a job; it's a gateway to endless possibilities, enriching our lives and connecting us with the beauty of our diverse world.
I believe that traveling enriches the soul and opens your mind. Since I was little I dreamt of knowing the world. I haven't been everywhere but I'll do my best to make it. My passion is to travel and hike. Every time I go to a new place it's around a popular hiking destination. I started in the travel industry in 2017 with a corporate travel agency and fell in love with the process of booking and helping passengers to their destination. Now, with Indus Travels, I will be helping lots of clients to be able to enjoy their vacations and living their best live experience.The journey is never ending!
The journey of thousand miles begin with a single step, the urge to create moments and treasure the investment. This is how my soul embarked for a complete journey. Travel always brought me out of my comfort towards exploring various cultures, customs, traditions, language, food, clothing and ethinicity. For me, travel is not a reward but an education for my living. I feel fortunate to have spread the joy, happiness, experiences and knowledge to many who have the desire to explore the world. It allows you to become so many different versions of yourself and to be lost in the best direction. I wish to see places than to hear about them and continue my journey of going thousand miles. The change in the earth latitude has brought a change in my attitude.
I never got a chance to explore my own country much (still haven’t). Fortunately, one of the most beautiful countries – Australia, was my first international destination. I was smitten. Although I was a student there pursuing my MBA, I explored the length and breath of the country in a RV. I did not know at the time that this tour planning skill will help countless others with their own travels. My subsequent stints at work required me to travel overseas for extended periods and I always found some time to absorb what the country had to offer.
Thankfully, I have had the chance to live and work in 4 different countries, and traveled to over 25 in the past decade itself. Like a lion who tasted blood, I know I cannot ever stop traveling. Being in the travel industry allows me to engage with passionate travelers and help them explore this big blue planet. If I am not working, I am either reading, catching up on latest shows/movies (huge GoT fan) or keeping abreast of world events.
I have been a part of this dynamic travel industry for the last 9 years and it has been adventurous for me. Having stayed away from my family and friends was not easy but gave me time to travel though not very rigorously. I have been to the mountain’s multiple times and to beaches as many times. I find them both attractive. My dream destination would be the Swiss Alps and this region of beautiful Europe.
I am an avid traveler and content creator from India. I've explored my homeland extensively, from the Himalayas to the coast, immersing myself in its diverse culture. Adventure fuels my heart, leading me to delve deep into each destination. I've wandered through markets, danced to local rhythms, and marveled at nature's splendor. Not just sights and sounds, but also flavors entice me. I've tasted the essence of each region, celebrating its uniqueness. However, my wanderlust extends beyond India. I've embraced cultures worldwide – from Abu Dhabi's modernity to Indonesia's tropical charm and Saudi Arabia's diversity. A healthy lifestyle accompanies my travels, finding solace in hiking amidst majestic mountains. My travel passion isn't just personal; it inspires others. Through captivating stories and videos, I kindle wanderlust in fellow adventurers, celebrating Earth's wonders and heritage. As I continue my journey, may my tales inspire you to embark on transformative adventures. Let's embrace the unknown, relish moments, and uncover the beauty beyond the horizon.
I developed an interest in travel during college and chose Tourism Management for my degree. Every semester, we were required to participate in tours locally and internationally, this really helped me realise that travelling was something I loved. I enjoyed traveling because we can learn about other countries and cultures and still get to enjoy ourselves at the same time. My favourite destinations are places close to the beach; the sound of waves has a calming effect on me, and being near the ocean allows me to reset. I initially wanted to be a flight attendant but didn’t meet the height requirement so have now found another way to share my passion for travel. I always enjoy helping our clients with their travel plans knowing that they will make wonderful memories along the way.
I have loved traveling since I was very young. Traveling with my family was always full of fun and adventure, discovering new places, trying different foods, and experiencing new things. After graduation, I decided to embark on a career in the travel industry.
It's not just a profession for me; it’s a way of life. It's about connecting with new people, understanding different perspectives, and creating moments that linger in the hearts of our clients, providing guests with amazing memories.
