Have you ever wondered what it's like to experience Fernweh?

It was a few days after Dudhsagar that I, for the first time, fully understood how powerful that emotion was. The feeling instilled in me a need to travel and there's been no looking back ever since.

Welcome to SoSpeakUpNow! If you’re here expecting to read tales that only those crazy backpackers would be able to tell you, you’d be disappointed. Never would I have the courage to leave it all behind to explore the world. I am someone most of you could relate to: a person who appreciates stability and yet dreams of experiencing everything that there is.

Travel, which doesn't define my entire life, is most certainly a major part of it.

This blog isn't just about sharing my experiences. It’s more about encouraging you to venture out to travel more. My posts are travelogues written to make things easier for you when you set out to visit the places I've been to. You might find this blog especially useful if you live in southern India. Folks at my college should find the Getaways from NITK section pretty useful. 

View the list of my travelogues here.

That isn't all. I write occasional posts on politics and current affairs, intending to use this blog as a platform to voice out my opinions and learn from what people have to say about them. You could view the complete list of all my posts here.


I started this blog in January 2014 and wrote articles on the 20th of every month for two years until January 2016. You could navigate through the blog to go through some of my older posts. I’d be grateful if you could help me get better by letting me know what you think of the blog.

Happy reading!
