Traveling the world with vulnerability and no expectations

I am a photographer and a wanderer and travelling solo is one of the many ways I have found to nourish my soul.

Hi, I'm Aabha

I am a photographer and a wanderer, and travelling solo is one of the many ways I have found to nourish my soul.

 I like to dive into new cultures and stay with complete strangers to experience their homes, to live their lives, to toil in their soil, to share their love and empathy and to feel the wonder of unfettered human connection over and over again.

 Traveling with such vulnerability and openness has been extremely rewarding so far. It has granted me refreshingly intimate access to various cultures of the world and allowed me slow and nuanced experiences in countries far away from mine.

Travel for me is as much about self-exploration as it is about getting to know the world and its people.

It has taught me to find missing pieces of myself I never knew existed.

It has shown me that letting go can be easier than one might have imagined. While travel has given me wild freedom,  it has also held my hand as I shed old ideas of myself to form new ones.

I have learnt that genuine happiness is undemanding and surprisingly easy to come by.

10 things I learnt while traveling with friends

While I like to keep my travels and vacations totally separate sometimes the lines get blurred. In August 2019, my best friend planned her bachelorette party in Croatia. Now can there be anything more exciting than being with your besties in whole new country? We had a lovely time together and the decision to travel together was a good one for us.

Traveling alone in India

Travelling alone is often perceived as something that needs fixing. Of course with the current trend of leaving corporate jobs to travel the world has infected many wanderers even in India.

Die gefährlichste Weltanschauung

Selten kam ich so spät nach Hause. Die Sonne schien nur noch mir zuliebe . Als meine Augen die Müdigkeit bekämpften, verlangte mein Körper einen starken Kafee und mein Geist ein wenig Ruhe.
