I am Priyanka
My hometown is in Allahabad, India; if you haven’t heard of this place try searching “World’s largest pilgrimage gathering”. This place has got it’s own vibe and I guess it played a part in brewing my love for nature and travel.
Even when I was a little girl, I used to plan all my summer vacations with full excitement well in advance. When I moved to Bangalore for my MBA, I started to go on short trips with my friends frequently. During my MBA, I got the opportunity to do my first International trip to Europe. It was then when I actually realized that “The world is a book and those who don’t travel read only one page.” Since then, I have been longing to travel the world.
By profession, I am a Financial Analyst. Right after I started working, I started exploring India, one state at a time. Gradually, I ticked off my bucket list to tour East, West, North & South of India. If you ask me, I can’t pick a favorite! Have you seen that funny traveling reel “When my parents ask where all my money goes?” That’s literally me.
After 2 years of my job, I travelled to Bali and met the love of my life. Traveling is magical for me; it makes me feel that I have something amazing to look forward to in life. My travel mantra is to ‘Travel in style’. Even a little opportunity to get dressed and head out, lights up my face. And when I am enjoying a variety of cuisines, it’s even better.
I always loved to click photographs during my trips and write my travel stories. Now traveling has become my passion. I want to share my magical moments with you all. Through Bruised Baggages I want to help you plan your best vacation because yes, the world is a book and it feels amazing to read each page in the best way possible. 🙂
During my childhood days, I was a fan of that Hindi show “Duniya ki sair karlo” which means Explore the World. I used to get so mesmerized by it that those views are still down my memory lane. And ever since I did my first International family trip to Singapore and Malaysia, I got hooked to traveling.
By profession, I am a Software Developer and hail from Rajasthan; one of the most popular places to travel in India. I explored Europe the first chance I got after I started earning. Gradually, I started traveling and exploring different states of India with my friends. It’s traveling that made it possible to meet my one and only. I met her in Bali for the first time.
I am a nature lover yet techie at the same time. I love mountains and beaches like I love those sparkling lights of Eiffel Tower. I dreamt to explore the world. My hard work got me to Washington; a place famous for high mountains and high technology which exactly matches my taste. Ever since then, I have been exploring United States as as resident.
I have a soft- spot for luxury vacations and guitar. Also, I am a go-to person for binge eating parties. My travel mantra is to “Smart Plan” my vacations. Doesn’t it happens sometimes that you are disappointed when you visit a place because it’s not like how you saw on someone’s Instagram post. Well, it happened to me as well. And that’s why I like to spend a lot of time to read about my travel destination and put together a perfect plan. Through Bruised Baggages, I want to bring real life experiences and genuine reviews to help you craft your best vacation.
