About Priyanka


Nestled along the banks of the sacred confluence of rivers, Allahabad, my hometown, radiates a distinct energy, renowned as the site of the world’s largest pilgrimage gathering. This vibrant backdrop infused my upbringing with a deep reverence for nature’s beauty and the spirit of exploration, laying the foundation for my enduring love affair with travel.

From my earliest days, I eagerly orchestrated intricate plans for my summer escapades, brimming with anticipation and excitement. It was during my pursuit of MBA in Bangalore that I began embarking on frequent jaunts with friends, savoring the thrill of discovery with each new destination. However, it was not until my inaugural international voyage to Europe that the profound truth of the adage, “The world is a book and those who don’t travel read only one page,” truly resonated within me, igniting an insatiable desire to traverse the globe.

Guided by my profession as a Financial Analyst, I embarked on a quest to unravel the tapestry of India, one state at a time, each journey unveiling a kaleidoscope of cultural treasures and natural wonders.

Two years into my professional journey, fate intervened in the sun-drenched shores of Bali, where serendipity led me to encounter the love of my life amidst the enchanting backdrop of paradise. For me, travel is not merely a pastime but a source of profound magic, infusing each moment with a sense of wonder and anticipation for the adventures that lie ahead.

Embracing my travel mantra to “Travel in Style,” I relish the opportunity to don my finest attire and immerse myself in the myriad delights of diverse cuisines and cultures. Capturing the essence of my explorations through the lens of my camera and penning my travel narratives, I am compelled to share the enchantment and allure of my adventures with fellow enthusiasts.

Through Bruised Baggages, I aspire to offer a guiding hand to fellow travelers, helping to craft your own unforgettable experiences and navigate the pages of the world’s vast and wondrous book with grace and style. 🌍✨

In the kaleidoscope of memories that adorn my childhood, there exists a cherished gem: the Hindi show “Duniya ki sair karlo,” beckoning viewers to “Explore the World.” Its enchanting allure wove a tapestry of fascination around me, etching indelible impressions in the corridors of my mind. Little did I know then that this fascination would burgeon into a lifelong passion for travel, igniting a flame that would guide my footsteps across continents.

As a Software Developer hailing from the vibrant tapestry of Rajasthan, India, where each corner resonates with echoes of history and culture, I found myself drawn not only to lines of code but also to the beckoning call of distant lands. With the first taste of independence that came with earning, I seized the opportunity to traverse the expanse of Europe, each step awakening within me a thirst for exploration.

Gradually, my journey unfolded, revealing the diverse hues of India’s myriad landscapes as I ventured across its states, accompanied by the laughter and camaraderie of friends. Yet, it was amidst the idyllic shores of Bali that fate intervened, introducing me to a serendipitous encounter with my love that changed the course of my life.

A nature enthusiast with a penchant for technology, I found solace in the embrace of towering mountains and the serenity of sun-kissed beaches, mirroring the allure of the twinkling lights adorning the Eiffel Tower. It was this harmonious blend of nature’s grandeur and mankind’s ingenuity that drew me to the bustling metropolis of Washington, where high mountains and high technology converge in a symphony of innovation.

Luxury vacations and melodic strains of the guitar hold a special place in my heart, as does the joy of indulging in gastronomic delights amidst the company of cherished friends. Yet, amidst the glitz and glamour of travel lies a sobering truth: the disparity between expectation and reality, often magnified by the curated perfection of social media.

Thus, armed with the wisdom gleaned from past experiences, I adopted a mantra of “Smart Planning,” meticulously researching each destination to craft the perfect itinerary. Through Bruised Baggages, my endeavor is to peel back the veneer of glossy postcards and present travelers with authentic experiences and genuine reviews, helping to curate your own unforgettable adventures.
