Welcome to my little slice on the internet called Travel, Books & Food. I started this blog in 2015 to write about all the places I have been to and over the years, this blog has endeavoured to help people around the world plan their trips.

Here you will find planning guides, travel itineraries, vegetarian travel guides, Indian visa guides and so much more.

I  travel solo, with my partner, with family and with my friends too.

My parents are from Kerala, I grew up in Tanzania, I have lived in more than 10 cities including Mexico City and I am back to Bangalore for now.

I also am an entrepreneur and if I am not working on the site, I will be running behind that business of ours.


After being a solo traveler for so many years, I am a compulsive planner. Most of my trips outside India are extensively planned (even though most times they don’t go according to plan). I also have a full-time job, which means that I have to maximise my vacation days by planning short trip itineraries. I also love road trips. Find some of my extensive short itineraries and planning guides below.


Travel Guides

Find detailed travel guides here based on continent or country wise. I am forever adding new content and one day I will have a detailed travel guide for every country I have been to.

Visa Guides

As an Indian traveller, one of the toughest things while traveling outside India is on how to secure a visa. It differs from country to country and I have written extensively on how to procure a visa for Indians.

Vegetarian posts

As a vegetarian traveller for the past 15 years, I am always on the lookout for the best vegetarian food around the world. I write extensive guides on both vegetarian and vegan travel around the world.

BLOgging Resources

When I started Travel, Books & Food back in 2015, I had no clue on how blogging or website design looked like.

But over the years, I have learnt a lot on my own and I write posts on blogging from time to time. All these posts are written from experience and are foolproof when it comes to implementing on your website.
