She grew up in Tanzania and she is a self-confessed Africa lover.

Over the past 6 years, she has written numerous blogs about her adventures around the world. She definitely has plenty of those in close to 45 countries in 6 continents. She focuses on solo female and Indian vegetarian travel with a strong focus on luxury travel.

Let us clear some things first
You already know the answer to this one. But let me just repeat that for you. The answer is a big NO. Why, you may ask?
Let me make it a little simpler for you. I have a highly demanding day job. After this demanding day job, I come home most days and then work on my blog till 2AM-3AM. So you do understand the amount of work that has gone in setting up and getting the blog to where it is now. After all this effort, if someone asks you to work free, how would you feel? So let us not demean the value of me and my blog by asking me to work for free.
I always love helping out fellow travelers. If you are one and you would love some tips on places I have been to, shoot me a mail or message me on Insta. I always respond and I don’t charge for this.
No, I don’t allow free guest posts. All content in this website has been written by me. I am open to Sponsored posts and if you would like to have a sponsored post written by me, send me an email at [email protected].

I love my blog and I get my highest number of followers/readers from this channel every month. Most of my traffic is from Google organic search. I also know to run ads.
I have a love and hate relationship with Instagram. I love sharing my photos and stories on Instagram but I hate the fact that it is so difficult to grow on this platform.
Facebook is definitely one of my favorite social media platforms even though it is not my strongest. I love it for the fact that it helps make so many meaningful connections.
Pinterest is the strongest social media channel when it comes to followers in my case. I get a steady flow of traffic from Pinterest every month and I love it.
I have been active on Twitter for more than 10 years now. I still tweet regularly but I am very selective when it comes to using this social media channel.
I have a tiny youtube channel and I am not very regular when it comes to uploading videos on a frequent basis. Hopefully, this year, all of it will change.
SOME OF THE BRANDS I HAVE COLLABORATED WITH
I am stunned and speechless.
This is not a review, this is called a tribute. Rarely have we been more flattered! I don’t know how to gratify you. Soumya, a million thanks for your beautiful story-telling.
“I am grateful to you Soumya for helping to spread the good news that is Ireland. I am sure your post and future posts will prove an incentive for your readers to discover Ireland for themselves.
Would like to thank you for creating this very precise and helpful article. There is so many unreliable, ready to fool options out there but you have saved us a lot of time and effort. Great job.
This is a great report, Soumya . Thanks! We’ve been trying to get this info from others for sometime now but haven’t been very successful
Email is the best way to reach me and I respond to all my emails.
You can also send me a DM on Instagram. But I don’t check it frequently.
Last option is to send me a message on Facebook. As a backup.
