A TRAVELLER'S ODYSSEYS

Roamer. Wanderer. Nomad. Vagabond.

Hi, I’m Jatin.

Thank you for stopping by.

Travel is what I like and tales from my odysseys is what this blog is about.

Well that’s about it you know! Here is the longer version for those interested:

An outdoor enthusiast, I am a full time traveler and travel writer, and I call myself a storyteller. I travel for newer experiences, for surprises and for the unknown. And of course, for the highway chai (tea)! Adventure travel and road-trips are my most favourite travel genres which reflects in the experiences of biking over 70,000 kms in India and Bhutan in the past 4 years that I proudly carry. To eliminate the time factor from my travels and to soak the essence of places better, I quit my job around 7 months ago (May’17). I have since then been traveling almost non stop, spending 81 days biking around 3,700 kms in the Himalayas with my tent, backpacking in Coastal Gujarat and Kerala, and I have just returned from my solo trek to Mount Everest Base Camp.

Extensive travel has made me transcend beyond the destinations and delve more into experiences, I have come to rely on the open road and the plans and surprises it has for me. And to introduce the same feeling of embracing those surprises, I have founded my own company: Wander Gupt. This, I say, is not just a travel company but a concept and philosophy of travel.

There is something about the road trips in particular though which make up gear up on my bike and ride the unfamiliar highways.

I have done multiple long rides from 300 to 1,100 kms with friends over the weekends. And also, a couple of 1,800 – 1,900 kms long solo rides have been accomplished where I carried my tent along. I shifted to Gurgaon from Hyderabad in 2015 – on my bike. And that was another 1800 kms long ride from South to the North.

Maybe that’s why HolidayIQ listed this site among India’s best blogs in road trips category. Link

I was also featured by Touristlink on their list of Travel Blogs one should follow. Link

Media Mentions:

I have recently been covered by Sandesh, leading newspaper in Gujarati. Link

I have given a travel talk on FM 104 where I shared my travel tales and experiences with RJ Ekta. Link

That’s about it for now, do let me know if you like what you see!
