–5 Continents & 25 Countries–
It is just as simple as something we all dream of “Giving up our Boring Job and Pursuing Our Passion.”(P.S: I love my job) However it is easier said than done but there is definitely something about love for travel that gives us the power to take that final decision and replace that desk job with a never ending itenary! Such is the story of Lakshmi Srinath who gave up her career to explore the world at each step.
She blogs all her travel stories at her blog and is always adding some tips for the benefits of her readers, However the USP of her blog is her power to narrate her experiences in the form of beautiful stories.She thinks that everyone loves stories and they are not at all judged !

For me, festivals always meant a get together with all my cousins and friends who would come home for Dussehra. These are the times I sit back with my cousins and friends and have our gala chat sessions. I remember discussing with them how the gifts that we give ourselves and our families have grown costlier over the years. Like in my younger days, I used to gift my cousins un-branded clothes, now all of them have turned branded. Take myself, for example, I started my tours just around India; now I often travel abroad. All our demands and the gifts we give have only grown costlier over the years. During one such conversation, one of my cousins told me about her investment in lifelong insurance plans from ICICI Prudential Life for her long term goals like gifting her husband a SUV car. That moment it struck me, all my investments are for my short term goals and I needed to invest something for my long term goals. Hence I started saving small amounts and putting my money into lifelong insurance plans from ICICI Prudential Life. The plan provides me with the dual benefit of growing my money and securing the money from uncertainties in life. Now, I too have something planned for my long term goals.

However for her it was one of the smoothest transitions , because she embedded travel in her lifestyle and did not limit its capacity as a potential career alternative! The best part of travelling is undoubtedly exploring unseen places and meeting new people, and the worst part has got to be the transit at airports.Her travel tip for all the people is to travel alone because it is then that you get a chance to mix with the local people and that is a major part of the fun.
Her travel style is very different than others because she has planted herself in the middle ground for Lakshmi it is not about being a hippie traveller or a luxury addict her most preferred stay option is always Airbnb, because it is always about the local touch of the place that excites her!
