Such Fans make me beam with Happiness!

‘Be on the road’ has always been synonymous with ‘living the dream’. What started as a crazy moment in 2008 is today my bread and butter. And I am happy that I am still able to live that dream in spite of the various challenges that have kept coming my way.

I am always super happy when this very blog of mine help people to live their dream. When I traveled alone across the country on my motorcycle, people dubbed me as crazy. Today, I see many dreamers go on such journeys and many more who are thinking vigorously about attempting one such crazy ride in their life. Guess, we Indians are no more afraid to live our dream!

Countless number of people have approached me through the blog seeking help, direction, tips, funding and much more. I have tried helping them out in the best way I could. In fact, it was these questions posed by all my readers that instigated me to start the ‘Travel Tips’ section. And I am over the moon when I hear that these tips are helping people get closer to their dream.

Usually, my readers reach out to me only at the beginning of their dream, but it is very rarely that someone sends me an email thanking my website on the completion of their trip. When such an email comes, I pretty much lie back and beam with happiness. Here is one such story from Krishna Pandy, a young rider from Chennai. He rode alone from Delhi to Chennai in 14 days. Read his story below with the belief that you can always live your dream irrespective of its craziness quotient!
