Welcome to my travel blog

Namaste! My name is Nehal Tibrewal and I am an avid traveler from India. I have big dreams about changing the world through travelling. I believe traveling can broaden our lens through which we see the world and make us more accepting towards different cultures. Travel has always been an essential part about my life because I never learnt how to say no to new experiences in school. I persuaded my parents to send me to a boarding school in a completely new city when I was 8 years old and my life only went uphill from there. Since 2007, I have lived in 5 different places and visited around 100+ places in 20 different countries around the world. All these unique experiences have increased my self-confidence, broadened my perspective, and made me more independent. Due to these adventures, I have become a global citizen who consciously strives to improve other people’s lives through innovative ways. Stay tuned to learn more about all my spontaneous experiences and get some great insights about all the places I’ve been to.

Discover new places

This picture is from Havana, Cuba. I decided to go to Cuba even when I don’t speak Spanish. My phone did not have service the entire time and I could not use google maps to navigate the city. However, it turned out to be one of my best trips. If you want to find cool places like this check out my blog section.

Find fun activities

I held a snake for the first time in Bali, Indonesia and it was one of the craziest things I have done. I was so scared to hold the snake’s head because it moved the entire time.
