Twipper of the Week: Sankara from Be On The Road.


Current city: Bangalore, India

Age: 34

Total countries visited: I don’t count the number of countries or cities. I live for the moment.

What makes you interesting: I am living my dream of experiencing our beautiful planet, and I have made this my active money-making career.

What brands do you love: I am not particular about brands. Anything that helps me meet my purpose with a bit of oomph makes the cut for me.

Best travel advice: It’s a gorgeous world out there. Snap out of your dream and experience it in reality.

What does “Travel” mean to you: It defines who I am.

What is the biggest lesson you’ve learned from traveling: I have learned that I have many hidden talents and I am stronger than I think I am. I found out I was a good teacher when I went on volunteering to schools across the world. I found out that I was tougher than I thought as I could easily overcome all the hardships I faced on my travels (accidents, surgeries, losing passport, being stuck in a war zone), etc.

What is the most interesting food you have ever tried and where: Stinky Tofu in Taiwan. I would definitely eat Stinky Tofu again. It is so stinky that people standing half a kilometer away have to close their noses, but if you somehow manage to eat it, you will realize that the taste is nothing like the smell. Rather, it tastes delicious. Something similar is the Durian fruit from Malaysia.

#1 thing you must do when traveling: Stay with a local in a local district and try to live like them even if only for a couple of days.

If you were given a free trip tomorrow, where would you go: Iceland because I love raw nature, volcanoes, stunning landscapes and insane amounts of remoteness.
