The long version is we set sail on 28th November 2012 (and that is a very important day for the one among the two of us) from our rented house in London to travel the world for an year. We have been out and about for an year now and nowhere close to even halfway through. But our rucksacks which we try to keep light and are now overflowing with loads of memories, stories and pictures. And they are getting heavy. So here we have arrived creating a port of transfer to unload our experiences and share them around, to send you love and inspiration if you want to kick that desk job and give what we are doing a try. Mostly we thought it would be fun to have conversations about travel with people who are far away and love traveling just as much.
It was love at first sight. And I mean it. I was sifting through some blogposts on indiblogger when I found a rather interesting name, Empty Rucksack. It made me smile and I decided to read more about the story behind this creative name.
In their own words
And before I could even say I like these guys a lot, I was on night calls with the better half of the duo (Ishwinder!) exchanging notes on blogging, marriage traveling and what not.
You can read the guest post they did for this blog here.
We are also co-admins for a facebook group on travel called ‘India Travelers Club‘. And have had some fun moments together there creating discussions, photo collages and what not.
And while we are at the subject of this club, I thought why not spread some blog love to the other not-so-active-in-blogging admin of the same group. Siddhartha Varshney who blogs at Pseudo Rationalist . Now I am tagging him in this post so that you all can help me get this man out of his writing slumber and kick start his almost dead blog!
Connecting it with Write Tribe’s Festival of Words who are the soul reason my writer’s block is slowly fading away. This particular post for their theme ‘blog love‘.
