Travel, Books, Food - Indian Wanderer Raised in Africa: About Me

About Me

Hi All,
Thank you for choosing to go through my page.

My name is Soumya Nambiar. I am an Engineer by profession and I currently work, study and live in Bangalore, India.

I grew up in Tanzania, Africa. My parents love traveling as well and I have been traveling ever since I can remember. This love for traveling has allowed me to travel to 27 countries in 5 continents around the World. Unfortunately, I have still not finished exploring my country completely and I am still trying to accomplish that. I am still traveling hoping that I can travel to all the places I dream about. I mostly travel with friends and family.

In addition, I am a bookworm as well as a foodie. You can find some food and book related blogs here as well. I love dancing as well but currently that is on pause mode.

I recently started travel blogging in June 2015 and hopefully I can do enough to keep the momentum going. I have also been published in places like Huffington Post, Deccan Herald, Times of India etc.

Favorite Quote: "The World is a book and those who do not travel read only a page" -
