How it All Started
Hey there, we’re Varsha and Adi, the faces behind Wander and Beyond. Let’s take you back to where it all began. Picture two nature-loving souls from India with a deep passion for travel. We couldn’t ignore that itch to do something extraordinary in the world of exploration. That’s when the idea struck us – why not pack our bags and move to a different country? But which one? That was the million-dollar question.
So, we did what any curious adventurers would do in this digital age. We dove headfirst into the vast ocean of YouTube. Imagine us, watching nearly 250-300 videos on different countries, from the comfort of our home. It was like embarking on a whirlwind world tour without leaving our couch.
And guess what? The content we devoured was like gold! It was enough to help us make a life-altering decision – we were going to move to Bali. Bali, with its vibrant culture, stunning landscapes, and warm people, had won our hearts.
Originally, we thought we’d take a quick test run by visiting the place before making such a monumental leap. But those YouTube videos, oh boy, they provided such an in-depth understanding of Bali that we ended up selling our house, bidding farewell to our car, packing our bags, and without hesitation, we embarked on a life-changing journey to Bali. It was a leap of faith, fueled by the power of digital exploration.
What We Learnt
As we ventured into the world of travel blogging, we quickly realized our mission – to help fellow travelers get the right information about destinations, resorts, and activities. And here’s the secret sauce: we didn’t have to rediscover these places ourselves. There was a wealth of knowledge out there, shared by experts, influencers, and passionate bloggers who had personally experienced these adventures.
Just like we had watched those countless YouTube videos to make our Bali decision, we wanted to simplify the travel planning process for others. Our goal became crystal clear – to distill the sea of information available into essential, no-nonsense pointers. We wanted to be the guiding light, just like those YouTube videos had been for us.
What We Stand For
Wander and Beyond isn’t just a travel blog; it’s a commitment to make your travel experiences richer and more accessible. Here’s what we hold close to our hearts:
- Sharing Personal Experiences: We believe in the magic of shared experiences. Every journey is a story waiting to be told, and we’re here to share ours and those of fellow travelers. Each experience is unique and deserves to be celebrated.
- Factual and Vetted Information: Early on, we understood the limitations of a single blogger’s perspective. It’s impossible for one person to uncover every detail about a destination. That’s why we decided to bring together the collective wisdom of several bloggers and experts, ensuring that every piece of information is vetted by someone who’s been there, done that.
- Saving Your Precious Time: We get it – your time is valuable. We’re here to be your time-saving travel companion. Our blogs condense the wealth of information from various sources into a single, concise read. No more spending hours watching videos or reading multiple blogs. We’ve got you covered.
- Concise Wisdom: Think of us as the modern-day storytellers. We take 60 minutes of content and distill it into a quick 6-minute read. You get all the essential information you need without the information overload.
