Hello!

We are Rishabh & Nirali –  lovebirds, explorers and awesomeness personified

Our was an traditional arranged marriage – we went for a couple of family organized dates, chatted a few hours over the phone before deciding we wanted to spend our lives together. Quite surprisingly, the experience was much better than we both expected and what we really connected on was our passion for travel.

Like all new couples we were in a phase of discovering each other, after a while we decided the best way to move forwarded was to discover the world together and in the process discover ourselves. Both being the free spirited kind, the idea appealed to both of us and we became the Gypsy Couple.

We traveled alone, we’ve traveled alone together, we’ve traveled with friends and family and each has given us a different experience to cherish.

Modified Palaces, Tree houses and Hostels intrigue us equally for every place has a story. We are the story  hunters of the old, scourging the lands for the new and interesting. Between us we’ve covered the length and breadth of India, some parts of Europe, a bit of South East Asia, South Africa and China.

We visit as tourists, stay as locals and leave as prodigal sons with the hope of returning back. Our Bucket List includes the Machu Picchu trail, the Amazon rainforest, trekking up Mt. Kilimanjaro,an igloo stay someway around the North Pole, being a certified Sky Diver and the ever elusive Antarctica. Of course there’s more on our personal bucket lists, which we’ll tell you someday over a cup of coffee – your treat🙂

We are full time travelers but part time writers, so please bear with us if we do not upload images from the jungles of Africa while we are running away from some wild beast protecting their domain. We also tend to get a bit carried away by the sheer beauty of some places that we would rather post images which anyways speak a thousand words and some we chose to use a thousand words to describe instead.

If you are where we plan to be next, give us a shout, we’ll drop by for a chat, exchange some stories and become friends for life. You can also follow us at fb & twitter and make us  (almost) World famous.

  2. Thanks guys for following our blog! We love your story here🙂 It is so wonderful that you found you connected on a travel level. We have had the same discussion now three days running with different bloggers – travel puts every relationship to the test – so if you can travel together, chances are looking wonderful that you can live together🙂
    Great to be connected with you!!

  3. Thank you for following our blog. Through our photography and words we hope to inspire others to get out and see the world. And perhaps through those travels the world will become a smaller and less threatening place as we discover the many kindred spirits who share our own hopes and aspirations. As Mark Twain said, “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.”

    Here’s a bit of advice to help you fulfill your travel dreams. If I had saved and invested 20% of my income I could have started following my dreams 10 years earlier.

    Anyway, it’s never too early or late to follow your heart. Make time for the people, causes or work you truly care about. Cheers, Wooly and Raeski.
