Gul for travel
No vacation plans for summer yet? Gul Panag offers some inspiration.brunch Updated: May 25, 2013 17:55 IST
I love to travel and I travel a lot! Last year, on average, I travelled 18 days every month! I also try and take a three- to four-day break every six weeks.
This is probably because my father was in the army; we have lived in many parts of the world. So I have the nomad in my genes! I enjoy trying new things, meeting different people and eating different kinds of food. I enjoy the adventure travel brings.
And travelling is much more than just sightseeing. It’s absorbing, experiencing, and having fun! When we drove across Switzerland recently, my entire itinerary was dictated by my Twitter followers – they would tell me what to do, where to go, and it was great fun!
I’ve just returned from the Andamans; it was quite amazing. We dove, swam and lazed on the beach...
it was great! I love how untouched a lot of the islands still are. Many places like the Maldives or the south of France have this opulent take on luxury travel, which is great. But the Andamans is just raw beauty that really does touch your soul in a very different way.
My plan this summer? Munich!
