If you feel that your travelling streak is unmatched and no one understands your passion of exploring new places, a drive to Kunzum Cafe in Hauz Khas Village will help you meet your travel soulmates.
Kunzum Cafe, named after Kunzum Pass located at a height of 4,590 metres to the north of Leh (Ladakh), is the Capital’s first travel cafe that makes space for travel buffs and writers to hang out and share their globe-trotting experiences. One can browse through travel journals, prepare itineraries, buy pictures and even write books at this one-of-its-kind joint.
World’s a home
The cafe can seat 20 people. And unlike the cafes in the city, “one does not have to pay for coffee, tea and the cookies — the only edibles the cafe serves. Payment is voluntary. People can drop their contribution in a drop box,” says photographer-travel writer Ajay Jain, who owns the cafe.
The motto of the cafe, which opened its doors this week, is to bind the Capital’s discerning community of travellers. The cafe has a mini-library too. One can also post pictures and travelogues on a wall magazine and on the Kunzum’s writers’ site in Facebook, write books at the wi-fi compatible cafe and buy travel-related texts and photographs.
Before walking out of the cafe, visitors pin details about their last holidays and the forthcoming ones on a postcard board for the community to know.
