Hola Nomads!

“Wherever you go becomes a part of you somehow.” 
― Anita Desai

If there was one thing that I had loved since childhood , its been the constant process of re-discovering myself through others,in the eyes of people I never knew or people who now I know or a Destination which inspires me or a Destination I find difficult to let go.On first glance,I am this chirpy bubbly girl who loves hanging around.Questions such as 'Behind The Scenes' have always fascinated me.The world is a beautiful place to be.And my blog an answer to many of them.

2 and a half years back,I quit my IT job to travel and started a blog at the end of Nov 2011.I regret not even once on why I did that.Along the way,I met fascinating people and had great opportunities which now shapes my future in a way I had never thought it to be. Ankionthemove is a personalized Stylish Travel and Adventure Blog which speaks about what I felt about the place and how could you feel the same.I realized a lot of us,do not want to read so much(It came out first from my brother Di how can I read so much but he would comfortably glance at the video for hours).So I started a comprehensive Travel video along with the article on every place which tells you how to go about a place in detail.No fancy photos, no random snippets.The travel videos are of 3-5 minutes which speak about the place the way I have experienced it - so your life becomes easier - plus it comes with the write-ups and the experience.Bingo! Isn't that a perfect combo.Some of my Favorite Travel & Adventure Videos are:

I do neither believe in solo travel nor leisure travel.I believe in meeting people as they are.I believe in smiling faces that inspires me.I believe in being part of the game or the sport.I believe in travelling not to add a country to my list but to discover it in-out.I believe in adventure sports and the inspiration behind it.I believe that other bloggers are as good as I am.I believe nothing is impossible.That's me,jolly and free-spirited @ Tanishq As beautiful as your work.

  6. Hi Ankita,

    I have been through your blog on BOllywood films and their locations, I would like to know whether you are only interested in finding the locations out of India or in India as well. I would request you to visit my page: http://www.tellmethelocations.com/PLACES/INDIA.php

    and write something about India as well so that when people visit your blog, they really get admire by the beauty of India.

    When you are such a great adventurist please go ahead and explore some locations of India as well in your blog and let your fans know about the same. Please reply.

    ReplyDelete
  7. @Tell Me The Locations:Well honestly,I have been to most places in India,and I am now discovering shores overseas.

    You have got an amazing page,and I have kept your advice in mind.

    It takes time to write about all 25 states,which I eventually will in course of time,but as I said,its gonna take some time.

  10. Hi anki
    Im currently (literally) studying your bhutan posts as im planning on going there. Im trying to follow yout route although im not sure where u exited bhutan from. Im planning entry from indian (im indian btw) at phuentsholin, going up to paro and thimpu, and punakha from there as im dying to visit the temple of the devine madman (did you go there?) But after that I am stumped as to what to do or where to go. I want to exit from samdrup jongkhar so id basically being seeing the country west to east. Any advise, ideas would be superb. On an informative jote -im going to be travelling solo, is that advisable for a small sized 25yr old indian girl? Iv bagpacked solo through himachal, rajasthan and a tiny bit of south india and mostly gotten back in one piece save for the loads of times iv had trouble with indian men along the way, which is surprising as im completely indian, speak hindi et all. Will I hhave any trouble in bhutan? Indian bias's that you came across? And how much of the monastries will I be able to see if im going solo everywhere?
    Would love to hear what you have to say about this.
    Regards
    Mallika
