Our Journey

“We Travel not to escape Life, but for Life not to escape US”

One fine evening enjoying a dainty snack relishing our travel pictures, the thought of compilation of all those special moments in form of stories crossed our minds. Just as we archive our pictures why not gather our travel stories, adventures and experiences too!!! And voila ‘Untraveled Routes’ came into existence 😀

As like any other amateur traveler, we started traveling in conventional manner but soon realized that all places left you with the same feeling of being still trapped in the city life. Gradually we tried & began to explore untraveled routes, and contentment started flowing in and so did the love for travel and gaining new insights. Here is how it all began – When the Travel Bug caught us!!!

We have different perspectives on travel & life on a whole; and would love to share it with the world here. We truly believe this is a great platform 🙂

Untraveled Routes is the brainchild of Ashish & Charu Sharma. Ashish & Charu are soul-mates, have been committed forever and decided to settle in Delhi post wedlock.

Just a little background here  –

We both have majors in Finance (MBA) and a part of us has been working in the corporate world (the other bigger part is busy exploring!!!). Ashish has wealth of experience in Risk Advisory and Wealth Management & has been with the financial industry for 8 years now & currently works as a Sr. Banker. Charu has 5+ years of experience as an Investment Banker. She also authors articles for Trak.in. Charu hails from Madhya Pradesh, later relocated to Ahmedabad, spent a brief period in Bangalore, then stayed in Mumbai for almost 8 years and currently is in New Delhi.

We love to archive our travel stories and craft handmade albums too. We appreciate every tiny thing in our lives and feel blessed, our idea of having great time is getting involved in something simple yet unusual.

We are fitness enthusiasts, adore swimming, jogging and working out at the gym. We do keep track of nutrition as well; strongly believe in – Healthy body sustains healthy mind 🙂 We love nature and adore every aspect of it and therefore all our plans are designed in a manner to stay as close as possible to it and enjoy nature in its purest theme and form. We plan to highlight food, culture, festivals, adventure and everything incidental to Travel.

We realized that the three C’s i.e. company, clients and our cubicle will never be able to match-up to the most imperative ‘C’ – CREATIVITY. We will also soon be caught up in the vicious corporate circle. We just wanted more from life & have been on quest to explore & new ways of doing things; we have been highly involved in travel, photography, writing and all other interesting stuff that will unravel soon on ‘Untraveled Routes’. Untraveled Routes is not limited to only routes unexplored but much more.

Untraveled Routes is aimed at helping avid travelers to discover and unravel travel treasures. Hope you have an amazing ride with us!!!

Cheerios 🙂

  30. Hi, I finally managed to read your travel stories today, and they are quite an entertaining read. Why only such few places though? Eagerly waiting for you to explore more – I would suggest the heavenly North East as your next destination. 🙂 good day.

    • Thank you friend!! Oh how we would love to cover more and more places. Actually we embraced a new phase in life two years back… We had a baby boy 🙂 post then Travel took a backseat. Though we did Spiti tour of 12 days with our 11months boy but after that haven’t been able to do much. Looking forward to visit North East.

  35. Namaste Ashish and Charu! Nice to read about your travels and inspiration. Hard to imagine, with all your combined interests that you’re still tied to the corporate life 😉 Thanks for dropping by my blog, and following it.. and for giving me a glimpse into yours. Although I’m now based in Bali, I’d love to make it to India too one day… Blessings, Amit

  41. It comes as an interesting travel tip, ‘all places left you with the same feeling of being still trapped in the city life.’ Haven’t really traveled that much but would love to do. The very few places that I know are Mumbai, Pune, Goa, Delhi, Agra and Haryana-very less as well as Mauritius where I am currently based.

    • Thank you for your positive feedback!! In fact, we also began our travels with famous and mostly known places, it’s only with time we started exploring and finding new ways to explore destinations. Looking forward to stay connected. Btw I have a cousin who stays in Mauritius for last three years now and he can’t stop raving about how beautiful it is!!

      • https://polldaddy.com/js/rating/rating.jsHey! It’s a small world isn’t it. In fact, I am not particularly fond of the place. The island is too small and everything close down so early. The pace of life is very small in Mauritius as well. Thinking to leave and be back to India:)

      • https://polldaddy.com/js/rating/rating.jsIn fact, my parents shfted there and grew up. But, not a place that I like. Gimme India any time. Worked as a journalist there and now a freelance consultant for a Brit based PR firm. I also helped launched a magazine for expats run for an Indian company before it closed down. I stayed for years in Pune and Mumbai. So, you understand my thing. Big cities and small island…hehe
