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.

We began exploring the Travel bug like any other amateur traveler, 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. It’s been almost 7 years. Yayy!!

We have different perspectives on travel & life on a whole; We are the Nonconformists and love being so.

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 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.

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 a decade of experience in Risk Advisory and Wealth Management & 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 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 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 you’ll find here.
