I'm Jithin, welcome to my travel blog- The Roads and Beyond.
I come from Kerala, the southern state of India. While not travelling, I work as an automotive design engineer.
“Bite by the travel bug”
I was not really bitten by any bug till now in order to fall in love with travel. On the other hand, I am very grateful to my parents who has taken me out to show places when I was a kid. My love for travel started there.
From college, I got good friends who are equally interested in travelling. More journeys happened during that time. Slowly over the time, I was transformed to a person who finds happiness going unknown places and see new things.
Moved to Chennai after studies and got busy in the professional world. Very soon I felt something is missing in life even though I love my job. Later I understood that this happen to everyone and they call it “ Quarter-life crisis”.
I realised that am hooked to travel, the one thing that gives me satisfaction more than anything. So the next question comes, “Are you going to quit your job for travelling?”.
During this time I read about many travellers who had left their 9-5 jobs to travel the world and make money while travelling. I must say that I admire them. They are the inspiration behind starting this blog.
But my thoughts went in another way.
Is it necessary to quit the job to fulfil my travel dreams?
I have seen many of my colleagues who wants to travel but not able to do that. They ask how I am getting this much time. What I tell them is simple, with proper planning and use of time, yes it is possible.
Travel doesn't mean you have to buy a big backpack, fill your stuff and catch the next flight to your dream destination.
I am very happy if I can be a small inspiration to those who wish to be on the road. “The Roads and Beyond” is the outcome of that. I will be sharing my experiences while I was on road, stories from my city, about off-beat destinations and all information needed for a budget travel plan.
That’s about me and “The Roads and Beyond” for now.
