“Success is a journey, not a destination. The doing is often more important than the outcome.”
– Arthur Ashe
For me success is those small little steps that I take to move forward and to become a better person. I measure my success by all the kind and beautiful messages I receive from people whom I know and sometimes from people whom I do not know. These messages motivate me to do more of what I am doing right now. They make me feel grateful and loved. On this page, I have collated and tried to portray some of these wonderful stories or messages I have received till date.
A girl who travels through postcards
A year ago, a girl from one of the South East Asian countries messaged me on Instagram. She wanted me to send her postcards from all the places I traveled. Her passion is to collect postcards from all over the World. She has never traveled far from home and she travels the World through the postcards that are sent to her by the various travelers around the World. From that day till today, I have been sending her postcards.
Indian married woman
I received a message on Facebook about an Indian married woman who loved looking at my blog and pictures. Whenever she felt let down by life, she would cheer herself up by reading my travel stories and pictures.
Travel advise to Vanuatu
Sometime ago I had received a message on Instagram from an unknown follower who was traveling to Vanuatu. She needed information about where to stay, what are the must see places and where to eat.
She had done some of the things I had suggested and had messaged me for helping her out. Well after few months, I realized that she was one of the judges of Miss South Africa USA pageant.

“Hey, Okay I don’t know how to put this but I love your story on Facebook and I feel so proud and inspired that as a woman you travel alone.”
