A Traveller and The Indian way to travel

A hardcore backpacker who is passionate about his travel. Photogrphy is his second passion and likes to call himself "The Lord of the Camera". Is obssesed about shooting legs especially his own lazy legs. Alx Barta a German traveller whome finds the concept of Moustache ridiculously funny. After his first visit to India I vouched not to return back to this filthy and overpopulated country but this ishis fourth visit here. Has travelled as far as Afghanisthan and Madagascar. Hoep to visit Cuba soon. Over a chilled beer he made me realise that we never are alone when we travel. And that it takes a lot of strength to travel alone. He said that to travel passionately we need to surrender our insecurities to our destiny. In just a matter of hours with him I learn a new lesson in travelling. Funny how people can change your way of thinking even if it is in a small way in just a matter of few hours.



Alex and his obession - Legs

It is not very popular to find a lot of Indian backpackers travelling within the country or outside but this typeof travel is catching up fast as a trend in India. The differnence would be that foreign backpackers spend every penny what they ave and travel to lengths and we Indians are a bit cautious about getting broke totally and usually preferto save some money esp for pursuing the passion to travel. Slowly but steadily we are learning to appreaciate the charm in travelling the poor mans way and we are understanding that you really can taste the true flavour of travel through backpacking
