It’s that time of the year again—you have so many leave credits you haven’t used yet and your impulse to travel is strong. You need to get unstuck from the routine for a while and get new experiences, meet new people, discover new cultures, and marvel at the beauty of different places you’ve never seen before.

The cool breeze welcomes you, it brings that fragrant smell of mud, tree trunks, and fresh leaves. You look down and wow, you’ve come so far. You feel great!


Or maybe you’re itching to roam around a foreign city and drive to the outskirts of town—observing people as they do their trades, immersing yourself with the locals, listening to their stories and capturing their candid lifestyle with your camera lens.
