Hi, I am Ankit, from India! Human by heart and a product manager by profession. I love to explore places, people, and personas. LTP is an initiative to re-design my life and not wait for the retirement that may never come.
My travel journey started in March 2014 when I went to meet a college friend in Ambala district and we ended up on a road trip to the snowy mountains in Narkanda, Himachal Pradesh. This trip was life changing for me. And after this, I never stopped to explore more.
I think it was the beauty and calmness of the nature that left me surprised. I got flooded with questions after looking at the scenic beauty around me. Why can’t you stay with me back in my city? Why are you so far away? Why can’t I see you every morning, come out to play with you, bask in your glory and go back to my room to meet you again next morning? And the mother nature answered all this in one single sentence “ What if I ask you the same?” And here is how my quest for nature began.
Now traveling is not about just having Maggi at 15000 feet above the ground or clicking pictures with your friends. For me, it’s more about making new friends and relishing the local food, people and stays. I met a scuba diver, a flight attendant, an architect, a scientist, a yoga teacher, bloggers, an artist etc. And they all had one thing in common DREAMS.
The most important thing which traveling taught me in the last 3 years is EMPATHY. Don’t judge people by their looks or words. There are hidden stories behind everything and everyone is special. You just need to calm down and listen to them.
