What’s our story? As kids, we didn’t travel much and most of our journeys ended in our hometowns in southern India. I guess, that’s what made us want to travel. We’ve been travelling for nearly a decade and haven’t explored as much as we’d hope to.
On our trips, Basil is the photographer, travel partner/hubby and sounding board. He dreams of far-flung places (might have something to do with his avid interest in stamps & notes) to explore. I (Cheryl) think being different from each other is what makes us click. So, while he takes hours to photograph people or places; I choose to either get lost in my thoughts or talk to local people. In a way, our blog represents the best of both of us.
Why ‘twobrownfeet‘? We took a really long time to think this one out. Anyone who’s followed our trips or travelled with us, will realise, that ‘walking’ is one of our top choices. Basil hates the straight route and we often get lost, going off the marked tourist trail. Till date, we’ve never followed the same path twice. In a way, the name is our interpretation of a good trip must be — a pair of really tired & muddy feet.
As much as we’d hope — we’re not nomadic travellers. When we’re not travelling, we lead a pretty normal life. Basil works in business development and I’m a freelance writer — hoping to write — more than I procrastinate. Hopefully, someday, we’d like to settle in a secluded mountain town, in the Himalayan foothills, with a population of a few hundred people. That’s when, we’d like to look back at our blog as a collection of incredible travel experiences.
*** Starting from July 2016, we’d have relocated to Seoul, South Korea. It’s not the mountain town we were hoping for. Fortunately, Seoul does have its fair share of rocky peaks, green spots, and towering mountains. We’re hoping this stint of S(e)oul searching will add to our travel journey and experiences.
