Love to travel and find interesting facts about the places I visit, be it the historic facts or the latest innovation in the city, it excites me the most. Being a student of literature adds more to my hobby of traveling & getting in-depth to know the place in & out. Might find me in a historic fort reading & listening to the tales of dynasty or partying in the sassiest hotel of the city!
