Smita Joseph works for a software company from Hyderabad, and recently went on an official trip to Jaipur. But she stayed back after to explore the city, and travelled to Pushkar as well. Smita loves to travel, both solo and with her close friends and family. “It makes me more aware of the different kinds of people that come from different backgrounds and have diverse upbringings, which results in a different mindset than mine,” she says, “as my job requires quite a bit of interaction with people, this helps me to put into perspective where they might be coming from, and be more efficient in fulfilling my responsibilities.

Also, the energy levels and wiring you feel in your brain while travelling is fed by a kind of adrenaline rush. Your body has to experience this from time to time, or else one gets used to the monotony of everyday life and neglects to experience life to its fullest.”Read More
