Divya Garg, a 20-year old is a traveler with not just A STORY, but a lot of stories to tell and a lot of experiences to discuss. Being a woman traveler, Divya has come across problems but have found solutions too and has proved that traveling is actually for everyone and not gender-specific.
In my tour around Instagram searching for travelers like me, I came across a woman.
Yes, a woman traveler and hang on, because her story is gonna amaze you.
Divya Garg is a 20-year old student from New Delhi and a traveler you would definitely wanna meet.
In an interview with bunktravel.com, she shared her best experiences and ideas with us and we’d wanna share it with you guys.
When did you start traveling?
Well, there was no specific age of it, I’ve been traveling since a very early age considering my parents are very fond of it. Traveling is kind of in my genes, you can say.
Why did you start Traveling?
The people around me were the motivation for me to travel. I have always had these little dreams about exploring the world the way it is and seeing everything through the naked eye. The people around me motivated me to try that dream out and believe me, I’m loving it.
Can you list the Places you’ve visited so far?
Well, its quite a long list but I’ll try as hard as I can to remember it.
It starts with Singapore, then Dubai and Nepal in International.
In the Indian subcontinent, I’ve been to Rajasthan, Karnataka, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir, Gujarat and Maharashtra .
Out of all these, any places you’d definitely wanna visit again?
Of course. I love Udaipur above all and then Pushkar in Rajasthan followed by Mumbai in Maharashtra and Dharamshala in Himachal Pradesh.
Crossing the Indian territories, I love Switzerland. It’s kinda like a movie set from Yash Chopra’s movies if you know what I mean.
So when are you planning to leave for your next trip?
Well, I’m scheduled to leave for Bhutan on June 15th and possibly Pondicherry in December. Both of these places are a great show of their cultures and architectural beauty.
Being a student, how do you get all this money to travel?
Well, my income sources include some from parents, while most of my funding is from my own savings and several investments.
What kind of a traveler are you? Shopaholic or a Photographer?
I’m a Photographer when I travel, very rarely do I shop because I believe no souvenir is better than collecting photos. Photos express a place way better than any material thing.
Do you think Indian Tourism Department has done a good job so far?
They have done a pretty good job but for a country as diverse and beautiful as India, but I believe there is a scope for improvement. India has a very wide scope when it comes to Tourism and I hope it gets better.
Alright, thank you very much, Divya for such a great talk. Hope you had a nice time. I sure had a nice tea.
