HEY ! Welcome to TWO FLASHPACKERS . We are Neha and Biswadeep: best friends, partners, doctors and travellers. We met way back in 2006 during medical school in Guangzhou (China) and have been together since 2009. Its been a decade of highs and lows, but filled with passion and adventure.
Our first trip together was to the commercial port city of ShenZen, a few months after we started dating. For a while we got busy with our post graduate medical studies, family and life and did not have the time or the money to travel. After getting married in 2015 we went to Bali for our honeymoon and then realised how much we loved travelling. Since then, we decided to always try and find the time to fit travel in our life plans. 4 years in China, 3 in New Delhi and now in Kolkata. It has now been 20 trips to 30 destinations in 8 countries. And the journey continues!
THEN VERSUS NOW !
OUR HONEYMOON TRIP TO BALI WHICH REIGNITED OUR WANDERLUST
This blog was born out of our love for travelling and the need to show people that it was possible to travel without quitting jobs. Our few days of vacation are extremely important to us, so we put a lot of effort into planning and researching our trip to have that perfect holiday. And all of our trips have been truly AMAZING!
Our blog focuses on short term trips for the mid range traveller. We are FLASHPACKERS who scrimp on flights and accomodation to splurge on experiences and activities. Having a sunrise photoshoot at Angkor wat, cruising in Halong and Bai tu long bay and beginning the New year by watching the sunrise at Maya bay are some of our travel highlights.Our articles are essentially travel guides and itineraries to help you plan that perfect trip and make the most of your precious vacation days. Trust me when i say that we probably research the most before a trip. I am a nerd who loves research and planning and our itineraries are perfect for part time travellers like us. We try to balance our trips with a mix of popular and off beat spots and make sure to try our best to avoid crowds. All our recommendations and reviews are unbiased honest ones without any form of sponsorship.
Not everyone can afford to quit their job and become a full time traveler. We love our jobs and our home and we travel to explore new cultures, taste different cuisines and learn more about the planet that we live in. Travel provides the rejuvenation for our soul.
