the couple – Bindhu and Unny

There can’t be two opinions on love for travel. Everyone agrees to agree and waits for an opportunity. And there are a few good things about blogging as well. For instance, no disappointments when an editor of a magazine rejects a piece. Or there is no restriction to write a story in 600 words. And certainly one can be enough of a narcissist with as many photographs of oneself.

So here we are, Bindhu and Unny. Bitten by the travel bug many years back, but have been traveling only since 2004, after coming to Mumbai.  With treks, road trips, back-pack trips and adventure camps we have utilised almost all our weekends. We have been doing ‘photo-blogging’ – blogs with only photographs from each of our trips. The links can be found elsewhere in this blog.


Armchair traveler. Reluctant reader. Would-be writer. amateur photographer, Day dreamer… and likewise, a pretender of too many things. Advertising and marketing industry ensures basic comforts in life. Goes by the name Unny. (Unny Radhakrishnan).

Also writes occasionally on some online & travel magazines.

Also an advisor to Rustik Travel.


Add a few more pretensions – a good cook, a good host, no-nonsense etc. etc. Easily mistaken for a serious, intellectual reader, but far from it. Tries to earn a living by writing and messing up with what others write (editing). Goes by the name Bindhu. (Bindhu Unny)

Also writes at ColouredCanvas, Worsatile, and Shankupushpam, a Malayalam blog.
