Know the traveller

Hi folks!!
My name is Rakesh Kumar, a journalist by profession and a traveller by heart and soul.

I love to travel to new destinations, and explore vistas all over the world. In the last few years I have extensively travelled locally and around the world. Traveling around these places has helped me gain a deep understanding about the culture, food and heritage of various places.
My stories on travel, art, culture, food have routinely been published in various publications in India and abroad including CNN, South China Morning Post, The National, The Statesman.
