Welcome to Travel Twosome. We are Brinda and Poorna from Bengaluru, the “Silicon City” or “Garden City” of India.
We travel together. We caught the travel bug 27 years back. On our honeymoon, we travelled over the sea, on the train, by bus and in an aircraft! Our adventures probably started that year. It has continued, ever since. Travel is a common passion that has always played an important role in our lives.
Our travel has taken us across the length and breadth of India. Though we have travelled abroad, we love to travel within India. We still feel that we have seen only very little of this great country. Yes, we have had amazing experiences during our journey so far. Countless memories. Be it seeing the tallest Shiv ling in the world or the highest motorable road in the world!
Trekking in the rain on a railway track amidst forests in monsoon to a lovely waterfall in South India…..
Getting lost in the ruins of Hampi or in the forests of Nameri. Diving under the sea in Netrani or going for a monsoon drive to Goa.
It has been an amazing journey so far.
Travel for us has been and continues to be…
Exploring the world in all its beauty, and eccentricities…
Learning about a new place, new culture, new cuisine, new art…
Discovering ourselves as we travel
Getting anchored to the present moment and enjoying it…
Making new friends…
Exotic spark of adventure and discovery…
Being curious about the world we live in…
Let us introduce ourselves.

Travel is very personal. It can mean different things to different people. For some, it may be a week’s vacation on a luxury cruise. To others, it may be just backpacking.
Our hope is that this blog helps you find your travel inspiration regardless of your travel style.
We’re thrilled you found us and hope you find our travel stories and insights useful. If you have a question, please contact us through this website (you can email us here) or you can find us on Facebook, Twitter
Finally, one of the questions we get asked is “Don’t you get bored of travel?”
Our answer is “Never.”
We believe in the famous quote by Robert Louis Stevenson:
“For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move.”
