Hi, I’m Ajay, a British-Indian who’s been residing in the Middle East for the last 4 years.My heritage stems from Punjab in India, where I was born and bred in a vibrant and rich culture based on family values, loyalty and great food! In my later youth, I moved to Australia, and thereafter, lived in the USA, Canada, UK & eventually the Gulf, proud of having traveled almost half of the world. Travel, food and photography are my passions, and surprisingly most of my travels are linked to food, drinks and different cuisines or wonderful sights from around the globe.
When not travelling, trying new things or blogging, I practice Raiki. I am Certified Raiki Master, do contact me if you need to know more.
Blogging………so how did it start?
Well, my family and friends always struggled to get first hand information (or I guess they just didn’t bother doing enough research) when they were planning their vacations. Knowing that I’ve traveled to various destinations, they always asked me for suggestions, and the do’s and don’ts. I was getting overwhelmed with calls, texts and whatsapp messages from many individuals with requests to plan their itinerary. In some cases it didn’t stop there and I would receive calls whilst they were on vacation. I started to realize that my wealth of knowledge and experience about diverse cultures, places of interest, sophisticated cuisines, and other bits & bobs was indeed highly sought after. Immediately, it got me thinking and an idea struck…why don’t I create a website where I can share my passion for travel, food, art and culture, and photography with others? I was now thinking mass scale, way beyond my family and friends. I started with a Facebook Travel Photos page as I knew it would take a while to get my act together and publish the website. Finally, after plenty of planning and much encouragement from my supportive wife combined with hard efforts of many others I’m proud to say here we are with “Savvy Travelers – Travel and Photo Blog”
