Instagram has been a great social media platform for us, offering enormous opportunities to meet with fellow travel enthusiasts. We have met solo travellers, travel photographers, nature admirers, adventure junkies and wonderful travel couples. This awesome experience has generated within us the idea of interviewing all these beautiful people and to know about their fabulous journeys. Our Travel Couples series is one such medium to acquaint with the enthusiastic couples venturing into mesmerizing and stunning travel destinations hand in hand.
In this particular Travel Couples Series, we are extremely glad to feature Dharmendra and Priyanka. We have been interacting with them on Instagram for quite some time now, a very humble and adorable couple. Without any further delay, presenting before our readers the interview we conducted.
Where did you travel for the first time as a couple?
We Travelled as a couple to Seychelles for the first time, before that we did meet in Mumbai and Bangalore and explored these cities.
How many places have you travelled?
It's been just 1.5 years since we are together, in this span we managed to travel to Seychelles, Sri Lanka, Ooty, Tirupati, Mysore, Bhopal, Delhi, Chandigarh and Gwalior. Individually our count stands to 17 Countries and 100+ cities.
Share your travel experiences and some memorable moments which you cherish
Sri Lanka trip turned out to be one of the most amazing that we've experienced. It has everything to offer, religious, historical, wildlife, culture, mountains and beaches. Each day in Sri Lanka was bliss, we hiked, trekked, did a scenic train ride from Kandy to Ella and enjoyed at the beach in Bentota.
What are the essential things one needs to take care of during travelling especially for a couple?
Firstly the luggage, Pack as light as you can. For the sack of pictures we often pack more than we need. Apart from this some basic medicines, offline google maps and knowledge of tourist traps about the places you are visiting are musts.
How is travelling as a couple different from travelling with other members of the family or in groups?
All other family members lived the life with you since childhood, you know everything about each other and you even know how some family members will react when you do something different than usual. Our family trips are mostly religious however as a couple we can venture out anywhere we want. Travelling a couple opens up a new window for us, we get to know each other a bit more. As a couple you are seeing new places, creating new memories and you will cherish those memories together. Also, we believe in “Couples Who Travel Together Stay Together”.
What are your future plans for travelling?
As soon as the things will be normal, we will do a ‘Royal Rajasthan' tour. And then we will explore Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia.
Who or what inspired you to venture out on travels?
“Life is short and World is beautiful” this quote inspired us to travel more and more. We have a dream to set foot in each country at least once in our lifetime.
This brings us to the end of the interview we conducted with Dharmendra and Priyanka as part of our Travel Couples Series. Please visit their Instagram page safarnamabydp to read about their amazing travel journeys together.
