About Akriti Mattu
Founder at Budget Wayfarers.
Born amidst snow clad Himalayas in the dreamy town of Shimla, with roots from Kashmir and currently settled in Bangalore, I am a free spirit in every sense of the term. A maverick who doesn’t mind taking risks, I left a high paying but regular 9 to 6 job to follow my true calling – Travel Blogging. As somebody who has traveled across the expansive terrain of India as well as to unique destinations outside South Asia, I happily spending my days creating travel content for all those who wish to explore the world without creating holes in their pockets. Along with my travelogues are travel stories of thousands of other wanderlust lovers who’ve successfully backpacked their way to destinations around the globe. Anybody who is passionate about travel and would love to share his/her tale of escapade with a global audience is welcome to be a part of the Budget Wayfarers family. I’ve always believed that the world is a beautiful place but only for those who are able to break the stereotypes and discover the true splendour. My journey to experience the magic of the world began long time back. Now it’s time to span it out and share it with all of you. Afterall, blogging makes me live. Travel makes me alive.
