An Indian passport does not enjoy as many perks as some of our western counterparts when it comes to traveling the world. It becomes difficult to get a visa to visit several places which are easily accessible to those with an American or Australian passport. Add to that the Indian culture which prioritizes milestones like graduation, marriage, buying a car and a house, having kids and retiring happily over traveling the world, living a free life, chasing your dreams. As such, it is a challenge for Indians to travel as frequently as some of our western friends. However, there are some blessed souls who have broken these shackles and given us hope. They travel for a living and write about it inspiring us to believe that we can do it too.

Here are five such inspiring travelers who have shown us that we can do it too!

In 2015, she was voted India’s best travel blogger by Vogue India. How cool is that?
