Hi, I am Raj, the publisher and editor of this website. So like to know about me? I lived in Boston with my family for many years. We later moved to Europe, but finally came back to India. It's a long story why I made a full circle in life travelling all around the globe only to come back to the place where I began my journey.
In short, I initially followed my father's footsteps. He was a successful engineer, worked in senior management roles and made it large in his life. Actually such giant example and expectation left me with no choice. I too did my engineering, became an IT professional, and took up challenges of the corporate world. Gradually life was all about extensive travel. But one thing which worked for me was my love for travelling, I was never tired of that. Sometimes the thought of travel writing passed my mind. But those days such thoughts were often buried by the rush and mammoth load of corporate life. After all, like my father, I too was striving to reach the top end of the corporate ladder.
After marriage as we settled down in Boston, we got the real opportunity to explore Bermuda. Once we went there for an extended vacation. And that visit seeded the root of our long term love with the island. With time, Bermuda became our favorite vacation destination. It was perhaps the luring memories that kept drawing us back to this island repeatedly. Our son was born and he too became part of our Bermuda story.
Time passed. I was beginning to feel the 'Travel Writer' within me surging out more often than before and pushing me to take a re-look at life. I wrote travelogues in my free time. By the next few years, I had seen much of the corporate world already and the sense of detachment only continued to grow. And eventually the time came when I was on the crossroads to choose between the two worlds - an established corporate life or a rising passion? It was a scary time. It could easily mean turning the apple cart upside down. But I am glad that despite many odds I chose to pursue my passion and finally snapped the ties with corporate world several years back to become a full-time travel writer. And my family stood by me firmly all through this journey.
So now you know how I became a travel writer and why the topic 'Bermuda' to start my new life. Despite a sea change in our lives, our family vacationing ways haven't changed ever since. Every time we visit Boston, a place which is like our second home, we continue to make onward trips to Bermuda. Such has been the influence of the island and its people on our family.
While I've been doing travel writing for the past several years, my main intent in this website is to keep posting our Bermuda experiences, findings and stories so that the site by itself becomes a living memory. This website is much more than just a travel matter to us.
When we are not in Bermuda, many operators and outfitters from the island keep writing to us, sometimes even offering us free tours when we go back next time. We have made countless friends in Bermuda some of who are artists, divers, hotel staff, store owners, guides and even taxi drivers. I also keep getting notes from readers of my website telling me about their own experiences in Bermuda. And some write to me seeking tips to help plan their vacation.
To us, this website has indeed become a living memory.
I have written close to 1,200 pages in this website which you can try to reach through the maze of links in the site. That will require some energy and patience though. This website has grown over the years. I have kept adding matters and rearranged them to make it easy-to-read as much as possible. And I continue to update the pages regularly and write new pages.
You can perhaps imagine the kind of effort and time that I had been putting in to build this information warehouse. But what keeps me going? It's the love and support from viewers like you who keep writing to me. Here are a few of such many messages that give me the conviction that I must be on the right track: Readers' Messages
I am also in Twitter and often tweet about the latest updates on my website or anything interesting that I come across. If you like to follow and interact with me, visit this twitter link below (you will need to open a Twitter account if you don't have one, it's free).
