Who are we?

We, Vrushali & Akshay, are a couple from Mumbai, India. We have been together for over 10 years (2 years of dating + 8 years of marriage) and now have a darling little girl who also loves travelling as much as we do!

During this last decade, we have traveled to over 13 countries and visited a few dozen cities! What’s made all of these journeys count is that we have planned them all on our own!

Here are some quick facts about us –

Vrushali – corporate lawyer who loves traveling to lively cities, culturally significant places and enjoys interacting with locals!

Akshay – Works in corporate sales, loves beaches, clicks hundreds of photos and spends time observing nature!

We have also collaborated with many brands from the travel industry. What this means is that, our site is full of useful reviews of hotels, airlines as well as travel products.

(Rest assured that all our reviews are 100% honest. We will never compromise on the loyalty of our audience for a few extra bucks!)

Examples: Can you carry a razor in your hand luggage?, Can you carry alcohol on a domestic flight?

The name of our blog ‘Couple of Journeys’ is not meant to restrict our content only for those heading out on a couples trip. In fact, we chose this name to inspire you to head out on a couple of journeys planned entirely on your own so that you fully understand how enlightening and magical traveling is. So that means that our blog is for –

Solo travellers

Akshay has gone on dozens of solo trips before we got married! So don’t worry, our content will work perfectly for your solo adventures!

Couple travellers

You already know how extensively we have travelled around as a couple and therefore, whether you’re heading out on your honeymoon or a random couple’s outing, our blog is perfect for you!

Family travellers

After we became parents to a baby girl, we decided to pass on our travel ‘gene’ to her. So in her very first year itself, she took over 10 flights to destinations within and outside India! Now, we have plenty of useful tips, guides and reviews to help you plan a family trip!
