Hello! Welcome to Couple of Journeys where you will find in-depth guides and tips to help you plan your next trip!

Who Am I?

I am Vrushali Ketkar – a lawyer turned travel blogger. I have traveled to 14 countries and visited countless towns across the world.

I started traveling at a very young age with my parents. We used to travel at least once or twice a year. What made the trips special is that all the trips were planned entirely on our own… in the pre-internet era! As a family, we used to research, book the tickets, and explore the place our way and entirely on our own. (Just for context…. in the 90s most Indian families would not travel much or only travel with a group tour or a travel agent)

The regular trips with my family in the early days gave me the confidence to even head out on international trips entirely on my own. My first international trip was to France when I was just 16 years old. I traveled without my parents and without a mobile phone in the pre-internet era!

Today, I travel with my husband and my little daughter to places within and outside India. Since we travel like regular working people, we have limited time to explore places. That’s where I use years of experience powered by my lawyer-level research skills to plan my trips and get the most out of them.

In fact, my husband noticed my love for travel research and encouraged me to start this travel blog. He was the one who came up with the name ‘Couple of Journeys’. In the early days of the blog, he helped me click pictures for the blog and even wrote a few articles.

Today, I am fully devoted to this blog and want to help readers like you get the most out of your trips through my in-depth articles.
