My Travel Resolution.
discover hidden myths, taste diverse food and sleep below a sky full of shooting stars and galaxies every night
Welcome to the travel blog of Kalyan Panja. He is first a photographer and then an avid traveler, who is always on the lookout for unusual and off the track destinations and aspires to have more stamps in his passport than years on this Earth. He started his journey on one fine summer day in 2006 as a freelance writer, sharing stories and experiences through photographs, and words through his blog.

Kalyan is a traveler who loves routes outside the traditional circuits and believes (with good reason) to discover real gems just away from the crowds of tourists in the queue. He always looks for WOW moments around the world among the local people, cuisine or across the streets to share with travel freaks everywhere. He loves traveling and telling stories through the images, showing the different cultures of the places that he visits.

Kalyan has learnt to control a horse all alone in his first horse ride through the hilly terrains of Himachal, explored the mysteries and cultural taboos of Northeast India, hiked the Tigers Nest in Bhutan, sailed in a ship across Bay of Bengal to Andaman & Nicobar Islands with no sight of land for three days, sipped his way through the ice covered Dal Lake in Srinagar, saw the elusive shining eyes of the hidden tiger in Kaziranga, shared the night under a sky full of stars and galaxies in Rajasthan, followed the footsteps of Shah Jahan though Agra, communed with nature as the sun rose over the Kanchenjunga from Tiger Hill, found his center on the summit of the rocky hilltop of Darjeeling, and soaked up an exquisite sunset over the Indian Ocean.

Carefree but observant, each trip leaves him more questions than answers. Still, the desert taught him that haste kills. The jungle, that the whole and the nothing are the same things. The mountain, that the impossible is achieved by putting one foot in front of the other and the sea taught him that he still needs a lot to learn. All along this, he walks, while he photographs and writes in this blog.

Kalyan has also topped many pan-India blogging competitions. He has more than 30000 fans on his social media channels with good organic engagement on his posts in instagram along with facebook, twitter, pinterest, google, youtube and others. Kalyan's reviews have been published in notable magazines like Femina and popular books by leading authors.

Interviews & Features

His photographs and articles have also been featured by the Lonely Planet, National Geographic, Google Travel, The Huffington Post, Yahoo, Travel Pulse and World Bank among others.
