  • Looking back at my first solo travel notes

Today i just happened to go through my Notes on Facebook which auto-imported from my old blog.

Came across this one, which was the first post from my first ever solo overseas travel (Brazil, 2008).

Almost every sentence put a smile on my face! I guess this is how travel blogging pays for itself 🙂

Exotic Gringo (Kaushal Karkhanis)

Leading an experimental life as a digital nomad, Kaushal started traveling in 2007 while choosing to shuttle between Goa and Mumbai as ‘home’.

  • 🙂 Makes me all the more excited about my trip. Tell me about the yellow fever vaccination story?

    Awesome! Keep Rocking Man

  • Haha.. wondering what happens when you don’t know local language in different country.

  • Nickolai – I really need to start writing more. Long story short though… i got my vaccine in Rio, instead of getting it before the trip in Mumbai. faster, completely free and i’d definitely trust the efficacy.

    Tosh – as long as you can get by with English or basics of the local language, it’s not too bad. eg: i don’t know any Thai but basic phrases definitely help you connect with locals deeper.
