The Backpack Girls

Disha Diwan

Disha has an agenda, she's running. Running far away from all things normal. She always finds a way off the beaten track, both literally and metaphorically! #WhyDoBoring she says. And she calls a spade a spade! Her energy is infectious so is her love for backpacking. Little wonder she floors everyone with her knowledge on world travel!

"Even after being to 14 odd countries, I still get childishly excited about a new trip. I hope to pass on this excitement to you for your upcoming trip."

 

Mallika Iyer

Operations Executive & Cake Queen

Mallika suffers from travelomania and would jump over to every chance that allows her to travel,be it even the Bermuda Triangle! She pursues baking as a passion by creating the yummiest cakes for her colleagues. Planning your trip is a mini trip (hop skip jump to travel destinations) for her, as she travels through the roads of your destination virtually!

"Whether or not a particular destination has been on your bucket list, I'd say you need to go for it! Just the experience of backpacking is exhilarating, and the backdrop of your destination will make it completely worth it!"

 

Saumya Tiwari

Sales Executive & Enthusiastic Dancer

Her friends see her as a tea dependent life form and a real life (hippy) Lara Croft. With a heart of a vagabond, soul of a dancer, Saumya seeks to live a life less ordinary, one filled with spontaneity, adventure and freedom to travel solo to every city in the world.

"Having traveled around the globe has broadened my perspective on a lot of things and I assure you that your trip will be an exciting, entertaining and enduring one."

She is a beautiful butterfly who is trying to spread her wings all around the world. Her inspiration is travel and she will bring that passion to all your trips!Just the thought of travelling around the world, backpacking from one country to the next gives her goosebumps.

"Trust me, you're going to come back with a backpack full of memories, and I'm going to do all I can to make sure they are great ones!"
