Hello!! Everyone!! Welcome to Fernwehrahee Blog and thank you to read about me.
“The most dangerous risk of All – The risk of spending your life not doing what you want on the bet you can buy yourself the freedom to Do it later.”
Who Am I?
I am Mayuri, Born and brought up in India in a typical middle-class family. But now destiny took me to another country and I moved to the United States in December 2022. Before moving to the states, I was working as a full-time engineer at Gujarat Electricity Board (Electricity Utility Company) in India. My family defines me as a travelholic as I always think and dream about travel and find chances to travel.
I was never a wayfarer; I didn’t take any trips until I was 23 years old, never hopped on a flight till I was 25 years old! After coming back from my first trip to Rajasthan, India in 2011, I fell in love with traveling. Then gradually my trips to different places in India converted to lust and passion and became a tourist to a traveler. In the past few years, my journey took me to numerous destinations around India and abroad.
I worked in a corporate job for almost 14 years. My husband was living in the USA and I was living in India due to our career and job prospects. We lived in a long-distance relationship for almost 5 years! So after thinking a lot, we decided to move to the United States. I left my corporate job in India in November 2022 and now living in the United States with my husband.
You can read how I met my husband during the coronavirus Pandemic and worldwide lockdown here. It was so much stressful period for me!
I started this Blog in 2017, to share my travel experiences with the help of my husband. I was maintaining it with my job. I love clicking photographs, capturing local essence, devouring different food, and sharing information with others. Anytime, any day I love discussing travels!
But eventually, a travel blog is about more than a full-time job! yes, you heard it right, It’s a lot of work!! It was hard for me to maintain my blog and a full-time demanding corporate job in addition to living apart from my husband.
So, now as I left my full-time job, I decided to become a content creator and travel blogger as my full-time career! Many people advised me not to leave my job but living in a long-distance relationship was not for me! Today, I am happy and not afraid of taking risks or having fear of the unknown. I feel grateful and more confident than ever. If life demands, maybe I will get back to my job but till then I am taking a career break and writing for my baby blog full-time.
What is the meaning of my blog??
‘Fernweh‘ is a German word that means “one feels sick when at home too long” and ‘Rahee’ is a Hindi name that means ‘”Traveler”
My travel style is affordable luxury type. I call myself a travel and lifestyle blogger. I love to explore famous tourist places (bucket list items) and some offbeat routes to little quiet towns (I hate Crowd). I love easy travel hikes and spending my time in the mountains. I also love to get tanned on sandy beaches, Star gazing, get lost in quiet streets, pluck farm fresh fruits, and click loads of photographs. I can walk for miles for the best Sunrise and sunset views. I have a long travel bucket list !!
