In this new digital media age, travel and blogging almost go hand in hand. While most travel out of passion, they blog mainly for helping the others alike and in the course earn a little bit of extra income too that comes as a bi- product.
There are some great travel blogs available today, but our travel admirers Revati and Charles Victor have a cut above many for being different (literally). Through their blog- different doors.com, the couple, along with the mainstream experiences offers the readers an insight to the uncommon and often left out unique things that make a place truly memorable.
About Revati & Charles-
There’s nothing better than to find a soulmate with similar interests and passions. The same happened with the married couple from Mumbai- Revati and Charles Victor. This amazing duo works in advertising for sustenance and travel to make life worth living. Their trip to Paris had a deep impact and it was during this trip that they discovered the wanderlust in them. It won’t be wrong to say that they work not only for their living but for their travel breaks.
The best part about the travel experiences of Revati & Charles is the fact that they don’t travel a destination on its superficial level, instead they take a dive in to the depth of the place and connect with the locals. The culture, food, people and their regular lives inspire them and they dig out the uncommon experiences from their trip to present it to their fans all across the globe.
While Revati is from Pune, Charles hails from Bengaluru and they both live in Mumbai where they work as advertising professionals. The couple always meticulously plans their trip, and research well about the destination specially the food but they can simply go anywhere in Europe without any detailed planning as the couple are in love with it. They enjoy blogging as it connects them with other likeminded people and aims to help them get inspired and travel differently.
While the couple adores travelling, they also love their work and believe that’s what creates a balance in their lives. They enjoy both their passion and means of livelihood equally and do not advocate leaving job for travelling. They live to create fond memories of opening different doors of experiences.
Their Favorites- Paris being their all-time favorite destination, Revati & Charles credit the city for changing their way of looking at travel. Cooking is another area they love to dabble upon. While both call themselves as amateurs, their favorite hobby is to recreate the cuisines they’ve tasted and liked on their expeditions across the world. For souvenirs Revati & Charles shop for groceries from different parts of the globe and use it in their kitchen.
