Until two years ago, I’d never heard of the Nilgiris myself. And the only reason I got fascinated with them was because of a Bollywood movie (which is basically the reason why I get fascinated with anything really). Nilgiris (which translates to Blue Mountains) are a gorgeous mountain district…

Mehek
Mumbai

Hi! I'm Mehek, a part-time traveler looking for every opportunity to escape and explore some place new. I've visited 33 countries in the last 28 years, with a goal to get to 45 countries by the time I'm 45! I travel the world in search of vegetarian food options, the best local cafes, and experiences off-the-beaten-path, collecting a magnet from every city I visit. So far I've taken a graffiti workshop in Prague, snorkeled between the American and European continents, and trekked with gorillas in the Rwandan forest. Follow me as I share travel stories, hidden gems and vegetarian food from around the world!
