Coins and Maps
We take pride when people compliment us on our blog’s name. It took us months of thinking and brainstorming sessions to finally pick this one.
We are India’s first family travel and hospitality blog. We like to travel as a family and love to blog about our journey and the experience of it all – travel, stay and food.
Family Member 1 – Pillar of the blog
Nidhi Joshi – Wife, mother, yoga practitioner and ‘mukti’ seeker
With an experience of more than a decade, I am an ex-journalist and now enjoy blogging. A Master’s degree in English Literature and a Fashion Communication course from NIFT New Delhi, I began my career with Delhi Times as a Copy Editor cum Reporter. With a desire to explore the world, I moved on to work with publications like Trav Talk and TLF Magazine. Thereafter, I was working as a Consulting Editor with Askme.com for their travel portal askmeontravel.com and was also freelancing for a couple international magazines.
I then moved to Hyderabad and loved my two-year stay there. We explored a lot of new places and food in that region and loved every bit of it. Here, I also learnt swimming and ran two 5K marathons. I moved back to Gurgaon post that and worked with Pinnacle Connect as the Editor for Global Spa, Millionairesasia (India) and Peaklife magazines until Covid struck in 2020.
Family Member 2 – Moral Support, Logistics and Operations
Rohit Joshi – Husband; dad and a yogi in making
Rohit has been doing all things Banking for more than 16 years for a living but it is travel and meditation that he likes to balance his inner self with. Adventure tourism and spiritual journeys spur him on.
When he is not traveling then you can find him in the kitchen cooking up lip smacking dishes for the trio.
