I am Deep, just another earthling. And I loooove to travel. Just the idea of travel planning gives me such a rush! When I’m not travelling and am busy with the material things, I still dream of places far away. I am also passionate about photography and that goes hand in hand with my liking of travelling.
If you ask me, about my professional life, well am basically a science person. By formal education, I am an engineer (aren’t we all are from India!?). Currently I am working towards PhD in Glasgow, Scotland and I work on atmospheric reentry vehicle design. While I pull my (scarce) hair during most weekdays trying to make my computations and models work, the quest to conquer new territories continues on weekends. While I am here in Scotland I hope to explore the Scottish Highlands, the isles and the rest of the UK (on a tiny budget). Since, I am into Science and Technology, I am always on the lookout for “off the beaten path” experiences and express those in my photographs.
This is my travel blog where I scribble sporadically. Bhingri in my mother tongue, Marathi, means a pinwheel. It also is used in certain phrases to suggest moving constantly. I thought that was an apt simile for who I am as a traveller. There was deafening silence after the first couple of posts on this blog here, but I have now determined to write more often. As a new year begins (#HappyNewYear2018), in the next few months as I explore Scotland, I’ll add my travel experiences here with occasional throwback posts to previous travels in India and elsewhere. I write about places, people, nature, history and science.
I write once a month, and this has become far less frequent these days as am busy with finishing my PhD.
