I started traveling the world extensively in 2013 and amidst my escapades, I started accumulating loyalty rewards, points, and air miles, of which I didn’t understand the prominence of at the time.Over the next three years, I traveled massively across the world and at highly unbelievable prices. I ended up having crazy adventures and meeting so many people from all walks of life.

– Been on Safari amidst exotic wild animals
– Traveled over 60 countries in the last 4 years. 
– Stay in 5 stars hotels for 3-star price
– Stayed in Burj Al Arab for Rs 40,000 a night (usually its Rs 1.5 lakhs per night)
 I believe I am now qualified to give luxury travel tips. Avgeeks will find this website very exciting.
What is the passion?
 
I want to remove the huge pile misconceptions people have about travel. It is not that expensive. People think one fine day they would be able to travel the world. No, you can’t. Travelling is an art, and it requires practice.  Most people who travel ten more days than they are used to end up falling sick all the time. This is why I created Luxury Lifestyle so that people can get Luxury Travel tips and hacks.
 
Dreams and goals
 
I want to create synergy between my clients and hospitality chains. I want to help hotels to create memories for their clients and in exchange clients having the best value for their money. The client should, in the end, feel justified for the cost they spent. The hotel should feel they did something to win customer’s loyalty.
 
My goal is to create a network of luxury travel enthusiastic where travel knowledge is easily available and easily customizable to person’s desire. Luxury is all about being at any venue of their choosing at the cost they like.  I want to make my blog #1 luxury travel blog of India.
 
I am also planning to do interview series where hotels would talk about personalized experiences.As Steve Jobs said, “People don’t know what they really want until you give it to them.”
