Arnab's Year in Cities - 2013

In the year of our Arnab 2013, I visited 7 countries and stayed overnight in 30 different cities from Andong to Yangon. I was largely based in Asia this year, with the only exception being a trip to Greece in summer. Spectacularly diverse adventures were to be had across the contintent in Myanmar, Mongolia, and Indonesia. For a while I worked out of my company's Indian office in Gurgaon, which allowed me to visit my family and friends during off days. A company trip to Bangkok and a friend's wedding at a beachside resort in Krabi resulted in multiple visits to Thailand.

  • Past years


    All men dream; but not equally.
    Those who dream by night in the dusty
    recesses of their minds
    Awake to find that it was vanity; 
    But the dreamers of day are dangerous men. 
    That they may act their dreams with open 
    eyes to make it possible.
    ~ Lawrence of Arabia
