My name is Maya. I’m traveling with my family around the world. My parents and 3 small, cute sisters. We visited India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh. But soon we hope to see more places.
Before we came to Asia, in 2015, we lived in Poland. I do not prefer to live there. First of all, it’s cold and after all my observations I think that people from Asia are much more communicative and open-minded. Children are much freer. The streets are full of life.
2015 – February/April
One ordinary day my parents decided to make a decision of their life and travel to India. No one expected that it was real. After a few months of preparations, we took a flight to Mumbai. – Here You can find a post about our Long preparations. – This was my first experience like that in a different world. I was 13 then.
We had spent there few days. – Here is post about Mumbai – Then we took a bus to Goa, where we found a great accommodation not far from the sea. Everyday we walked to the beach to play and swim. – Here is more about the place called Colva. – We lived there for 2 months.
The next our stop was city called Auroville. – Here is about our journey to the east. – First we visited place called Sadhana Forest. – More about Sadhana Forest is here. – Very luckily we met there 1 Russian men and a Polish women. They explained us everything.
We lived there for 4 days. It was wonderful. We woke up early in the morning and worked. After eating our vegan meal we had free time. The only bad thing about this place was mosquitos. We had to leave because we all have been almost eaten by them.
After renting a house in Auroville we slowly started to explore the city. It’s not very big. The funny thing was that the first place we found was one of the most expensive houses in Auroville belonging to a Russian woman. The average monthly cost in Auroville is 25,000RS (390$).
We left that house after 2 months and found a nice place, closer to the center, with a cost of 20,000RS (312$). At that time there were holidays. So in 2 months, I went to school. Best school I have ever been to.
In July our visa was suppose to finish so we took a flight to Sri Lanka. We had spend there 1 month and came back to Tamil Nadu. The same happened in January/February.
But in July we decided to explore something new and we went to Nepal. We had lived for 5 months in Pokhara. I went to school for 2 months and my sisters went to kindergarten.
When we got our Indian visa we were very disappointed because we got only 3 months, not 6 as usual. So we didn’t travel back to Auroville instead we went to West Bengal, where the idea of the website came from. We lived in Santiniketan, a place of education.
After 3 months we came back to Nepal, and again we got 5 months. We lived on a pic of a mountain called Metlang. In July 2017 we went back to India. We wanted to see something new so we chose Kerala. There we had problems with Sim Cards so we decided to go to a place we wanted to go so much, to the beach in Goa.
From August to Christmas we lived in Goa, going on the beach and eating fresh fishes. Then we traveled back to Auroville just to refresh our memories and pick up some things we left there.
We had a New Year there and again at the end of January we traveled back to Nepal. This time we stayed in Kathmandu for 5 months. Those were very cold times when we wore sweaters all day. As being used to hot temperatures, even 10C was quite cold.
2018 – July/October
When the visa finished we again took a new destination and went to Orisa, Puri. This was some new experience when we had a nice and quiet time there.
But again when the 3-month visa finished we had to travel abroad, and because Nepal only allowed 5 months max visa in a year we had to chose another but a close destination. So we went to Bangladesh. After a month there, we were obligated to finish our Asian journey and travel back to Poland.
2018 – Now
We settled in Krakow my city of birth, where I finished school and made the last exams. My sisters went to secondary school. Mom got a job.
And now we only wait till the school year finishes and borders were free to go back and travel abroad.
We want to show people how good it is to travel and how many possibilities we have. We want to share our travel lifestyle experience, stories, and tips. I’m not only sharing information about Hotels, Transport, and Attractions, I want to share also about Culture, Education, The way people live. I want to show the image behind the news which are the mask of reality.
Websites from different nationalities show only the negative sides of India and other countries. I want to change it. Besides I love exploring.
Here are sites with all our art and what we make
