About me

Thanks for being here!

I am Niraj Yadav. The next door IT guy. Just like a thousand others I love travelling 😀  Why? I am still looking for the reasons. But one thing is sure that travelling makes me feel free!

So, the journey started just 3 years back. Considering my age, I feel I am late. Joking 😀 I think people are in some kind of a race to travel. They create all kind of bucket lists and planners and bury themselves under the pressure of gap between the bucket lists and actuals. Travel without list and then add it to the accomplishment yaar!

The majority of my journey are solo travels. But I do love travelling with my friends. That is an altogether different fun.

Bikes and Camera are two of my soulmates when it comes to wandering. I own a Nikon D5100 with 18-55mm kit lens and Sigma 70-300mm telephoto lens. And I have a Bajaj Pulsar 150cc motorcycle. But I don’t take it everywhere I go. Now, you can find hundreds of motorcycle rentals throughout in India. But taking your bike with you is always a good option.

It feels good to be on the roads for more than 18,000 km. You get to learn so much. I came to know what’s “kutte ki maut” and “zindagi har kadam ek nayi jung hai” on the highway 😀Niraj Yadav True Wanderer 4.0

With luck and of course hard work 🙂 I could make it to the True Wanderer 4.0 finalist. It was a wonderful experience participating in the event. As the badge says they are in search of True Wanderers and you could be the one. They give fancy stuffs and paid ride to every finalist and a costly motorcycle to the winner. Check out my travelogue In Search of Little Big Things 

Just as what Ibn Batuta says “Traveling leaves you speechless and turns you into a storyteller” I can’t agree more. I belong to the category of frugal travelers and storytellers. I feel traveling low on a budget let me explore more and drags me closer to the places and peoples.

Regarding the Budgetyatri.com, it is my attempt to write and share my experiences, stories, and contacts of trustworthy locals from different corners of India.

    I liked the way you approached travelling. It’s a trend nowadays. Everybody is out with whatever they have, cars motorcycles, cycles and its good. Travelling teaches us so many things. But willing to learn everywhere you go is what I feel is interesting.
    You spoke my mind!!
    All the best dear, keep riding!
    Hope we will meet some day 🙂
