Fitness and travel may not seem like a plausible combination for many, but for Instagram blogger Radhika Bose, or Yogasini, it’s a match made in heaven. Read on to know what this TEDx speaker has to say about her wanderlust-bitten side.By Priyanka Chakrabarti
What does travelling mean to you?
For me, travelling is everything. If I don’t travel for a long period of time, I start losing the plot.
2. How did you start your blog?
By fluke! I used to edit videos for a living and take travel pictures as a hobby. Now, it’s the other way round.
If I am in the mood and groove, I can do it for hours. But, if I am not in the space, then I procrastinate quite a lot.
5. When did you get interested in travel and fitness blogging?
Fitness came first and then travel followed suit. I made money off fitness and then decided to travel. I have been travelling since I was a toddler. I would use my father’s camera — you know, the ones with a film reel — to take pictures. I have rugged it out from a young age. Road trips, Dhaba food, finding bushes… I have done it all.
6. You have a huge community on Instagram. How do you keep them engaged?
I communicate with my followers as much as I can. I post relevant ‘you and me’ stories, instead of showing them an unreal life.
7. What does it take to be a travel blogger today?
Like I said before, everyone is a travel blogger these days. But, I don’t think people have learnt to respect the place they are travelling to. For me, green travelling is always about carrying a bin bag everywhere I go. It’s not much, but it is something.
14. Do you think solo travelling is more enriching than travelling with a group of people?
They both have their pros and cons. Every travel is unique and they all come with a set of experiences.
15. Which are your favourite cities around the world?
