A passionate traveler, Bina has lived and worked in India, UAE, UK, and USA. Having visited 40+ countries and with a Master’s degree in English, she brings considerable expertise and a global perspective to her writing. Bina is genuinely bitten by the travel bug and always pays minute attention to where she is, what she sees, and its impact. The meeting of minds and uncovering of universal truths and fundamental differences in our world gives her life its greatest texture and interest.
This quote by the late Steve Jobs particularly resonates with Bina, since she ultimately came to travel writing in the wake of a long and successful career in the direct and network marketing industry: “Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking for your passion.” Bina currently contributes to several online travel publications: a seamless marriage of her experiences, skills, and interests.
