Welcome to the Nanda Journeys Blog. Here we will share traveler stories and highlights from our unique journeys. By way of an introduction, I thought the best place to start would be to share a little about Nanda Journeys, how we came to be and why we are so passionate about what we do.
My team and I have over 60 years collective experience creating and delivering highly immersive experiential travel programs. Our goal is to connect people who are passionate about the sames things and who together can be change makers, improving the lives of communities around the world through education, community project support and friendship. We are dedicated to people, global communities, responsible travel and authentic experiences.
I decided to call my business Nanda Journeys for two reasons.
- India is my personal heart destination and I feel a little piece of me lives there, each time I visit I fall in love a little more. Nanda is the Sanskrit word for Joy. I want each of their travelers to have a joyous and happy experience when they are traveling and thus this seemed very apt.
- Journeys spoke to me as it evokes a sense of curiosity, an evolving experience that never ends. I want our guests to have that same feeling. Their journey should never end as we should have facilitated creating friendships and connections that will go on forever, regardless of their ever taking another Nanda Journey.
The idea came to me after a particularly inspiring yoga class and as soon as I had settled on the name Nanda Journeys, the tag line Travel for People with Purpose and Passion popped in to my head and I didn’t give it a second thought! One of the joys of owning one’s own business is the ability to be decisive!
So there you have it how Nanda Journeys came to be. We hope you will journey with us vicariously through our blog posts or by joining one of our journeys.
