Vansh Tiwai, 26, is from Delhi.
Before entering college, I visited a few places outside Delhi with my grandparents and relatives. I have been living with my grandparents since childhood. So whenever relatives plan to go out, we used to join them. The only way to think of going out was when the relatives were going. That means traveling alone was not in the dictionary till then.
Solo Traveling & exploring with friends had come to me in my late college days. My first journey was to Bir Billing with one of my friends, and I enjoyed it. So, we booked a group tour for that place with a proper itinerary and arrangements. It was my first time going to Bir Billing. So, I felt I remained dependent on the group tour.
That was also the first time I indulged in trekking. I hadn’t done any trekking until before that trip.
I used to charge up with experiences and stories that I needed to share with others.
After college, I thought of creating a blog for some time. So basically, the digital marketing batch and all the learnings conducted there, I used to practice it side by side on the blog.
I had chosen “Crossroaddaventure” for my blog in that traveling spirit.
What is the meaning of Crossroadadventure?
I came up with this name after thinking quite a lot because there are two roads in life, one that every other person used to tell you to walk. The other road that the person himself makes to walk.
This blog is the story of the other road that I made.
I named Crossroadadventure because I had built this road entirely from scratch.
Apart from working on the blog, I have been doing a job side by side. It helps me to manage and ultimately grow the blog.
I wanted to be a travel content creator from the start because I feel I have a viewpoint that tells an engaging story through photography and writing. However, I knew nothing about photography and writing when I had just begun.
I used to take my relative’s DSLR camera at the start and take note of the controls. Then, if there was anything I wanted to know during the visit, I used to call my relative and ask him, “Hey, how do you make the background blur when shooting close objects?” and like that!
I was not concentrating on my writing at that time as I focused on photography. But, gradually, I realized I needed to focus on the writing part too. Because the need of the hour is to keep improving, and one side of the boat cannot be left alone to sink.
It’s been years since I worked on my blog and did a job. Since then, I have traveled to most places solo to create content.
The journey won’t be possible without your support.
I hope you will enjoy reading the blog.
