The Urge To Wander is a collection of written and visual stories from all the places I, Madhu, have travelled to and of the people I’ve connected with along the way.
I hope these stories and images will inspire each of you to travel more and the brand new resource pages, culled from over a decade of independent travel, will help you travel better.
Thank you for being here. Although travel is currently on pause, worldwide, I have hopes for more meaningful, sustainable travel in a post-pandemic world.

As a child, yearning to leave home and go far away, the image in my mind was of flight – my little self hurrying off alone. The word “travel” did not occur to me nor did the word “transformation” which was my unspoken but enduring wish. I wanted to find a new self in a distant place, and new things to care about. The importance of elsewhere was something I took on faith. Elsewhere was the place I wanted to be.Paul Theroux
