Hello! My name is Madhura, an Engineer from Bengaluru, India currently working in the US. Besides being a ‘Girl who codes’, which I love, I have a huge appetite for good reads and love travelling at leisure.
I do not believe in quitting one’s job to travel the world. Watching the software I write come alive and supporting numerous organizations in doing what they do, is rewarding. Also, to be financially independent is empowering.
Taking a break from work to explore a new place, discover new cultures, learn from experiences, appreciate the opportunities you have in life, and come back energised is what I prefer. Therefore, I titled my blog ‘Life Outside the Cubicle’. I never want my travel to be just about checking off a bucket list.
When I travelled to Ladakh in 2014, many friends and acquaintances wanted to know every detail of the trip which motivated me to start a blog, and from then on I began documenting my travel escapades, not just to share my experience but also to record many beautiful memories made in stunning locations. As much as I hope it helps other travellers, it lets me walk down the memory lane.
I have travelled solo, with family, with my girl gang, with total strangers, and now mostly with my partner. Irrespective of what kind of trip it is, I document every place I visit in my Blogosphere. The regularity of my posts is directly proportional to the frequency of my travel. I hope there is a lot of travel and exploration in all our lives.
