About

Who is this Trablogger?

Trablogger aka Jithin
Trablogger aka Jithin, for your reference. πŸ˜‰

Trablogger is an Indian travel blogger, who got lucky to get a domain name Travel+Blogger= Trablogger! Oh, well that is me. People who know me in person call me Jithin.

During the early days, I didn’t realise the numbers of travel bloggers out there and how lucky it is to get such a name even without trying!

Like many other decisions in my life, one day out of an impulse, I started a blog and named it “Trablogger”. It was on a sunny day of September. The very first day of that month.

Yes, on 1st Sep. 2014 Trablogger took the first step.

How is the Trablogger Journey?

This first step happened to be one of the best decisions so far. The decision was taken when I was wandering without a direction in life. This decision gave me confidence, a direction, a sense of purpose and a lot of good friends. So now I can say, the journey is amazing.

How did the travel blogging journey start?

I quit my job, not to travel; just to quit my job! (unlike many others who quit their job to travel). I think it is quite natural transition that when one loses direction, one starts to wander. Same happened with me too. I was wandering without direction; sad, broke, dejected, frustrated and what not.

And one day, all of a sudden, out of nowhere, that idea came! And one more travel blog was created in this universe!

Journey was exciting?

I started this blog to share some of my travel memories along with a few pictures from my past trips. It was an impulsive decision. Name was decided without much thinking. After a few searches on ‘how to find a good blog name’, ‘which blogging platform to choose’ etc; www.trablogger.wordpress.com was created.

First post was written by lending words from Lao Tzu. More travel related posts were made. And I started getting encouraging comments. Then I got hooked. I started to travel with an intention to capture and share the stories from the road, here. And I have fallen deeply in love with Visual Story Telling.

Any Regrets?

Regrets??! NO!! In fact I am grateful for that decision. After a year of blogging, I found myself writing a book based on my travel stories, life around me, philosophies I believe and so on. Somehow I got it published. In face, I self published it. And it resulted into another side project called Jimpify Publishing.

On 1st of September 2015, I self published ‘Journey Is My Path’, some sort of philosophical musing through my life journey.

"Journey is m path" paperback

How is the present Journey?

Now I travel, I capture and I share it here in this blog.

Sounds clichΓ© right? Because it is! πŸ˜‰

And I want to do this full time. Travel. Photograph. Write. Share. And Repeat.

Oh. Are you born Rich?

Haha. How I wish! Travelling does not always require a lot of money. My desktop wallpaper says ‘Travel is never a matter of money, but a matter of courage’. So I travel with lesser money, at times even without money. I create memories from experiences and capture those memorable experiences to relive again.

You must be having a heavy camera. Yea?

Heavy? It is heavier than many compact cameras, but there are heavier cameras out there whichΒ  makes my camera quite light!

Canon EOS 1100 is my constant Travel Companion, who helps me to take you for a Photo walk. I bought it from my savings, once upon a time when I had a ‘proper job’

Trablogger’s first dslr selfie back in 2012

(I bought this camera in 2012 August and this is the camera I am still using. Lenses : 50mm 1.8, 55-250mm and a not very usable 18-55mm.)

So now you have an improper job?

I tried; not once or twice, more than that, to stay in a conventional job. But I couldn’t. So now I do non-conventional jobs so that I can eat, have a shelter, travel and do things like that. Since travel can’t be taken away from me, I am in the travel industry itself. I design tours. I run a couple of tours based out from Kochi, Kerala, India. I am planning to design a Photowalk in Fort Kochi.

Photowalk sounds cool!

Yes, that is what I try to do here in this blog too. To take the readers for a virtual photowalk through my pictures and words. So want to go for a photo walk to Ghost town of Dhanushkodi or through the curvalicious roads of Kerala?

Best part is that it won’t cost you anything. I do understand the role of MONEY in our travels. I am more of a economical or rather a “cheap” traveller. I travel on thinner than shoe string budgets.

This is how I spent as low as $2 or 100 rupees per day for a beach facing stay, read the story here : Secrets of Murudeshwar.

That is cheap! How do you travel cheap?

I Β tried hitch hiking, couch surfing, ate street food, slept in tents, took heavily crowded trains, travelled in general compartment for 24 hours or more. And through these experiences I have learned a few ways of having a better travel experience with lesser cost.

So here I will take you for a photo walkΒ through Β some of the cheapest travels with richest memories, some off beat locations, someΒ unique cultures, some random photographs of people, places or anything.

          πŸ™‚ I don’t know if you got to read the two posts I did for Sole Stories, but I’m hoping to finish writing about that trip. My photographer friend has to finish and send me the fotos. I’m trying to be patient lol

At one point I started taking pictures of my shoe from various places I visited. Your idea sound similar to mine too πŸ˜€

            I know nothing about this award thing. This morning only I found that I’ve been nominated. But I saw that you’ve said ” thanks, but no thanks” to lot of awards. And regarding this liberation stuff, it was more about fear of being judged by the people who know me. Since I m very new to blogging, I wasn’t sure if it will be liked by people or not. But now…I m encouraged to write more.

          2. trablogJanuary 22, 2015

            Awards are fun, but if you are accepting it you need to make a post, answer certain questions and so on. So its better for me to say no thanks.

    Hey Jithin,

    Please forgive my late arrival on your excellent Blog…and thank you for having visited my own site. Great to have you on-board πŸ™‚

    I’ve spent a while here on your site travelling the global highways and byways through the lens of your Cannon, and enjoyed the direct and observational comments that support your photography. I admire the way you execute your craft and go about your affairs. You have a very ‘natural approach’ to your subject matter and appear at ease developing an affinity for, and a relationship with the environment within which you become immersed, and also with the people with whom you meet. Walking the many paths with you through the numerous locations you have visited feels very comfortable….I am not rushed or left abandoned and feel like I have time to appreciate the many sights to be seen….the photographs you include are descriptive and impacting, and the humour and wit not lost on me either. I can fully appreciate how and why the travel bug bit you, and why it continues to do so! Thank you for sharing these experiences.

    Planet Earth grows smaller every day as new opportunities for travel emerge and new forms of communications reduce ever further distance between the hearts and minds of the earth’s inhabitants. Within that expansive mix are individuals, like yourself, destined to record and document our contemporary history, and hence our civilizations, who bring the diversity and abundance of life to a wider audience. And in so doing, draw the people of the world ever closer by sharing the experience, sharing the culture, and sharing your personal insights and comments. Long may you continue to pursue such a worthwhile goal πŸ™‚

    Someday I’d very much like to find the opportunity, space, and time to travel, and I think such an adventure is probably long overdue!

    You have a wonderful Blog, Jithin. Thank you for having enticed me here…it’s been most inspiring and very rewarding. I shall look forward in returning to journey further with you as you seek out new paths through this life…take care.

    Happy travelling πŸ™‚

    Namaste

      My goodness!! I have never ever received any feedback like this!! Thank you so very much for your amazing words. I wish I could write the way you write to tell you how much it means to me!
      And I am super glad that you enjoyed travelling through my posts and photographs. Being a self taught amateur, your words about my photography makes me immensely happy. Thank you πŸ™‚
      I am sure you will start your travel adventures sooner than you think πŸ™‚ Thanks again for your precious time spent on my travel memories.

        Hey Jithin,

        Thank you…but the pleasure is mine, and the least I can do in response to the enjoyment and timely inspiration your Blog has provided.

        Your hard work, dedication and commitment to your passion is wholly admirable. I think self-taught is often the best way to learn and the inspiring sense of personal achievement that comes with success more clearly defined as a result. Photography is mainly a solitary pursuit and a fully immersive interest, and as such requires strength of personal character, determination and resolve, hard work and a cast-iron tenacity to persist and overcome all challenges in the field. It’s evident in your work how much enjoyment you get out of doing what you do…and that in itself is a truly wonderful thing.

        Your comment…’I am sure you will start your travel adventures sooner than you think’…speaks with a quiet whisper of certainty that seems to grow louder each time I hear it echo back at me. So, quite possibly you are right!

        Thank you again for a great Blog and pleasant comment. I’ll be back soon.

        Namaste

            Thank you very much for being the messenger of inspiration. πŸ™‚

    Hi Jithin

    Absolutely awesome and down to earth story. Very inspiring and I can see why you have no award policy (which is too bad because I found your blog from today’s nomination from Maverickbird who also nominated us.)

    Anyway, I love how you learned to sacrifice in order to achieve your goals; I find a sad lack of that and strange sense of entitlement form today’s internet generation. Speaking as someone who has the same passion but spent 30 years in the cubicle and lived super thrifty in order to retire early without being wealthy, I wish I would have chosen your path at age 20 but we look forward to catching up with everyone that’s already experienced life the way it should be lived

    I will complete your bucket list project since we’ve only been to a few places and look forward to following your stories; I hope you check us out and give us a follow also; http://www.excperimentalexpats.com

I also visited Goa, Hampi, Pushkar and a few other places but it wasn’t nearly long enough. I hope to return one day and stay for over a year – there is SO much to see in wonderful India – so much going on! I’m excited to see more of your pics and posts!

    Hi! Thanks for all the likes and for commenting πŸ™‚ Wanted to stop by and say hey and answer your question you left here http://jennifernicholewells.com/home/grass-trees-car-3/. I have comments turned off for my portfolio pages so I am unable to respond on the picture itself. I use miniatures. On this particular picture it’s an n-scale train miniature. I bought and painted the car and surrounded it with green polyfiber, real dirt, a water color painted sky and a train miniature tree. I create most of my set ups in a similar fashion, a little bit of sculpture, painting, playing and camera magic πŸ˜›

    Anyway, thanks so much again and have an awesome day!

      Thank you very much. In fact I was thinking of Thank you, but no thanks. But after seeing your description I changed my mind. If I say No to this now, it would be a big ungrateful thing to do. So I am accepting the award. Thank you very much. But I am doing it in a different way. I ‘ll let you know soon.

    hey i hope you can help me with something. I notice you have the same theme as me. The thing is i don’t know how to add extra pages in the top bar like you have, next to About. i tried a lot. but every time no success. I am new at this. it took me a month to figure out how the widgets work haha. Any help is appreciated πŸ™‚

      When you are on your blog, On the top bar your can see your name with a globe righ? Just right side of the BIG W of WP
      From there select ‘NEW’>Page and rest you can figure out. Try and let me know

        okay i got that. I made a new page as well. it shows on the left bar of the blog. But how to show it on the upper bar menu? where the ‘About’ page is displayed.

          you can maily have two menus. one primary on top, and secondary on the left side bar. You have to add your menu to the primary one. May be you can ask more questions at the commons. So that if anyone else is also having similar doubt will be helped. I will answer anyway

          Asking for awards?!! :p
          Well I am too new here to receive or pass on the chain of awards to someone else. I am exactly 20 days old in WP as on today.

            Oh not at all I’m not a big fan of awards, I find them hard to handle and follow through…considering my hectic schedule when new semester starts ! πŸ™‚

            No way??? Just 20? I didn’t expect that. You seem like a pro ! πŸ˜€

          2. trablogSeptember 20, 2014

            You are the PCS with lots of awards.right?!
            I started on sep 1st. And thank you very much for that comment πŸ˜€

          3. lifeconfusionsSeptember 20, 2014

            Well yeah I had many, but with time you kinda get tired of them to be honest…Also the whole communication with bloggers here is much more intersting.
            I have been blogging for a year now, 12 Sept I think was my my first Blogoversarry ! πŸ˜€

          4. trablogSeptember 20, 2014
