My name is Shashank Ranjan and the word ‘travel’ is not only a word it is like everything for me. I travel just not to covering the distance from one destination to another but also experience and learn the mystery of the life closely. My strong belief and faith in travel have been taking me to the core area of this broad subject since my childhood and therefore my academic and professional background is completely related to travel and tourism.
