ABOUT ME

Hey! My name is Sumita, and welcome to Purple Terrain. I am obsessed with travel, adventure, and hiking. I want to explore the world, meet people, and have plans to see almost all the countries in a lifetime. I believe travel and adventure is the most transformative experience one can undertake: make sure you make most of it in a lifetime.

I was not always a travel addict, but I was always curious and enthusiastic to experience the world. That’s what made me join the Indian Navy in 1993, and I saw India thoroughly while serving the Indian Navy. I travelled deeply in Kerala, Goa, Andhra, Maharashtra, and many more southern states. Later got busy with work and kids. Now, last few years, I have started traveling more, got more passionate to see the world. I have been to more than 25 countries and almost all the states of India but never thought about writing about my travel and adventures. I have done diving in the deep sea, drove extensively in the Himalayas, done high altitude expeditions, gone for solo treks, and sailed in a small boat in the Indian Ocean. 

There are some places in my travel that I always crave, Himalayas (more of Uttrakhand), Paris, New York, Mongolia, Russia, and Thailand..

Most of the time, I like being in nature, pine trees, meadows, jungle, and grass, trees and flowers away from the crowd but sometimes city crowd, the hustle-bustle, shops, and pubs and happy restaurants I long for. It’s a wheel, which is continuously rotating and calling me to different destinations. Big cosmopolitan cities Mumbai, New York, Paris, Prague, Moscow, Beijing, Cape town, saint Petersburg, LA, Florence, and many more … are charismatic and vibrant. They welcome people from all around the world. They are like a mega show, which has a captivating audience worldwide.

One day, I am a random traveller; I want to travel in comfort, dress up, and eat in great places; other days, I am in casuals, eat roadside, and sleep in dorms. Walking is my favorite mode of transport but not when wearing heels. Life is short, so I am in a hurry to do things. So much to do and so little time and such a big world. Life is too short to spend in one place.

Now the question that why I started this website:

1. Recording my travel: So far, I have not written about my life adventures. I wanted to record all my trips and see them come alive online. I will be  happy when this will happen. Today I don’t even know that anyone will read this blog of mine, but here I am!

2. I have stories to tell, and some are inspiring. I want to say to women that the world is not so unsafe as they think.

3. How to plan travel, book things and have more fun.

I am there; call me, what’s app me, message me regarding travelling.
