A Bit About Me

Hi, I’m Varma. I think travel is important, as it introduces you to different cultures and lifestyles that might otherwise have remained hidden to you. The United States is especially fascinating to me - there is so much entertainment on offer everywhere! It’s great to have experienced some of the sights and places that I have sent our customers off to many times.

Having worked in the travel industry for years, it’s safe to say that I’m an expert at finding a cheap holiday. I know all the best tips and tricks for making the most of your budget and time and I will gladly share them with you.

Every year, I try to fit in two long-haul holidays with my family - we have two boys, one is 11 and the other one’s 8. They love adventurous travels and I need to make sure there is enough to do for kids in the destinations that we visit. Last year, I took them to Orlando, which was obviously perfect.

On top of the big family holidays, I usually take a few short-haul breaks with friends - these tend to be to beach destinations like Sri Lanka, Thailand, Dubai and Goa. My business travels are mostly within India.

My Favourite Travel Pictures

“I like to travel long haul from India - to the United Arab Emirates, the United States, the Bahamas… Sometimes it takes over 24 hours for me to reach those destinations. It’s so worth it, though.”

The Hidden Gems I’ve Found

“I got to explore some excellent restaurants in Miami.”

As I was travelling with kids who prefer Indian food over ‘foreign’ food, I used Google Maps to find Indians restaurants in Miami and dined at a few. Amongst them, my favourite was Bombay Darbar in Coconut Grove. The portion sizes were generous and I found the service impeccable. Amongst the dishes we tasted, the samosa, chicken tikka masala and lamb pasanda were exceptional!

Amongst the American restaurants in Miami, I found Yardbird Southern Table & Bar located on Miami Beach impressive. The menu had a wide variety of dishes - amongst them we found chicken and ribs very delicious. This restaurant gets quite crowded at lunchtime and honestly it’s worth a wait.

My Favourite Destinations

My Dream Destinations

My long-time dream is to go on a week-long cruise around the Caribbean, then stay for a week on one of the Caribbean islands. I went to the Caribbean a few years ago, and have been wanting to go back ever since. The natural beauty there is simply just unbelievable, and I cannot wait to watch the sunset with the sand between my toes and a cold drink in my hand. I want to visit the Dominican Republic, Jamaica and Cancun (Mexico).
