Hello and welcome to Wanderlust And City Dust.
I am Arunabha Chakraborty, an Indian passport holder, and a Digital Marketer. I completed my M.Sc. in Business Administration in 2017 from the University of Rome ‘Tor Vergata’.
I love to travel, eat different foods from various cuisines, experience different cultures, make new friends, and meet other travelers. That is what happiness means to me.
What was my first overseas trip?
The first time I travel overseas was when I was 25. I have been to Italy.
Why do I want to travel?
A lot of individuals ask me about this, however, I have no clear answers to it. Yet there is some delight inside to explore and meet new people, invest some energy of my existence with them.
Travelling has widened my view of the world and of life as a whole. It has made me more grateful for what I have and what I have had, even the not-so-pleasant ones. From my experience, the more you travel, the more open-minded and appreciative you become.
How this blog would help you?
When I first travel to Italy, I had no idea of what to do, where to go, and how to plan a trip on my own. I got into tout’s words and ended up spending more than I needed to.
If you are looking for travel ideas or travel on a budget, this is the place.
