Via Diaries With Blogger Akanksha Dureja

Category : Via Diaries

Via Diaries

Akanksha is a travelholic- a girl whose best friends are not diamonds but travel vouchers to some place exotic. Or ordinary. As long as it’s a place she hasn’t been to before. Passionate about writing, travel, food, books and the freedom struggle of women in India- she is also a feminist to the core!

Starting in 2007, her blog provides interesting views on travel – taking a while to enjoy the views, digging her feet deep in sand, flying high on a mountain top. She also writes actively about the change this world needs to bring when it comes to gender discrimination.
