Via Diaries With Blogger Naina Madan

Category : Via Diaries

Naina Madan is the solo female traveler – and very emphatically so by choice not by chance. With her bright red bag always by her side, this is a girl set to travel far and wide. She works a regular job during the week and wanders off to new destination on the weekends. She is the kind of traveler we all want to, and yet hardly get to be.  A foodie at heart, her journeys are inspired just as much to find a new gastronomical delight as to find the picturesque location.
