WHO ARE WE?
A trio bonded through a love for travel and family. Reading about places is magical, planning a trip is joyful, and touching down in any new destination fulfills us more than anything else ever could. Each of our identities has been shaped by our diverse exposures to an amazing body of mankind….and this is why we believe that we will always have a lifelong, global affair with seeing, understanding, and reacting to the world.
Nothing completes us as much as the exhilaration of new experiences. Travel has become an indispensable part of our hearts and souls. And good food is interwoven into the fabric of travel and new experiences. But does the world really need one more travel and food blog? We can’t answer that. But our goal is to extend this forum beyond ourselves and our own reflections, and to engage in a dialogue with fellow globetrotters- to create a place that is a blended cocktail of trip narratives, travel tips, the joys and woes of hotels and airplanes, and a diverse palette of everything else that shapes our tremendous cultural landscape. We will write about the mundane and the exotic….you are as likely to find a post on eating the most amazing falafels for under five bucks in NYC as you are to get a peek at the favelas in Brazil. We invite you to our home online. Visit, linger and share your own experiences.
In the words of the great Robert Louis Stevenson, “For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move.”
And that’s what we do here at A Global Affair. We never stop moving.
Lakshmi is a marketing professional by day, who would love to bake like Jacques Torres, write like Khaled Hosseini, dress like Coco Chanel, do good like Bill Gates, and travel like the team at AFAR magazine. She hopes A Global Affair will be her vehicle…to share and convert some of those dreams to reality.
Siddhi is a graduate from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, and hopes to one day pursue her love for travel and storytelling through cinema and social impact. She lives for good coffee, good stories, and high risk thrills- dreaming with Jack Kerouac’s eternal manifesto: “No matter, the road is life.”
Rohan Krishnan is an Advertising and Information Management student at Syracuse University.

He hopes to one day work for company that gives him opportunities to explore his passion while circumventing the globe at the same time.
