Next in our weekly series of inspirational traveler is a traveling professor whose favorite book is a travel map.
My name is Vijay Dhankhar, an Indian by birth; however, want to measure all the beautiful places in the world in my lifespan. I am neither a full-time traveler and nor do I have plans to be the one in near future. I am a professor. However, traveling is like meditation for me. The happiness, calmness, comfort and satisfaction are the primary end results of my travel expeditions which I cherish a lot.
