The Little Desi Traveller

I have been so focused with writing up my travel blogs that I haven’t properly introduced myself! How rude of me. So without further ado…..

The names Dee! I’m in my 20s and currently reside in Toronto, Canada. While I was born in Bangladesh, I’ve lived in Canada for a majority of my life and am very proud to be Canadian. And one of the great things about being Canadian is that my passport opens the door for me to travel to a breadth of countries with ease!

Quintessential pic of the CN Tower!

I’ve been privileged to be able to travel from a very young age and it is one of my favourite things to do. I absolutely love learning about cultures, and creating memories I couldn’t make just being at home. I’m very into foreign television (mostly anime I’m almost like an otaku) and besides biriyani, I LOVE sushi.

While I enjoy travelling very much it isn’t something I anticipate doing full time. I am working towards a career at home that I very much enjoy and couldn’t give up. Currently, I hold a Bachelor’s and Master’s in Neuroscience and will be working on a second Master’s in Occupational Therapy this Fall. I’m super excited to be pursuing a career as a healthcare professional! So I currently travel when I can, in between school/work.

At the moment, my travel plans have been restricted, but once its safe to do so I would like to visit the following:

  • More of Canada! Despite travelling to so many different countries I’ve barely seen much of my own.
  • Thailand. Was supposed to go this year, unfortunately a virus had other plans.
  • Peru. Would love to climb to Machu Picchu.
  • Maldives. I mean have you seen the pics? GORGEOUS

While I’ve been grounded at home I decided to make my own travel blog. I consider it as my public diary for the whole internet to read. I’ve been writing about my adventures retrospectively, starting with my most recent travels. Having a background in neuroscience I also try to make blog posts that combine science and travelling. Hopefully you all enjoy reading those as well!

It can be hard travelling as a brown female at times. The community doesn’t often like girls travelling without their family or spouse. Honestly, the amount of times I’ve been told “you should focus on getting married instead” is ridiculous. But travelling is something I’m passionate about and I refuse to let some gossiping aunties get in my way!

I hope you all enjoy my blogs as much as I enjoy writing them!

I love science and travelling. Here I'll be talking about both (either separately or merged). Are you ready?
