McCool travel interview with Sandy and Vyjay of Voyager

5 Minutes With Sandy and Vyjay of Voyager

For McCool Travel’s 135th travel profile, I am pleased to present Sandy and Vyjay of Voyager (IMVoyager on most social media channels). Like my prior interview (Stef Ferro), Sandy and Vyjay appear in the top 10 of the top 1000 Travel Bloggers list (number 7 this week) and I wanted to know more about them. So I asked …

Sandy and Vyjay’s bio:

We are Sandy and Vyjay, a travel blogger couple. Traveling has been our passion and we love exploring world cultures, seas, mountains, nature, food, art, history, and urban places. We are the co-founders of Voyager which was born out of a burning desire to share our travel experiences and stories with others. Our travels across Asia, Europe, and North America have transformed us as individuals and we hope to share the same immersive experiences with our readers through our blog. When we are not traveling, we are writing and when we are not writing, we are reading.

There are many stored away securely in the inner recesses of the mind, but the one that jumps out is of standing in front of Michael Angelo’s David in Florence and getting goosebumps. That moment was so awe-inspiring that it stays etched in memory.

  1. forget about everything else and just live the moment

Travel to experience, not to check off places
