This section is all about the human in us. We will touch on matters that are dearest to our hearts, matters on family, parenting, life and travel experiences. For ease of storytelling we will unfold our lives from our early interest in outdoors, to how we met, some of the lemons life threw at us and how we are cherishing our lemonades! We will bring a part of our life to you once every month.
Growing up as an only child, Sid’s most cherished companions were his bike and the endless ocean that was his backyard. You talk to him about his childhood evenings and his eyes would find a home within the ocean sea bed and the endless treasure and stories it holds! He used to spend his evenings investigating the jelly fish, crabs and live shells that the ocean brought to him.
Sid is blessed with parents who love to travel and in his younger years, they would travel 4 months at a stretch from cannoing in the amazons looking for piranas, picnicking in the Serengetti, to travelling across the philipines, unites states and many more. Sid’s parents have lived in six very varied countries across the world, and taken on exploring their host country to another level altogether. Sid’s love for outdoors may have been inborn and reinforced by the landscape of his early years, but his mum has imbibed in him the ‘go get lost’ philosophy from very early days. Mother and son would be out and about in the wadis of Oman, and his mum would ask him to take his old range rover through all types of terrain often getting stuck. They would befriend the locals who would kindly get them out of the pickle and embrace them as family inviting them home for Arabic coffee, dates and some local produce.
Sid was surrounded by nature during all his formative years, and while he went through the motions of city life, his heart has always yearned for the endless adventures hidden in exploring the outdoors.
