I run an Internet marketing services company in New Jersey (with specialization in campaign optimization for online lead generation). We have an operations and delivery center based in India that employs 100 professionals in software, design and online marketing.
We are adventure travelers, and love exploring new places, especially local culture and cuisine. We ran a Japanese restaurant (Sushi - first of its kind in Gurgaon, India) for 4 years before we left for the US.
Our first preference while choosing a holiday destination is the local cuisine. Even when I'm in India, I prefer traveling to places where the food is a definite choice and attraction.
I can't live without my tablet computer where I usually keep my videos of TV series, like Prison Break, 24, Modern Family etc.
I am a "learning" photographer, and am still waiting for that one picture that makes me go "wow". I am a novice as of now, and am hoping to be able to create an album on my experiences of the last two years when I changed countries.
I've been lucky to have traveled a lot during the past 10 years, but a few places that I keep going again and again are Dubai & Hong Kong. Except for Africa, I've visited places in all continents, though Egypt and Turkey are next on my list for this coming year.
One of my most memorable vacations was in New York last year, when we rented a four bedroom villa in Catskills and drove up the mountains three hours from where we live. It was an out of this world experience, and we are looking forward to doing it again sometime this summer.
I don't really like traveling within the US, though my work keeps me in a plane every two months. What I dislike about this place is the standardization of culture and cuisine. It's very difficult to find a variation in the food, culture shopping even when you travel 3000 miles from home, quite unlike India where one finds the taste of food changing every couple of hundred kilometers.
