Last year when we interviewed Nidhi Tiwari from Women Beyond Boundaries, she was just back after spearheading a trans-continental expedition from Delhi to London. It was a team of three and she was the only driver! Well this time, she has outdone her last by a major scale and are we not proud of her! On December 29th 2016, she became the first Indian to drive across the coldest inhabited region of the earth and she did it all driving SOLO! Not impressed? This is a road where even seasoned truck drivers (belonging to that very region) double up because going there alone is like signing your own death warrant. Our lady in shining armor did it alone!
The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (DSWT) is one of the most respected Elephant orphanage in Nairobi, Kenya. They have reared over 200 orphan elephants till date. Over 100 of these are now living in wild and many return frequently, for instance to show off their wild born babies! These are the pleasures that nature bestows upon you for taking good care of its people….in this case Elephants! It is a remarkable work the entire team of this sanctuary has been rendering for decades now. It is impossible to return from DWST without being moved by their work, and the animals they rear tenderly here. We proudly present this interview with Dr. Dame Daphne Sheldrick D.B.E, who founded the DSWT with an utmost dedication, passion and love for these animals.
There is something about bikes, miles of wilderness and harsh terrains that we at Bohotraveller love so much. Bikers are sort of a crazy breed.....but in a nice way and we love featuring those adventurous stories about bike trips! We are bringing you yet another dude, Suhas Ramakrishnan, who covered Australia from East to West Coast on a bike, a distance of 4304 miles (6927 kms).

Some journeys mark the triumph of Human spirit in its absolute form! When met with Henry and Sam from Suffolk, England, we realised that they are going to embark on one such journey- on foot! “6500 miles, 13 million steps, a quarter of the way around the world” is a huge undertaking! What makes this challenge even more extraordinary is that it is for a noble cause- spreading awareness about Brain cancer and raising fund for the same.
