THE TRAVELOGUE WITH A DIFFERENCE
Dhristi in many Indian languages means view or observation. Business and leisure trips combined in the last 20 years I have visited hundreds of places and attractions around the world. With Dhristi.com my effort is to create a simple and user-friendly travelogue sharing my travel experience with places visited, Hotels and resorts stayed, events and attractions, Travel tips and more … Dhristi.com, The travelogue with a difference.
HISTORY OF DHRISTI.COM
During the early stages of my professional career, I had to travel to Europe often and I was not that flexible to adapt to different food styles. So on business trips, I used to book hotels mainly near Indian and Arabic restaurants. For future use, I used to take note of the restaurant location, near by hotel name or landmark, photos … this has been an ongoing process for many years.
The turning point was when one of my friends who had to travel to Poland, shared a similar food taste with me had contacted to suggest a Hotel in Warsaw and a few tourist attractions he could visit during the weekend. After going through my travel notes, I mailed him the summarized information. I then posted the same content along with my photo collections on Facebook that received a good feedback. Later, I started to share my trip details via social media under the name Dhristi.
In 2018 I consolidated all my travel notes, photo gallery and created the travelogue site dhristi.com. In parallel, I have created pages on almost all key social media channels but because of time constraints the focus that time was only on Facebook.
2021, with the launch of the new mobile responsive website, mobile app and more social media channels the goal is to switch Dhristi.com to an inspirational and informational travelogue.
I believe picture speaks louder than words. Almost all the images included in the gallery is my own photography, many times with normal digital camera and smartphones (exception is a few RF images included in header and blogs). Kindly note that what’s included in Dhristi is my experience at the time of visiting a place/ hotel/ restaurant/ attraction and not essential that your experience be the same, as its dependent on many factors like your interests and tastes, the season of travel and more.
Hope you have enjoyed visiting www.dhristi.com. I believe this travelogue will be useful for business and leisure travellers who have a similar view and approach. If you have any feedback or suggestion please let me know. Please also visit the Social Media pages of Dhristi.com
