About The Wandering Core

Hey there!

Welcome to “The Wandering Core”, I’m so glad you reached here. 

About me

I’m Shivani, born and brought in New Delhi, India and completely in love with my home city. I’m a software developer by profession and an avid book lover with a book in hand mostly. I am a die-hard foodie, all-time chai fan, and a coffee addict.  I prefer vegetarian food over its counterpart. Being grown up in India made me a huge fan of Mughlai food, including non-vegetarian. Throughout my blog, you’ll find various references to my love for Indian food. Yet, I never shy away from trying anything, well…not anything…sea-food sends a chill through my spine, so anything but that. Love to keep myself engaged by planning my next expedition and also enjoy impromptu trips. I am usually the person behind the camera, not so good in front of the camera 😉

Why ‘The Wandering Core’? 

Moving on, to my next passionate commitment – Travel – bringing a shine to my eyes, smile at my lips and excitement in my heart. 

Despite traveling a lot since childhood, I never thought to jot down my quirky stories. Although always had a yearning towards writing, but ultimately landed me a job in IT industry. Fast forward to 2017, the year I turned 30, I started sharing my travelogues through “The Wandering Core” with a self-promise to take more risks and travel more with a passion to visit as many countries as possible before *actually* leaving this world.

Still Single, I sometimes travel solo and also with my family and try to break that corporate bondage with a dream to become free one day.

Thus said, the blog will mainly cover my travel stories, (a lot of) photography, travel tips, & hotels/restaurants and flights reviews I have been to. 

Countries I have traveled to – India (still exploring), France, Switzerland, Austria, Czech Republic, and Hungary till date…

*Do what you love and love what you do!!* I guess its never too late to start chasing your dreams, I started mine…What about you?

    Great site and I’ll be back!

    Many thanks for stopping by and following my Travel and Photography site.

    I solo-backpacked in India for only a month back in 1985, when a 35mm camera was the only available tool in technology. I mostly used slide film. Check some images at my blog and let me know what you think.

      I think I can assure you..you won’t be disappointed 🙂 Delhi has ample amount of well-known (& hidden) historical gems which can keep one intrigued. Hope you make your way to Delhi sooner than later 🙂
