About

Hi! We are Barun & Bidisha

We are trying to fuel our life journey with our passion for travel.

 

Thank you so much for visiting our website. We are IT professional duo from Kolkata, but preferred to be called ourselves bedouin and the world our home (inspired by Rabindranath Tagore's poem "Duronto Asha"). We have been in this profession for a decade and still love our jobs. Both of us share a common passion for traveling which give us an immense high. And, we, more often than not, (manage to) unchain ourselves from our desks to explore new places, meeting new people, trying out new food and immersing in the different cultures of the different places.

For us, life is about accumulating memories, not just possessions and now we’re creating those precious memories with our little daughter Brishti.

 

We caught the travel bug 5 years ago, and have been traveling on-and-off ever since. We travel to escape the chaos of our lives: the expectations, routines and demands placed upon us that make us feel like we’re constantly jammed into the power point. Travelling gives us a chance to slip into sea beaches or mountain side undisturbed with a cup of coffee. It provides us with an opportunity to tell more enriching stories and have something to cherish about in the years to come.

Our blogging journey started with sharing stories with family and friends. Slowly, we started sharing more about our journey — the things we loved and the things we didn't, the best part of our journey as well as the mistakes we made. We started receiving feedback from our readers. We found that the posts in which we shared our mistakes received more comments. We realized that many people were struggling with the same issues and sharing our experience would not only help them planning their trips effectively but also inspire them to travel to places beyond comfort zone. Our realization coupled with effort and best wishes of our readers gave birth to Bedouin's Diary.

Through our diary pages, we share our travel, food and dining experience and tips, to inspire you for one of your next trips you have always desired.

Wish you safe and happy travels.

The temple is located in the south-west corner of the inner enclosure of the temple complex, next to the sacred pond Rohini kunda. Food offered to Jagannath does not get sanctified as 'Mahaprasad' until it is also offered to Vimala. 2.  Non-vegetarian food offering inside Jagannath Temple complex During Durga Puja, Vimala is offered non-vegetarian food and animal sacrifice.
