Life as a Traveller
Deepanshu said in an interview that he was preparing for CAT exam and he saw one video about travelling without money and borrowed some money from his friend. Then, he convinced his parents about his decision and set out on a tour of Thailand for 105 days. He said in an interview,
“My plan was never to make YouTube videos or become a vlogger. It was just a way to travel while making some money from it.”
His style of exploring the world is unique and he does not even google about the places he visits. He said in an interview,
“I hitchhike and couchsurf my way through all my travels. I have hitchhiked more than 25,000 km in the past two years. I don’t do cinematic shots like other travel vloggers, but focus on showing people raw footage that they wouldn’t otherwise see.”
