As an LGBTQ+IA girl from a small town, she’s living her life in a way that most only dream of.

A Journey Born from Family Adventures

Arunima’s love for travel didn’t just spring up overnight. From childhood, she embarked on numerous trips with her family and friends.

Currently, Arunima is on an awe-inspiring solo cycling tour across Africa. Pedaling through remote villages and vast landscapes, she immerses herself in the continent’s rich culture and natural beauty. Her courage and determination have stunned many, as she navigates her way through unfamiliar territories alone.

From Civil Aviation to Full-Time Traveler

Before dedicating herself to full-time travel, Arunima worked various jobs to fund her journeys, despite having a background in civil aviation. It was in mid-2020 that she decided to embrace traveling as a full-time pursuit. The traveller is committed to a life on the move and doesn’t intend to settle in one place.

Exploring the World: One Country at a Time

Arunima’s international travel adventures began with a trip to Nepal, followed by explorations in Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Oman, the UAE, Bhutan, Bangladesh, and Ethiopia.

The Epic Bicycle Journey Across 22 Countries

In November 2022, Arunima embarked on a two-year bicycle journey to explore 22 countries. This ambitious expedition was flagged off by Sports Minister V. Abdurahiman in Malappuram. Starting from Kerala, she cycled 2,500 km to Mumbai in just ten days before flying to Oman.

On a recent post where she dressed like a tribal community in Kenya, she faced a lot of backlash for not covering up appropriately. But her supporters were quick to defend and encourage her to embrace all such experiences.

Embracing the Unexpected

Initially planning to visit nearly 20 countries, Arunima has had to adapt her plans along the way. The unpredictable nature of travel means that flexibility is key, and she embraces every twist and turn with enthusiasm and grace.

An Inspiration for Aspiring Travelers
