A corporate escapee’s quest to un[t]ravel the world one story at a time.

Hey, I'm Abhishek Vaid, a business strategy manager turned travel filmmaker.

The Untravel Show isn’t about not travelling. Rather it intends to inspire you to go beyond the ‘beaten to death’ itinerary and travel far & beyond – for food, for local communities, for inspiring stories, and for unseen unheard places.

I had spent the first 30 years of my life as per the societal norms - engg, MBA & a 9-to-7 corporate job. I want to spend the next 30 breaking the norms.

    Landour - A Love Affair With Winding Walks & Chocolate Pancakes

    Landour - A Love Affair With Winding Walks & Chocolate Pancakes

    This travel podcast series is meant to uncover the secret gems and their stories. 

    And its fitting that the pilot episode be about Landour - the place I fell in love with 4 years back.  

    Nestled among the Dehradun Himalayas, Landour is a small cantonment town (just 5 kms away from Mussoorie) thats's home to India's favourite author, Ruskin Bond. From pine forests to vintage cottages to cosy bakeries, Landour seems like an old colonial town lost in time. The winding roads, the fresh mountain air and the fact that Landour is in a no-new-construction zone, have made it possible to preserve its old world charm and character for so many decades.  

    And this travel podcast is a traveler's guide to know everything about Landour
