Raksha Rao - About Me

Hola! I’m Raksha Rao, chief travel blogger at The Roving Heart and I welcome you to this piece of the internet that I call home!

Traveling puts me out of my comfort zone frequently, and I have ended up trying adventures I never thought I would like bungee jumping, for instance.

I love long-term solo travel — something I never thought I’d be doing when I was growing up. Especially coming from a small-town middle-class family.

Here are my favorites:

Solo trip to Europe for 3 months on a budget

Solo Trip to Central Asia for 2 Months

I’ve spent time and money figuring out different avenues to travel and making it a way of life.

Let me help you realise your travel dream and fill your life with exciting adventures!

Much Love,
