Teja on the Horizon Teja on the Horizon

I am a writer-traveller in my free time, outside of my day job as an environmental scientist, in an ongoing effort to infuse travel and lifestyle with sustainability - and to acquire homes in a thousand strange places!

I write on my blog, Teja on the Horizon, about the experience of exploring sustainable and reflective travel, and about the true stories from wandering through our world.

"Travel gives you a home in a thousand places, but leaves you a stranger in your own land." - Ibn Battuta.
