About Global Gallivanting

Global Gallivanting is a blog that covers the best in travel and living a location independent lifestyle. Since I’ve been based in Goa, India for a few year Global Gallivanting has become known as one of the top India travel blogs and Goa travel blogs and one of the best India travel blogs by foreigners. 

After I began traveling full time I was so inspired by what I saw and the lessons I learned that I started Global Gallivanting in February 2013 because I hoped that, by showing you all the incredible experiences and lessons learned from long term travel, I could inspire others to make their dreams a reality too.

I’m often asked what does ‘Gallivanting’ mean?

Gallivanting means – to roam or travel for pleasure

The Oxford Dictionary even gives this example for Gallivant:

“gal·li·vant

ˈɡaləˌvant/

Verb informal

To go around from one place to another in the pursuit of pleasure or entertainment.

“she quit her job to go gallivanting around the globe”

And this is exactly what I did!

Gallivanting sums up the way that I like to travel. I love to be free and travel spontaneously, I have an insatiable thirst for adventure, to explore the world slowly but surely, to marvel at it’s beauty, to immerse myself in the local culture and seeking adventurous, unique and off the beaten track experiences and to have the luxury of time – to learn, to laugh, to love, to breathe, to dream and to roam free.
