Travel gives us a unique frontier of knowledge. It starts with curiosity and ends with the expansion of it.

Welcome to Travel Realizations, my travel and realizations blog. I am Chirasree, a life long traveler, an avid reader and thinker. The pursuit of beauty, knowledge, and a meaningful life drives me. Any form of art that challenges the status quo and opens avenues for new thoughts, compassion and knowledge inspires me. I celebrate travel experiences that evoke profound realizations through interaction with nature, culture, museums, historical sites, libraries, exhibitions, and scientific explorations. Through my writing and photographs, I will take you to unique sites and places in North America, Europe, and Asia from the comfort of your digital screen. Join me on a journey around the world that will inspire and delight you!


I often feel days are like roots. The more I spend them in a place, the more that place makes room in my heart and memories.

Seasons are my favorite colors

Spring passes and one remembers one’s innocence.
Summer passes and one remembers one’s exuberance.
Autumn passes and one remembers one’s reverence.

Art and Culture
