Hello there! My name is Parvez and I would like to welcome you to Parvezish. You will find a glimpse of me and my work on this page.
From a stereotype life..
Ask anyone about Parvez Shaikh from two years ago. I’m sure you will come to know about an introvert, socially awkward guy who doesn’t talk much.
Just two years ago, I was blindly following the unwritten ‘rule of life’ and chasing a kick-ass job. After getting education and training in IT, I worked for a couple of companies as ‘an IT guy.’ This hard working ‘guy’ would fix up computer problems and always be ready to solve things out.
It might be hard but not impossible to leave your mediocre life behind.
I don’t think I should get into more details, but my life was simply boring and mediocre. I always had a feeling that something was missing, but I wasn’t sure what exactly it was.
After realizing that my life basically sucked, I reached a point when I would do anything to escape that life and what’s better than to travel? So I made a new year resolution in 2016: Visit at least one country before the year ends.
..to a travel life of my dreams
Traveling the world is a dream almost everyone had in their childhood. What holds most of us back from that dream is mostly money and our comfort zone.
It took me a lot of efforts to get out of my comfort and leave everything behind. But when I finally began my first solo travel, I realized I had discovered what was missing from my stereotype life: Freedom!
Cut to present day, I am still an introvert but I am living a life that many only dream of. I now travel the globe, get to know new people, learn about their culture, try out their cuisine and basically do everything I would have never done if I had chosen to live with my boring life.
Traveling helped me come out of my comfort zone. I overcame my fears and most importantly, I discovered myself. Turns out, traveling was the single best decision I had taken in a long time.
Who you are is how you travel..
I travel solo and don’t have a specific travel style. While most travel bloggers choose backpacking, affordable travel or luxury travel as their travel style, I kind of mix things up. This ‘cocktail’ of different travel styles helps me enjoy a little bit of everything.
Traveling the cheapest way possible or without money is never my goal. In fact, I would choose to work at a grocery store to earn money instead of begging people to help me out. I stay in ultra-affordable hostels, luxurious hotels, and homestays depending on the place I am traveling to.
While visiting a place, I prefer to spend enough time there and get used to the place and its people. I don’t have a bucket list of places to rush to. I take my time to explore places instead of running from one place to another to boast about it later.
Instead of visiting a famous landmark, I would always give preference to wander around unknown places.
You can live a travel life of your dreams, too..
We all have been through a time when we think about escaping our life. I started Parvezish to let people know that there’s more to life than a 9 to 5 job, getting married and raising kids. It’s definitely okay to take a break for your self.
If you ever feel locked up in your life, go travel to a new place for a while. I am sure you will stop complaining and start appreciating your life more than ever.
Everyone deserves a getaway.
Through Parvezish, my goal is to inspire and help my readers achieve their travel goals. Whether it’s temporary vacation or a life-long journey, I can help you plan and execute your getaway.
Thinking about starting a blog or becoming a travel writer? I can help you with your goals.
At last, travel life might not be for everyone. If you are unsure whether living out of a suitcase is right for you, you can contact me to help you take a decision.
