We are a journalist/photographer duo and work in conjunction with Tourism Boards, offbeat and luxury hotels, and fashion brands to create exciting and relatable marketing campaigns. We have a highly-engaged audience, so working with us ensures extensive exposure on a number of social media channels – Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google +, and Instagram. In addition to real time promotion, we write promotional blog posts within weeks of visiting the destination/receiving the product.

 

Writing and photography are the two things that make us really happy. So we also pen articles and photo-essays for some of the most popular newspapers, magazines, and online portals in the world including National Geographic Magazine, BBC Good Food Magazine, The Times of India, www.afar.com, and Travel and Escape.

  1. I absolutely LOVE Bruised Passports. I have not traveled much, but its been my dream to travel the world. I have been saving money since i was a kid so that i can grow up and spend each penny on travelling. I know one day this dream will come true. Your blog helps me to keep this dream alive. GREAT WORK!!

    • Nidhi what a sweet message- totally brought a smile to my face 🙂 I hope you get to travel the world soon

  2. It’d be helpful if you guys let me know how to get someone to sponsor your travel/product. Do I have to write to them or is it usually them who contact you?

    • Hey Su

      Thanks for leaving a comment. To answer your question, brands usually contact us instead of the other way around. Your blog functions as a portfolio of your work – both written and photographic. Producing good (and unique!) content is of paramount importance and the rest just follows 🙂 Just make sure you have a Media Kit and the ‘Contact’ tab clearly visible on your website

  3. Hello,

  4. hey Bruised Passports,

    reply awaited 😀
    regards

    I have travelled Swiss, France, countries in south east asia, middle east, Turkey, Mauritius, New Zealand etc.

    I want to understand what do you expect from a buddy who works with you…and its not for money all the times. I look at life as fun…

  10. I chanced upon your blog while i was reading emptyrucksacks, which again i chanced upon while working, at my boring desk. My profession allows me the luxury of a little travel, but again only when work calls and for the work, which by now would have been totally clear is not at all interesting, Audits can be really boring you know. All that said, you guys are an inspiration for the lot of us wanderlust Indian kids. Like someone said, i have wanted to travel the world since i was a kid, but i never took to saving enough, always thinking however much i save would not be enough,but this blog, combined with the Emptyrucksacks, has given wings to my dream again. So till i save and get on the road. Thanks for sharing your stories with us, and thanks for the inspiration.

    • Hey Akshay,

      Thank you so much for such a wonderful message – it made our day 🙂 It’s all about priorities and for us travelling is much more important than big savings 🙂

      Hope you get to travel a lot in this year and the years to come. Let us know if we could help in any way !

  11. Love your site!!! Traveling is my ultimate happiness (both solo and with friends) and being on your site makes me incredibly happy. Thanks for all the tips – if there is any way I could contribute (no money involved), feel free to drop me a line. I’m a microbiologist who loves photography and culturally stimulating experiences!

    Happy New Years!

    • Hey Peggy – thanks a ton for your warm message. We rarely accept guest posts on Bruised Passports, but we’ll definitely drop you a line if that changes 🙂 Hope you continue to enjoy reading Bruised Passports

  12. Hi guys, wonderful site, wonderful trips, I´ll get some of them!

    Thanks, Cecilio

    • Hey Edmundo – we would love to visit Patagonia – hope we make our way there soon 🙂

  13. Dear Bruised Passports,

    I am a traveler and spend my holidays (and money) traveling to different places. I have always wanted to share my experience on the places I’ve been through a media; I have tried blogging for a while but grew out of it. I am also a photographer. I would like to know if there is a way to contribute to your website, no charge, just a name post would be more than appreciated.

    Will be waiting for your reply.

    • Dear Hind – thanks a million for writing to us. We accept only the rare Guest Post on Bruised Passports currently but that might change in the future. Do drop us a writing/photography sample at info at bruisedpassports dot com. We’ll look forward to hearing from you 🙂

  15. Hi,
    Loved your blog and you happy couple….just a request…for reading the above articles comfortably, can you add in a zoom feature?
    Have a lovely 2015 🙂 god bless

    • Hey Rose – that’s a great idea. Thanks for the feedback, we’ll work on it 🙂

  16. your story is inspiring! I took a half year to go travel around the world, and born out of that was my travel blog, Visit50.com. But – it looks like you’ve been so successful at finding ways to make it work with a range of companies. Impressive!

    • Thanks Todd – maintaining a website is a lot of work but we do enjoy it a lot 🙂 Will definitely take a look at your blog too

  17. Wow! Insane concept, Insane people, Insane life! Like nothing can be sane when you do what you love 😀 Hats of to you guys.
    Is it possible that even I can become insane with you guys? I would love to! What does it require to work with you’ll?

    • Hey Darshan – right now it’s just the two of us at Bruised Passports. We’re SO happy to hear you enjoy reading our blog and following us around the world – yay 🙂

  18. Hi Savi Vid,

    I see your updates on facebook everyday! Its Amazing.. We all visit different places but fail to capture the moments perfectly.
    I must say the pics you post are unique, awesome and we can imaging the whole place you visited with just one pic.
    I am a lil jealous of your profession 😉 coz i always wanted to live the way u do..I will post my CV !

    Thanks
    Ramya

    • Thanks Ramya 🙂 It’s always a delight to hear from you

  19. Hi Savi Vid, I just chanced upon your website while doing some research for an upcoming holiday to London and I must say that you had me glued. I have spent the last few hours just reading your travel experiences. I myself am an avid traveller and love to explore new places at any given opportunity , food and photography being both a passion. We (me and better half ) have similar interests and love to explore places off the beaten path and discover hidden gems in a city and try local foods. I totally love reading your experiences and your pictures. I do have a collection of pictures of my travels and have also dabbled a bit on writing and chronicling a few of my experiences. I am inspired by you both to actually get down and start writing more articles of my travel. I would love an opportunity to work with you guys.

    • Dear Sameeksha,

      Thanks a lot for your message 🙂 we are not hiring at the moment but should that change, we will drop you an email. Take care and happy travels.

  20. Hello Sami Vid,

    I am your regular follower on Instagram and unlike you I am also a travel freak who have travelled to almost 28 countries of Europe, US, Asia & African region. But the way you capture moments makes me wonder that I have to travel all those places again whereby I must collect all those special moments I enjoyed in all those places. Though I am not so good at writing articles like you do but I am thinking of writing down my experiences right from Vietnam to Serbia & New York to Colorado. I appreciate both of you for teaching this and wish you a wonderful journey ahead!!

    Cheers,
    Kamal

    • Hi Kamal,

      Thanks for your message 🙂 You should document your travels – it’s a lot of fun.

      Cheers

  21. Heya crazy duo,

    I’m completely mesmerized with you Guys… I thought I’m a funny traveler who likes to do all crazy stuff while traveling alone or as a couple… but man!!! You guys are just fab… I would really follow your blog now on…

    Much love & hugs
    Vaishali

  30. Hi,

    CollarFolk is a portal for planning and booking pet friendly holidays in India. Was wondering if you’ve had any experience traveling with pets? Would you be willing to explore something like that which we can then cover?

    Let me know what you think.

    Enjoy seeing your work!

    • Hi Rukmini,

      Thanks for your message. We don’t have pets so no experience on that front 🙂

      Cheers

    • Hehehe Priyanka that sounds like a great idea 🙂

  35. Hi just read about your website on Facebook…. It is really awesome to see you guys happily and freely travelling across the globe.

Had been to Israel Egypt Jordan in this month… If u want I can send the pics

    • Hey Tanmay,

  36. Hey guys travelling has been my passion too and so there is one query coming up in mind after reading all ur web things,,, do uh really earn enough to make ur travel possible i mean don’t you faces any money problems?

    • Hi Harshna,

      In addition to what we earn from the blog and our freelance work, we also use money from our savings to fund our travels. In the end, it’s all about priorities and spending money on things that make one truly happy. For us, that’s travelling 🙂

  37. Hi,

    Your journey and blogs are very inspiring, i really enjoyed reading them. Even i love to travel and visit new places. I visited my first foreign country in 2013 and now have knocked down 7. Every new country is a motivation to travel more, i have started picking up pace and already booked for 2 more in next months. I am 27 and want to beat my age with number of travled countries, hope it happens some day.

    Keep writing and sharing your Journey.

    Best Regards,

    Ankit

    Just read an article about you both on FB. Quite an interesting thing that you both do. Happy to see childhood friends being together. I also want to travel see new places, try out new food. Always been a fan or admirer of the shows like Zaika India Ka, Highway on my Plate.
    Though I don’t have the guts to quit the job and follow my dream but your story surely has given me some light lets see if i can gather some courage to follow my dream & plans.

    Your blog are one of very few which engages a non reader like me since you take us too the place with mere words. Will be fun to meet you. Keep Travelling

    Regards
    Sunny

  42. Hi Vid and Savi, it’s indescribable when I came to know about you both for your love of travel because this was my die hard interest from my childhood to do this as my profession.Can I join you both as an assistant in any angle for your convenience or as a first employee of bruisedpassports.com .Pls let me know a positive result for a person like you both who love to explore the world with interests in cafe,markets & heritage places along a very little idea in photography which can be developed.Thank you. Waiting with fingers crossed.

    • Hey Arun – thanks a million. We’re not looking for people to join our team presently but will definitely keep you in mind if that changes 😀

  43. Hello Sir & Mam

I have been saving money since i was a kid so that i can grow up and spend each penny on travelling but its not as much as i need for it . I know one day this dream will come true. Your blog helps me to keep this dream alive.

As i m not so rich who could afford this entirelife trip or even a single trip but yur blog helps me make my dream still alive .Help me out sir

    • Hey Himanshu – Great hearing from you. You should try to undertake a course or degree on travel writing, hosting TV shows or travel photography if you are passionate about travelling.That can help you explore new places and earn as you go along 🙂

  44. I just love travelling. Its one of the things which makes your inner soul much beautiful. For me travelling is everything, I have a dream of travelling around whole, and specially one the hidden and unknown places on the globe. Just came to know about your blogs..they are clean and realy motivational for someone who is a freaker travelling. From the last two year i am saving my money for travelling and will surely come along with it. And you two are simply wonderfull, there is so much one must gain about the world by reading your blogs and clicks.

    • Hey Rohitash – it’s always good to hear from a fellow wanderluster.All the best with everything and happy travels 🙂

    Love & Peace
    Parama

    • Hey Parama: So good to hear from you – we’re so happy to hear you enjoy reading Bruised Passports 🙂 Right now, we’re not looking for more more people to work with us. But we’ll def. contact you if something comes up 🙂

  48. Hi Savi Vid, awesome blog and great wor going on . I too love travelling but as of now never got opportunity other than andaman and sweden .Vietnam n cambodia is next stop and your blog has been helpful to prep myself.Needed to know how can i contribute from myside for your blog .Please kindly let me know.I would love to.

    • Hey there – hope you have an amazing time in Cambodia and Vietnam 🙂 We’re currently not looking for contributors on Bruised Passports but will definitely get in touch if that changes 🙂

  49. Hey!!! Savi and Vid you guys are innovative and courageous to start something like this, Keep it up and if possible along with fashion, travel and experiences of stay if you could possibly also talk about health & fitness on the go, talking about how to travel if someone has a health condition or for weight management i think it might help a lot of other people like me and encourage them to travel as well…
    BTW both of you look fit and fab together

    • Thanks a lot for your kind words Neha – we frequently blog about staying healthy on the go as it’s our priority 🙂 We try to eat super healthy and work out at least 4 times a week irrespective of where we are. Do read 2 articles – ‘Packing for a round the world trip’ and ‘Staying healthy on the go’ for more details 🙂

  50. Hey guys! I want to be a traveller too. Can you help me with it?

    • Hey Anvi – there’s nothing stopping you. Go for it 🙂

  51. http://www.indiatimes.com/culture/travel/this-couple-travelled-to-65-countries-in-8-years-only-to-make-travelling-their-mode-of-income-255821.html

    Just read this article….you guys are totally cool…not much of vlogging I suppose….please do that too

    • Hey Jigesh,

      We’ll be uploading more videos soon 🙂

  52. hii guys i really like ur blog and i just wanted to knw tht which is the best place u liked the most….. and just loved it

    • It’s a tough choice between Iceland, New Zealand, and Ladakh 🙂

  53. Hi,

    I’ve just read an article about you guys on IndiaTimes and it’s really exciting to know about you guys. Then I headed to your website and checked it out. Looks awesome. There I saw the tab “Work with us”, so thought of dropping a message and if I could pitch in with you guys and give in my efforts. I too have a passion of travelling and fashion but due to my 9 to 5 job and not a proper channel can’t and don’t know how to proceed. Would appreciate your help and guidance.

    Thanks,
    Manvi Bhargava

    • Hey Manvi,

      Thanks for your comment 🙂 If you really love travel and fashion, perhaps you could start a blog / related freelance work along with your 9 to 5 job and see how it goes? If it works out, you can leave your corporate job and concentrate on travelling – just a thought 🙂

  54. Hi Vid/Savi.! The first thing that I would love to say is that you two look amazing together and I believe that one of the reasons behind what you are today is your togetherness. What a lovely couple! I was very tired and sad today, both of you made me happy! Thanks..! 😀

    Your website and the work that you are doing is such an inspiration to the youth wherein gives us a message that even travelling can be made a full time profession. There are people who work in travel channels and make money while travelling, but they are hired and company takes care of the rest. In your case you are self funded. I think it’s your self belief, determination, passion and risk taking attitude which has helped you to be a kind of pioneer in this thing. I just pray that your empire keeps getting bigger and bigger and……. yup, keep posting!! It’s always nice to hear from guys like you. 😀

    • Hey Shouvik,

      Thank you ever so much 🙂 Your comment put a big smile on our faces!

  55. Too Thrilled to write much as of now for it really brought me face to face with my long, almost the same lenghth that you have been travelling now, fear of travelling and doing what comes straight from the inside. I feel ashamed and admire you to bring out the feelings out of me. Congratulations on keeping up the trend for living for your soul

    • Hey Vijay,

      Best way to get over fear is to try the thing that scares you 🙂 Perhaps one step at a time? In any case, no need to feel ashamed – it’s absolutely ok if you don’t want to or feel like doing certain things in life 🙂

      Cheers

  56. Hey Guys

    Writing this message while watching your Taiwan travel episode on TLC… made up my mind to backpack to Taiwan..Thx.
    A very resourceful blog site, keep it up…

    Regds

    Krish

    • Hey Krish,

      Hope you enjoyed the show 🙂

      Have a great trip to Taiwan!

  57. Frankly speaking you guys have further fueled my dreams of being a traveler and to live my life that way. I have traveled almost whole of South India except for some parts of Kerala and mind you I’ve covered all by road. I had first covered until Rameswaram from Chennai in the year 2010 and until Kanyakumari from Bengaluru in 2014 which also included the eastern parts of Kerala during the return journey and very recently the whole stretch of Karnataka and Goa in May which lasted about 15 days in total. My love for travelling started when i was 11 years old in 2007 when we went for an all round Maharastra trip on road. I am glad that i have been to Goa from Mumbai on road and also been there recently travelling through Karnataka instead. I still am counting at 15,623 Kms till date. I’ve penned down all the details of those trips but i feel real sad that i had unfortunately lost most of my pictures because of some laptop glitch. I would like to say that you people have inspired me towards pursuing my dream. I would be glad if i can get any advice from you regarding different aspects that are important while travelling to a certain place. Looking forward to your reply.

  68. Hey saVId®,
    I am 24, working in Kuwait in restaurant chain as manager since last 2 & half years. I am going to take a job hunt vacation in October for 24 days. India, UAE & Oman are my destinations and returning back to Kuwait for last 3 months of my contract. Even though I am going for vacation,I don’t feel so great about it.

    I want a suggestion from both of you in choosing my career ahead as I have done hotel management from IHM Goa. I do have knowledge of tourism. I really want to make adventure my life. I don’t feel like staying at one place and just want to work while I roam around the world.

    Eagerly waiting for a reply from you. Mail me pleas.

    • Hey Jenil – you should definitely follow your heart and pursue your love for travel. You can do this in various ways – some jobs your could consider are travel photographer, journalist, TV show host, air steward etc – of course the profession you choose depends on the skill set and education you have. All the best with everything 🙂

  69. Hey, I am a travel lover. Travelling is my passion like u both have . I am looking for the same career as you guys have built even I have done my education in travel sector. So I want your suggesion about how to make travel my full time job I want to explore new place , learn new things , want to meet people from different place and want to make travel as my life & career and this is my biggest goal. So please advise me how to make it possible.

    • Hey Harsh I wish we had an easy answer to your question but I don’t. I can tell you what we did

      Both of us educated ourselves as much as we could and worked in London for almost 10 years, to save money for this round the world trip.

      We also blogged with full time jobs for 3 years, built our blog from scratch. Gradually we made the transition and and quit our jobs to become full time travellers. Now we work full time in travel and have a host of location independent jobs to sustain ourselves on the road and pay for future travels. You can read the following articles on our website (www.bruisedpassports.com) for some pointers and all the details:

      1) Who are Savi and Vid
      2) Our Lives are changing
      3) You asked, we answered
      4) 5 tips for bloggers and travellers

      Hopefully that’ll answer your questions 🙂

      Much love
      Savi and Vid

  70. Hey Savi and Vid,

    My name is Sonali Dyal. Am a psychologist by profession and a fellow traveler and freelance writer (travel articles as well as short stories and social issues).

    I recently wrote a piece for the website I work with (yet to be published post) and have given links to your website. The theme for the article is why travelers are receiving flak about propagating the need to travel and about travelers actually breaking the myth about this and the reasons for their lifestyle (regarding travel). Have spoken about how most people are working for years and saving money in order to spend on travel (just like the two of you) and thus included the link to your site. Basically for the cynical or should I say non believers (am being kind!) to read about a journey like yours and know that there is more than meets the eye!

    Would share the link with you when published. Just wanted to mention that am sharing your blog page on the article.

    Thanks for always inspiring !

    • Hey Sonali – thanks a ton for thinking of us and including us in the article. As with everything else, there’s a lot more to travel blogging than meets the eye. It is an extremely demanding professions (even though we love every bit of it) 🙂 Most importantly, travel bloggers are here to only show readers the art of possible and encourage them to experiment with their boundaries – no one can force a reader to take a rash or careless decision

  71. Hey Savi and Vid,

    Here’s the link to the article where I have mentioned your website – http://www.womensweb.in/2016/09/breaking-the-myths-about-travellers/.

    Happy and safe travels !

    • Thanks a lot for including us Sonali 🙂

  72. You guys are inspirational for every backpacker.Love you guys.

    • Thanks a ton Ebin 🙂

  73. Hey,
    I’m a designer based out of New Delhi. Looked into the blog, you guys have got strong content. Would you like me to re-design your blog site?
    Do let me know.
    Thanks. (:

    • Hey Anshu – thanks for your note. We’re not looking for any new team members at the minute but will definitely get in touch if that changes 🙂

  74. Hello Savi and Ved

    We (me and my wife) love your website and follow it like a hawk for travel and fashion inspiration. We are embarking on an Antarctica expedition in next 2 weeks and would love to work with you guys. We want to showcase the beauty of the 7th continent on a medium which will be easily related by the audience and we can learn a thing or two from you. We are in New York and recently tried to meet you guys (but our calendars were not aligned :(…..)..

    Cheers
    Hardik and Ekta

    • Hey Hardik,

  75. Hi, I just love to travel, and lately i have been following you guys on social media. I am just back from my one month vacation to the US. Though i couldn’t explore too much as you guys do since you are a couple. I traveled alone to the US and Australia. But yes once i have my partner in crime with me would love to do road trips across the world as you guys.

    God bless you guys, hoping one day i too shall start on my across the world journey with my partner and share it with you guys.

    Take Care
    Love,
    Kanika

    • Hey Kanika,

      Thanks for your message 🙂 Yes, please share your journeys with us:)

      Much love
      Savi and Vid

  76. Hi Savi and Vid,

    Hope you guys are doing good. I have come across your blog through one of my friend. I would love to follow your blog for all the travels. Could you please suggest me some place to visit in Europe during May this year?

    Waiting for your reply.

    Thank you very much.

    Cheers,
    Supriya

    • Hi Supriya,

      To be honest, all places in Europe have a charm of their own so you wouldn’t really go wrong in picking any. We’d suggest Iceland or Croatia 🙂

      Cheers
