Ever heard of a “YOUNG WOMAN TRAVELER from INDIA exploring the world on HER OWN for more than a YEAR.”

Well! That’s me!! A big Hello! My name is Leena Bansal aka Miss Walking Shoes. I quit my job in April 2014 and since then I am on the journey of my life. I have travelled to 32 countries across three continents since then, covering some 79,827 kilometres (49604 miles) which is roughly equivalent to circling the Earth twice! All this on budget and using minimum air transport.

I made my dream of a solo tryst around the globe come true despite an Indian Passport and currency constraints. If you are interested in reading about all my travel stories and want to know the tricks and tips for world travel, this page is for you. Hope to see you here often. 🙂
