Alok Bhartia – The Traveler

About Alok Bhartia

Alok Bhartia is a creator of decisions, artistic thoughts and delicious Spaghetti Bolognese. The decisions usually have his brain engage in a tough tug-o-war between an exotic cuisine and an outlandish adventure. You’ll find this gourmet-cum-adventurer mostly in Paris. He loves exploring the cuisine-Français in the city of amour.

He was born in Kolkata on 27 October, 1987. As a child, he realized that he was meant to follow his heart rather than pick up a white-collar job and then retiring a sad old man. Alok Bhartia started his schooling from Kendriya Vidyalaya Fort William. He attended the University of Calcutta for his bachelor’s degree in Journalism and Mass Communication. Following his dream to live the adventurous life, Alok Bhartia rebelled against the popular establishment of “go get a job when you’re done studying”. His love for food also prompted him to open various restaurants around the country.

When it all began

Osho once said: “There’s no greater ecstasy than to know who you are”. These magical words inspired Alok Bhartia to discover his true identity and destroy his notion of ‘I’. It’s why this website is rendered more in third-person. Taking baby steps towards his mental liberation, Alok took a trip to the Mansarovar Lake. Mount Kailash was dressed in an orange robe gifted by the Sun. The scenic beauty made him wish for more of such examples where Mother Earth blesses the senses. It’s in the mountain lake where Alok Bhartia realized his love for travel and penchant for trips of self-discovery.


Alok Bhartia has been to three different continents, six countries and has discovered over 16 different cuisines. He aims to cover the entire globe and be known as an actual ‘globetrotter’ rather than conform to the overused term of ‘wanderlust’ that travel writers use.

Have fun on the site!
