Tale of 2 Backpackers

Welcome to the world of Agni & Amrita. Driven by our curiosity and not losing our sense of wonder, we travel, learn, observe and celebrate life. We believe in the magnanimity of nature and the goodness of people and with this belief we embark on the life of adventure and travel together. Through our tales, we would like to connect with others and exchange life experiences. We hope you will join us in the journey.
