A hashtag can take you to a new country. If you’re as smart as Telugu traveler Tanniru Shravan, you can even enjoy Serbia for a week at ₹1,000, all-inclusive. This May, Shravan chose the 30th country from his travel bucket list. “The hashtag #SerbiaTelugu on Instagram connected me with a Telugu gentleman who also picked me up from Belgrade airport. Through him and the Couchsurfing app, I met Alex T, who not only hosted me, but also cooked Serbian food like Juvec rice for me in his kitchen,” Shravan recalled about his visit last December. This veteran vacationer swears by the travel tools and hacks that enable her to travel to a new country almost every two months on a budget.

Shravan is not a travel blogger who takes freebies from brands. A native of Sri Kalahasti, Andhra Pradesh, he is a techie currently residing in Swindon, UK. He moved to the UK in November 2013 and has been on the run since then. He has been recording his travelogues on his YouTube channel Travel with Shravan.

What’s the science behind smart vacations? How does one decide where to travel next? “Inexpensive flight tickets or special events like the La Tomatina festival in August in Spain, the tulip blooms in May in Amsterdam, and New Year’s fireworks in London determine my destination and dates. chose Serbia in December. it occurs.”

Serbia is special for the 32-year-old travel lover as it was his 25th country to visit and the 80th flight he had made in his life. “I didn’t know anyone in Serbia, but after five days there, I made friends in Serbia, Russia, Indonesia, Turkey and Dubai. They all promised to be my hosts in their respective countries,” he says. Huh.

But, there is no such thing as a free lunch. Surely, he needs to buy a gift or souvenir as a thank you gift when he goes? “It’s a myth that everything costs money. Human connections and services matter. There have been occasions when I cooked Indian food for my foreign hosts, cleaned their house, or taught them video editing skills. These were enough to win him over and let me be his guest,” he shared.

Shravan is also the brand ambassador of Couchsurfing. Couchsurfing provides a platform to connect with locals in every part of the world. This allows him to build a travel support community. “It’s like renting out your house on Airbnb, but it’s free and we exchange information about our cultures and interests. The rest is up to you.”

If you like to experiment with local street food, you can travel comfortably, he says. “Plan well and for between Rs 1,000 and Rs 10,000, you can be sure to manage your accommodation, food and transportation in over 100 countries,” he assures. This June, Shravan is en route to the Rathlin West Light Seabird Colony in Northern Ireland, where he is excited to meet puffins, guillemots and razorbills. “From hacks to hashtags, the journey begins,” he concluded, ready to go back to his packing.
