AN INTERVIEW WITH REVATI & CHARLES
Which was the most unforgettable day in your life? And why?
I believe it was our first trip to Europe that changed things for us. The first time was saw Paris, was like nothing we'd imagined, the stunning Haussmanian architecture, the surprisingly friendly French people, the centuries old culture coexisting with the modern, the mind blowing museums, the crisp December weather, even the way the sunlight illuminated our photos, that was the day travel really opened our eyes, and we knew we were hooked forever.
How did blogging attract you?
We used to blog sporadically about random musics, home decor and recipes that we'd try on our old blog. And then one day Charles began editing photographs from our trip to Paris and decided to put them up someplace considering all the effort he went into, he then added a few tid bits of information that may help other travellers (like he was already doing on the TripAdvisor forums) and that's how Different Doors was born.
What is your blog/ website about?
This is not a regular travel guide blog. Neither is it a travelogue. There are enough people around the world who travel and write about their experiences. We’re the ones who open different doors. What are different doors? Unique experiences we've dug out with a lot of effort. New ways of discovering even the most popular and mainstream of destinations. After all isn't that why we travel? To open different doors?
What inspired you to explore the world and how?
Food and Photography have always been two massive passions with us. Charles also enjoys reading a lot of history, while I (Revati) love anything to do with France. The one thing that combined all our interests and took it to another level was travel.
Mention any three tourist places that you loved the most and why?
From the more mainstream places frequented by tourists that we've visited we definitely loved these: Paris for its uncanny way of surprising you with its sheer elegance around every corner, Barcelona for its creativity and vibrancy, Melbourne for its gastronomy and friendliness.
Which is your FAVORITE cuisine? Why?
Internationally the Catalan cuisine we found in Barcelona completely blew our minds. From the tiniest tapas and pinxto joints to the fanciest molecular gastronomy restaurants the cuisine is innovative, honest and heartwarmingly delicious. That being said, back here we love the cuisine of Kerala.
