zobuwave1Hi! I am Zobu and I have a simple philosophy. This world is so big, and there’s so much to experience. You get only one life, so you need to Live It. Now.

I am living mine by traveling and I hangout at Zostel during all my adventures. They claim to be India’s first super-awesome-cool backpacker hostel chain, and since they’ve paid me to blabber about them, you need to listen to me.

They are the base camp for people like us who hate to spend time in the boring 5-Star Hotel rooms – watching TV and drinking that overpriced Coffee. People who would kill their fat balding bosses to have that chilling fun time with friends and those who love to meet new people. After all, who knows when and where you may run into your ‘Special One’ ;) They offer youth-focused, centrally-located, world class accommodation facility that hits you immediately but doesn’t hit your pocket (In short, they are awesome).  Currently you’ll find these guys in Jaipur and Jodhpur, but very soon they’ll be everywhere – and I am waiting for that day. The day, when we all can  travel much more, much longer and much frequently.

That’s about it. So, if you would like to touch and feel the real India while having some serious fun, I can promise you that  Zostel would be a never-before experience – an experience to cherish. So, lets come together and plan on how to take revenge from that evil fat balding boss >:)

See you soon :)
