As per a famous saying,
“We travel, some of us forever, to seek other places, other lives, other souls.”
Every sigh at a sight, every smile in a picture, every finger that points and every silencing moment. Every giggle that escaped, every heart that melted, every lump in the throat and every bear-hug that refused to go. Every strip of ticket and every stamp on the passport entail a story. No wonder Traveling does leave you speechless for that moment and eventually turns you into a storyteller. It is this nature of travelling that inspired Monish Shah to create TraveLibro.
Founded in 2014, TraveLibro is a travel social networking portal which aims to create a travel eco system to connect travellers with fellow travellers, bloggers, travel agents, on-line travel agents and other industry partners. TraveLibro is the brain child of Monish Shah, a travel aficionado and a former investment banker and Malhar Gala, a serial entrepreneur. Monish was an investment banker for 8 years at Deutsche Bank before starting TraveLibro and Malhar has a background in the jewellery and fashion industry.
