Traveller and content creator Larissa D’sa has been on the move for years, accumulating multiple memories along the way. During her times of lockdown, the TedX speaker recounts one such trip to Portugal with her partner, Siddharth Kerkar. She reveals that although it’s been over 100 days since they embarked on the vacation together, it’s the subsequent memories that spring out of these travels that keep her wanderlust satiated even when indoors. These ‘souvenirs’ – while intangible – have the beauty of sticking with you forever. Despite falling in love with the art and architecture of Lisbon, it’s the meals they cooked together and moments shared while grocery shopping in foreign lands that continue to linger in her mind even today. To her, travelling with Kerkar doubled as a calming tonic while simultaneously helping her combat her fears. After all, isn’t that one of the many joys of travelling?
