“I wish I could do that”, “I really wanted to do that but then I didn’t have time”, “Oh damn! That is so good, glad you could take out time to do that”, “I know I am good at it but I don’t have time to do this”, “I wish someone would have encouraged me back then”.
Do these phrases sound familiar? You must have used these at some point of time or the other. Well, our major encounter with these phrases happened in April 2016 in a very random and casual dinner table conversation. The use of these phrases that night led us into a discussion about the fact that how one is not able to pursue their interests or hobbies these days due to busy work life, family responsibilities and the entry of many gadgets into our life. At this point, we felt that something needs to be done for ourselves and the people around in order to reconnect them with their interests and hobbies or help them find some hidden talent within themselves that they may want to pursue in their lives ahead. The next step at that point for us was to find a way to do so. We racked our brains further and after a while it struck to us that other than spending time on their hobbies, travel is something that almost everyone loves to do. However, occupied one is, they do manage to take out some time for travel. This is when we decided that we will use travel as a medium to reconnect people with their interests. This is how the concept of TravelTroovel developed and thereafter we started taking baby steps towards its further planning and execution. It was on the 20th August, that we officially launched it.
TravelTroovel aims at reconnecting people with their hobbies and also help them cultivate new ones. To do this, we offer different kinds of hobby experiences – Hobby Trips (Hobbycations) and Hobby Sessions within the city. By being a part of our experiences, one gets to explore and spend time with their hobbies with a touch of freshness by indulging in different sessions and activities.

'Out of the world' is the word! Honestly,my experience was even better than what I had expected. Travel troovel is actually one of its kind. Each and every single thing was beautifully managed. You guys didn't leave a chance to make the trip worth it! Thank you so much Travel troovel for giving be such a beautiful experience and bundle of memories! Keep up the good work!!!
I can happily call myself a trooveler now. I have been to a lot of Konkan trips, but without doubt I can say that this was the best Konkan trip I have ever been to. As the theme says, music was the life of this trip and yes, I am going to learn the guitar now. Thank you Apurav and Diwan for the inspiration. Guhaghar has one of the cleanest beaches around and the selection of this beach was epic max. We actually spent 2 hours daily in the sea. That is #kaafi more that the actual standards. The food also was amazing. Fish of course was out of this world. Raju dada and maushi - best hosts. Best chefs and always ready to help with any thing asked for. Finally special thanks to the organisers who are now friends. Superb arrangements, activities and games. Who would have thought early morning meditation would be this much fun! And the bunch of people around made this trip more enjoyable. Thank you guys for giving Konkan a new dimension. Looking forward to much more of this.
Had a superb time in the Doodle art event. The group is lead by enthusiasts and friendly people. Arunima was super helpful in answering all the queries. Looking forward to attend more events�

It was not just a trip but a memory full of love, magic and friendship. You guys are team leaders not just organizers! <3
Flawlessly organised trip! I commend the Travel Troovel team for the efforts they put into every little detail and how comfortable they made everyone right from the start. In keeping with the theme of the trip, we were provided with all the luxuries a bookworm would be lucky to have: books, mountains and plenty of sunshine
#MusicWallaTravelTroovel undoubtedly the best experience so far. The company of you guys, the whole set of activities we had, have been so ecstatic. Thank-you for having me on this trip. Looking forward for another #MountainsCalling trip with you guys. All the best, cheers!!
