In a bold move that echoes the spirit of chasing one's dreams, Khyati Thaker, once a lawyer in the city of Mumbai, made the remarkable decision to bid farewell to her legal career and dive headfirst into the world of travel "itinerary curation" and "blogging". This is the extraordinary tale of her transformation and her venture "A Lawyer's Voyage" (ALV).
After a decade of working in the corporate world, Khyati realised that she needed a change that would be more in line with her true self. "I wanted to explore new opportunities that would bring me a sense of fulfilment and happiness every day, rather than feeling exhausted by the demands of a corporate job!" She reflects on the pivotal moment that sparked her journey.
The odyssey began in late 2018 when Khyati casually shared her travel escapades on Instagram and crafted itineraries for close friends and family. Little did she know that these humble beginnings would uncover her genuine passion and ignite a newfound happiness.

Early in 2019, Khyati delved into the world of travel blogging. She dedicated herself to learning the ropes, taking numerous online courses to refine her skills. However, she remained open to the possibility of returning to law or a corporate job if the creative space didn't bring her joy.
Fast forward to 2024, and Khyati's venture, "A Lawyer's Voyage," boasts a thriving community with 10,000 avid readers on her blog and an impressive 30,000+ strong following on Instagram. Having explored 23+ countries until now, it was natural for Khyati's venture, ALV, to offer professional consultancy and craft personalised itineraries for fellow travellers. Khyati says she loves to weave her experiences and learnings into those itineraries.
Despite the challenges that come with living a full-time travel lifestyle, Khyati remains determined in her choice and appreciates the unwavering support of her partner. She believes that every journey is unique, with its own merits and demerits. She says, "Embrace your path and trust the journey because it's leading you to where you're meant to be", she quips, radiating a contagious optimism.

ALV has expansion plans in the pipeline, but Khyati is taking a measured approach, proceeding one step at a time.
Beyond the hustle and bustle of her professional life, Khyati finds solace in devouring entire books in a single sitting, relishing movies, and gracefully blending in on the dance floor. Her philosophy is simple yet profound: "Life's too short not to enjoy every little moment, right?"
Khyati Thaker's story serves as a beacon of inspiration for those contemplating a leap of faith into the unknown, proving that life's most incredible adventures often begin when you dare to pursue your passion.
