Bonhomie on the move

BENGALURU

Roadtrip Experience Project brings together stuff what dreams are ideally made up of. An idea put to implementation last year by the Bengaluru based techie Jay Ahya and four others from Mumbai and New Delhi; their desire to bridge together people belonging to radically different professions in one mad travel experience that promises to bond them like never before is now a reality.

Among the travellers you are bound to find a passionate bunch of artists, musicians, designers, filmmakers, photographers who will also be collaborating with region-specific personalities and locals for a series of artsy projects in a matter of 12 days. Sounds exciting? There’s more to it. While the five-member RTX team were North-India bound, enroute to their journey to the Himalayas and the areas in its vicinity last yearwhere they zeroed in on 27 profiles of the travellers out of the 150-odd applications received for the trip, this year’s project will have them heading the heart of the North-East regions, into the alluring natural riches of Nagaland, Assam and Meghalaya.

“I’d pounced on this, after I heard of a collaboration of artists in Delhi teaming up for a project. So, I wondered, how interesting would it be to bring people who know nothing about each other from different parts of the country and the world to join the trip. Although you do make newer friends, realise your identity as you travel, the bond that nurtures when you team up with literal strangers for a project is on another level altogether,” states Jay.
