Travel in the time of Corona (Episode #1)

Socially distanced from the world of travel, Maneesha turns to her brother, Krishna, for a tête-à-tête. She opens up about her experience running a 4-room boutique hotel and a bespoke travel company amidst changing travel restrictions. They discuss what her clients went through, how her home state of Kerala beat Covid, and how her business is coping. Krishna teases Maneesha, a compulsive doer, about how she is embracing slowness and uncertainty. He gets her to talk about ways she is reimagining travel through India for her global clients. If you are an entrepreneur in the travel space, or if you're a traveller wondering when you can pack your bags again, listen in. Maneesha is the founder of Silk Route Escapes, an experiential travel company that offers travellers a glimpse into the soul of India. She has travelled the length and breadth of this ancient nation to handpick experiences that bring you closer to India’s culture, its people and its many moods. Maneesha is a former New Yorker who knows the heart of an avid traveller. Silk Route reflects her curious spirit. Maneesha’s latest project is Kayal, an Island Retreat in the backwaters of Kerala. At Kakkathuruthu, she has built an intimate 4-cottage resort where fisherfolk and farmers share their life with guests. Though not far from the ancient port city of Kochi, the island, connected only by traditional rowboats, is off the maddening rush of modernity. Rated amongst the Best 24 Hours on Earth and 12 Incredible Boutique Hotels in India, Kayal is ideal for the experience seeker. Krishna (@krishnapanicker) is based in Dubai and handles business development for a large auditing firm. He likes psychology, film making and editing. He is also an avid meditator. Follow us at: www.instagram.com/silkrouteescapes www.instagram.com/kayalislandretreat Find us on the web: https://silkrouteescapes.comhttps://www.kayalislandretreat.com
