This Tea Seller, Who Has Travelled To 17 Countries, Will Inspire You To Pack Your Bags

Updated on 28 August, 2018 at 4:52 pm By

If a tea-seller can become a PM, can’t a tea-seller go on a world tour?

Vijayan owns a tea-stall in Kochi but his ambitions broke him free from the chains the small Kerala city bound him to and took him to 17 countries of the world.

The 65-year-old and his wife, Mohana, have toured every tourist location in India and have visited countries such as Egypt, Britain, France, Austria and the US.

His wife enjoys travelling as much as Vijayan. Her favourite is Switzerland.

The travelling bug bit him when he went to a tour of all temples in Kerala with his father. But his father’s untimely death brought on his shoulders the responsibility of the entire household.

In 1988 he resumed travelling when he accompanied a man as his cook on a pilgrimage to the Himalayas.

And do you know that his tea stall is his only source of income?

Vijayan takes bank loans to raise the required amount for travelling. The couple then travel to their chosen destination and upon return, spend the next three years repaying the debt.

He saves Rs.300 per day for tickets from the income from his tea stall, and spends a maximum of 10 dollars to buy some souvenirs.



His philosophy is what has kept him going:
