My name is Candida Louis, I am 28 years old and from Hubli, South India. A Wanderlust spirit and a craving for adventure is something I was born with and as far as I can remember I started of really young, going on rides with my dad, I’ve been riding for 12 years now. I started as a pillion rider but I always knew I wanted to be on the front seat. He gifted me a motorcycle on one of my birthdays and from then onwards, it’s been an incredible journey. I’ve always had a passion for riding motorcycles, coz it gave me the freedom and independence to go anywhere that’s when the travel bug got to me and ever since then I’ve been dreaming of riding around the World.
I grew up in Hubli. I shifted to a bigger city(Bangalore) for work. Working for 5 years at Oracle and Infosys, while commuting in traffic every day for a minimum of 2 hours and long work hours, was not for me… I would look out the office window every day and dream to be riding around the World. I never knew when or how, but I just believed.
In 2015, I took a sabbatical of three months and rode through North and South India. After I got a taste of the freedom, confidence, and independence that being on a bike offered me, I knew I could never go back to a desk job. I came back, resigned, served the notice period and then went back on the road for four months.
