Kensington Tours is proud to introduce our newest Explorer in Residence, Mariellen Ward
Writer and spiritual adventurer Mariellen Ward became an expert on the culture, cuisine, religions and history of India after spending 17 months touring solo across the breadth of the subcontinent.
In the land she calls her “soul culture,” Mariellen has been blessed by the waters of Ganga during the Kumbh Mela, felt the power of the desert in Rajasthan while on camel safari, practiced yoga at ashrams, greeted dawn at Kanyakumari, the southern tip of India, visited the Taj Mahal during a full moon and watched the colors of sunrise splash against the vast, white Himalayan range.
Mariellen chronicles her travel experiences in India and other parts of the world on her award winning website Breathedreamgo.com, which is syndicated by the Times of India. She has been featured on several travel websites including Matador Network and TravelWireAsia.com, and in 2010 she published her first book, Song of India: Tales of Travel and Transformation.
Mariellen is the founder of #WeGoSolo, a growing movement to encourage female solo travel. She is Kensington Tours’ first female Explorer in Residence.
Kensington Tours is proud to have Mariellen leading a symbolic and cultural expedition in northern India in October 2014. The tour follows in the footsteps of mystical Rajasthani princess Mirabai, who cast the domestic pressures of society aside to follow her spiritual yearnings and creative dreams.
