About Ranajay Das

Hi! My name is Ranajay Das and welcome to my website, Ranajay On The Road!

At the beginning of 2019, I quit my high paying job as an automation engineer in the pharmaceuticals industry, sold or donated over 90% of my belongings and set off to travel the world with just a backpack and a hand-drum.

If you would like to know more about why I chose this life, be sure to read my post:

Why I Quit My Engineering Job To Travel The World in 2019

In the grander scheme of things, we’re all on the road to somewhere, and that’s why I chose the name Ranajay On The Road (it also helps that it’s alliterative). Even though the primary focus of this website is travel, you’ll also find articles on life and following the path to your dreams.

So, stick around and follow me on Facebook and Instagram for the latest stories from around the world. I’ll try to add a live map of my travels so that you know where I am. And if I’m in your hood, come say hi!

Until then, see you on the road!
