Today in Kochi, I came across a regular tea shop to get some Indian chai (my favorite drink here!) The tea shop, Sree Balaji, is owned by a lovely couple in 70s -- Vijayan and Mohana. After speaking with them for about 30 minutes, I was in awe by their inspiring life story. Vijayan and his wife both shared a common dream to travel the world, but money was always an issue. So 55 years ago, Vijayan took up selling tea on the streets of Kochi. They saved 300 Rupees ($4.20) every day for decades, and they used this income (together with bank loans) to fund travels to 23 countries! From Switzerland to Brazil to the USA, they don't plan on stopping anytime soon. Vijayan and Mohana are a perfect couple who is living the happiest life that anyone can live. I am so happy that I dropped by their tea shop today, and I wish them the best of luck in their future travels! Follow Drew Binsky for daily travel videos. Instagram @drewbinsky. Thanks Michael (IG @affinityadventure) for the edits. P.S. If you come to Kochi, they would really appreciate any support to help them fulfill their upcoming travels. Their shop is located off Katrikadavu Road. Thanks!
