I am Hridya, the owner of this blog. Living in India till my 25th year, my parents, brother and I have covered quite a few places inside of India. This continued after I got married and seems like we are Sadaa Sancharis – people who keep moving from one place to another, all our lives. After my wedding, I moved to Malaysia, East Malaysia (Miri) to be precise in 2009 and it opened up a whole lot of opportunities to explore the region.

After 2011, we have been joined by our little girl who is an enthusiastic travel addict and we have great fun exploring and visiting places in this region.

In this blog, you can get to read about the various places we have been to in Asia. The focus will be more towards family-friendly and kid-friendly activities. We have entered our 8th year in Malaysia and loving every bit of it. So if you have any queries about moving to Malaysia, education, work, lifestyle – leave me a message!

After spending nearly 9 years outside India, I have returned to my motherland. This blog will now start focusing on places of interest, family travel inside India. I am more than excited to show India to my little one and you will be reading a lot about it in the coming days. Ours is a huge country and there will be a lot to cover in this lifetime. So stay tuned!

Why is the blog called Coins N Maps?

Well, at the end of each trip we do, we are left with loads of memories, and lots of coins, currency notes and maps of the country/city we have visited. So, when I look at my “souvenirs” that we have collected over the years of our trips, I would like to say that the coins and the maps are also a kind of souvenir for me. Would you not agree with me?

I would love to hear from you, comments, opinions, tips on how we can improve our site. A few good words would boost me up too! 😉 Feel free to Email me at [email protected]

Do you want me to help you plan a trip or are you wondering how difficult or easy it would be to make a transition to South East Asia? Write in! Or contact me on social media: Facebook; Twitter; Instagram; Pinterest.


Looking to hear from you soon! Happy travels!
