WORK WITH ME
More about me
I’m a Business Analyst with more than 8 years of experience. I’ve worked in diverse domains such as Banking and Finance, Sports, Charity, Travel, Airlines to name a few. In addition to working in tech, I am also involved in research, analysis and documentation. I have sound knowledge of concepts and processes in Agile, UX, SEO and Analytics.
While I’m passionate about my role in tech, I’m equally passionate about travel, discovering new cultures and food.
I amalgamated these two to create ‘Continent Hop’ in mid-2015 (previously ‘ A Capricious Compass’ ) a visually striking space to persuade professionals to travel more, even while handling a non-nomadic job and family commitments. Continent Hop has been about encouraging the working class to invest in travel. Too often it’s the ones that work the most, who feel the need to get away from it all and love to travel, yet shy away from it due to time constraints.
I’ve explored more than 45 countries, sometimes with the partner Ajay, sometimes solo. I’ve chased fireflies and mapped constellations in a remote mangrove in the Philippines, cried in awe at the patterns the Northern Lights created, hiked the Alps, camped in the Sahara and written itineraries for it on the blog.
Why collaborate with Continent Hop
Continent Hop is about the people we meet along the way, perceptions and stories peppered with lots of tips, hacks and stunning pictures taken by me and Ajay. Continent Hop is about fast travel, unique experiences and food.
While professionals make the core of my readers, Continent Hop is equally exciting for the next generation of wanderers who dream to head out and explore the world.
Getting a job, buying a house and a car is no longer the norm. People are now investing in themselves. There’s more disposable income, that people are willing to invest in experiences that bring everlasting memories and happiness. To get the maximum out of their investment, people are looking for personal narratives, endorsements and pictures. Traditional media gets outdated. People need first-hand info at their fingertips from content creators like us, that they trust and share a connection with. That they can access at their fingertips for eternity.
When collaborating with ‘Continent Hop’ you’re not only working with a blogger with a large active following but also one who uses her background to understand what a business needs and creates compelling content to serve those purposes. As a team who works in tech, we understand the important of SEO, storytelling, targeting Facebook ads & changing trends in the internet industry.
During the last 4 years my humble blog has been nominated multiple times for awards, reached tens of thousands of readers and I’ve been featured and contributed to publications like The Huffington Post, Elite Daily, to name a few. There’s also a possibility that destinations get added coverage in the publications I write, if it fits the needs of an upcoming article.
If you are a company looking to generate interest, attract new audiences, increase sales, rank higher, improve visibility, awareness & reputation, we can certainly help. We can make you stand out. You can always expect readers to be hooked and make bookings & purchases based on recommendations on the blog.
We ensure genuine quality. Comments on social media channels or posts are not generated through comment exchange threads but genuinely interested readers and followers.
We’ve worked with numerous tourism boards, offbeat hotels and fashion brands to create compelling and engaging content. I pride myself on creating quality content for brands with well-researched and first-hand information that goes hand-in-hand with dreamy photography & design and building trusted relationships with my readers.
I’m sure you’d you’d like to be a part of Continent Hop to make that happen!

“I worked with Lavina on a press trip to Ghent in 2017. Lavina was incredibly professional throughout, going above and beyond what was expected and providing detailed reporting after the campaign.
