Quantified self – My travels


For the first twenty-five years of my life, i wanted to travel but couldn’t. Later in the last eight years, i did went to places wherever and whenever possible. I just thought of compiling the places where i have lived and travelled over the years. Here is the list.

Places where i lived

  • Chennai,India – More than 25 years
  • Raichur, India – 2 years
  • Mangalore, India – 2 1/2 years
  • Sangatta, Indonesia – 8 months
  • Damanjodi, India – 3 months

Data collection is the first step in any process. Even places where you travel can be compiled into something as i have grouped below which helps to quantify.

Places where i travelled


  • Borra caves, Vishakapatinam, India
  • Belum caves, Andhra, India
  • Nellitheerta cave temple, Mangalore, India

  • Edakkal caves, India
  • Varaha caves, India

  • Haridwar, India
  • Bhopal, India
  • Jakarta, Indonesia,
  • Balikpapan, Indonesia
  • Samarinda, Indonesia
  • Jogjakarta, Indonesia,

As i start typing i got more ideas for classifications of places even depending on activities i have carried out. I would have been to a place where i would have done adventure sports, have seen a water fall, relaxed at a beach, trekked a hill, safaried in a forest. So the method of presentation of lists only helps to boast that I have travelled quite a few places over the years. It is not appealing for the readers, not inspiring for anybody who is travelling. After all experiences are real treasures. Then why count places. The reasons are many. See you in next post with better presenting methods.
