We had a chat with Sangeeta Sharma, cabin crew at Qatar airways from Manipur. We’re delighted to have her tell us about why people should travel and her top travel tips!
Hi Sangeeta! Introduce a little about yourself and tell us what travelling means to you.
My name is Sangeeta Sharma, 23-years-old from Manipur. I’m currently staying in Doha, working at Qatar airways as a cabin crew. The very purpose of my working as a cabin crew is my love for travelling. My work gives me an opportunity to travel around the world and meet people from different places. Each time I visit a new place, it inspires me to appreciate life better and makes me understand the meaning of life.
How do you decide or plan your upcoming trips?
Before I decided to travel to a new place, first I try to understand the historical importance of that place, look up in the internet for the top visiting tourist-spots, the restaurants and it’s local cuisine. I love to learn new things and the culture of the places I travel to.

Why do you think people should travel?
People should travel to broaden their horizon, learn new culture, ideas and traditions, to get inspired by the diversities of the world, to enhance knowledge and most importantly to appreciate life. We discover ourself when we are lost in the beauty of nature.
