In this episode, Chuck and Naren talk to Utsav Mamoria, who makes his third appearance (!) on the show. The last time, he spoke about how he was preparing for a 3-month sabbatical (Episode 85) - this time, he's back and is ready to share his experiences, stories and most importantly - tips for those who want to travel on a budget. A desi budget. Utsav finished an enviable itinerary at a cost you won't believe. He is hard at work on his travel book, as well - make sure you check it out later in the year. We talk about budgeting for flights, stay, food, sightseeing and more. This is less 'Simblification' and more 'chat with a person very passionate about travel'. He also slips in some beautiful stories, and evangelizes slow travel, as opposed to trying to check off as many items as possible in a day.

NEW TO SIMBLIFIED?
It's an Indian podcast - probably the best to come from Malad West - that takes things that happen around us, and deconstructs them in a language you can understand, often surmounting several puns and PG Wodehouse references along the way. We aim to make you appear smarter during parties, job interviews, and dates.
