Please do let me know whether you would be interested to speak to Sujal and Medha on their being one of the first to bring road trips to the travel community, how they planned this trip and the way ahead.
About the force behind Embarq:
Medha Joseph: Equipped with a keen financial acumen and an astute sense of route planning, Medha is pivotal in bringing all our travel ideas to life. Travelling is her raison d’être and she was instrumental in conceptualizing and planning a self-drive expedition covering 15 countries in 57 days from India to Morocco via China, Central Asia, Russia and Europe with five other friends, including Embarq’s other co-founder, Sujal Patwardhan. Medha drives a Toyota Land Cruiser and likes to explore places off the beaten track. Before making travel her full-time career, she worked as a finance professional for 11 years for world renowned companies Mercedes-Benz, General Electric and Infosys. When she is not travelling, you will find Medha immersed in a David Baldacci book or painting a canvas.
Sujal Patwardhan: A multi-tasker, troubleshooter and a people person, Sujal is an expert in organising events and managing teams. Her true passion though, lies in exploring the world on wheels. She has been on road trips in India, US, Spain and Turkey. She undertook a massive inter-continental journey of 23,000 km along with five other friends, including Medha. Starting from India, they drove for 57 days across 15 countries and three continents to reach their destination – Morocco!
Travelling is in her blood and she has now made it her profession. Prior to co-founding Embarq, she was the Vice President at a Mumbai based investment bank, Ambit Holdings and has worked in the field of Human Resources for 14 years for companies like Lehman Brothers and Infosys. Apart from driving, Sujal’s hobbies include ‘Bollywood’ and ‘biryani’ and she has an enviable collection of wristwatches.
