We are back with another post from our trip to Seychelles in Nov’19 (2/6):Located in Mont Fleuri, on the outskirts of Victoria, the Botanical Garden is one of Seychelles’ oldest National Monuments, dating back more than a century. It has a wide collection of mature, exotic and endemic plants within five acres of landscaped and beautifully maintained tropical gardens. Apart from these, we suggest the following attractions at the garden: (1) Coco de mer alley: The first thing to greet you as you enter the garden is the sight of the biggest nut in the world — the coco de mer. it is the most iconic endemic plant in Seychelles. (2) Giant Tortoise: The Aldabra Giant Tortoise (Aldabrachelys gigantea), one of the largest tortoise species on Earth, is endemic to the Aldabra atoll, Seychelles & some of them are as old as 150 years of age. Visiting Hours; 8am to 5pm Entry Fee: SCR100/person (SCR stands for Seychelles Rupee also known as Seychellois rupee) Edited by: @framefameproductions #botanicalgarden #wildlifephoto #wildlifeonearth #nature_perfection #naturephotography #naturepic #touristattraction #touristythings #touristlife #touristguide #travelvibes #travelblogger #travelforlife #travelmemories #travelcouples #travelbloggerlife #honeymoontravel #honeymoonphotography #honeymoondestination #gianttortoise #coupleshoot #hubbyandwifey #fashionist #igtraveller #lifeunwind
Take a look at our conversation with Arushi & Chirag Kalra from Lifeunwind
What made you start creating content and when did you begin?
“Being true foodies, we started “lifeunwind” as a food blog and loved exploring the industry by being up for trying new dishes, drinks etc. We always had this fondness of clicking before we actually went onto savouring the dish. It was in 2016, after returning from New Zealand that our friends asked us to come up with a separate page for all our food shots. Since then, we’ve been following our passion and decided to share the plethora of experiences that various places across the world have to offer- be it food, travel, or lifestyle.”
What makes your content stand out?
“It’s been 3 years now since we started this blog, henceforth we understand what our audience likes to see and we create content keeping that in mind. Whenever we are promoting a brand, we keep it simple and concise along with ensuring that we focus on its true benefits and facts.”
How do you choose what to promote on your feed and what not to?
“It’s according to what is trending and which is up-to-date, marketable, non-redundant and what may be deemed interesting to our followers; thinking that had we been a follower of our account, hypothetically, what would we like to see. Also over time, following our engagements, we know what kind of post might get a good response.”
One instance/experience that made it all worthwhile?
“When we went to a school to deliver a small workshop on influencer marketing, some students instantly recognized and had already seen the blog. That was overwhelming and made it all seem worthwhile at the moment.”
What does a regular day look like?
“We recently got married, so have a lot happening as of now. Apart from that, we have a regular work life, one being into exports and one being a social media strategist.”
How do you make moolahs?
“Saying no to free collaborations in the name of barter. Experience over the years helped concerning this. If you are good at something, never do it for free.”

Where do you get ideas for your videos from?
“We see a lot of YouTube videos, movies and web series, some ideas sprang up from there and some were based on real-life experiences, like random quick thinking.”
Weirdest brief ever received?
“A random e-mail as well as a text from a newly founded app saying you inspire us, why don’t you feature us? Weird.”
If not an influencer, what would you be?
“As mentioned earlier, one of us is into exports and one is a social media strategist. We already have secondary careers.”
Message/tips for upcoming bloggers
“Be original and confident in what you create.”
