Asmita Sood: I’m a travel addict! – Times of India


For someone who loves to travel every chance she gets, actress Asmita Sood had a fun break in Azerbaijan and Georgia, recently. She talks about how it came about. “I had a film shoot in Azerbaijan and I had always wanted to visit Georgia since a while. This time fortunately, Azerbaijan and Georgia turned out to be neighbouring countries, so I was excited as this was an opportunity for me to go see them. I went to Azerbaijan first and then extended the trip to Georgia,” she says.

Out and about in a
beautiful, friendly country

Asmita says this made for a much-needed break. “I like to take time off at least twice a year and yes, this was much-needed break in between my hectic shoot schedule in Mumbai.” Several elements added towards making it a pleasant holiday. “The locals in Azerbaijan are very friendly and helpful and I loved the people there,” she says, adding, “Georgians, I think, are still recovering from the Soviet influence that the country has been under for years. But otherwise, the country is beautiful and has some breathtaking cathedrals, each one telling a unique story!”

Trying out unique sweets and savouries

Along with the sightseeing, the food and drink was the highlight. She informs, “Georgia is known for wines and cheese. I tried a variety of these. There is also a special dumpling they prepare called the ‘
khinkhali’, which has a particular technique of eating. I tried that as well as their famous (almost national) dish called ‘
khachapudi’. They also have a unique sweet called ‘
churchkela’, which is stringed nuts dipped in thickened grape juice; it’s delicious. I guess they have a huge variety of grapes, pomegranates and yes, some amazing berries, too!”

She’s got a tattoo for her love for travel!


A vacation makes for a wonderful refresher and for her, it was just like that. “I am a big travel addict,” she admits. “I think travelling fills your life with experiences you cannot ever get by reading a book or watching a film. It takes you away from your daily routine to experience diverse cultures, food, people, places and a lot more – it helps you discover yourself in the process. So yes, I love to explore this dimension of myself often. I even have a tattoo on my left ankle which says ‘fernweh’, which means the love for travel. That’s how much I love to travel,” she says.
