About Dibin

After six years, Dibin was happy to leave Dubai’s clinically clean environs and come right back to exploring the wonderfully unkempt and thickly green landscape of good old Kerala on his cycle. Amongst the diverse Kerala experiences, Dibin loves the traditional cuisines and organic farming methods the most! If he’s not scouring through the Kerala trails, you will find him hooked to movies with an intellectual tug; Into the Wild is his favourite! Oh not to forget he has cycled from Bangalore to Ladakh in one month.
