What is the one thing you would you keep in your bag while travelling? Camera? Secret diary? Sunglasses? Sounds like something one would usually go with, right? But, a Delhi-based guy stepped out of the ordinary and traveled around the country with a yellow plate. Himanshu Sehgal, a food blogger explored the best food joints in the city and uploaded pictures of delectable delicacies on Instagram.

With a wish to travel the entire country, he has been “going places and eating on his yellow plate” according to his Instagram bio. From Manali to Pushkar and Jim Corbett — his pictures will take you on a journey of gourmet cuisines from one place to another — all on the bright yellow plate.

Narrating how the idea came up to him, he told “It was back in 2015, when I found this unused yellow plate in my kitchen and started eating on it. Soon, I realised it could be a perfect part of my travel adventures, so I decided to carry it in my backpack and eat on it wherever I stop by. Later, I created this Instagram account and started sharing my yellow plate adventures!”

In one his posts, he confessed, “In 2015, I gave up my job because I realized I was not made for it and I was wasting my time” and said that in September 2015, “My Yellow Plate was born”.
