About Cutting Loose

Writer, content developer, foodie, but mostly wanderer, Puneetinder Kaur Sidhu is the author of a fun read Adrift – A Junket Junkie in Europe and blogs at Cutting Loose. She has penned over a dozen guides for Lonely Planet. A generally wide-ranging knowledge about her home state Punjab resulted in a driving guide for Times Group Books. Her undying passion for the great outdoors, she believes, stems from having spent her growing years on the family farm. Her love for food however she blames entirely on her genes, and has channelized it towards authoring the Times Food Guide for Chandigarh.

Her considerable writing repertoire, shaped over the past decade and half, includes a travel and food column in the Hindustan Times. In her role as literary critic, she is regularly called upon by The Tribune to review books. She contributes, not as regularly as she would like, to a number of print and online travel magazines in India and abroad. Every now and then her by-line pops up in the Hindu Business Line and Huffington Post.

Her true love, one she is convinced she will never tire of, is road-tripping through Himalayan splendour.
