Akila has been traveling non-stop since September 2009. She traveled throughout Australia, New Zealand, Asia, and southern Africa with her husband. They are currently road-tripping through the United States and Europe with their two dogs.

Africa-in-Focus Overland Expedition sponsored Akila on a three-week overland expedition across southern Africa. Akila wrote nine detailed blog posts about overlanding in general and the overland expedition, including a high definition video, that helped increase Africa-in-Focus' exposure on the Internet. Akila is available to attend PR and blog trips and will post about those trips on her content-rich website.
