Gray-haired in their 70s, married for 45 years and running a tea store in Kochi ever since 1963, a couple apart from sharing their workload, shared another dream together-- to take a tour across the world.

It is not just another ordinary tale of a globetrotting couple. 

Saving every penny possible, and putting together all their hard work in their tea-stall, the couple has already traveled across 20 countries, from Singapore to New York, Switzerland, Brazil, Argentine, Peru and dream to see more. With the yearning to travel the world, the man started selling tea on the streets of Kochi

Leaving thousands impressed on the internet, the couple managed to tug the heart of business tycoon Anand Mahindra. The Chairman of the Mahindra Group shared the video of this couple and expressed his gratitude to the Wanderlust-ers.

He further said that he would visit their tea-stall next time he's in town that is embellished with their memories of travel. 

The tweet included a video by Drew Binsky, a travel blogger who featured the couple, thus giving his audience a slice of their lives. Shot in their tea-stall where people can be seen relishing the tea, while the couple recites their rousing tale of travel. 

While inspired by their story, Mahindra even thought of a brilliant idea as an anniversary gift for the couple, he asked Twitter, "Well what about us finding out the date of their wedding anniversary and crowdsourcing the funding for their next trip as an anniversary gift?"
