The story first came out in NewsMinute and has since gone viral, causing many sitting in their air-conditioned offices to question the purpose of their current 9 to 5 (or worse) work schedules.
And since the internet is swooning over the couple bitten by the travel bug, could the man with 18 million Facebook and 11.9 million Twitter followers be far behind? Amitabh Bachchan, actor, superstar, and social media sensation, shared NewsMinute's story on his Facebook and Twitter pages, thereby putting a definitive stamp of all things awesome on this couple's already superlative feat.
Vijayan and his wife have been to Switzerland, Israel, Egypt, South Africa, Britain, France, Austria, UAE and many, many more nations but the one place they really wish to visit but still haven't been able to cross off the bucket-list, is the United States of America. How are they managing to do this on the earnings of their tea shop you wonder? Through bank loans it seems. They take a loan, go abroad, come back rejuvenated and work non-stop to repay the loan off. If this isn't awe-inspiring, nothing is.
