  • Description
    Shivya Nath quit her corporate job at age twenty-three to travel the world. She gave up her home and the need for a permanent address, sold most of her possessions and embarked on a nomadic journey that has taken her everywhere from remote Himalayan villages to the Amazon rainforests of Ecuador. Along the way, she lived with an indigenous Mayan community in Guatemala, hiked alone in the Ecuadorian Andes, got mugged in Costa Rica, swam across the border from Costa Rica to Panama, slept under a meteor shower in the cracked salt desert of Gujarat and learnt to conquer her deepest fears. With its vivid descriptions, cinematic landscapes, moving encounters and uplifting adventures, The Shooting Star is a travel memoir that maps not just the world but the human spirit.

    Wonderful

    So I had been following the author on the instagram for a while, and her post really makes my day.
    About this book, I really enjoy reading the book. The style, with its all honesty is quite refreshing and appropriate. Rather than a linear approach, she had written it like a memory rather than every other story. How the life doesn't always have an order but things fall in to place, step by step in to the beautiful journey. It was not a surprise when it became a best seller.
