Traveling the world and yet earning money: Read the fascinating story of this Indian blogger
Unlike us, she has no home. For each one of you reading this thrilling story of Shivya Nath, she doesn’t need to go back home after a long travel. For her it’s just moving on, quite literally. She is different from most of us. For you may be remembering 2016, the year gone by as a year you got hooked to a girl or got promotion, but Shivya remembers the year as “the year I imprinted myself into the sky.”

“Three years ago, I gave up my home, sold most of my stuff and embraced a nomadic way of life. This journey has taken me as far within as with my feet,” that’s what Shivya writes.

Just like you go to office every day, Shivya was just like us. From having a 9-5 job, a handsome pay package and a lot of stories stored within. She chose the last one to live with. We take ages to make a plan to meet over coffee on a lazy winter Sunday, but Shivya goes to Guatemala, Romania or a village in Goa when she feels bored.

In 2011, “I had begun resenting my 9-to-5 routine and cubicle-bound life. I told myself that if I don't take the plunge now to experiment with a different way of life, I might never do it.”

Less than half a year later, she had enough to travel in India and set out for her first destination: Spiti. Six years later, Shivya is still on the road, documenting her adventures on her blog, The Shooting Star and her Instagram.
