It’s been a long time since I shared my last happening. Cause, I was in a dilemma to post about what !!
The leading travel bloggers all over the internet are bustling with their dramatic endeavors.
On the other hand, my busy travelling around the world from the comfort of my home had been great.
Strange !! Isn’t?
Travel the world from the comfort of your home. How many of us love to or have the lust of traveling around the earth !!
Almost every one of us. That’s why you are over here. Isn’t?
But we all know that nothing, specifically the matter we aim for can be managed easily.
To travel we need money as well as vacations. Now it’s not realistic or practical enough that each one of us converts into a travel blogger. I myself not a travel blogger but I love blogging that’s why I came up with an astonishing idea that will help you to peek into different parts of the globe. I tried it and it helped me.
So why shall I not share this with my friends so that my friends can also be benefited just the way I’m.
Do you wanna know how !!

Book 2: The Shooting Star: A Girl, Her Backpack and the World by Shivya Nath
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.
Book 3: Around the World in 80 Trains: A 45,000-Mile Adventure by Monisha Rajesh
‘Monisha Rajesh has chosen one of the best ways of seeing the world. Never too fast, never too slow, her journey does what trains do best. Getting to the heart of things. Prepare for a very fine ride’ Michael Palin
When Monisha Rajesh announced plans
to circumnavigate the globe in eighty train journeys, she was met with
wide-eyed disbelief. But it wasn’t long before she was carefully plotting a
route that would cover 45,000 miles – almost twice the circumference of the
earth – coasting along the world’s most remarkable railways; from the cloud-skimming
heights of Tibet’s Qinghai railway to silk-sheeted splendour on the Venice
Packing up her rucksack – and her
fiancé, Jem – Monisha embarks on an unforgettable adventure that will take her
from London’s St Pancras station to the vast expanses of Russia and Mongolia,
North Korea, Canada, Kazakhstan, and beyond. The ensuing journey is one of
constant movement and mayhem, as the pair strike up friendships and swap
stories with the hilarious, irksome and ultimately endearing travellers they
meet on board, all while taking in some of the earth’s most breathtaking views.
From the author of Around India in 80 Trains comes another witty and irreverent look at the world and a celebration of the glory of train travel. Rajesh offers a wonderfully vivid account of life, history and culture in a book that will make you laugh out loud – and reflect on what it means to be a global citizen – as you whirl around the world in its pages.
Book 4: The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
Like the one-time bestseller Jonathan Livingston Seagull, The Alchemist presents a simple fable, based on simple truths and places it in a highly unique situation. And though we may sniff a bestselling formula, it is certainly not a new one: even the ancient tribal storytellers knew that this is the most successful method of entertaining an audience while slipping in a lesson or two. Brazilian storyteller Paulo Coehlo introduces Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who one night dreams of a distant treasure in the Egyptian pyramids. And so he’s off: leaving Spain to literally follow his dream.
Along the way he meets many spiritual messengers, who come in unassuming forms such as a camel driver and a well-read Englishman. In one of the Englishman’s books, Santiago first learns about the alchemists–men who believed that if a metal were heated for many years, it would free itself of all its individual properties, and what was left would be the “Soul of the World.” Of course he does eventually meet an alchemist, and the ensuing student-teacher relationship clarifies much of the boy’s misguided agenda, while also emboldening him to stay true to his dreams. “My heart is afraid that it will have to suffer,” the boy confides to the alchemist one night as they look up at a moonless night.
About the Author

He is active on numerous other social media platforms. Paulo Coelho was named the Messenger of Peace of the United Nations in 2007 and has bagged numerous prestigious awards like the Crystal Award by the World Economic Forum, The Honorable Award of the President of the Republic by the President of Bulgaria and so on.
