  1. Shivya, just wanted to say that one who follows her passion is one who really lives life. Glad you are living your life! Keep going..


  2. I have just one sentence for you..
    “You are an Inspiration” :)
    I’m more like Walter Mitty… and i think its time for me to keep you as my role model.!


  3. YOGiNi says

    Hi Shivya, so glad I came across your blog :) Reading about your travel, achievements, and experiences is awesome. The travel bug bit me when I first went on bike-trip to the mesmerizing Ladakh…i became greedy from there on. Where are you heading next? Keep traveling keep writing! bon voyage :)


I'd love to hear your thoughts and feedback.
