This post is dedicated to you, whoever you are and wherever you’re reading from. Thank you. Thank you for being a part of The Shooting Star, for leaving me words of wisdom and encouragement, for liking & sharing my posts, and for being with me virtually. I couldn’t have made it to 100,000 views without you. I present you with a brand new look today.
A new focus.
After several failed attempts at blogging, I started The Shooting Star as a personal blog, a space online to connect with my deepest, sometimes not so legible thoughts, and the world. I made some great blogging friends along the way.
Sometime in 2007, I became a travel addict. My posts slowly started taking the shape of travel posts. Even more so since 2009, when I began to travel not just for travel’s sake, but also to seek fodder for my blog. Traveling to new places has become such an integral part of me that I’m ready to call The Shooting Star something of a travel blog. I hope you’ll continue to travel with me virtually on my journeys around the world.
A new community.
Together with a new blog focus, I’m also embarking on a new cause. A cause to bring together travelers who seek out offbeat, unexplored places around the world. Join my 2-day old Facebook page to find your next travel inspiration or share your best-discovered travel secrets.

I’m the founder of this award-winning travel blog about offbeat and sustainable travel, and author of the bestselling travel memoir, The Shooting Star.
In 2011, I quit my full-time job, and gradually gave up my home, sold most of my possessions, stored some in the boot of a friend’s car and embraced a nomadic life.
