At a team lunch at work last week, Facebook poked its way into our conversation. Only 2 of my 30-something team-mates have ventured into the “happening” world of social networking. I don’t intend to mock, but it was more than amusing to hear someone talk about Facebook in such naive terms! It struck me then that we are really a generation apart. While we were busy building our lives on Facebook, there were some totally oblivious to that part of the world, the way Europeans were to the Americas until Christopher Columbus came along. Who would have thought that the super wall could indeed divide our generation from theirs?
Welcome to my blog, The Shooting Star. I’ve been called a storyteller, writer, photographer, digital nomad, “sustainability influencer,” social entrepreneur, solo traveller, vegan, sustainable tourism consultant and environmentalist. But in my heart, I’m just a girl who believes that travel – if done right – has the power to change us and the world we live in.
