I’m surrounded by the jungles of Jim Corbett as I write this, my 200th post. This trip to India’s oldest Tiger Reserve is as special as today’s post; this is my first ever travel blogging trip, with the awesome social media folks at Club Mahindra. And I owe it to you, for reading my blog & keeping me company while I travel! So I’m going to thank you, and celebrate these two momentous occasions by giving away my copies of two of these 4 unlikely travel books to inspire you to travel.
The first of these is ‘From Heaven Lake,’ by Vikram Seth. The book is a captivating travelogue set in the 90s, of our author hitch-hiking from China to India, via Tibet and Nepal.
The second is ‘Into Thin Air,’ by Jon Krakauer, who gives a moving first-hand account of the infamous 1996 expedition to Mount Everest.
To win one of these, all you have to do is leave me a comment, telling me about the ONE place you’ve visited off-the-beaten-track that’ll make me want to pack my bags and find your trails right away. Then I’ll wrap the books, write you a nice note, and post them to you, wherever in the world you are.
You’re also invited to join my newly created Facebook page, incase you haven’t yet joined it. Here, I’ve been sharing live snippets of my adventures in the wilderness, among other things. I hope we’ll continue to travel together virtually, because I for one, love your company 🙂
Update: The entries for this giveaway are now closed. Thank you everyone for participating & for some awesome-sounding travel ideas. I’m working hard to pick a winner now! Stay tuned 🙂
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.
