Shivya Nath is the creative mind behind the blog.
Shivya's from India.
The Shooting Star travel blog records the adventures of Shivya on her quest to visit undiscovered places that few have been to and even fewer have written about. Shivya is determined to find hidden gems around the world and share them through her blogs.

In South East Asia, Shivya discovers weekend getaways in Singapore and adventures that cant be missed in Malaysia.
Travelling through Europe, she reveals the secrets of Germany...
...and in India, Shivyas homeland, she shares destinations for romantic weekends alongside unusual end-of-summer getaways in Delhi, and the secrets of the Uttarakhand jungle.
