Hi! Thanks for stopping by.

I’m Namrata Shah. Travel, long walks, music, interesting conversations, books, movies – these are a few of my favorite things. 

I worked in the IT industry for a little over 20 years in various roles. My corporate/professional life gave me the confidence and courage to dream and helped me see most of my dreams turn into reality. At this point though, I’m on a break from my corporate life – Temporary? Permanent?  I don’t really know. Who knows what the future holds? I’m enjoying my slow-paced life, exploring new possibilities, volunteering with some non-profit organizations that work on causes close to my heart, and being a learner yet again. ?

The mere thought of travel makes me feel happy, alive! I love everything about it – the whole planning process, experiencing the vibe of a new place, conversations with strangers, struggles with language issues, goof-ups – every single thing! I’ve traveled solo and as part of groups, to remote and untouched places and to the most touristy ones. I love how every place has something so unique to offer. I love how two people who have visited the same place can see it so differently and how visiting the same place the second time makes me see it so differently! Travel has, in so many ways, been a great teacher!

So far, I’ve kept posting my travel stories on Facebook (my posts can be long… really really long!). After procrastinating for the longest time, I’m finally taking baby steps in the world of blogging to share those travel experiences and stories. I hope that it would help someone somewhere get rid of apprehensions and make them go out and live their travel dreams…. Because this world is absolutely gorgeous and there’s no greater joy than exploring it your own way!
