Hi, and welcome to World in my Backpack, a travel blog all about my journey, both through life and around the world. The two of which are intrinsically linked. My name is Shubham. I was born in Mumbai and studied for my Bachelor’s in the USA. It was during my studies that the travel bug first gripped me.
As part of my course I was required to visit the Balkans for a semester. I discovered that this planet is filled with places so different from each other, yet wonderful in their own ways. My love for travel and exploring the globe was awakened, and since then I have visited over 80 countries.
As I discover the diverse, unique and fascinating places, I also discover so much about myself. Travelling has truly transformed my life, and given me the personal skills to do so much. I now have the confidence to go off the beaten track and get outside of my comfort zone. From tackling the Pamir highway in Tajikistan and Afghanistan to swimming with sharks in Galapagos, each adventure has given me some amazing memories that will last a lifetime, and I’ve made some wonderful friends along the way too.
The aim of this blog is to share with you details about the more off beat destination, and give you some tips from my travels that I hope you will find useful on your own adventures around the world.
Have a wonderful journey, wherever life takes you!
