About Me

Hi and welcome to Shalsworld!

As you might have guessed, my name is Shal 🙂

I created this site as a way to keep my friends and family updated with my life, as they tend to be spread around the globe.

I am a 20-something year old who was born and raised in Canada, with Indian parents who understood the value of travel.  I had the opportunity to go on amazing family vacations from day one up to now (the most recent being July, 2016) and I began travelling on my own when I turned 16.  A 3-month exchange in Spain turned into a 6-month exchange in Australia which became a 1-year work placement in Namibia and then a Master’s Degree in Europe.

Throughout my life I have looked for ways to combine the things I am interested in with travelling.  I firmly believe that everyone should seize the opportunities available today to explore, as technology and advancements are making even the most remote places accessible.

I hope to continue combining my passions, as well as be able to share my experiences with everyone!  Feel free to keep up with my life and follow my adventures here.  Don’t hesitate to contact me as well.
