I've spent months backpacking through Western Europe - Spain, Italy, France, Netherlands, Germany - and can help you plan your travel to small countryside villages and towns that really are quintessentially Europe!
I've travelled through remote and rural parts of India, staying at homestays, exploring the local cuisines and cultures of the region, and getting to know an India that we citified folk often forget. I can help you travel off the beaten path in India.
I travelled through Sri Lanka for 15 days, exploring the hill country, the eastern beaches, and small villages in the heart of the country, and really fell in love! I can help plan your travel, suited to the weather and your personal interests.
I spent half a dozen years studying and working in Singapore. I can help you plan your trip on a budget or more luxuriously, advise on where to find the best vegetarian food, and where to find the best shopping deals.
Malaysia was second home to me while I lived in Singapore. I am well versed with its popular beaches and hill stations, as well as pretty little gems relatively off the beaten path. I'm happy to help you discover the best of Malaysia, truly Asia!
I spent three weeks in Mauritius, which has so much more besides its pristine beaches! I stayed with a local family in a mountain lodge and in a beach homestay, and absolutely loved the island.
We used Shivya's advice for planning our Europe trip. She gave us very sound guidance and helped us make the most of our short trip. And very well-organized as well.
I'd give 5-stars, but I did experience a few delays in getting her email responses. Minor niggle in what was otherwise an excellent experience.
