Sounds fascinating? Well, Shubham's journey is a bagful of such incredible narratives.
Sharing his experience in an interview, Shubham described his complete journey from a small village of Munger in Bihar to 3 years of travelling through 3 different continents, 30 countries, and 50,000+ km of hitchhiking.
He calls himself Nomad Shubham. For him, the whole world is his home. At the age of 17, when lakhs of students like him were preparing rigorously for JEE Mains in the coaching capital of India -Kota, he took a step to follow his passion, the passion to travel the world which he earlier thought could be possible only if he becomes pilot or an engineer.
Inspiration behind this journey:
In Sept 2017, he had goosebumps while watching videos of Varun vagish (YouTube: Mountain Trekker) & Ted Talk by Tomislav Perko on “How to travel the world with almost no money”. He promptly said to himself," I can also do this " , and rest is the history.
With his small savings and income from Tuitions, he managed his first few trips in Rajasthan (Jaipur, Jaisalmer, Bikaner).
On Jan 18, with his savings, he set off his foot to Jaipur - Pushkar - Shimla - Spiti - ladakh ultimately ditching the apathetic wish to become an engineer.
