„It is incredible motivation for ‘one woman company’!” said founder & director of SHAKTI TRAILS, Zuzana Zwiebel Magdova, who is based in south Asia since 2007 – studying, working and living in Sri Lanka and India. „I am cooperating with several tour operators in Central Europe last 15 years, but my dream always was to introduce alternative forms of tourism and introduce destinations India, Sri Lanka and Maldives from different more sensitive perspective, which respects local culture and connecting local community with travellers. Since 2013 I am developing portal SHAKTI TRAILS (Registered in India as INDIA IN STYLE) based on concept ART OF TRAVEL, which is collection of (extra)ordinary people and their stories, whose experiences are transferred into various trails shared with travellers. (It will be fully launched in 2016.)”

“Working in the area of tourism and non – profit organizations I always tried to find “special features” of the cultures, which make countries special and interesting for visitors by keeping their authenticity and this way achieving sustainable social, cultural and environmental development. I have understood, that there is nothing “better” or “worst”, most of the time it is just “different”. Zuzana Zwiebel Magdova

ART OF TRAVEL (When & Where to travel?) is based on a philosophy of three words:
SPIRIT (Who to meet?) – Spirits (local experts) are people who can inspire others.
STORY (What to do?) – Stories of spirits are transformed into the trails, which connect not only places on the map, but also creating meaningful connections with local people.
STYLE (Where to stay?) – Style does not mean luxury, it is experience.
SHAKTI TRAILS develops several trails inspired by South Asian culture and history in India, Sri Lanka and Maldives.
