Why I fell in love with the Middle East and why you should too

•••
Finding my feet through all the hustle and bustle, the hypnotizing sound of the Arabic language singing in my ears, the smell of cardamom filling my nose from the streets. The sun laying on my skin like velvet. I remember why it was so easy to for me to fall in love with the Middle East the first time. 4 years living in Saudi Arabia and travelling [...]

Roadtrip through Uganda: Finding Gorillas, Chimps & Lions

•••
I don't have a bucket list when it comes to traveling. I don't even know why I don't; maybe I am scared that I can't tick everything off in one lifetime. Mind you, I have had the privilege to do many bucket list worthy things so far: see orangutans in the wild, have a huskie puppy named after me, and scuba dive in the Maldives. As you can tell the common d[...]

A Road Trip through Tunisia

•••
Last summer, I spent two months interning in a software company in Tunisia. During my brief stay, I was surprised at the historical riches present in this country. Carthaginians, Romans and Byzantines have all passed through this land, leaving their mark behind, buried over and over by sand and wind. During a week long trip throughout the country, I also dis[...]

27 Photos Which Will Make You Visit Morocco

•••
I LOVE Morocco. I love the people, the colours, the cities and the fact that every place you go is so different from the last. I love eating bowls of Harira soup in the market and drinking steaming cups of mint tea with Nomad families. I recently went back to the country with Intrepid Travel, where I spent two weeks on their Best of Morocco tour. I was l[...]

A Trip to Bhalil: Going off the beaten track in Morocco

•••
When planning my trip to Morocco back in October 2016, I definitely did not want it to be just another imperial cities and desert journey like many. Sure, I could not wait to see Fes or Marrakesh, and I was looking forward Chefchaouen's characteristic blue, not to mention the wonderful experience a friend of mine had in Rabat in her month long stay that made[...]

•••
I have just returned from South Africa where I combined a press trip for Thomas Cook in Durban with a visit to my old home, Cape Town. Even though I was traveling in the middle of South African winter I was beyond stoked to have an opportunity to see my friends and family, eat some of my favorite grub, and just to see the South African sky again. As soo[...]
