IRAN : COLORFUL MORNING AT NASIR OL MOLK MOSQUE

Spending almost an entire morning inside a place of worship, that’s built not even for my own religion became one of my most remarkable travel experiences to date!

One of my good friends have been inspiring me to always look at the positive side of things, rather than to focus on being cynical and to pay attention to all things negative. His views reminded me that it’s healthier to see the good amidst the inevitable complications and unforeseen sequela. It’s tough but it’s…

PRICELESS THINGS I LEARNED FROM LIVING AND TRAVELING IN MALAYSIA

JORDAN | ROAD TRIP X FOOD TRIP

Similar to an impulse that travels from the brain to the spine and elsewhere, the decision to take my feet to one of the places in my bucket list happened spontaneously. Destination : Jordan.

DESERT SAFARI : DEFINITELY DUBAI!

A visit to Dubai is never complete without experiencing desert adventures. Dune bashing, sand skiing, dune buggy, barbecue dinners, camel rides, and for the more financially equipped, hot air ballooning during sunrise. These activities may be so touristy but heck, they’re almost synonymous with this future-forward city. Desert Safari’s one of the must-do when you’re…
