WELCOME TO MY TRAVEL WEBSITE AND PARTAKE OF MY JOURNEYS!
We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have, if only we seek them with our eyes wide open. ~ Jawaharlal Nehru
I am a dreamer and I am still dreaming and yet living the dream. My dream was to travel and that dream came true one day. Then I continued to dream of all those foreign countries that I could only dream of visiting….. Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore, India, Nepal. Then one day I was living that dream. My dreams continued and became bigger ….. Australia, New Zealand, Europe, USA, Middle East, Canada, South America and all of them came to pass. I have still many more dreams to bring to reality….. and it’s possible cos I have done it before. The person who said dreams will not and can never come true didn’t chase after them. I did and see where it has got me …. to all the wonderful places on planet Earth. To-date I have travelled to more than 70 countries and the list can only grow longer. Just can’t wait for my next trip and Central America, Antarctica, Iceland, Mongolia are calling my name!!!
I visited Syria in the year 2010 and all kinds of objections were hurled at me because it was perceived as not a safe country to travel to, let alone for a solo female traveller! Of course I didn’t heed their well intended advice and went ahead to visit this land that has the kindest and most giving people I have the privilege to meet. I have dedicated a post to Syria as it is impossible to visit it right now. Read it in my blog on “Beautiful People in Syria“.
Turkey is one country that I am more than happy to go back again and again. So far I have been to Istanbul three times and each time it’s like going home. It is the place where I felt very safe walking alone anytime of the day or night. People are not selfish with their smiles and will comfortably fall in step with you and make friendly conversation. It is also in Cappadocia where I did one of my bucket list – air ballooning!! What an experience. Will blog about Turkey soon… so keep on visiting my website to read about my dreams and hope that it will start you dreaming as well!
When I was much younger, China was not a country I was itching to visit. But I think China has finally got to me. I found myself looking up for new and unique places to visit because China has one of the best landscapes in the world. Best of all, China is just a short flight away and still affordable for backpackers. Do visit my blogs on China to get tips and read about my adventures.
South America was my longest dream ever. It took the longest to become a reality and boy … it was worth the wait. Watch out for my coming blogs on all the beautiful countries of South America which I visited in 2014. Wanna know how to buy your Machu Picchu tickets online? I have it all mapped out step by step in my “How to purchase Machu Picchu tickets online” post. The Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia is a must-see destination for its stupendous, magnificent and fascinating landscapes. Before you embark on this tour, read my Tips For a Uyuni Salt Flats tour, Boliva to get some information.
The reason why I went to Quito was to stand in the middle of the world. Awesome!!! Yes… travelling does get my adrenaline pumping and as long as my legs can carry me, I will continue exploring this beautiful world of ours. Yeah … a toast to my gallivanting spirit and to the many countries waiting for me to visit!
