Salalah – An oasis in the Arabian desert

It was a quick decision I just couldn’t postpone seeing Salalah any further. With a quick research I found the best ticket deal on Qatar airways. It was the best choice in terms of convenience and transit time. Gathering Q-miles loyalty points is also a plus. It was just me, a weekender bag, a book and my camera. I wasn’t sure of what I was going […]

A day trip to Sintra

  I love using Instagram for travel inspiration. When I was in Lisbon earlier this year I checked Lisbon’s hashtag to plan my trip. While scrolling through the many beautiful photos of Lisbon I came across some photos of Sintra.     Sintra looked very colorful and interesting so I immediately decided to go there. I took a taxi from the hotel and headed to Sintra. How to get […]

Bosnia – Heaven on earth

An unexpected and unplanned trip turned to one of my favorite travel adventures of the year. I was invited to visit Bosnia and Croatia by Velvet life, a highly personalized luxury travel boutique based in Bosnia. There are a number of airlines that fly to Bosnia for example FlyDubai, Pegasus Airlines and Turkish Airlines. I travelled with Turkish Airlines as it had the shortest transit time. The flight from Bahrain to Istanbul […]

Meat Co.

Regardless of how many new steak houses opening up in Bahrain, I don’t think any of them stand a chance to take over Meat co’s place as the most popular destination for meat lovers in the island. I visited The Meat company (Meat Co.) with my friend Reem for dinner last Monday. It was good to see the place so lively filled with people enjoying their night on a weekday. It was […]

Egypt – Um Al Donya –

Commonly known to all Arabs as Um AlDonya (mother of the world) is one of the oldest civilizations that is Egypt.     I visited Egypt last summer for the first time in my life. Some countries don’t need any introduction and Egypt is definitely one of them. I grew up highly influenced by Egyptian culture. Egyptian TV and cinema was and in a sense still is dominating […]

Have I told you about my trip to Sudan

It slipped my mind that I didn’t blog about my trip to Sudan earlier this year. Not in a million years I would have thought that I’ll spend new year’s eve listening to fireworks in Sudan!     The trip itself was very different from any of my previous trips. The country and the people are very unique. I spent around a week in Khartoum in addition to […]
