My Travel Journal

"There isn't much I haven't shared with you along the road and through it all there'd always be tomorrow's episode" - Elton John

I started traveling around the world since early 80s when I had the opportunity to combine business trips with vacations. Then later when my rezeki is in abundance, there were numerous other trips along the way for vacations, most of the time with hubby and the kids when the timing is right. I have also started to compile the journal and photo-pages covering almost more than 25 years of world wide travel. Some destinations I visited just once, others many times. Many of those places are the obvious famous places people would like to visit but some, the casual traveler doesn't even think to try. I have placed links to my travel at the side bar of my personal page, My Life Reflections, and will be updating them from time to time.

My wish is to continue my travel and complete circumnavigate the globe, insyaAllah…

Rotterdam, Nederland 2002 - The World's 2nd Largest Harbour…

"Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you handle it..."

The city was known for having the world's largest harbour, but lost the title in 2004 to Shanghai. It is the second largest city in The Netherlands after Amsterdam, which lies approximately 80 km to the north.

The city's street scenery is characterized by the large presence of people from North Africa, Turkey and the former Dutch colonies of Suriname and Indonesia.

It centre was bombed away during WW2, forcing the city to renew itself completely. The result is a lot of modern architecture.
