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…

The Journey to Love

The path to true love can often be
Long, winding and somewhat rocky
The journey can be easy at times,
But difficult at others.

The journey can be short for some,
But long for others.
The journey will never be the same for each other,
Because every one of us is different.

None of us will ever know what this path is like
Until we have to travel it ourselves.

(Sharon L Norris)
