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…

My Algerian Story...

“The traveller was active; he went strenuously in search of people, of adventure, of experience. The tourist is passive; he expects interesting things to happen to him. He goes sight-seeing…” – Daniel J. Boorstin

Algeria Adventure
(5 - 15 October 2016)

It is generally safe to move around Algiers and the other main cities in Algeria.

Before going for this Algerian trip, we have scanned the web for any travel alerts and advices and learned that there is no nationwide advisory in effect. However, one should exercise a high degree of caution due to the risk of civil unrest and the threat of terrorism, banditry and kidnapping. It is advisable to take out comprehensive travel and medical insurance before you travel.

During the entire trip, our vehicle was closely escorted from point to point. Travel documents exchange hands at every check points. We were guarded by armed policemen or National Guards during visits to historical sites, museums and mosques. Plain clothes policemen escorted the group even during our shopping excursion in the cities. 

When we strolled the streets on our own we avoided isolated places and would be back to the hotel before dark.

It was a challenging trip, yet exciting!
