I am married to my loving husband for more than 38 years now. I am a mother to 3 beautiful children, until 11 years ago when I lost my youngest son. Since then my life is forever altered but yet unbroken....

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…

2017 Travel in Retrospect

"Travel opens your eyes and helps you learn who you are..."

Another year has passed. Once again it is time to look back on our travels in 2017 and to look forward to the coming years.

Hubby and I love to travel because it makes us appreciate our blessings, especially the gift of health, wealth and time. Travelling gives a sense of adventure and freedom and allows us to get away from our mundane life. We experience other cultures, get to know places we have only seen on TV or on the web. We get to try new food and meet new people.
