I’ve always loved exploring as a kid and being an Iranian British myself, this grew within me a passion of discovering other cultures and learning about new people.

I love all the rush and excitement. Nothing is familiar everything is new, even the simplest things you do in every day life are different when you’re in another country like ordering coffee or taking money from the ATM.

What I love most about traveling is the freedom. I feel  open to new things and new experiences once I’m out of my daily routine. I start acting on impulse and saying yes to almost everything.


Traveling means meeting new people all the time since you’re lost most of the time and need help around. In no other time in my life have I met so many people and made so many new friends in such a short time.  The world is full of friendly, generous people.

Traveling is also about learning. I learn about the people I am visiting away from all the stereotypes planted in our minds by the media. I appreciate cultural  dissimilarities rather than avoiding them.

All of this makes me forever hungry for traveling to new places and filling my passport with stamps from all over the world.
