Spontaneous decisiveness. It seems these words have been the very definition of my travel habits lately. I make spontaneous plans and decide on a destination without hesitation. It's almost like a "Do or Die" for me and my trip to the charming city of Prague was exactly that. However, when I say "spontaneous decisiveness" I [...]
I must say, this blog post was meant to be about the Prague trip I took a month ago. However, my mind shifted elsewhere. I've had this one burning question since we went on lockdown. — when will we get to travel again? To be fair, no one, not Google, not even the World Wide [...]
These are strange times we're in today. I must first and foremost mention, that I may have dodged a couple of "bullets" the past 3 weeks with this pandemic. Had I not followed my guts, I would probably still be stuck in the Czech Republic and probably won't be back in KL for a while. [...]
Time to look at my travel skincare bag for a months worth of travel or even just for a week.

After almost completely destroyed by bombs, they built bridges. Modern day Rotterdam carries no resemblance from the old Rotterdam, a city that was reduced to rubble in May 1940 to push the fearful Netherlands into a premature surrender so that the German airforce would never repeat the same feat on its other thriving cities. Rising [...]
If you're arriving in Abu Dhabi as part of your adventure in the middle east region, or just for a short break, then you're definitely in for a treat in this superlative city. In my most recent posts, I shared with you two Abu Dhabi experiences which you can easily do in a day or [...]
A story, a review and a wonderful photo journal - this is our time in UAE's top dune region. Our trip to Abu Dhabi had seen us chasing pucks in an ice rink instead of sipping bitter Arab coffee in an oasis in the middle of the desert. Fortunately, on the last day of the [...]
After three days of intense uber-focused and a strict schedule of everything hockey, we had our first day off (April 18th) from the IIHF WCCOA tournament. Bearing in mind that we still had one more game the following day, we decided to take it easy and explore the city slowly. The obvious most chill thing [...]
