The Passionate Traveller

Read Saima's Articles

Since a young age, I've always loved the anticipation of travelling abroad to see new places. From the excitement of boarding the plane to trying new foods and exploring new cultures: I’m completely and utterly a self-confessed travel junkie, with a passion for luxury and all things awe-inspiring, so I’m always in search for my next surreal experience, somewhere around the globe.

Want to know more about the world’s tallest skyscrapers, eating at Michelin star restaurants, and attending exclusive fashion shows? I’m on the search for luxury around the world, so you’ve come to the right place!

I was once told by a wise old friend, (sounds like a cliche but it’s true!): “travelling around the world is important. And don’t worry about money. Just take some courage with you.” This inspired thought always is with me. It was so touching and I really do believe this philosophy to be true. I want to travel far and wide and discover cultures, people, etiquette and languages that are foreign to me but will enlighten me of the people who live on this earth.

I’ve been blessed enough to travel to some striking and beautiful destinations, such as, Cambodia, Caribbean Islands, Egypt, Berlin, Tunisia and Torres del Paine. What more, I’ve got a couple of getaways to look forward to, so soon I’ll be adding to that list, Thailand, Dubai and Iceland.

I am a big lover of animals, and I fell in love with the stray cats in Egypt. I’m looking forward to seeing the camels in Dubai, the Elephants and Tigers in Thailand and the arctic foxes in Iceland. I also want to go to Churchill in Canada to go bear spotting!
Usually though, there are three things I look for when I’m on my travels – the best luxury, the finest food and the most thrill-seeking moments. If you want to know about THE places to stay, THE restaurants to eat at and THE craziest things to do, read my blog about my pursuit of luxury.

I’m planning a series of trips to Dubai in the coming months, so if you want to know more about the best things to do in Dubai, read on.
