Europe has always been about friends, indul­gence, art and fash­ion. Unfor­tu­nately I have lost most of my pic­tures to sup­port my exper­i­ence.
For now, a bit of beau­ti­ful Florence (Firenze) and South­ern France will do the trick!!

South Amer­ica

South America

Feel­ing rest­less? You’re not alone: Everybody’s start­ing to look for more mean­ing in life. Start pay­ing closer atten­tion to those seem­ingly “Chance Coin­cid­ences” — strange occur­rences that feel like they were meant to hap­pen. They are actu­ally syn­chron­istic events, and fol­low­ing them will start you on your path to spir­itual truth.” The 1st insight of The Celestine Proph­ecy Sum­mar­ised by Alan Atkisson
I don’t remem­ber which year I read The Celestine Proph­ency but all I know is never stopped think­ing about South Amer­ica till I finally went in 2009.

Canada and US

Canada and US

Canada is the place I called home for many years, a coun­try enclos­ing infin­ite beauty in its end­less land­scapes as well as in the hearts of its cit­izens.
Trav­el­ing across Canada is purely magic, des­pite the extremely long and harsh winter and I still believe Montreal is the most beau­ti­ful, fas­cin­at­ing city to live in.

Aus­tralia and New Zealand

Australia and New Zealand

Aus­tralia is the world’s sixth largest coun­try and it’s the largest Island. It is the only island that is also a con­tin­ent, and the only con­tin­ent that is also a county. It was the first con­tin­ent conquered from the sea, and the last. It is the only nation that began as a prison.
It is the home of the largest liv­ing things on earth, The Great Bar­rier Reef, and the largest mono­lith, Ayers Rock (or Uluru to use its now-official, more respect­ful Abori­ginal name). It has more things that will kill you than any­where else.” Bill Bryson in Down Under
And New Zea­l­and – Simply HEAVEN on Earth!! for me it was all a big dream come TRUE!!

Middle East

Middle East

Hum… I meet a Cana­dian couples in Egypt as I just fin­ished my “Cape to Cairo” They were head­ing to South and Me… was sup­pose to go back home!! At least that is what I thought. We acci­dently exchanged our Guide Books, and the next thing I know … I woke up in Akaba, Jordan.
And sud­denly I dis­covered the world of col­ors, fla­vor and won­der­ful people. Ah… Knafeh in Jordan, Hum­mus in Israel, Moun­tain of sweets in Dam­as­cus, Zest for Life in Beirut.



Mark Twain wrote:

There is only one India: The land of dreams and romance … A won­der­land of fab­ulous wealth and fab­ulous poverty, of splendor and rags. The one sole coun­try under the sun that is endowed with an imper­ish­able interest for alien prin­cess and peas­ants, for lettered and ignor­ant, wise and fool, rich and poor, bond and free, the one land that all men desire to see, and hav­ing seen once, by even a glimpse, would not give that glimpse for the shows of all rest of the globe combined …”

I couldn’t agree more!!



My first love out­side my own world (Ethiopia) came from West African women. I loved the bold color of their clothes and the way they talked loud and laughed a lot. The batiks cap­tured my eyes. (I didn’t even know what they were called back then). I just knew one day I wanted to go there” From my art­icle on Hori­zon Ethiopia , Ethiopian, Eng­lish Speak­ing Nomad
That’s how “Cape to Cairo” was born. Who knew I would travel around Africa years later!!
