MY TRAVEL TIMELINE
Like all-travelers, I had to start somewhere, so here’s a chronological list of most of my travels.
THE EVOLUTION OF MY TRAVELS
Swam with thresher sharks in Malapascua Island, snorkeled with turtles in Moalboal, while getting an Advanced Open Water License. Cebu - check!December 2019
Indian weddings are filled with colourful clothing, traditional music, Bollywood dancing, delicious food and great company. It is the ultimate cultural experience, and to top it off, it was in one of the most romantic locations in India - Udaipur, Rajasthan.
A gathering of Global Shapers, young changemakers from different corners of the world at SHAPE Asia Pacific in Bangkok. Learnt about a social enterprise that aims to integrate the elderly community into fast-paced modernization happening in Bangkok
A trip to the depths of Borneo jungle to learn about wealth of biodiversity in a tropical rainforest, sustainability and conservation efforts, and cutting-edge scientific research.
Cherry on top of the cake was getting my Open Course Diving Certification in Sipadan Island, the number one diving spot in the world!
Completed the Mardi Himal trek, paraglided at Sarangkot and fell in love with Nepalese kindness ❤
First time in Africa! Cycling around the city of Khartoum to getting our 4WD stuck in the Sahara desert. Had fun dressing up in Cleopatra costume, raiding ancient pharoah tombs, and camping by the Nubian pyramids.
Took a chunk out of the big apple, Masters shopping in the Ivy League universities and solid family bonding sessionsSeptember 2017
Motorcycled around the Mae Hong Son loop (well I was just the pillion). 700kms in 5 days with our 125cc rented motorcycle, made friends with Thai bikers and was invited to a biker's festival in the countryside.
We traversed through burnt landscapes and visited villages of the local Karen people.
The bizarre Japanese art of making public nudity appear decent, only they can master. I was awkward as f, to say the least….
Explored Northern Portugal & Scotland with a man I met in Madrid two months prior. He eventually became my boyfriend of two years, a long-distance relationship spanning two continents.
Unfortunately, like most long-distances, it didn’t end in happy ever after – but I got an epic love story out of it!August 2015
- Cycled, kayaked and camped at the Polish port-town of Gdansk, Gydnia and Sopot. Witnessed first-hand the World War concentration camps at Auschwitz.

- Of course, what’s a Eurotrip without a stopover in Bratislava, Slovakia?This trip solidified my choice for the adventurous life. Where's the fun in being normal anyway?

Can't say you've seen all of Australia until you've been to Uluru. Where flies thrive and humans wither
All girls campervan trip across New Zealand's South Island. Kayaked with a school of dolphins in Milford Sound.
