Did we forget about Empathy?

“When I get ready to talk to people, I spend two thirds of the time thinking what they want to hear and one third thinking about what I want to say.” – Abraham Lincoln – Did we forget about Empathy? I feel so. We’re in 2019, in an era covered by tech, business, money, meaningless…

My 29th Wish – Educating The Ones Who Stayed

Time goes by, we become older and wiser (hopefully). We spend more time thinking about the future responsibilities and less time overthinking about the past and its what, why and how come.  Every year we add a part to our life, and create ourselves as we tend and shall be different from what we were the…

The Real (Unexpected) Saudi Arabia – Part I

“There is nothing in Saudi Arabia, why would you go there?” “It is too dangerous there and women are not respected, don’t go!” etc. People talk, and talk nonsense without then really understanding what is really happening on the ground. A lot has to do with media portraying Saudi Arabia (or the Arab world) in…

Hidden Stories of Mauritius

Definitely not just a sand, beach and resorts country: Mauritius is full in history, culture and lots of places to discover while in the country. “The island of Mauritius was visited during the Middle Ages by the Arabs and then by the Portuguese, who named it Dina Arobi and Cirne, respectively. The island was uninhabited until the…

Growing old or growing wise?

Considering the fact that we never stop learning in life, I assume we will never be wise enough not to make mistakes. However at least we grow enough to realise what has to be changed and why. I would even point out the fact that there are no mistakes in life leading you to the…

Sharjah: The Beautiful And Most Conservative Emirate

We always link the word Emirates to Dubai or Abu Dhabi, while there is a lot to discover while in the UAE. I got fascinated by the simplicity of one specific place: the Emirate of Sharjah. The UAE is composed of 7 Emirates: Abu Dhabi (The Capital), Dubai, Fujairah, Sharjah, Ras Al-Khaima, Umm Al-Quawin. We…

True Colours: Their Actions Speak Louder Than Words

27 years old and a story which is rich in its adventures, fun moments, memories, people to remember and people to lock in that space called heart. But it’s also rich of “negative” feelings such as loneliness, anger, frustration that all lead to some of the most positive and useful moments in life: Life Lessons….

Finding The Magic Side Of Life

This is not a post that is meant to be like any other informative blog articles that I am writing to explain my travels, the people I meet, the difficulties I face generally talking. This is going to be mainly a reflection of our paths and processes of growing up: the difference of our brain…

Learning The Hard Way: Thank You Sri Lanka!

Time to say bye to this experience too. Time to fly away again. It gets even hard to write about it, there is a lot to say, a lot to express and  a lot to lock in that space called heart.  I used to appreciate my experience in China more than anything else in life, for…

Country Number 40: Walking and Eating Tour In Sweden!

If somebody doesn’t know, I have a goal to achieve before turning 30 (well, more than one, but this is the craziest): 50 countries to visit.  It sounds possible, though it’s a bit funny for my friends: they still laugh about it. Anyway, everybody has its own goals and desires in life: there is somebody…
