Asrar Mohammad ..It’s All Worth It!

Travelling to me is all about “randomness”… I love going to random countries, and explore random places within those countries just to meet random people and listen to their stories.

I usually study the costs carefully before making any trip, because I believe that the smart travel is the one who gives you many benefits with a very moderate budget.

My story with traveling began in 2005; when I decided to go on a trip to Germany to visit a friend of mine, but the itinerary changed when I found myself spending most of my time riding trains and exploring Europe in a fun way.

Traveling is difficult especially for people like me who suffer from “Aerophobia”, however, getting to a places where not a single photo can describe how beautiful it is makes it worth the money, the time, and the fear.

There are some trips that I cannot forget such as my trip to Oman this year for skydiving; I was ready to fly, but because of the strong wind I lost my balance and fell down and hurt my knee. And the most beautiful trip was visiting Mount Kosciuszko in Australia.

I travel to explore myself, because understanding cultures, people and traditions makes me understand myself better as well as life.
