Photography: Urban Hike. Kuwait City. February 2013

One of many ways to connect to your surroundings and enjoy the outdoors is by walking. We remember more on our legs. I find it exciting to walk between buildings, parks, markets, trails, highways and among the people. Urban Hikes is a series of many more to come, exploring my surroundings. This hike, my friend and I parked our car at the Alhamra building and walked to Souq Al-Mubarakiya. Throughout and for only 200 fils, we even threw in a bus ride just to experience our seldom used public transport. We had lunch at the old market of Mubarakiya and enjoyed our conversations with retired gentlemen who now hang out at the old coffee shops. We talked openly about politics, life and hobbies. These are some of the photos and people we met.

Travel: Madagascar. 2010

Back in 2010, my cousin and I decided to do some volunteer work in Madagascar. The program’s primary initiative was to protect the lemurs, endemic to Madagascar and second, protecting their habitat. We stayed mainly in Antananarivo and south at Port Dauphin. It was an amazing experience, no electricity, on a diet of rice and beans, meeting the wonderful people of Madagascar, learning the language and enjoying the beautiful nature.  There were so many kinds of insects, plants and animals you wouldn’t find anywhere else except in Madagascar.  Along with being able to pitch your own tent and washing the communal dishes, this is an experience I recommend doing at least once in a life time.

If i would live anywhere other than the place where i was born, i would choose Iceland. There are so many things you can do in one small place:

  • Ice climbing on top of an active volcano
  • Snorkeling in -1 degree Celsius lakes
  • Snowmobiling on a glacier
  • Watch geysers blow up
  • Swim in hot springs
  • Walk the mysterious caves of the trolls
  • Gaze at the auroras borealis, a.k.a. the northern lights
  • Kayak along the coast
  • Watch Bjork perform live

Music: Bjork – Royal Opera House

Whether you are a Bjork fan or not, this is a must watch performance by Bjork and her orchestra. Mesmerizing experience through sound!
