Language... has created the word "loneliness" to express the pain of being alone. And it has created the word "solitude" to express the glory of being alone.

Miles ahead of Australia
Every time I travel to the US I see new technology. Or rather, tech that is new to me as an Australian. Sitting in Starbucks I see a wireless phone charger, which enables you to charge your phone right where you are sitting, with no cables. This is one of many reminders to why I love working in tech AND travel.

Would love to hear about the latest innovations in your city!

Dear plussers! Time for advice as I am coming to NYC! Woot woot!

So I am traveling with my sis and friend and we want to go watch our very first ever baseball game at Yankee Stadium in April!

Where can we get super good tickets without having to pay an arm and a leg (and without using street scalpers!)

Looking forward to tips!

Devil's Pool or Babinda Boulders is a natural pool at the confluence of three streams among a group of boulders near Babinda, Queensland, Australia.

According to Aboriginal legend, it is believed to be cursed due to the many deaths that have occurred there. The pools have taken 17 lives since 1959, all male. The legend tells of a woman who married a respected tribal elder but ran away with a young man visiting for the event. When they were captured she threw herself into the waters to escape, calling for her lover to follow her. Her spirit is believed to guard the boulders, luring young men to their deaths in the hope of finding her lover.

I don't describe hard decisions as "coming to a cross road." I view them as a "jump off the visible road you are on and take a chance going down a path that is not yet in sight."

Chilling at the Babinda swimming hole near Devil's Pool where 18 people disappeared (believed drowned).

Babinda is also the wettest town in Australia, with 6,000-7,000 mm of rain per year! And it sits near the wettest place in Australia - Bartle Frere mountain range - which receives up to 12,000 mm of rain per year.

But it didn't rain today ;) #lucky

The most seen / photographed waterfall in Australia and ONE of the most photographed in the world. Lack of rainfall in recent times means the waterfall isn't as gushing as it normally would be. But still lovely :))

Life is fragile. Make peace with those you love and don't love. Forgiveness is eternal.

Hour of Regret
You mock me with your dark hands
Taking those I love, and those loved by those I love
Strumming the song of sorrow as you pass
Piercing my heart with it's dreadful tune
Stealing the memories of my future
And past. As they fade with time.

But I do not fear you Sir.
Nor the journey in your arms.
I fear the memories that can't be undone
Carried by unforgiving souls
Where they shall await my arrival.
And judgement.

You mock me with your dark hands....

A poem dedicated to my loving grandmother, who passed on Friday. May she rest in peace inshallah.


Free from Time by Shaden Mohamed

Boats lull in the harbour's calm
Whose waves do slumber on this day
For all is still beneath the sea
And all is quiet above the bay.

For what may seem an endless hour
Is but a blink in history's mind
As Time is also cursed by time
For losing beauty he may find.

As witness to our travelled lives
He stands behind the looking glass
A shadow in our world and space
He cannot touch us as we pass.

We sing to Time, from time to time
To ask for paths that wind and slow
And fail to note that is his wish
He longs for what he'll never know

And death will come for each of us
And souls will fear that certainty
But Time, in... more »

The Attraction beyond the Attraction
One of Shanghai's most popular tourist sites is is Yu Garden, an area spanning 5 acres and dates back as far as 1559. To get to the gardens, one must walk through the surrounding bazaar, which for me turned out to be the real attraction! So much so that I ditched my plans to enter Yu Garden and instead spent the time wandering around the surrounding streets, getting lost in tea rooms, silk shops and jade jewellers. 

The area surrounding Yu Garden is known by lots of different names, including Yuyuan Bazaa and Old Town. For me, it was the labyrinth of Shanghai, one which I would gladly get lost in again.

One of Shanghai's most popular tourist sites is is Yu Garden, an area spanning 5 acres and dates back as far as 1559. To get to the gardens, one must walk through the surrounding bazaar, which for me turned out to be the real attraction! So much so that I ditched my plans to enter Yu Garden and instead spent the time wandering around the surrounding streets, getting lost in tea rooms, silk shops and jade jewellers. 

The area surrounding Yu Garden is known by lots of different names, including Yuyuan Bazaa and Old Town. For me, it was the labyrinth of Shanghai, one which I would gladly get lost in again.

Multicultural Meals in Shanghai
Okay so I have to admit that I didn't really eat THAT much Chinese food in China. There are limited halal options, which meant I ate a lot of bread (as depicted by the plumpy cheeks!) and a lot of eclectic restaurants, including Moroccan, Mediterranean and even French.

The hot pot was the closest thing to Asian I ate, and apart from a prawn almost jumping off of my plate (yes, it was still alive somehow), the meal was pretty bland. Not a fan of Shanghai dining is all I can say.

History of the Coffee Cup Lid
In 1993 Jay Sorensen invented the design that enabled the lid to be flipped and used as a lid to keep the coffee warm.

Why not just keep the lid on and drink from the mouth hole? Because that design was only meant for drinkers on the go. Coffee lids are supposed to be removed, and the lid only used to keep the coffee warm.

Personally I think the invention is a massive fail! The lid was full of foam which needed wiping! But I tried it today anyway and thought I would share. Thanks to +Mohamed Hassan​ for the education!
