My story

Hello there! My name is Karim, I am a travel lover and over the last few years, have discovered that travel is not just about down-time, but equally importantly it is a powerful way to learn about the world, about our similarities and about our differences. It helps break boundaries, bridge the divides, it helps nurture a greater understanding of people and cultures of the world. I see myself as a citizen of the world and my aspiration is that we see the world as one global humanity, and come together on the basis of our similarities versus our differences, since many of the “labels” impressed upon us are a function of our socialization.

My Longest Day Ever…

For the record, at midnight tonight I will have had my longest day ever! 46.5 hours of Jan 4th!!!!! Few photos from my morning digs and few from my home for the next 7 days. The white yacht which looks so unassuming is it! Now settled on board with 140 other passengers and relaxing over a late lunch. Got a special package with unlimited WiFi, bar and laundry so now time to just soak in the seas. Service is superb. We are sailing in 2 hours….

“Welcome to Tahiti!”

Nice terrace…anyone for a cognac nightcap? There’s room…24 degrees.

Leaving for Tahiti

This is when my head gets messed up. Left Nouméa this am. Now I leave for Tahiti. It is Jan 4th and I gain an hour and a day and land there on Jan 3rd. 3 hours getting here, 5 hours in transit and 5 hour flight there. Give take. All in all, could have flown Toronto-London-Toronto in same time. Remember I said this was a zigzag trip. Zig east and south, zzzzzzzz for a while and then zag east again. For the next 2 weeks I will be playing island musical chairs, boomerang City! Auckland and Fiji main hubs. Then there’s deja vu, same lounge. When was I here last? P.S. photo: grandma studying Cosmopolitan Nomad card, grandson could give (a) twopence.

Last Day in New Caledonia

When you wake up at 5am to the sound of birds and the soft ripple of the waves, just to catch that sunburst which occurs around 5.15. When the view is not majestic but just filled with beautiful ordinary sights. Today was spent visiting an island called l’escapade, non descript, but people happy and having fun. Today is the last day here. Chilled, breathing it all in. Temperature is perfect.
