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.
