TRAVEL & ME

Thank you for visiting my blog! I’m Suraiz, I’ m twenty something with restless feet and a desire to see the entire world. I created this space on the internet for people like me who want to be inspired to travel and live a more adventurous life.

Travel is my biggest passion. To me, travel is an opportunity to unwind, enjoy a different rhythm and to explore new places and cultures. It is also about meeting the locals and fellow travelers, and sharing views, ideas and experiences. For me, travel is a never-ending source of adventure and inspiration.

Preparing for a trip is the start of any travel adventure. I enjoy researching my destination before my departure.Travel is the best kind of education so go get lost, even if it’s just outside your own doorstep!.

TRAVEL DIARIES

Germany

Germany, in many ways the heart of Europe. A place of great music, literature, art, and philosophy.It’s huge, diverse, and amazing.There’s a lot to see — and it’s all worth seeing.

Germany’s history is also one of its biggest draws: reminders of World War II, the Berlin Wall, and monuments to its great writers, composers, and philosophers.

As I backpacked through Europe, I knew I wanted to make a stop in Berlin & Frankfurt in Germany. I have always been intrigued by the German’s mannerisms, cleanliness, punctuality and their organization.

Nevertheless, Berlin was incredible and I created some great memories there.

Belgium

Belgium is a travel destination made for history buffs and chocolate addicts. Though the nation is small, it plays a big part in the world’s history.

Visiting Belgian capital will definitively be an awesome experience.I basically spent the whole day eating! I mean, you can’t go to Belgium without eating waffles, chocolate, fries, stew, and so many other amazing foods!

Walking through the city feels like magic. String lights hang above the cobblestone streets, and the plaza of the Grand-Place is striking..

Today Brussels is one of the most important places in the world and this bustling metropolis keeps developing every day.

The Netherlands

The Netherlands, also known as "Holland" & "Home of the Dutch" is a country known for Tulips, Windmills, Cheese and Canals!.

Amsterdam is the capital of the Netherlands, and one of the most popular tourist destinations in all of Europe. The city is well-known for its past, the elaborate canal system and the architecture of their iconic, narrow houses.

Amsterdam offers way more than just cheap thrills! You can wander the sidewalks (by foot, or more popularly, by bike) and explore the Old Centre, Red Light, Dam Square, Grachtengordel and Museum districts.

Amsterdam is such a magical, beautiful city. I absolutely loved every second I spent there and I cannot wait to go back.

image

United Kingdom(UK)

The capital of the United Kingdom is a thriving multicultural metropolis.For years I dreamed of visiting London. It was always on my top-places-to-visit list.Well, I finally got to visit this amazing city.

I Wander through St. James park, visit Westminster Abbey, visit London eye, enjoyed red phone booths on the streets and the classic double decker buses, and take a ride up the River Thames.

The contrast between the spectacular historic sights and the lively cultural scene makes a visit to London an exciting adventure.

London's incredible shopping, endless sights, friendly locals, and vibrant nightlife offer something for every kind of traveler.

image

Switzerland

Switzerland isn't just beautiful—it's actually outrageously. It has towering mountains that are covered in snow no matter what season, crystal-clear lakes, quaint little villages and crystal clear lakes.

If you’re looking for an adventure beyond anything you could imagine, then Interlaken is your place. Known as the adventure capital of the world, this small alpine town offers many adventures.

I spent the days, flying through the sky(Paragliding), taking in the beautiful views of the Alps, and just embracing life.

Switzerland is definitely a place you want to put on your bucketlist and if you only go to one country in your lifetime, make it this one.

image

Italy

Italy is a must-visit country and is one of the most-traveled destinations in Europe. There are so many highlights in this beautiful country .

Milan. The fashion capital and commercial heart of Italy has always been at the top of my list for its rich history and architecture.

Rome is the perfect getaway! Especially for culture seekers, foodies, and the hopeless romantic. But Rome is HUGE and it can be quite overwhelming.

Venice is nothing short of amazing. A city built on water, with canals instead of highways and gondolas instead of cars. Venice remains true to its history, culture, and architecture and refrains from modernism. My experience in Venice was absolutely magical.

image

France

When it comes to tourism in France, Paris is at the top of many travelers’ bucket lists. Name a more romantic city than Paris. I’ll wait.

The Eiffel Tower has long been an icon of Paris and one of the first things that come to mind when people think of the city (even France).

The city is full of incredible history, architecture, art, charm, distinct cuisine and literature which all paint a picture of absolute romance. Whether you have a day, a week, or a month to explore, Paris is a travel experience in its own.

Everything we think of that’s romantic can be found in Paris, even down to the accents and the street music. For any travelers looking for a place to feel warm and happy, there’s nowhere like Paris.

image

Austria

Austria is stunning. The almost heavenly landscape of hills, snow-capped peaks, and endless expanse of natural beauty was made famous by The Sound of Music.

When I first started planning this trip to Europe, Hallstatt was one of the first places added to the list of places I wanted to go to. There are so many beautiful photos I have seen, I just had to go and see it in real!

Hallstatt is all about the views. Hallstatt itself is not very big, so an hour spent wandering around pretty much covered the whole town.

I explored the cute little streets, looking lovely architecture , browsing the small little shops and enjoyed out time in Hallstatt. It really is worth visiting.

image

Norway

Norway is stacked with superlatives — it's the most mountainous, most scenic, and most prosperous of all the Scandinavian countries.

Norway would be complete without an exploration of the fjords. Cruising over Norangsfjorden is heart-stopping fairytale scenery. Norangsfjorden is Famed for its deep blue waters, towering mountain peaks, and abundant waterfalls.

Tromsø (Norway) is a real Arctic winter wonderland. If you come in summer, you’ll discover that the sun never sets here; and in winter there is a long polar Night, Northern Lights, and so, so much more…

Ah, No words. Norway Just simply captures my heart!

image

Turkey

Turkey which is located both in western Asia and Southeastern Europe.The modernity, culture, religion, and architecture truly shows a country rich in history.

Istanbul is one of my favourite cities in the world. I love the mix of old and new, the traditional and the trendy.

Watching the magical Blue Mosque from afar, walking through the colorful bazaars, the sweetness of their turkish delights, it all makes it feel like a dream.

Too much to see and too little time is a common catch cry from those returning after a visit to this wonderful city.

image

New Zealand

It’s simple; New Zealand stole my heart. The diversity of the country brought me to my knees and ignited a lifelong love affair with the country.

New Zealand’s name inspires pictures of mountains, glaciers, forests, pristine lands, and lots and lots of sheep.

The country is the adventure capital of the world. Hiking, skydiving, caving, bungy jumping, skiing — everything here is geared towards getting you outside and doing something incredible.

I loved all my visits to New Zealand. The people are friendly, the country is beyond beautiful (I can see why the shot Lord of the Rings there). It’s one of the best countries in the world. I’ve never heard anyone not love their time in the country.

image

Australia

Australia is one of the most amazing travel destinations in the world. When you come to this incredible place, there is no end to the amazing spots you can visit. Australia is a land that offers natural wonders.

Melbourne is such an incredible place to be! No wonder it’s been voted one of the most liveable cities in the world.Experiencing the world’s one of the most scenic long drive through Great Ocean Road will surely linger long in your memory.

Sydney, the capital of Australia is one of the world’s most eminent vacation destinations.Sydney’s Harbor Bridge and Opera House are iconic man-made wonders.

Australia is so massive and magnificent, the possibilities for adventure are limited only by our imagination.

image

Russia

Russia is one of those countries that I have always wanted to visit – I think it’s because it takes up so much space on maps, yet is so very much unknown to me and many others!

Moscow, Russia’s beating heart and capital, known for its history and rich cultural traditions with old-style Russian churches.

Saint petersburgh is Russia’s soul, The most beautiful and romantic city in Russia has a lot to offer, from top world art museums and stunning royal residences to nightlife, shopping and incredible atmosphere.

As your vacation comes to an end, the trip to Moscow and St. Petersburg will have left you unique and memorable travel experience , to look at again. As you think back on the days you have just lived. you will not even notice the plane taking off..

image

South Korea

South Korea is a favorite destination of many travelers. It really exceeded my expectations of being ‘just another unique country to visit’ to ‘wow – I loved everything about it and can’t wait to go back!’ .

It’s amazing how quickly Koreans have been able to rebuild their country into the thriving, first world sensation it is today.

I visit SEOUL & Pyeongchang and Seoul is being my favorite. SEOUL is such an dynamic, fast-paced metropolitan city. It’s a great balance of old and new, as you see both skyscrapers and Korean traditional houses.

I’m so impressed at how lovely everyone was and how clean the cities were! The food here is incredible, I could honestly eat Korean food all day.

image

Japan

It has always been my dream to go to Japan. I can’t believe I only went! It is just such an amazing country.

Incredible mountain scenery, one of the world’s most chaotic & quirky cities (Tokyo), a long history of culture & tradition, and of course incredible cuisine with authentic sushi on offer everywhere you turn.

I love how clean and orderly everything is but its all still deeply rooted in tradition and nature. Ahhhhh–I love Japan!

I really had an awesome time. I went through Osaka-Kyoto-Tokyo in four days and felt like I needed an extra week to really be able to explore and enjoy the place as I Wish. Of course, I had the best time, but it was so short.

image

Malaysia

Malaysia is a unique country where you get to see different ethnicities coming together, living in harmony for the most part.

Holidaying in Malaysia’s capital Kuala Lumpur is like going into sensory overload.It was especially exciting as it was my first time in Malaysia

If I had to describe the city in 6 words, it would be: skyscapers, greenery, shopping malls, no dogs (at all) & clean.

For me, the Petronas Twin Towers is the most impressive and coolest must-see thing in KL! It is especially stunning at night with hundreds of lights and the water fountain in KLCC Park lights up in different colors and dances to the tones of the music.

image

India

One does not just simply can't visit India and pass up seeing the infamous Taj Mahal.It also known as the "Crown of Palaces" the symbol of "Love" and the "Pride of India" is a dream of many to visit.

It is one of the best monument in the world.I've seen it in the books, dreamed about it for years and I finally see right in front of my eyes. Very emotional moment.

I doubt there are new words that can describe the beauty and majesty of this extraordinary building. Its history, its architecture and its beauty truly a miracle!

Just what you'd expect from a wonder of the world! A truly great place to visit!

image

Singapore

If I could only choose 4 words to describe Singapore, they would be : spotless, sophisticated, efficient but expensive.

If you’re flying into Singapore straight from the US or Europe, it may at first feel like you have not traveled very far at all. On the surface, it is perhaps the most “non-Asian” of all Asian countries.

During my short visit to Singapore, I’ve visited Merlion park and Sentosa Island. The Merlion statue is the icon of Singapore & has some history! A walk around this area gives you an absolutely terrific view of the Marina Bay Area and other Singaporean landmarks.

Singapore is Fantastic & vibrant.I love greenery and Singapore is really very green. The country is really neat, clean and beautiful.

image

Thailand

A visit to Thailand surely will linger long in your memory, with its abundance of breathtaking scenery and superb hospitality.

Krabi remains the perfect destination for those seeking relaxation and adventure with its protected bays, white sand beaches, crystal clear water, coral reefs and caves.

If you’re young, wild and free , Koh Phi Phi is where YOU need to be.The plunging cliffs, covered with lush, dark green vegetation, sprinkled white by the crashing waves and accompanied by the soundtrack of tropical birds feels like an unreal scene from Jurassic Park.

Everything in Thailand is dirt cheap. You would not want to leave this paradise. At least I haven’t felt like leaving yet.
