  1. Your biography full of life and happiness
    What is the thing you want to do and you never did it before ?

    1. That’s a very broad question with so many possible answers haha. There are plenty of things I’d like to do and the list keeps growing. For time being, I’d love to go on 4 to 6 months long travel across South America.

  2. Amazing, I pray, you get what you want, soonest.

  3. Hi I just want to Ask is it easy to obtain Irish visa for Yemenis

    1. Yes it actually is. It’s very direct and easy. Just make sure to have at least 25k riyals in your bank statement. Check out the visa section for Irish Visa and it will give you all the details 😁

  4. You are so inspiring ! Ho wdo you coordinate or plan your trips especially in Africa ?

    1. Thanks! I dont plan much on my trips, I just have an idea of few places I want to visit and just let the day go by. In most African countries I go for Safari trips so everything is arranged by the tour company 😊

  5. Well done Nada, we better explore the world without a stereotypical view or the media’s judgment. I congratulate you for that indeed.
    Although I’m not very “a world traveller” yet we have around 10 countries in common 🙂
    I don’t see France in your list!! Tell me that you forgot to write it :-/
    And in France you should never skip “BORDEAUX”

    Enjoy buddy 😉😎

    1. Hahaha! Thanks! Unfortunately, I have not visited France. I visited only 2 countries in Europe and not planning to go back to any this year. I want to see other countries first 😀

      Will keep Bordeaux in mind for sure! Thanks again!
