Can I rely on myself:
Traveling makes you more independent.  It helps you to rely on yourself. I learned to rely on myself before I ask for help. Although, asking for help is not a bad thing.

Meanwhile, you will explore the delicious, and not-so-delicious food from around the world instead of eating the same food every day.

My advice is to explore local markets and eateries instead of dining at tourist hot spots where prices are often higher. Try for street food to experience local cuisine at a lower cost.

Nevertheless, you will learn about appreciating the environment.

Why traveling is important:

Traveling is important because it makes you realize how much you don’t know and how close-minded you were living.  Expand your horizon in whatever form it will take you.

Traveling de-stresses us, especially when we put so much pressure on ourselves.

For the business traveler, traveling will improve your management skills in a good way.  What’s more, traveling is not only about your cash flow, it’s about the knowledge you will gain.

You will make memories when you travel without a doubt. Although the wars took away our belongings, but they could not take away our memories.

SIM Cards and Local Plans:

Therefore, instead of using international roaming, consider purchasing a local SIM card or a temporary mobile plan to save on data and your calling expenses.

In conclusion, we will always have stories to share with the people we love.  On the other hand, we have one life so live it.

My Travels

By traveling, people will gain a great amount of wisdom as it did to me.

Wherever I go, I always try to experience each town as locals do. I travel by plane or train. My travels started when I was a child and until after I had two wonderful boys.

Travel helped me to be more social.

Cyprus and Greece
Most importantly, in Cyprus, I like to eat Halloumi cheese with honey, Cypriot Trahana soup should not be missed, and Tahini dip, a taste of a 4000-year-old dessert wine called Commandaria produced in the Troodos mountains, and Greek coffee and swim at Aphrodite’s Rock.  

The island had been inhabited since prehistoric times, and evidence of various civilizations and cultures can be found in its archaeological record starting in the Neolithic (8200-3800 BCE).

In fact, the best fish I had is in Greece and the best Feta cheese. Feta cheese has been produced in Greece for centuries, and its origins date back to ancient times. Don’t forget to go and see the Acropolis. 

For breakfast in Paris, I will have chocolate croissant, French cappuccino, and charcuterie for lunch et oui, je parle le Français. The language of love. La langue de l’amour.  

Ah oui, so much to see French architecture has been renowned for its elegance and innovation throughout history, notably during periods such as the Gothic era with cathedrals like Notre-Dame, the classical architecture of the Palace of Versailles during the Baroque period, and the Art Nouveau movement with influential architects like Hector Guimard in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. 

The Democratic Republic of the Congo
I will have papaya and mango fruit, and Poulet à la Moambé in the Rep. Of The Congo.

Therefore, I lived in the African jungle of Kongolo. It is a town in the Tanganyika Province, located on the west bank of the Lualaba River, the largest headstream of the Congo River.

While French is the official language, I also learned to speak Swahili in Kongolo, and in Kinshasa, I learn to speak Lingala.

In addition to that, I had the opportunity to fly over Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. Without a doubt, this was one of my best experiences.

England and Belgium
Certainly, I had to have the famous Fish and Chips in England, and then, I enjoyed the best Chocolate Côte D’or, French fries, and mussels in Belgium.


When I was in boarding school in Belgium for Christmas, my friends and I took the train from Belgium to Switzerland to learn how to ski.  In spite of this, I fell many times, but I never gave up.  I even skied in one of the mountains on top of the Alps.

How to be a part of the Old West.  We traveled to the Cherokee Park Dude Ranch where the Cherokee Indians traveled through this area in 1849 on their return from the Pacific while searching for a new settlement. Living the life of a cowboy/cowgirl. 

New Orleans
A very delicious red beans and rice dish at the Gumbo Shop in New Orleans also, I suggest you try Beignets at Café Du Monde for breakfast.

For the perfect picnic, and sampling different wines, we traveled to V. Sattui’s stone winery in St. Helena, California.  It is a stunning, must-see Napa Valley destination for ultra-premium wine, artisan foods, picnics, wine & food pairings, weddings and events.

We traveled to Sedona and for the first time, I had French fries from sweet potatoes, and for breakfast, I had toast with jam made from the cactus.

Now I reside in Arizona teaching French, Digital Media Fundamentals, Web design, World History, Economics, and Entrepreneurship.  Live it, you have one life.


In my travels, I learned to love international music. I felt more connected with the people.

When you travel, you will live history, and not only read history in the books of world history.

Lorsque vous voyagez, vous vivez l’histoire, et vous ne vous contentez pas de lire l’histoire dans les livres d’histoire mondiale.  

Especially, I like to say thanks to the photographers from Unsplash, Daryl Bleach, Floyd Kots, and Cyril Mazarin, and to all my new friends I met along the way for making my journeys unforgettable.

Someone I admire Itchy Boots

Her name is Noraly.  Riding motorcycles and traveling the world are the two biggest passions of her life.

In 2018, she quit her job as a geologist, sold her belongings, and left The Netherlands permanently to live on the road.  In other words, not everybody can do what she is doing, but I must say, she is a brave lady.

Her first ride in South Africa:
Her first real ride on her Honda CRF250L  in South Africa!  Riding her motorcycle on her own and staying with local.  Also, she decides to leave the big city of Johannesburg and start riding North for a bit on the first asphalt and the first dirt road on South African soil.

Exchange knowledge:
Overall, we will exchange knowledge with others as we learn from them, too.

Her blog: https://www.itchyboots.com

In the second episode, she is leaving Bulungula, South Africa’s wild coast. She is making her way to a tiny place called Hogsback, in the misty mountains of South Africa. On the way, something unexpected happened, both for her and a group of local girls!  Check it out?

In other words, Nothing Beats Experience
