I love the idea of travelling and getting to know cultures and customs of different countries. Being born and raised in Amman, I like to invite people to be exposed to my country’s traditions and customs, which is rich with varieties of historical and archaeological sites, as well as a very exciting night life! I believe travel broadens perspectives and connects people from all around the world. It gives me great pleasure to plan fun-filled trips for enthusiastic eager travelers in my beloved country; Jordan.

How did you get involved in travel?

"Travelling to different countries got me interested in the tourism field, visiting museums and famous attractions in other countries, inspired me to share what my country has to offer in return."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"One of the most exhilarating trips for me was the HOG (Harley Owners Group) Lebanon tour, cruising the country from north to south, with challenging rocky roads, passing through cosy little villages, while enjoying breathtaking views of Lebanon’s Cedar trees, ending each day with fun parties and entertainment!"
