Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"For me, all of my travels have been unique and special. Even in destinations that I've been to several times, I find unique experiences every time. I like to discover, ask questions, walk a lot, and have a routine of going more a morning in each destination. Probably one of the most powerful experiences I've had was when I scuba dived for the first time in Sharm El Sheckh. The underwater world there was really impressive."
