We are back from a really awesome trip to #Taiwan. In hindsight, delighted that we picked Taiwan, instead of the more common places that Indians typically go to.

Noticed a lot of things that struck us as unique in this trip, so here is a compilation #PPinTaiwan (1/n)
(2/n) How did we choose Taiwan? @AirAsia was running a sale last August when Preethika noticed a good deal, and in a spur of the moment decision, we decided to go there. Yes, the flight tickets were bought 9 months ago. #PPinTaiwan
(3/n) Firstly, getting a visa to Taiwan is pretty easy, especially if you have had a US, UK, Schengen etc visa in the last 10 years. Yes, even if it is expired, it is fine. More details here: passingports.com/taiwan-visa-fo…
Thanks to this, visa for the both of us was free #PPinTaiwan

1-The 2'nd tradition that is still done in every Saudi house: Is Bakhoor (incense)
#SaudiArabia #Traditions #HabitsCustoms #Travel #tourism #MiddleEast #Love #loyality #0ud #perfume #natural 🇸🇦🇸🇦🇸🇦
2- Saudis love incense and consider it a kind of generosity. They burn oud and other kinds of incense to perfume their guests, themselves, clothes, and houses!
3- The most preferred incense is oud which is brought from India, Thailand, Cambodia...etc. Saudis burn oud to show their guests they are welcomed and they try to use the best kind of oud for guests!

I feel compelled to share a few #travel tips in a thread if anyone's interested✈️

I travel about 150,000km/100,000mi annually

Advice for destressing travel day, and optimizing your trip end to end... etc.

Inspired by: @thepointsguy @darrenmurph @ZachHonig
It's worth it to spend an extra $30-$50 to fly an airline you like, treats you with dignity, and earns you miles worth something.

I used to think I was a snob for saying I wouldn't fly WOW as a speaker. It's not. Arriving happy is smart & has high ROI.
I personally prefer @FlyAirNZ & @AlaskaAir. Neither pay me to say that, but I pay to fly on their birdies often. I value legroom, overall experience, and quality of cheese onboard. Ambiance is also worth something when you fly a lot. Both get it.

About four or five years ago I traveled on assignment to the Azores, a volcanic archipelago off the coast of Portugal, and purchased a clay cooking pot in San Miguel. I finally decided it’s time to use it, so today I’ll be documenting the process for how to season it.
I’ve never actually seasoned an unglazed clay pot from scratch before and am figuring this out using advice from the internet and @davidleite. The first step is to immerse it in water for several hours. #claypot #cooking #cookware
A correction: this pot is actually from the Azorean island of Terceira. It was made by Olaria de S. Bento who I was told is one of very few people still producing pots like this by hand. #azores #claypot #terceira tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Rev…

I keep being asked what #Dickens would have made of #Brexit. Charles & Catherine Dickens took their family to live in #Genoa, #Italy for a year (in 1844-1845) – something Brits will no longer be able to do after 29 March. #travel
Before moving to #Italy, Charles #Dickens employed Antonio Gallenga, a political #refugee from #Parma who had migrated to #London, to teach him Italian. In #Brexit Britain, Gallenga would no longer be allowed to work legally.
#Dickens wrote a #travelogue about his year in #Italy. ‘Pictures from Italy’ details the family’s travels through #Europe to their new home in #Genoa, & Dickens' #travels around the country. In #Brexit Britain Dickens would no longer have the right to work in another EU country.

Born & raised in #Fanar #Lebanon, a tiny country in the middle east with a lot to offer. I always had a positive outlook on life maybe because of the culture or values🤷‍♀️.
If you don't know #Lebanon or a #lebanese then you should start mingling 🤣

I grew up surrounded by a loving, joking & tough type of family that always support each other even amidst fighting. You can imaging being 4 kids in different age groups can cause a lot of fights growing up 😂 #siblingsfight #family #VoicesIWS
@IWS_Network
I have my issues🤷‍♀️! I always wanted to prove myself & make my family proud(2nd child). A pressure that was just in my head; they were always proud of us. I wanted to grow up to be a doctor or an army officer like my dad. Let's just say I changed my mind! #VoicesIWS @IWS_Network

As a child, how would you have liked moving schools in new cities with different cultures every 2-4 years?

There's been so much hype about #Zanzibar, but at the same time, a few people weren't particularly thrilled. Had to go find out for myself ,so some friends and I planned a trip. What I think? Top rating for beaches, good food, so much to see, history. Read this thread... #Travel
From #DaresSalaam, you have the options of flying or going by ferry to #Zanzibar. On the other hand, you could fly directly there. We spent a few days in Dar, then we went by ferry...it cost $35 per person for economy and $50 per person for VIP. We travelled in the VIP section.
It takes 1hr30mins to get to Zanzibar by ferry. It could take longer when it's turbulent. The hotel we stayed in was an hour away from stone town. We stayed in Nungwi which is North of Zanzibar. #Travel #Africa #Tanzania #holidays

Good evening, #entrepreneurs! Let us discuss this week's #GEMChats on #startups and #disruptors to the #tourism industry.

Feel free to #RT, reply and engage with us as we go on with this thread.
The answers to the #poll indicates that most of you feel the biggest gamechanger to the #tourism industry in this #Industry40 is the rise of low cost airlines followed closely by travel accommodations #startups like @Airbnb and @agoda.

Well, you aren't wrong there!
Low cost airlines #democratise travel for everyone. As @tonyfernandes puts it in @AirAsia's tagline: "Now Everyone Can Fly".

Flying had been considered a luxury accessible only to the middle class and well-heeled (sic) - Jack Yu writes at linkedin.com/pulse/now-ever…

The first trip abroad that I paid for, was to #Malaysia and #Singapore. I've never understood the average Nigerian's obsession with "Jand" and "Yankee". So, as soon as I could afford to travel abroad, I chose somewhere exotic. #Travel #TravelBae
When I was growing up, I had a strong image of who I wanted to be in life. I wanted to be exposed and have distinct encounters. I wanted to explore unusual things and meet unusual people. #TravelBae
#Singapore & #Malaysia did that for me. I met people I wouldn't ordinarily connect with and listened to them talk about their society and daily lives. I returned from the trip knowing there was a world bigger than #Nigeria. There were people with national problems too. #TravelBae

I took this photo in #HurstbourneTarrant, England. It reminded me extremely powerfully of the door into Archenland, "The Horse And His Boy". And it's great in its own right.

OK, now we get onto what I wanted to do for y'all this late evening.
Namely, hoodoos! If you do, hoodoo.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hoodoo_(g…
a.k.a. tent rock, fairy chimney or earth pyramid. All these photos are mine or with my camera by someone else, 2013, remote area of #Tanzania.
No hoodoo, but in which you see me, following the local guide, to go see hoodoos. Remote area of #Tanzania, 2013. I was the only foreigner there. A couple of Tanzanian tourists too, but srsly infrequented.
This is a very well-camouflaged praying-mantis I found along the way. The area is semi-arid to quite arid, so its coloration is very well-done.
