My travel blog — where will I visit next?

With the new year approaching and vaccines getting around, let’s hope we can leave the pandemic behind as we enter 2021! Hopefully soon we’ll be able to travel again and get back to exploring the world safely as countries will gradually start to reopen their borders.  Being a travel blogger and seeing as I have visited over 85 countries, I am always thinking of new places to discover. I have some new countries on my list to visit (whenever they become safe and available) including South Africa, Russia, Kazakhstan, and several destinations in the region of Central America as well.

How I “reprogrammed” my taste for sugars

A lot of people struggle with giving up sugar, as most people have a big craving for it and are used to the way it tastes in drinks, desserts and such; the so-called “sweet tooth”! Gradually over the span of the last ten years or so, I completely almost cut it out of my diet. I started by psychologically manipulating myself into hating it and slowly cutting it out of the things I eat and drink, such as tea, coffee etc.  In the beginning, I used to drink tea with sugar but I gradually started using less and less sugar.

Hotel Loyalty Programs – How I Benefit from them

A big number of people are missing out on the Hotel Loyalty Programs, as they use third-party websites (booking.com, hotelscombined, trivago etc) to make their hotel reservations.    Over my extensive global travels I have found that the best way to book is to use the hotel or airline’s direct website rather than any aggregator sites, and make use of their loyalty and rewards programs. This is certainly more beneficial over the long run. In the past, I myself was using sites such as Booking.com, Expedia, Priceline and the like who offer you short-term gains in the form in the form […]

Exercises that I currently focus on

Generally, I prefer to exercise my entire body rather than just one area. I don’t fall into the trap of exclusively focusing on visible muscles, as one has to focus on their whole body and have a good balance.  Lately I took a break from working on the larger muscle groups and started focusing more on my core section, or the abdominal area, commonly known as abs and obliques.  There are 4 separate muscles that contribute to your overall abdominal development. Each of them has a different, yet important role to play. They are: ▶️ Transverse Abdominis – this is […]

What I’m currently learning at Stanford

I am currently pursuing an Innovation & Entrepreneurship Certificate with Stanford University. It is an online program that is accessible at any time, and there’s a wide range of course topics to choose any 8 you prefer. I personally found this program to be very useful; as it opened my mind to a lot of ideas about innovation strategies and entrepreneurship, and how to manage them. Being at the heart of Silicon Valley, Stanford has lots of alumni who have become top entrepreneurs and industry experts in the area and come back to be guest speakers in these course, sharing their […]

Entrepreneur I’ve Learn From: Dave Asprey

Dave Asprey is a biohacker and an entrepreneur in Silicon Valley. Other top entrepreneurs there asked him to create biological hacks to improve their mental sharpness. The reason is that most busy founder/managers don’t have the time to exercise for hours and spend a lot of time watching what they’re eating. Therefore, they wanted tricks and tips on how to improve their mental performance and manage their weight without spending too much time. In response, Dave created something that he called “The Bulletproof Diet” to give them exactly what they want, and it became a mega hit all over the […]
