About Me

I’m a South African; born and living in South Africa.

 

When I’m not at work, innovating, running, canoeing or cycling, I travel.

Jungian Personality Profile – ENTP (mostly, although the E is sometimes an I)

I’ve been fortunate to have traveled to all 7 continents; as a tourist, traveler, backpacker and for business; and I still need to travel more.

The purpose of this blog is to share some of my experiences; reviews of destinations, accommodations and various means of transport; share advice on the best routes and cheapest methods; and show you that traveling is for anyone, with any budget. Being a Muslim my niche is also on halal travel.

Check out my Media-Kit if you would like to work with me.

I have more than 12 years of experience working as a Business Analyst, SAP Banking consultant, Solution Architect and Enterprise Architect, but in September 2013 I quit my full-time salaried job to try something new, on my own. I am currently founding a Mixed Reality startup and offering Digital Business consulting services.

I have also launched Immersive Authority, a site which tracks immersive technology developments and strategies and opportunities to implement. My Mixed Reality startup falls under the Immersive Authority brand. And, being a traveler that looks for destinations with fresh air (but sometimes has to contend with polluted air), I run Pure Air Masks – portable air filtration masks to help travelers and residents breathe wherever they are

I am currently living in South East Asia, working with Chainstack, an enterprise blockchain as a service provider.

Safe Journey!

      Thanks for stopping by Muhammad. I save and pay for my trips, but I’ve also travel on a budget staying at low cost establishments, etc. With cheap accommodation you can really travel longer and go further.
