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.

If you need professional consulting services in Immersive Technologies or Enterprise Architecture/Strategy/Roadmapping field, let me know (particularly if you need a detailed business/technology review and roadmap for your company) – I’m darn good at it! (I can say so confidently). And if you need me to help you promote your brand or destination, I would be really keen to help!

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.
