I’m a South African; born and living in South Africa.
When I’m not at work, innovating, running, canoeing or swimming, 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.
Continents / Countries I have visited:
South Shetland Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula
- South Africa
- China (mainland and Hong Kong)
- Occupied Palestinian Territory
- Saudi Arabia
North and Latin America
- Puerto Rico
- United States Virgin Islands
- Cozumel (Mexico)
- Cayman Islands
- Turks and Caicos Islands
- New Zealand
- France and Reunion Island (overseas department of France)
- Isle of Man
- Russian Federation
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.

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 am currently living in Johannesburg, EA consulting (remotely during Lockdown Level 1) to a monetary authority, and preparing for the launch of sharedtrust.app
