  • Description

    Syrian studying gastronomy in istanbul, i grew up in an modern muslim family traveling from country to another in the middle east regarding my family work. Meeting different cultures upon my studies grew my experiences up and raise my awareness towards being optimistic and open minded as well as understandable to different traditions and beliefs. I am a foodie person in love with flavors and like to expand my knowledge in cooking styles and techniques. I like to record my life and share it with family and friends and keep memories with me. 2 years ago i fall in love with traveling after being in austria with couple of friends. After that all my mind was up towards how can i do it. Now i am here :)
    My country unfortunately is in war for 5 years. However, i don't feel that can stop me or anyone from being happy and experience life. Hopefully one day i will be able to return back to my country and help building it back again.
