Wanderlust has become such an overused term but there are few who truly embody the essence of the word.
One such wanderer is Fahad Al Shatti. Fahad, who is from Kuwait created his Instagram account @fahadtrips to share his adventures from around the world as well as in Kuwait. Whether it is crossing the canals of Venice in a gondola, admiring Florentine art or revelling in the German countryside, Fahad tries to truly explore every inch of the city he visits. We asked Fahad about his travels and when did his passion for the globetrotting start.
Q. What inspired you to take up travelling?
F: Travelling is a great way to gain experiences and you learn while having fun! It is great to discover different parts of the world and new places that you never visited before, meet new people, learn about different cultures, and try different cuisines.
Q. What's your favourite country that you have visited so far?
F: Every country has its own unique sort of beauty, however, my favourite country to visit in the United States, there are a lot of things to do there and a lot of cities to discover from coast to coast! you will find everything: mountains, beaches, quiet towns, crowded cities, ski resorts, amusement parks, etc..
Q. What would you tell our readers to encourage them to travel and where should be the first place they visit?
F: There are a lot of beautiful places to visit in the world. I would like to say try to travel more and collect memories while having fun! - The first place always depends on its location. Visit any city or country that is close to yours and you've never been there.
Fahad’s travels are inspiring and give a glimpse into the beauty and culture of different places around the world.
