Isn’t this too true? Meeting new people, people that on the surface seem different than me is the main reason I travel. I love their stories, their families, their lives. It helps me to feel connected!
Today’s Travel inspiration comes from Brunei which I just visited not too long ago, and just as I experienced all over Asia, the people were warm and welcoming! For more Asia posts and pictures follow these links:

Guess where we are headed today?
Living in Germany, we’ve made a few trips to the capital city of Berlin, and we love it! The city is full of museums, good restaurants, and it’s so easy to get around.
We are heading there again this weekend, but if you are interested in what we’ve done before read these posts:

How long does it take to see Brunei?
If you take a look at the sign, “Jalan” means street, so we were walking down Pretty Street. It was pretty!
Unlike places like Doha or Dubai or even Reykjavik, Bandar Seri Begawan (BSB) doesn’t really lend itself as a stopover. You pretty much have to head there on purpose and it’s probably going to cost you.
Traveling around Borneo, it’s hard to pass up a chance to go to the Sultanate of Brunei. A tiny country, located on the eastern coast of the island, it’s one of the [...]

Visiting the Praça do Comércio in Lisbon
What a beautiful square to wander around, and while we were there a camera crew was setting up to shoot. They were aimed at the statue and pointing and talking, but we couldn’t hear anything. Maybe they were shooting, maybe they weren’t. We heard that it was a commercial, but who knows. We tried to stay out of the way waiting for something to happen more than the actors standing on the platform and talking, but we lost patience and left to explore more of the city.
Have you ever come across [...]

A lesson on Islam is open to all at the Jumeirah Mosque
One of the largest and well-known mosques in the United Arab Republics, the Jumeirah Mosque has been doing its part to educate non-Muslims on their religion and culture.
Six days a week, the mosque offers a free tour to anyone who wished to go, see the mosque, and learn more about Islam. It’s free, and if you do not have the right attire, it will be provided for you. The attendants took great care in not only donning a scarf on you, but doing it [...]

The famous floating mosque of Kota Kinabalu
I’ve visited many mosques, because in Turkey mosques have always been open to the public. In fact, I was shocked the first time I visited a Muslim country where non-Muslims were prohibited from entering. As a teacher and avid traveler, I believe that being open and sharing is the way to global understanding, so I do feel it a shame when there are any limitations put on travelers. I’ve also been to cities, such as Dubai, where you can take a guided visit to the Jumeirah Mosque and learn about Islam.

At unbelievable altitudes, the Tibetans lead a harsh life.
Even though it’s a relatively warm day, this photo shows how hard life can be way up high in Tibet. The houses are colorful and ornated, probably to contrast the bleak landscape. Trees only grow in the lower valleys, and most of the year the fields are brown.
Notice the shovels leaning up against the wall. The bricks are covered with dung which is used to heat and light the cooking fires. Yaks are the prized animals and provide almost all the Tibetans need to survive from milk, to meat, [...]
