✧ When the beaches in Turkey are crowded, you climb up higher to catch a view like this! Last year we went there with our fam to enjoy the warm weather, beautiful beaches and yummy food. As we don’t actively take pictures or post anything on our blog when we’re traveling with family or friends, this trip went totally unnoticed here. Here’s a shot Farhang took of one of the most beautiful beaches in Turkey. Ehm can we go back please? ✧ ➵ ✧ Any Turkish followers here? Which part of Turkey are you from? Share some fun facts about that part of Turkey with us and comment below ✧ ➵ #beautifulview #beach #afghancouple #afghans #afghanistan #afghani #traveltheworld #traveljunkie #seetheworld #getoutstayout #openmyworld #Turkey #travelers #chasingadventures #awesomeworldtrip
✧ We were recently asked for an interview what ‘Love’ means according to us. It is something so obvious, yet pretty difficult to describe. It’s got a universally meaning, but can be still so different for each person. You’d have to wait for the interview to read our answer, but for now I would love to know your perspective behind the word ‘Love’ ✧ ➵ ✧ Finish the sentence ‘Love is…’ ✧ ➵ #love #meaningoflove #lovers #soulmates #afghans #afghancouple #aroundtheworld #awesomeworldtrip
✧ New article is up on the blog called “ 15 things I learned at 30 “ Just to get you guys warmed up, here is one of the topics I wrote about; ◦ Pick your battles wisely. As the older sibling and the rebellious teenager that I was, I had to fight for each small piece of freedom I could get. Even now our parents like to tell us what we should or shouldn’t do. And they have that right to a certain point. But some topics are sensitive and I notice I almost immediately jump up to defend myself when those topics come up. Religious and cultural aspects for example are one of those sensitive topics. As an Afghan female, growing up in a household without a male, I had an overprotective upbringing where girls weren't allowed to do much because of what society would think. Also, the older I got, the more questions and doubts I had about Islam. Discussions at home and with family members resulted in them getting insulted and angry at me for being less Afghan or religious. All these years I tried to make the gap between our generation and our parents smaller so we could understand each other better. Although they have changed a lot with time, there are certain things they will never understand. Simply because their generation grew up differently in a whole other timezone with a mindset that was normal back then. Prioritise which battles are worth fighting and which ones you just need to ignore. ✧ ➵ ✧ And there is more about life choices, downsides of Instagram, age, painful self-reflection and much more! So go and get yourself comfy with a cuppa tea and head over to the blog for some reading.

✧ A new year, new game, new chances! Tbh 2018 wasn’t a “highlight” (except for our USA trip) after spending the prior years continuously on the road. But 2019 is going to be different: again we’re going to leap into the unknown ❤️🙈 Leave everything behind and start over somewhere else! Because if you don’t jump, how else would you ever know if you can fly? ✧ ➵ ✧ We haven’t planned out everything quite yet. Because there are too many uncertainties attached to our choices. But as we’ve learned in the past, one always needs a plan B, C and sometimes even a plan Z. When your mind and soul tells you to do something for a very long time, you should not resist it anymore. Sure we also thought about settling down completely, but it just doesn’t feel right for now. While we still have the freedom to live our lives more closely to our hearts and not having the obligations of a mortgage or a secure and stable jobs because of kids, we should stop overthinking this and just go for it! ✧ ➵ ✧Cheers to a new year 🥂🎊 Wishing all of you best of luck with your goals and dreams! Whether that means you’re going to do everything different this year or rather stay exactly the same, whatever makes you YOU is the most important! ✧ ➵ #happynewyear #newgamenewchances #goals #2019 #freedom #leapintotheinknown #afghan #afghani #afghancouple #aroundtheworld #traveladdict #seetheworld #wonderlust #adventurethatislife #travelholic #travelstoke #travelnow #travelislife #roamtheplanet #openmyworld #awesomeworldtrip
✧ Merry Christmas 🎄🎁 to all around the world who are celebrating and a prosperous new year filled with love, health and adventures! We’ll be enjoying the holidays with our loved ones in Switzerland, hoping for a snowy ho-ho-holiday! 😛You guys having a cold or warm Christmas? ✧ ➵ #merrychristmas #holidays #familytime #afghan #afghancouple #awesomeworldtrip
✧ Every explorer knows that feeling. You’ve just landed in a complete new environment. Only locals, no tourists. A place where nature is so rough you feel as if you could get lost forever. Goosebumps. Thrill. This is it you think. Finally away from the crowds. Namibia is one of those places, where you feel you’re road tripping through Mars.✧ ➵ ✧Crazy to think nowadays you have to do your best to find these places. With the rising population and development around the world it will only get more tough to find real remote places. You’re imaging how it would have been back centuries ago. Where the true explorers were leaving home for good to find the outskirts of the (back then) flat Earth. Reaching places they knew they could probably never share with their friends and family back home. One can only imagine how that would have been. Unless you dare to step onto the first one-way flights to extraterrestrial Mars (imagining moms’ face when announcing it as our next trip😂). That is probably the closest we can get to the real explorers of the past...✧ ➵ #namibia #roadtrip #mars #allalone #mothernature #desert #awesomeworldtrip
✧ My love for basically anything related to food is unexplainable. Kinda Joey situation from Friends. I’m always on the look-out for the best food and sweets in each country, obsessively reading reviews online before going to a cafe or restaurant. Haven’t kept a record of which exact food spots are the best, but here’s a list of the goodies that till this day harass me the most in my naughtiest dreams… Here we go! - sweets from Haldiram in New Delhi - thalis in Rajasthan - mangos in India - kunefe in Turkey - Armenian sarma - Portugese egg tarts - Korean fried chicken - Yazdi sweets/cookies in Iran - French macarons - fresh mango/watermelon juices in Thailand - healthy smoothie bowls in Bali - springrolls in Vietnam - bubble waffles in HongKong - Churros in Spain - the brunch scene, Doughnut time, Burch and Purchese & Zumbo in Australia ✧ ➵ ✧ Comment your favourite kinda food/sweets below ✧ ➵ #foodie #yummyinmytummy #delicious #freshfood #sweets #sweettooth #afghangirl #afghans #afghancouple #aroundtheworld #girleatstheworld #awesomeworldtrip
✧ I went to read old blogs on our website recently and came across THE bucketlist I had made many years ago. It contains all places I wanted to see and things I wanted to do during our Awesome Worldtrip. It’s amazing to see how many things we actually ended up seeing/doing after 4 years of traveling. Check link in bio for the blog, I promise it’ll give y’all travelbugs. This proves that if you reeaaaallly want something, you can do it! I’m getting all excited to make new bucketlists and although I don’t believe in ticking boxes, it also kinda gives you motivation to set up new goals once you figure out you’ve achieved your older ones. ✧ ➵ ✧ Ps. My mom is sooo cute and humble, I asked her ultimate travel goals and only places she wanted to go is India, Turkey, Dubai and Venice in Italy. That’s it. It means the world to me to make her wishes come true one by one, our parents truly deserve the best for everything they’ve done for us♥️
Pps. Also, super curious to know what your guys’ ultimate travels goals are. Let me know below 🙈
PPPs. Also I cannot get over this scenic roadtrip in California. Truly one of the best! ✧ ➵ #bucketlist #newgoals #travelgoals #seetheworld #lifegoals #livelife #afghan #afghancouple #aroundtheworld #traveljunkie #exploremore #travelfever #travelbug #adventurethatislife #letsgoeverywhere #wanderlust #roadtrip #USA #California #awesomeworldtrip
✧ We received maaaany questions from you guys on Stories for our second Q&A☺️Do you guys want a youtube video which will be uploaded here as well or should we go LIVE to answer them? I can tell you guys already that this time it’s going to be even more personal as you guys asked about balancing career and family with our traveling lifestyle, key for a good relationship/marriage, about regrets in life, etc. etc. If you forgot to send us questions, you can still comment below ;) Super excited to chat with you guys again ♥️ ✧ ➵ #getpersonal #chitchat #gettoknowusbetter #lifelessons #afghan #afghans #afghancouple #soulmates #awesomeworldtrip
✧ As we didn’t have good experiences in Las Vegas (we almost got hit by a car, got yelled at by someone playing hide and seek in the bushes (wtf) and there just wasn’t much to do except for casinos, drunk people and dodgy types trying to get us into stripclubs), we decided to escape the city and explore the Valley of Fire. And man, so glad we did! Just look at the scenery during the golden hour 🌄Only reason we went to Vegas in the first place was to see what the hype was about and to get some rest in terms of a comfortable bed and a nice hot shower after sleeping in our van for couple of nights. We honestly expected more glam, sophistication, etc, but we found it all to be quite tacky in the end… What are your thoughts about Vegas? Did it live up to your expectations? ✧ ➵ ✧ What actually struck us was seeing so many practicing Muslims walking around the city, I mean this city is all what HARAM stands for: gamble, alcohol and naked ladies 😝 Disclaimer: not hating on anyone and obviously everyone has the right to go anywhere they want, it just didn’t make sense in our heads lol✧ ➵ #valleyoffire #nevada #goldenhour #sunset #afghancouple #afghan #afghanistan #travellers #aroundtheworld #traveljunkie #traveladdicts #mothernature #livelife #traveloften #exploremore #adventuretime #roadtrip #USA #awesomeworldtrip

With my favorite person in my favorite place.

✧ San Francisco is poetry, even the walls rhyme👌🏼✧ ➵ ✧ So our epic roadtrip through the USA has come to an end! If you still remember, we went to the USA to see if it was a country we’d like to live and if so, where exactly! We went to NYC first and flew all the way to California to explore the state and its surroundings. Yes, we fell in ♥️ with America’s charm and the big dreamers living in it. Although we know living expenses in California are ridiculous and finding a decent job to cover all this is almost mission impossible, we are still going to give it a shot! Because there are simply no reasons why we shouldn’t. This means we are going to work our asses off the upcoming years to make it happen! ✧ ➵ #dreams #goals #lifegoals #vision #futureplans #contemplation #afghancouple #afghans #afghanistan #afghani #traveltheworld #traveljunkie #seetheworld #getoutstayout #openmyworld #SanFrancisco #California #travelers #chasingadventures #awesomeworldtrip
✧ There are several things in life that make you feel small and your problems unimportant. Farhang and me were enjoying the views and contemplating about life while we suddenly got aware of the fact that we are constantly worrying about our careers, future, lifestyle, etc. Which isn’t actually important. This is what nature give us ; A moment of realisation of what truly matters. It isn’t that fancy career, fast car or big house. It’s just that moment in which you feel happy with people around you. It awakes us of our daily overdosis of stress, lost priorities, not living in the moment, etc. What do you need for your daily reality check? ✧ ➵ #yoga #zen #realitycheck #contemplation #lifelessons #passionpassport #getoutstayout #adventuretime #traveltheworld #afghan #afghans #afghancouple #yosemite #sunset #goldenhour #roadtripusa #awesomeworldtrip

✧ To be a STAR you must shine your own light, follow your own path and don’t worry about the darkness, for that is when the stars shine the brightest ✧ ➵ ✧ In Yosemite, we wanted to witness the Milky Way so we decided to wait till the sun set. We made ourselves food in our van and waited some more till all the stars rose above our heads. It was freezing and very difficult to stay outside for long, but those couple of minutes under that beautiful sky, making wishes when we saw shooting stars while holding each other tight to stay warm, made it a night to never forget.

✧ In LA you can have the city life and feel like you’re on a holiday at the same time - Isabel Marant ✧ ➵ We were only for three days in LA, so it’s difficult to get a proper view of how life and its people are. Things that did occur to us in our short stay: - loved the creative mindset of its people, hearing conversations about artists in the making, movie- and music scene, innovative start-ups, etc. all passionate about chasing their dreams. - people were super laidback and seemed to enjoy life; working out by the beach, late night dinners and entertainment (theatre, clubs, etc.) - amazing food scene (except for in-n-out burger lol) - the huge difference between rich and poor. Apparently there are 200.000 homeless people in LA. There’s even a district you’re not supposed to go because all of them have set up their tents there. Locals told us many homeless people come to California because of the good weather conditions which makes living on the streets easier. - The city is really gi-gan-tic and there’s traffic everywhere! Especially during rush hour you easily spend 3-4 hours just getting from the city to the south 😬

✧ Who knew this place could be this photogenic? 😍 We were planning to do The Narrows hike which required hiking in the Virgin river ( with water temperatures under 12 deg ❄️), but after many flood warnings that day, we decided to call it off and just enjoy the scenery. How beautifulllll is this seriously? 🙈✧ ➵ ✧ We used to write stories behind the pictures (like what happened that day and how we got there), but since we post everything on Stories these days, I feel like you guys know everything already. Should I still write or keep it visual like we do now? ✧ ➵ #zionnationalpark #fall #prettyseason #fallseason #afghancouple #afghan #afghanistan #travellers #aroundtheworld #traveljunkie #traveladdicts #mothernature #mountainside #mountainscape #roadtrip #USA #awesomeworldtrip
