Middle East & Africa

Welcome to the Middle East & Africa!

We realise you are not actually in the region right now, but at least you are thinking about visiting. That’s is the first step, you know?

We lived for 2.5 years in the Middle East ourselves, so if you read our content from there you should keep that in mind. The culture can take a little bit of getting used to, but once you do, you’ll realise that your existing view of the region might not be that accurate.

This part of the world receives a lot of negative media attention, and many people we speak to are concerned about safety. Let’s just say this upfront: There is absolutely nothing to worry about. You can visit most of the countries in the Middle East & Africa without being any more diligent than back at home.

If you don’t believe us, you’ll just have to go see for yourself! Choose your destination below. And know that if you have any questions about travelling in the region, feel free to reach out to us on your social media channel of choice. We’d love for you to have an amazing trip to the Middle East or Africa!
