The most romantic entrance in Bali!

  Last month when I was in Bali, I stayed at the beautiful Anantara Resort in Uluwatu. This resort had the most beautiful entrance and I just had to take some photos there. It seemed like the perfect location to shoot wedding photos, the giant stairs and huge pots of beautiful colorful flowers looked stunning! It was quite hot during the day but it was definitely worth the photos.

My stay + review in Uluwatu, Bali

  I fell in love with this part of Bali, it’s so much more quiet and peaceful compared to the busy streets of Ubud and Seminyak. I’ve never been to Lombok (an island next to Bali) but judging by the pictures and videos I’ve seen, Uluwatu reminds me a lot of it. The empty beaches, high cliffs and huge waves were the perfect scenery to end my trip.

My stay in Ubud, Bali

  Last month I traveled to Bali for the first time and I had an amazing time! I traveled to different places within the island but my first stop was in Ubud. This area of Bali is known for its greenery and huge rice fields. The hotel I stayed at in Ubud was the Chedi Club Tanah Gajah. This property was built by a well respected Indonesian architect and art collector: “Hendra Hadiprana”. It once used to be his private residence but a few years ago he turned it into a resort and it has the most authentic Indonesian atmosphere you’ll ever find.

Exploring Bodrum

During our recent trip to Turkey with Turkish Airlines, one of the places we traveled to was Bodrum. It was my first time in Bodrum and it exceeded my expectations. I always thought of it as very touristy and commercial. I enjoyed every single moment in Bodrum and I wish we had stayed longer. It’s so beautiful, there’s a lot to do & see, the food is amazing and the people were super friendly. The coastline of Bodrum is stunning, we were there during low season so luckily it wasn’t too crowded.

Najla Kaddour in Sunny Amsterdam

Quick trip to my beloved Amsterdam

Amsterdam is incredibly beautiful when it’s sunny. I was lucky enough to be there just in time for Cherry Blossom season. Having lived in Amsterdam almost all my life, I never realized that the city has so many cherry blossom trees. I only realized this now after not living there anymore. Having said that, it was much colder than I expected/wished. What did I get up to during this short trip? Shopping, cycling around the city, eating good food and catching up with friends and family.

Traveling to turkey with turkish airlines

Amazing first day in Turkey with Turkish Airlines

During my first day in Turkey I’ve been blown away! I was invited by Turkish Airlines to visit Turkey and explore some of the most beautiful places here. Ryadh has also joined me on this trip which makes it even more exciting! It’s not my first time in Turkey however, it is my first time in the Province Muğla. Words can’t even describe how incredibly beautiful this part of Turkey is, I’m blown away! I took SO many pictures during this trip, more than any other trip I’ve ever been to. There was just so much beauty everywhere and I felt like I had to capture it all.

Tumblr Thursday: Summer feelings

It’s officially Summer which means that it’s going to be SUPER hot in the UAE. It has its good and bad sides, the good side is that it’s beach season again and the downside of it is that it can get really hot which is unbearable here. I’m currently planning my summer vacation and I got a bit inspired on Tumblr by all the beachy and summer posts so I’m sharing some of my favorite photos here. Like always, you’ll find these images individually on my Tumblr page!

Recap of my birthday week

Last Tuesday (28th of March) it was my birthday, whoop whoop! I kind of spread out my birthday celebrations over the entire week because Ryadh and I both had some work responsibilities so we couldn’t really celebrate on the day itself – however, I did enjoy all the other days. we did a bunch of different things, the weekend prior to my birthday we went for a quick getaway to Abu Dhabi and the weekend after my birthday, Ryadh surprised me with a helicopter tour over Dubai and it was AWESOME!!

Photo Diary: Phuket, Thailand

I really love Thailand, I could visit it every year without ever getting bored of it. It’s so beautiful, the food is amazing and people are genuinely so nice. Last week, Ryadh and I went to Phuket for a Muay Thai trainings camp. I’ve been doing Muay Thai (Thai boxing) for about 5 years now and it’s one of my passions but I’ve never really trained properly in Thailand so we thought, it’s about time we do. Thai boxing is a very intense work out itself but training outdoors in the heat and with the humidity was suicidal!
