Siraj Rajie, a qualified biochemist, international marketer, a general knowledge genius (better known as a ‘know it all’); wait this is not a tinder profile! I met Siraj a few years ago through a mutual friend, his now become my uber driver, doctor (I use the term loosely), wingman, personal photographer and most importantly my best friend. See Siraj and I share this insane passion for travelling the world, his started post UCT when he took a gap year to work on a cruise liner and get a free ticket to discover the unknown gems of this world. Since we became friends we started doing these crazy fun trips together, now we are completely obsessed. We choose a destination, he plans it, I show up and look good- his so lucky to have me!
Siraj is an adrenalin junkee, I swear he has 9 lives (think he has like 3 left), he always pushes me to do the most insane things like scuba dive in Coral Island, Thailand (without a scuba license), swing over rice fields in Bali, four wheel the sand dunes of Namibia, the list goes on. our vacations are never short of adventure and disagreements – a real big brother.
One of his best traits include and the reason I keep him around his insane ability to plan the most amazing vacations- flights, itinerary, activities – with our champagne taste and beer budget, he always seems to plan the most economical trips to some of the most lavish destinations. His incredibly organized, it’s annoying- from maps to insurance he always has our travel party and I covered. Never fear, when Siraj is near.

Every country has its own natural beauty in many forms, whether it be cultural, geographic, heavenly or just a plain smile, you will find it or we will show you.
