Tromsø 21st January 2015
I have for a very long time wanted to see the Aurora Borealis. During the winter break, me and my Turkish friend Enes planned to visit Tromsø, this is the picture I took on the top of the Fjellheisen tramway.
Hiiuma Island, 14th of August 2015
In August of 2015 a few us class fellows went to camping trip together in the Island of Hiiuma off the the coast of Estonia. It was Pakistan's Independence Day so I thought it fitting to celebrate it in style. Hiiuma is a tiny Island with population just under 10,000. It was fascinating to see a place where almost everyone knew each other and coming as a visitor you'd be immediately recognized as a tourist.
Stockholm January 2015
Sweden for me has always been the land of Lisbeth Salander (from the Millennium series) and Kurt Wallander. I have been fortunate enough to visit Sweden numerous times due to work and it always leaves a mark on me. Here is one pedestrian tunnel in the Stockholm City
The Pyxis of al-Mughira, Louvre 2012
I visited the Louvre museum in Paris in December, 2012. The Pyxis was one of my favorite exhibits from the Islamic Section. I have always been fascinated with the Muslim History of Spain, its a story of love and war spanning over 8 centuries and its cultural influence is still visible there.
Enes, Ramazan 2017
Enes was my flatmate during the first semester of my Master studies. We became really good friends and did a Winter Trip across the Northern and Western Europe in January 2015. Later in 2017 he invited me to Turkey to spend the Muslim Festival of Eid there. Here is us having an Iftar (the fast breaking meal) in Istanbul.
Blue Mosque, 2017
I met Adrian when he was cycling from France to Estonia. We became friends and he invited me to spend Christmas with his family
