Join me on an Adventure through Indonesia and Qatar! 🌏🌴

Hello there,

Are you ready to embark on an incredible journey with me? Pack your bags and get ready to experience the vibrant and breathtaking lands of Indonesia and Qatar!

First, let me introduce you to the heart of this adventure - the National Geographic Photo Expedition, "Colors of Indonesia: Corals, Komodos, and Vibrant Cultures." Joining this expedition, we will explore the enchanting southern archipelago of Indonesia, from the sun-kissed shores of Bali to the hidden wonders of Sarong. Picture yourself surrounded by stunning coral reefs, encountering majestic Komodo dragons, and immersing yourself in the vibrant cultures of this diverse nation. Get ready to see my photography of awe-inspiring moments!

But that's not all! Our journey also takes a captivating twist as we connect with the amazing FAIMER Fellows. In Qatar, we will be welcomed by a Fellow who will graciously host us during our layover. And the excitement continues in the magical city of Yogakarta, where I will conduct a workshop with another FAIMER Fellow at our FAIMER Regional Institute of Indonesia for Educational Development and Leadership (FRIENDSHIP) based at Universitas Gadjah Mada in Yogyakarta. Afterward, we'll have the opportunity to explore the majestic Sultan's Palace and witness the captivating Hindu ballet at Prambanan Temple Compounds, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Prepare to be mesmerized by the rich history and cultural treasures that await us!

Speaking of FAIMER Fellows, let me share a little of my passion for this nonprofit. In 2001, I co-created an international leadership program for health professions educators under the Foundation for the Advancement of International Medical Education and Research (FAIMER). To this day, we have proudly produced over 2000 graduates across 40 countries worldwide. But here's your chance to make a difference! By supporting FAIMER through the purchase of art and gifts from my website, and the 2024 calendar, "Messages of Courage from around the World," you will contribute to their mission of advancing quality healthcare education worldwide and improving healthcare for all. It's a beautiful way to give back!

And here's an exciting challenge – I’m adding two more countries to my ever-growing list! As we venture through this adventure, I'll be ticking off new destinations, exploring the unexplored, and unraveling the hidden gems of the world. Who knows how many more countries I'll discover before I hang up my travel hat?

Follow me on Instagram and Facebook to experience this exhilarating journey with me! With my newly acquired skills, I'll be sharing captivating 15-30 second reels that will transport you to the heart of Indonesia and Qatar. I can't wait to hear your thoughts and comments as I document this incredible adventure.

Have you had the pleasure of visiting Indonesia or Qatar yourself? Share your stories with me!

Lastly, upon my return, get ready to feast your eyes on a brand new gallery on the website. Through my art and photography, I'll bring the vibrant colors, breathtaking landscapes, and mesmerizing cultures of Indonesia and Qatar right to your screen. It's a visual treat you won't want to miss!

Thank you for joining me on this quick jaunt around the world. Your feedback and thoughts mean the world to me, so please don't hesitate to reach out. Let's spread more joy, light, and courage in our world together.

Wishing you endless adventures and remarkable experiences,
