They told me that they wanted to wear hijabs too, but they were scared that they would have to start wearing plain, baggy clothes in the name of modesty. They asked me how I managed to find modest, fashionable clothing.
I began to give them tips. The number of girls increased, and I created an instagram account to help them out instead. A girl came up to me once and told me how she had always worn the plain black burqa for lack of other options, and that made her very shy in public. She was afraid people would perceive her as subdued or even elderly.

When I travel, I like to think that I am not exploring the places I go to. Travel is different from tourism. Travel is learning about new types of people, different ways of being. When you travel, you realise how small you are, how limited your own way of seeing is, how broad the scope of culture can be.
Real travel is in the people you meet, the insight from conversations you have. Even observing them can bring about profound insight. The people over there are so warm, so welcoming. This, combined with the wonderful food and topography, makes it truly unforgettable. Travel helps with this, it helps us see multiple stories instead of one, unverified story we have of an entire place and people.
