My Travelling Life written by Shama and Birthday Giveaway for you!

The youngest member of Selims Raasta turns 8 today and she is ever so excited about celebrating her birthday in summer for once! We are all looking forward to her beach party, enjoying icecreams, sand and sea, here in sunny Auckland, New Zealand 🙂


I will hand this post over to her now, as she wanted to share something she has been working on. She has in the past enjoyed sharing her love for art and nature and travel art on the blog. I have also written a post about her, and the strength and positivity we have derived because of her.  Eight years have flown by so fast! Just to make sure I don’t make this into a sappy post of my feelings about my kids, I will hand over to her now 🙂

She wanted to do it a bit different this time and made a powerpoint presentation, all on her own, chose the pictures, flags, wrote vivid description of what she remembers, I refrained from correcting anything so do ignore the typos!










Thank for reading her post and as a birthday giveaway to celebrate our bundle of joy and energy, we are giving away 20 promo codes of one of GPSmyCity full-version city walk apps!

GPSmyCity makes popular iOS and Android apps that feature self-guided city walks in over 470 cities around the world.  Each one of these apps contains from a few to over a dozen of self-guided walking tours for a single city, allowing visitors to explore on foot the best of the city at their own pace.

This promo code allows a free download of the app, which normally costs US$4.99 at the App Store.

    I love the fact that Shama’s favourite food involves brussel sprouts! Such an underrated vegetable. We have similar food tastes, haha. This was adorable.

    I love this and her presentation! If she keeps adding to it she’ll have quite a report at the end. Happy Birthday to Shama and safe travels to you all.

    Aw, it’s so fun hearing children talk about their travels… what they’ve learned, what they loved.
