I may not have seen all of Scotland, but I do call it my home. Ask me about St Andrews, Dundee and Fife in particular.

Can answer questions about visas, travelling around the north, and the cities of Algiers, Oran and Tlemcen.

Ask maykal a question about Algeria.


Lived in Khartoum and Kassala 2002-2004.

Three trips to Georgia, staying a month each time, and plans to return to study Georgian language. In 2016 I also spent a week in Abkhazia, so can help with questions about that.

Ask maykal a question about Georgia.


Two trips of 2 weeks to Iraqi Kurdistan in 2010 and 2014, so my info may be a bit dated but it's not a well known region.

Ask maykal a question about Iraq.


One of my favourite countries for travelling, I spent 6 months studying Turkish in Istanbul, and have visited several times since then, touring the Black Sea coast, Central and SE Anatolia, as well as places around Istanbul.
