Crossing boarders with Visa Middle EastLike0

Everywhere you want to be.

That’s really something to think about.

If I could list the places of everywhere I wanted or want to be… it could maybe take a lifetime.

 

Not too long ago, I got approached by Visa to team up with them and use Travel Junkie Diary as a platform to showcase everyone’s travel images and experiences. The campaign is build around to focus on real people across the world, travelers planning their journey, those who are already experiencing the exhilarating moments abroad and those who have just returned and possibly planning another one.

Travelers, dreamers and those who just really want to share with others their experience. It’s about real life and that is why I jumped to the opportunity to work with Visa Middle East. Visa is everywhere you want to be.

#NotATourist was born for the lovers of hidden gems. In whatever part of the world you are. Crossing boarders, the little places that make it special. What you deserve and what you can afford. #NotATourist could be your luxury moment or your hipster lifestyle, the road less traveled.

The NotATourist campaign is designed to inspire travel beyond the regular tourist sites to savour truly local experiences that are the essence of making a destination unique. The campaign is poised to help travellers explore destinations as local inhabitants – not as tourists – by providing local knowledge using crowdsourced digital content that is showcased on Visa’s NotATourist website and the Visa Explore mobile app. NotATourist also offers travellers a platform to describe the many facets of a destination by sharing their own images, videos, posts and comments, making them ambassadors or tour guides of their favourite travel spots.

When? For two months. I invite you to show me YOUR travel place. Your diary. Your experience on instagram or twitter, using the hashtag #NotATourist

Some articles will also contain #NotATourist tips you share, advices, locations etc.

Whether its your safe place, a fun place, a happy place, where you first fell in love and even where your favorite memory is. #NotATourist is a personal moment and I would love you to share it with me.

  • Shinjuku Garden is a 15 minute drive from @ritzcarlton Tokyo. It's one of the most popular gardens for the Cherry blossoms. Three different styles have been incorporated in the design of the garden: Japanese Traditional Garden, English Landscape Garden, and the French Formal Garden. They are amongst the best remnants of the Meiji era. ---------------------------------------------------#TravelwithTJD #RCMemories #hellotomorrow
  • We'll always find our way back to each other... 💫 ---------------------------------------------------

  • Last night, I took a 9 hour direct flight from Dubai to Narita airport in Tokyo with @emirates on the A380. I had planned on sleeping throughout the entire flight but ended up watching one movie after another with Kaiseki cuisine and a bento box! It's my first time in Japan and I've noted all your recommendations! #TravelwithTJD

  • The best way to laugh... when you are laughing so hard...You can laugh till you cry, or lose your breath, but the deepest laugh is so physical that it can cause all your stomach muscles to get tight. That's what I'm taking with me forever from this episode of #TravelwithTJD @gili.lankanfushi

  • It's pink full moon tonight. Everything constantly changes and we all have a desire to pull away from the world and sometimes from each other... So tonight, at the peak of the moon, let go of any attachments that no longer belongs to you ... #TravelwithTJD @gili.lankanfushi
