I’m Ibtissam, UK based travel writer and content creator.
I have a serious case of wanderlust and I love the outdoors, chasing sunsets and coffee shops.
I created Awakened Voyages to encourage you to step out of your comfort zone and nurture your adventurous side (because we all have one). My itineraries are carefully designed to fit people with busy schedules who are not just looking for a quick getaway to tick off boxes but want an immersive and purposeful travel experience. Whether you are a solo traveller looking to reconnect with yourself or an active family eager to explore the world, you will find a variety of experiences from hiking adventures to road trips to wellness holidays but the emphasis will always be on travelling slowly, letting go of expectations and being enchanted by every moment.
