Hi there, my name is Annika Khumalo, and welcome to my blog!

I am originally from cape town, South Africa. I work as a web developer, and I’m glad to say I quite like my job. But on my days off, I like to pack my bags and head on an adventure to discover new places and meet new people. I have travelled for nearly five years now, and have a lot of stories that I want to share. From my first camping trip in the Alps to getting lost in the streets of Italy, TovisitSocotra.com will feature all my stories and the little hacks that I have picked along the way.

About my blog

I have had my fair share of adventures, and each place that I have visited has taught me something new. But, one of my fondest memories is of the time I travelled to Socotra. Socotra is a tiny island located in the Arabian sea and is officially a part of Yemen.


With its gorgeous beaches and vast deserts, it is one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited. The people here welcomed me into their homes and treated me as one of their own. The memories that I made here will stay with me forever. So, when I decided to start the blog, Socotra was the first thing that came to mind. And that is why I decided to name the blog TovisitSocotra.

What’s next?

I usually like to travel solo. You will most likely find me wandering the streets or navigating through the back-alleys with my camera. The blog will provide you an inside look at different destinations and exciting places most traveling guides won’t tell you about. I’m interested in a wide variety of cultures and countries, so the blog will not be focusing on one particular destination or topic.

Travel planning can be exhaustive and isn’t always cheap. So, that is why I like to focus on good value travel, which means getting the most out of what you spend. Throughout my trips, I have picked up a few handy tips that could help you better plan your trip, and make the most out of it. Planning a short road trip with your friends or a solo trip overseas? TovisitSocatra.com will provide you with all the little hacks to make your journey even more perfect.

I hope this blog inspires you to get started on your very own adventures. So, get ready to get lost with me!
