If you're looking for the frenetic, the jangling, the adrenaline-filled tales of so much modern travel writing, you've come to the wrong place. To travel with Rumaizah Abu Bakar is to voyage into a world of the quiet and understated, a place where wonder unfurls in fine detail under a gracious and appreciative eye.
Author of Savage Harvest (2014 NYT bestseller)
