Home » Muslim Travel Experiences » “But It Was Not My Regular Backpacking Trip, My Mission Was To Confess My Feelings For Her…” – Muhd Syafiq Bin Idris

T: A short bio about yourself? 3-4 lines that best describe you, what you do for a living and so…

M: My full name is Muhd Syafiq Bin Idris, 28 years old.  I am now a Sales Manager at Jeju Muslim Travel. I quit Engineering a year ago and focus on my own travel and tour business.

T: Where have you been?

M: I have spent few months in England, Scotland, 6 months in New Zealand for working and travelling, Australia, Turkey, been travelling overland from Kuala Lumpur to China border, Korea, Egypt and etc.

T: What was your best trip among all the trips? Tell us a little about your Scotland trip

M: My best trip is definitely when I went to Scotland in 2009. For me, it was a fate, a destiny, because that was when I met my wife. I was 21 years old then, I saw this girl online through a social network called Friendster. She was living in Glasgow, Scotland. I sent her a friend request and she accepted. I had to admit though when I first saw her photo on Friendster, I fell in love. I started to stalk her every day. Long story short, the following year I decided to go to Scotland. But it was not my regular backpacking trip. My mission was to confess my feeling to her. So, I came up with a plan. One month before the trip, I asked if she could host me for one week. Fortunately, her parents approved and I stayed in her family’s living room for a week sleeping on a couch. I swear, it was the best Hotel I have ever stayed. I spent only seven days in Scotland but with a little courage, I stole her heart. That is why Scotland and my wife were the best thing ever happened in my life.

T: What did you learn about yourself during your most memorable trip?

M: Dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them.

T: What’s your favourite/dream travel destination and why?

M: It is my dream to build my own Campervan and travel for a couple of years.  My wife and I always wanted to cross the Karakoram Highway together, it is our mission.

T: Your best advice to married couples that travels frequently

M: Always travel with your heart, you will love each other more. Every moment spend together is a treasure.

T: Your message to fellow young Muslim who wish/dreams to travel just like you

M: As a Muslim, travelling is a Sunnah. A famous Imam once said ” in travel, there are five benefits: Relief of adversity, earning of livelihood, knowledge, etiquette, and noble companionship.” So ,NEVER stop traveling.
