My love of travel began early; experiencing the world is one of the greatest gifts I received from my parents. I vividly remember the nervous excitement I would feel when boarding a plane as a child: the anticipation of new adventures, the thrill of discovery, and the joy of sharing it with my family. Some decades later, it all still rings true. Nowadays, as an architect, I am continually inspired by the places I visit, old and new, and am amazed by the lessons I learn as I experience different cultures and their building traditions.
