About Me

Safura_Aceh

POOBRITNEY began in 2008 as a news and information web to Pop legend and superstar, Britney Spears. However, I’ve changed the direction to follow what I love to do instead who I love. Dang! Travel makes me happy. But I want to be happier. Then, it makes me realized what can I do with my blog to make me happier than before? Here’s the story:

Back in 2010, when I actively travelling, it was very hard to get details and accurate information about places I dream to go. Myself, Teh Safura, learned that not many Malaysian travel on their own due to the fact – lack of information on local guides,reviews and fear.

And because of that, I let myself to experience and travel to so many places around the world. Come back and write about my adventures that helps them planning on their adventures too. I started to write to show what it’s like to travel around the world on your own and expand your horizons. Glad that so many people come along for the ride!

  • Budget or luxury? – Will always go for budget.
  • My travel philosophy – Travel As You Are. Why is that? Every people in this world will have their own style of travelling. Regardless they travel for life or for fun. To me, it’s up to you to explore the world in your own way. Don’t judge.
