230: Princess Umul Hatiyya Ibrahim Mahama: The Globe Trotting Princess Shares Her Dream

Princess Umul Hatiyya Ibrahim MahamaHave you ever wanted to travel the world, see amazing sights and experience new cultures but thought “Man what would I do with the kids?”

Well I know that I have, and I guess mentally I have set my stall out for when they all grow up and leave home, and then straight on a airplane I’ll go.

But does it have to be that way?

Do you have to wait until everything seems perfect in your life, or do you just need to show a passion and a commitment to the task?

Well todays guest is a lady who decided in 2007 that she would visit every country on earth, and has currently visited 36 and five continents.

Planning her work carefully to allow for months of travel each year, as soon as the kids are in school, she leaves them with her beloved nanny, packs her bags and sets off alone to start conversations with total strangers, and the collection of unforgettable memories.

As she says “I am a dreamer and a doer. I am passionate about living life to the full and empowering others to do the same. I wear many hats; I am a writer, mother, entrepreneur, philanthropist and a ‘modern Marco Polo’.

And now as the 230th guest on Join Up Dots she can add interviewee to her titles too.

So without further a do, its with great delight that I bring onto the show to start joining up dots, the lady with the longest name I have ever seen, Princess Umul Hatiyya Ibrahim Mahama.
