Why It’s Good to be Hajar Ali, World Traveler
Discovery Channel | Good to be You | July 2012 : Hajar Ali is the definition of a world traveler. A founder of luxury travel company Urbane Nomads, she has seen more places than most people can name, and isn’t big on taking the easy route for herself. In March, she became the first woman to cross the Rub Al Khali, also known as the Empty Quarter, the largest sand desert in the world, stretching between Saudi Arabia, Oman, and United Arab Emirates and Yemen. Not content with that desert adventure, Hajar is already planning an even more ambitious trip, to go by foot to Antarctica’s Pole of Inaccessibility, the most remote point on the frozen continent. Discovery sat down with Hajar to find out what inspires her to go places so few have been before, and how exactly she pulls it off.
