This blog aims to give some insight into my research as a PhD student in the Geography Department at Durham University in the UK.

Broadly, my interests lie in the intersections between tourism, culture, and politics in the Middle East. My current research explores the growth of alternative tourism practices in Jordan and Palestine, particularly the rise of homestays, hiking, climbing, and trail making. I aim to interrogate the ways in which we understand movement and mobility in situated contexts, how the landscape is understood through these practices, and how tourism relates to culture and politics.
