Refaai Hoosain

Senior Marketing Coordinator

Refaai is a writer from Cape Town, South Africa who has already published a book under the pen name “Refaai” at the age of 25. Born into a big family with a considerable age gap, Refaai has always felt like the black sheep (Not that he’s complaining), and always loved the idea of being a little different.

Refaai aspires to one day travel the world, with either Japan or New York being the first destination. His interests include music, novel writing, gardening, Brooklyn nine-nine, Paulo Coelho and Jordan Peterson.

As a marketing expert, Refaai has a degree in Marketing and business management, and has a considerable amount of published work under his belt ranging from Canadian immigration, all the way to, “what hotel to stay at when visiting Iceland”. He has since expanded on his love for adventure and exploration by joining the Art in Voyage team, where he hopes to inspire other explorers to follow their dreams.

What’s the one travel tip you always share with your friends/guests?

Knowing how to pack your things tightly is an underrated skill. Somehow, you’ll always need more things than you thought necessary. So, pack it in just in case.
