Hi there, I'm Dounya, and I'm the creator of "Cosmopolitan at Heart," a travel blog dedicated to exploring the world, connecting with different cultures, and sharing my experiences with others.

As a self-described cosmopolitan at heart, I've always had a passion for travel and cultural exchange. I was born in one country, grew up in another, and have lived and traveled extensively throughout Europe, Asia, and the Americas. Along the way, I've developed a deep appreciation for the richness and diversity of different cultures and traditions, and a love for the connections that can be made across borders and boundaries.

I created "Cosmopolitan at Heart" as a way to share my experiences and insights with others who are interested in exploring the world and learning more about different cultures. On my blog, you'll find a wide range of topics, from budget travel tips and destination reviews to cultural insights and personal reflections on the joys and challenges of life on the road.

I believe that travel has the power to connect us all, to break down barriers and stereotypes, and to open our minds and hearts to new ideas and perspectives. Through my blog, I hope to inspire others to explore the world, to embrace the diversity and richness of different cultures, and to create meaningful connections with people from all walks of life.

So whether you're an experienced traveler or just starting out on your journey, I invite you to join me on my adventures and to share in the beauty and wonder of the world. Thanks for stopping by, and I look forward to connecting with you! 


A cosmopolitan, also known as a "cosmo," is a cocktail that is typically made with vodka, triple sec, cranberry juice, and freshly squeezed lime juice. It is usually served in a martini glass and garnished with a lime wedge.

The cosmopolitan cocktail became popular in the 1990s and is often associated with the television show "Sex and the City," as it was the preferred drink of the character Carrie Bradshaw. The drink is known for its tart and slightly sweet taste, and is often enjoyed as a sophisticated and fashionable drink at cocktail parties and upscale bars.


A cosmopolitan person is often well-educated and intellectual, and may be fluent in multiple languages. They may have an interest in art, music, literature, and cuisine from different parts of the world. They tend to have a broad outlook on life and are often able to adapt to different situations and environments with ease.

The term "cosmopolitan" can also refer to a lifestyle or attitude that is associated with urban living and a preference for sophistication and refinement. In this sense, a cosmopolitan person is someone who enjoys the cultural offerings of a city, such as art galleries, theaters, and fine dining establishments, and is comfortable navigating the social scene of a metropolis.
