The game of Football is popular around the world. Everyfootball fan in the world is now looking forward to the FIFA 2022 world cup in Qatar. Even in India, we have a large number of football fans who are looking forward to the world cup this year. Many of them might even be flying to Qatar to see the match themselves. One such football fanatic from Kerala is Naaji Noushi. She also has plans to watch the finale of the 2022 FIFA world cup but, she is doing things in a different manner. Naaji will be driving from India to Qatar in her Mahindra Thar SUV to watch the final match.
Naaji Noushi recently commenced her journey from Kannur and the trip was flagged off by Transport Minister of Kerala Antony Raju. The adventure trip from Kerala to Qatar has already started and months of planning has gone into it. Naaji has always been a travel buff but, this is the first time she is doing something like this. Naaji is married to Noushad who is an NRI. Naaji is mother to 5 children and she mentions that her husband and children have been encouraging her to travel more. Naaji Noushi also has a YouTube channel and she has already done four travel series including all-India trip. Naaji has completely wrapped her Thar in 2022 Qatar FIFA world cup livery.
Naaji has an Oman driving license which has already been converted into an international one. She plans to drive the car from Kerala to Mumbai via Coimbatore and after reaching Mumbai, Naaji and her Mahindra Thar which gets world cup livery will board a ship to Oman. Once they reach Oman, she would continue her journey in Thar and would cover Arab countries including UAE, Bahrain, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia before reaching Qatar. This is probably the first time, a woman from Kerala is attempting such a road trip. Naaji as mentioned above is a big time football fan and has plans to reach Qatar by December 10 to watch the finale.
