A few months ago, I wrote a post on creating time for travel. What I’ve come to realize is that many times our definition of “travel” includes a journey taken abroad or someplace far away, and yet some of the most memorable travel experiences could be waiting right in our backyards… Continue reading
I love the thought of being able to fly just a few hours and experience a whole new world. You can go from mountains to beaches to jungles, from hot to cold, and taste entirely new things you’ve never tried before. I get excited planning my trips to countries I’ve never visited before, getting to know the hidden spots only locals know about, and of course, taking some amazing pictures! Continue reading
Joan: I love to travel because new experiences enrich my life in so many ways. I am a people watcher; I love to learn by watching and staying in the background. Travel allows me to do this and gives me the freedom to do so because no one knows me. Overall I always get a new perspective on life when I travel.
Angela: I love getting out of the little box of the world I live in to experience other people’s culture. It’s easy to think the world ends at the end of your town but traveling helps me broaden my mind. I also love trying out new food and picking up different languages and learning that we are so different but still so similar. Continue reading
My last must-see stop in the UAE was the Shk Zayed Grand Mosque in the country’s capital city, Abu Dhabi. The mosque is the third largest mosque in the world and receives millions of visitors each year…and for good reason. Read on for my top four reasons to visit.

Visiting the garden in the night time offered a unique experience of it’s own. The weather was cool, the environment was very calm and the structured flowers came to life with glowing lights all around. The enormous garden is complete with sitting areas, souvenir shops as well as Pizza Hut! Continue reading
Beach day at Cove Beach in Dubai, which is situated right next to the iconic Burj Al Arab, was off to a good start with a scrumptious late lunch accompanied with champagne. The sight of sand and waves instantly gets me in a good mood. I couldn’t wait to swim in the salty water and lay on the golden sand.
I LOVE immersing myself in a new culture and getting to know new people. I’ve always been intrigued by what other places look and feel like. Discovering the sheer beauty in any new place for me comes naturally, especially capturing it on my camera. As a full-time day dreamer and wander luster, I find myself envisioning all kinds of places I would like to live. Continue reading
I must say, I’ve always been fascinated at the thought of swimming with or just seeing dolphins and so when my friend Cherie and I visited the beautiful coastal city of Hurghada in Egypt, and I found out that this was a common activity there, I knew already that the trip was worth it. Continue reading
Aside from touring the pyramids which I talk about here, there was lots to see in the historic city of Cairo, Egypt – all of which can be accomplished in one day!
The four sites below are my highlights. However, aside from the Egyptian Museum, a Papyrus Institute, the Coptic (Christian) area and the River Nile on a Felucca (boat) that I talk about below, we saw so much more… Continue reading
I recently travelled to Cairo with my good friend Cherie and our first stop was a tour of one of the seven wonders of the ancient world – The Pyramids of Giza. Continue reading
