Save Money in Dubai

Save Money in Dubai
  Dubai is a big stopover destination for travelers flying Emirates Airlines as they transit around the world (or Etihad passengers if they decide to visit from Abu Dhabi). As explored the city, I was shocked at the cost of everything — from taxis to dinners to basic goods.   The rumors I heard were true: Dubai was expensive.   But like every destination...

Millennials

Simon Sinek, one of my favorite authors, discusses millennials in the workplace. I found it to be an insightful and incredible discussion on exactly why companies have such a hard time with millennials. To Sinek, one of the major problems is millennials’ addiction to their phones. Back in the day, before a meeting started, you would socialize with your...

This is how the new (and easier) rules for passport application look like!

Getting a passport in was never a cakewalk given the archaic rules that need to be abided by. But it was all the more difficult for special applicants like single/divorced parents that had to face some odd questions from the passport authorities. But, ahoy! Gone are those rules now due to the thoughtful initiatives taken by the Government of...

Beirut and Lebanon on a budget – All you need to know!

Earn While you Travel

How much money do you need for your trip? $1,000? $2,000? $5,000? $50,000? I’ve estimated that a yearlong trip around the world will cost you an average of $50 per day. That includes day-to-day expenses, flights, gear, insurance, and everything in between. (It’s why my book is called How to Travel the World on $50 a Day!) For most people, the thought of...

Trump’s Immigration Ban Creates Chaos For Travellers

Update: A Federal judge has issued a stay on part of this order, ruling that the 100-200 people currently being detained at U.S. airports cannot be sent back to their home countries. The ruling stopped short of saying travelers had to be allowed in, however, and thus effectively only applies to people currently in the U.S. As best as...

In and out of Maldives

The Maldives conjure up images of pristine beaches, reef-ringed atolls, and luxurious bungalows on the water, where lucky guests can observe fish through glass floors and jump into the sea from their deck. This island nation has always been on my “bucket list,” so when I decided to visit Sri Lanka and Dubai last month, the Maldives was a logical...
