San Antonio Food Tour

San Antonio Food Tour

Before my trip, I had heard good things about the food in Texas. I wasn’t disappointed. There was such a wide variety of things to try. There was southern food, Mexican and everything else in between. La Fogata was one of the first places I visited. The atmosphere was really nice and relaxing. It’s set around a courtyard with a fountain. Choose to sit inside or outside. It was hot that day so we sat inside. I was able to…

Downtown San Antonio Architecture

Downtown San Antonio Architecture

Last week I was in San Antonio helping out a friend. I had never been to Texas and was excited to go someone in the States I had never gone before. I honestly hadn’t done much research, as this was primarily not a pleasure trip. You definitely need to visit San Antonio if not for the architecture alone. Keep reading to see why. The Alamo National Bank Building is a very interesting building. It sits on a corner and also…

Montreal’s Underground City

Montreal’s Underground City

When I was in Montreal last month I couldn’t leave without visiting the best places to shop. There were so many shops in downtown Montreal. One highlight was he famous Montreal Underground City. There was shop after shop of the latest of Montreal’s fashions. After a while it got overwhelming because the maze of stores continued for many miles, all under the city above. But don’t let that discourage you. Explore this “city” beneath Montreal to your heart’s content. An extra…

Dubai Shopping Guide

Dubai Shopping Guide

When I travel to new lands I don’t want to buy things I can get in my home country. It’s way more exciting to get unique items found only at my destination. Before traveling to the U.A.E. I searched all over for the best things to buy in Dubai. The first place I suggest going is the Dubai Mall. Besides visiting the Burj Khalifa, there are a million other things to see. Try Candylicious, where there is every kind of…

Downtown Montreal Architecture

Downtown Montreal Architecture

The month of April brought me to Montreal, Quebec in Canada, to visit friends. I had visited Montreal in 2010 and hadn’t been back since. One of the things that stood out to me was the architecture. Take a look and see for yourself. I stayed in La Salle, so the first few pictures are of this little island. I found out that Montreal is made up of islands actually. Many of the homes in La Salle reminded me of Queens,…

What to do in Abu Dhabi

What to do in Abu Dhabi

When people think of the U.A.E, they think of flashy cars and millionaire mansions. But what do you actually do when visiting the so-called “richest city in the world”? My first pick is strolling down to the Abu Dhabi Emirates Palace Marina. It’s a beautiful little oasis in the desert. Near the Marina is the Abu Dhabi Heritage Village. In the Heritage Village you are able to watch local artisans create items like rugs, and leather goods. It’s your window into…

Dubai Desert Safari

Dubai Desert Safari

A desert safari should definitely be on your list of top things to do in Dubai. Where else can you come in contact with sand as far as the eye can see? It was at that point that I realized just how far away from home I really was, in the middle of an actual desert. And it was an amazing feeling. The sand isn’t like the sand found on beaches where I live in Connecticut. The sand was almost…

Abu Dhabi Architecture

Abu Dhabi Architecture

You may have heard about Abu Dhabi, but were not quite sure where it was. Many more people have heard of its fellow city-state Dubai. Abu Dhabi is the capital of the United Arab Emirates  (UAE), considered by many as the richest city in the world. I was able to visit both Dubai and Abu Dhabi on my recent trip to the UAE. One of the things that really stood out to me in Abu Dhabi was the architecture. One…

Dubai City Guide

Dubai City Guide

Many people hear about Dubai and think about glitzy skyscrapers and fancy cars. But what are you actually supposed to do in Dubai? I’ll share what I did and maybe it can help you plan your next trip. One of my first stops was the Dubai Museum. It takes you back to what life was like before Dubai found oil. Things were much simpler before oil was found in the late 1960s. Pearls were the most important export back then…

Dubai Architecture is Definitely ‘To Die For’

Dubai Architecture is Definitely ‘To Die For’

Before visiting the United Arab Emirates, I had seen pictures of the architecture and was blow away. When you boast the tallest building in the world you have a lot to live up to. When you see the Burj Khalifa in pictures it looks so impressive, but how would it stand up in person? Leaving the airport, I caught a glimpse of the glistening tower. And to be honest, I wasn’t that impressed. It was just another building standing next…
