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…

A Caribbean Island with Monkeys?

A Caribbean Island with Monkeys?

It’s possible you’ve never even heard of the two island nation of St. Kitts and Nevis. Many people haven’t when I tell them about it. For myself, it’s the place where my great grandparents were born. The first time I visited St. Kitts and Nevis was in 2004. Unfortunately, I was only there for a few days and didn’t get to see as much as I had wanted. Of course I had to return, so in 2015 I was able…
