Two Things You Must Do In Abu Dhabi

Abu Dhabi is wealthy; it’s really wealthy. They have oil reserves for generations to come. The capital and largest of the United Arab Emirates is diversifying with incredible tourist facilities and attractions. Abu Dhabi is often assumed to be like Dubai but in fact it’s quite different in the way it’s going after tourism dollars. […]

The North of Qatar

Qatar is a funny place. In fact, it’s a funny word that nobody truly knows how to pronounce! It may be funny, but it is one of the richest countries in the world. Oil and gas trillions have made a major global player out of the small Gulf state. In fact, the country of Qatar, […]

A Day in Bahrain

Bahrain is a small Gulf nation that most people know nothing about. Its only two real claims to fame are that Michael Jackson once lived there and there’s a Formula 1 Grand Prix held there each April. Otherwise, it’s the little brother to every other new Gulf nation more or less. Don’t get me wrong, […]

5 Awesome Things to do in Muscat, Oman

The Sultanate of Oman is a fantastic country to visit. My third trip to Oman has been absolutely wonderful. Aside from doing a 4×4 safari to Jebel Harim in the Musandam Peninsula, I revisited Muscat. It’s a city I wasn’t very fond of the first time I was there. I basically did a complete 180; […]

4×4 Safari to Jebel Harim in the Musandam Peninsula of Oman

Today I visited the Musandam Peninsula in Oman for the third time. I’m onboard the the Azamara Journey, which became the first cruise ship to dock in Khasab, the capital of the Musandam Peninsula.

5 Awesome Things to do in Dubai

I love Dubai. A lot of people rip on it but I love it. I accept Dubai for what it is and I embrace what it has to offer. It’s over the top for sure: it’s like Las Vegas without casinos. It’s not without controversy from questionable labor practices. It’s mind-blowing, frenetic and at the […]

Staying on the Palm Islands of Dubai

I love Dubai. I really do. I could live in Dubai and be quite happy. It’s central to pretty much everywhere in the world. It’s big, it’s bold, it’s clean and it’s really nice. I have been to Dubai more times than I can count and have used it as a transit base for traveling […]

The Jumeirah Inside Launch Event in Dubai

I’ve done some pretty cool things in my life and I’ve been involved in some cool new ventures and launches. I’ve also stayed at many of the best hotels on the planet in some of the nicest suites you can imagine. However, I just got to attend the launch event for Jumeirah Inside at the […]

I Believe the United States Should Get Involved in Syria

“The price of greatness is responsibility” – Winston Churchill I am not a Democrat, nor a Republican. I am not a liberal, nor a conservative. I am an American and a humanitarian. I do not like war or the idea of putting American lives in jeopardy but I believe in human rights and I believe […]

Sinai, Jordan and Israel

So the past 10 days or so have been pretty hectic for me as I have been very, very busy. Since I last posted on Luxor, I have been to: Hurghada; Sinai Peninsula; Jordan; Israel; Moscow; Abkhazia and am now relaxing in Sochi, Russia. Except for Hurghada, Sochi and Abkhazia, all of those were repeat […]
