Long Weekend in Scottsdale

A long weekend in Scottsdale, Arizona is the perfect amount of time to get your feet wet for how awesome it is. A lot of people overlook Scottsdale and the Phoenix area in general for other destinations in the Southwest like Las Vegas, Southern California or even Santa Fe. That’s fine with me, as it […]

Singapore Has It All

Singapore is one of the world’s best cities but we often dismiss it. Even in the region Singapore doesn’t have the allure of Hong Kong, the excitement of Bangkok or the beaches of Bali.

24 Hours in Manchester, England

Manchester is the second largest city in England and has really blossomed in the last decade or so.

Two Things You Must Do In Abu Dhabi
