Time flies when you’re having fun, but it always feels that when you’re away from home, time telescopes and you manage to do, see and experience so much more. Whether you’re away for a night, an hour down the road from where you normally live, or halfway around the world on holiday – getting away is what makes working most of the time worth it. Mark Twain said it much better than I ever could,
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
Or more simply, as a friend said recently – “It’s so good to get out of the city!” And I couldn’t agree more.
As a journalist and editor based in Dubai who gets to travel often, and stay in more five stars hotels than is probably good for anyone’s grasp on reality, I thought it would be a good idea to share my experiences, reviews and trips to help anyone get away more often. What are you waiting for?
