Visit the Philippines: Why This has to be Your Next Destination Find out how I went whale shark diving in the Philippines


So this was a very last minute surprise trip, that I have to admit, was not on my bucket list of places to visit. To be honest I had not even heard of Philippines until I had moved to Dubai, where most of my colleagues are from. Interesting fact; Did you know that there are more than 700,000 Filipinos that live in the UAE, of which 450,000 reside in Dubai.

You would think this would have been a reason to visit the Philippines  a long time ago. Only because travelling to places our colleagues are from gives you much more to talk about, share and learn about their country and culture. I so wish I had gone sooner anyway enough blabber…


How to do Cape Town in 4 days and Attend a Wedding Visit Cape Town what to do ?


Cape town is the most diverse city within Africa for me. I say this because it meets western culture yet remains African. Cape town is to us what Las Vegas is to Americans. Cape Town has always been one of my favourite destinations for a family vacation, well any vacation actually. The vibes are just perfect for a holiday as soon as you see Cape Town from your airplane window, you know holiday has begun!

Being from southern parts of Africa I often travel to Cape Town. Be it for  our winter holiday, new years or Christmas. This a popular time of year for tourist to visit South Africa.

Having traveled to Cape Town since I was a child it was a totally different experience when I visited in now. When I was younger the highlight of my trip was Ratanga Junction, now the gorgeous vineyards like Stellenbosch and Franschhoek. Cape Town offers so much variety and choice when it comes to attractions, food, wine, safaris and so much more. I have put together a handy 4 day plan on how to see the best of this beautiful destination. Let’s face it,  the choices can be overwhelming.

So if you only have a short time in Cape Town this as I did in just 4 days this is the guide for you. It is a 9 hour  flight from Dubai, How do you do it ? I managed to do it plus attend a wedding.

Here is how I did it :


Is Maldives the Most Luxurious Holiday Destination A review of the Maldives at Anantara Veli Resort


Maldives is nothing short of the most quintessential holiday destination once you have visited you will have the “Maldives sickness”.

When someone says they are travelling to the Maldives lets think beyond all the amazing romantic gestures that do happen, what about the adventure!
