The Grand Canyon

First stop of our trip was Las Vegas, but Iโ€™ll post on that later after Iโ€™ve discussed our day trip to Arizona to go and see the Grand Canyon, another wonder of the world! We had been looking online and speaking with the concierge about the best and most cost effective way to see the…

Winter In Washington

I managed to swap one of my Houston flights for a trip to the US capital, Washington DC! Itโ€™s a shorter layover but gave me a longer weekend in Dubai and I was happy to visit a and tick off a new destination. Departing Dubai at 02:25, it was a long 15 hours over to…
