I realized, now that I’m not a broke college student anymore, that it’s hard to settle for a less than decent accommodation when traveling. Although I’m still not the type to splurge on hotels, I do value comfort and cleanliness much, much more now. Now that I’m also traveling more, it’s nice to come back to a quality hotel and not have to worry about a thang!
When searching for hotels, I’m still usually the budget friendly one, and N prefers to pay a small premium to have peace of mind that nothing weird pops up when we arrive at the hotel. With that said, we usually meet somewhere in the middle.
Destination: Dubai and Abu Dhabi, UAE!
Pretty excited for this one. We’ll be spending five days there, and we take off next week!
I would say this trip was somewhat a spur of the moment. In the hustle and bustle of my last few weeks of work, I thought, why not plan a trip to celebrate my big decision to take a hiatus from work and to celebrate my upcoming birthday…
After brainstorming for chilling out destinations, affordability of flights (points-wise), and degree of interest, the optimal destination turned out to be the UAE. 🙂
There will be camel riding, skyscraper gazing, and pool lounging involved.
