Leap Years – the Innovative Emirate of Dubai

Dubai has become something of a global byword for rapid expansion and grand architectural scale. If you’re looking to get a glimpse into the future of city design then Dubai in the United Arab Emirates might well be one of your best bets. This is just one of a number of cities around the world of which the swift evolution gives it a futuristic feel — make two visits five years apart and you might barely recognize the place!

Bazaar of Amman – The Mecca of all Tourists

17 December 2012 Jordan, travel stories 7 comments

Desiree Halaseh

The highlight of any visit in Amman is without any doubt the bazaar. The Souk can easily be spotted in the Downtown area of the city, near the King Hussein Grand Mosque. Downtown Amman, referred to by locals as “el-Balad”, sits in the narrow valley between Amman’s seven jabals (hills). It is thus, literally, “down” below the rest of the city. It is also the oldest part of town, where most buildings, although fairly modern, typically date from the middle part of the 20th century or before, scattered around  the city’s Roman ruins. The souk offers an authentic ambiance with typical oriental shops selling aromatic spices and Arabic delicacies, alongside cheap products from China, and an animated fruit and vegetable market.

I like to feel the destination, not only to visit it. I will try again with Dubai

15 November 2012 United Arab Emirates 1 comment

Sights of Dubai

Many times, when I reach a certain place, a city, I like to walk around on the streets, sometimes aimless, to use the public means of transportation, to look at people, sometimes get into a conversion with God knows who. I don’t know, I feel the need to measure the town’s pulse, to feel that “vibe”. Obviously, it is purely subjective. It depends on the emotional state I am in that moment, on the weather, on the period of the year when I go. There are cities that you fall in love with instantly, and there are cities that you have to digest.

Reading Kama Sutra in Teheran

The last couple of days spent in Iran were spent in Teheran and they were pretty full … on one hand I wanted to buy some more carpets (and I found them next to the bazaar for a few Euros) but also to visit what was left for visiting…On top of that, we had a huge surprise in a bookstore that had books in English. read more…

Iran – Discovering the Traces of Old Persia in the Islamic Republic. Episode 12 – Yazd, on the Silk Road

The tall minarts of Yazd mosque in Iran

I left Shiraz early in the morning. One day before we bought the tickets to Shiraz (this time no Iranian showed up to buy them for us like in Teheran) so early, in the morning we were present at the bus terminal in Shiraz…Today was a big day …the election campaign began and Ahmadinejad himself came to the poets town to launch his election campaign. He went to Persepolis also in order to get validation from the great Shahs and now he returned to the city. Thanks God, he was an early bird, otherwise who knows how long we could stay in the bus on the road – the road from Shiraz to Yazd passes by Persepolis. read more…

    Mumbai Escape at Ramada Powai Hotel

    Mumbai is one of the most interesting cities of the billion+ nation of India. It does not have the imperial history of Delhi, it does not have the princely elegance of Jaipur or Udaipur, it does not have the holly spirit of Varanasi and you cannot find any monument which can rival Taj Mahal of […]
