To wrap up things in the UAE, we took an *abra ride across the Dubai Creek into Deira where we meet up with Frying Pan Adventures for our Middle Eastern food pilgrimage! I’m not very familiar with many Middle Eastern dishes and what is travel worth if you don’t experience the local cuisine?! *Side note: I […]
Grand Adventures at the Grand Mosque
As you saw in my previous post, Dubai has built itself into a modern, best of the best city, but I think a lot of people forget that despite only being 47 years old, the area is overflowing with history and culture. The short version is, due to this prime location on the Arabian peninsula […]
When booking my flight to South Africa I found it is basically impossible to avoid a layover in Dubai. Not a bad place to stretch my legs, but I had a better idea *enter Zaneta* you’ve all read about my friend Zaneta before. She graduated from Cambridge, we followed the Euro Cup through France together, […]
Good Things Come to Those Who Book Flights
I’m not a huge believer in New Year’s Resolutions, starting fresh, karma or anything of that sort really. Maybe I’m a tad lazy but I prefer the “go with the flow” method of life, though that might just change after my intro to 2019. January 1st I hauled myself to SFO ready to spend my […]
Let’s Go, Sweetheart!
Phew long time, no blog! Fair warning though, I just spent three weeks in the Middle East and Africa so there’s about to be a flash flood of content. Before diving into that though, I wanted to get real for a second. This trip wasn’t my first time traveling alone. My first encounter with solo-travel […]
Root, Root, Root for the Home Team!
Yup, another New York blog post. I clearly have no shame for my love of New York City, considering I’ve visited three times in the past year, but this third time I was able to take my boyfriend along and check a new city off of his bucket list! Of course we hit all the […]
*insert Toto song here*
In all the time I’ve spent day dreaming up content for World Watching it seems I forgot to mention that I will be embarking on a new adventure in January! Starting New Year’s Day of 2019 I’ll be taking off for three weeks in *insert drumroll*… SOUTH AFRICA, SWAZILAND AND MOZAMBIQUE! I will be traveling […]
Prost Like A Pro!
I’m German. Well, at least ancestry.com says so. Like a century back my family immigrated to the US through Ellis Island and here I am today, a California girl who loves both beer and pretzels, so I’d say that calls for an appropriate Oktoberfest celebration, right?? *watch the comments for my Aunt Janie to come […]
A Broad Range of Artwork
It’s not Braude, it’s BrOde said Hermione Granger, I think. The Broad is the newest addition to Downtown LA’s museum offerings – just look for the building that resembles swiss cheese! It opened only three years ago and has a stunning collection of all forms of art. It’s even with a work of art – the curvy […]
Lamp Light Love
As the Disney peeps know, Paradise Pier in California Adventure has officially made it’s debut as the newly transformed Pixar Pier! Amongst the theme changes, the beloved Cove Bar was also remodeled and rebranded after the Luxo Lamp and all things Pixar! I was fortunate enough to squeeze in a one-day Disney trip this summer […]
