Have you ever considered going on a trip for your birthday? I’ve definitely thought about it, and this year I made it happen! I’ve celebrated my birthday on trips before, but I had not been on a trip ON my birthday. I decided to go to a city I had always wanted to go to: New Orleans! Seeing posts and hearing people talk about their experiences in the city definitely made this U.S city on the top of my lists.

Curious to know about the experience, what to expect, and who’s behind it all? Continue reading to learn more about American Axes!

2019 is coming to an end, and we’re about to enter into a new decade! Before heading into the new year, I decided to look back on this past year and see my 2019 highlights. Come check it out!
Every year I say the same thing: how crazy is it that the year is ending and the new one is beginning?! Although sometimes it feels like the days go by slowly, the years go by in a blink of an eye! This year I kicked off 2019 in a completely different country, and I travelled to several new countries. I spent time with some of my favorite people, and also made new friendships along the way. I tried new things and learned new things. This year has been filled with laughter and tears; joy and frustration; healing and pain. Despite it all, I have so much to be grateful and thankful for during this past year. Let’s take a look back at the 2019 year highlights:

Did you know that Christmas is my favorite holiday? Most people assume it’s for the presents, but they’d be wrong. Believe it or not, I get ridiculously excited about Christmas decorations.

The capital of the United Arab Emirates, Abu Dhabi, is the second most populated city in the country. Situated approximately an hour and half away by car, Abu Dhabi is a perfect destination for a day trip while visiting Dubai. The capital city is located in the largest of the seven emirates, and is home to many government offices, as well as the President of the nation. Not only that, but the city claims various attractions that pull people from all around the world. Fortunately, I was able to visit two of the most popular attractions by taking a day trip from Dubai.

It’s still hard to believe that I had the opportunity to travel to Dubai. We spent about 5 days exploring the magnificent city and everything it had to offered – or at least I tried to cover everything. To help us to do that, we invested in the Dubai City Sightseeing Hop-On/Hop-Off Bus Tour. We decided to go with the 7-day ticket, and it not only helped us see many different things, but also helped with transportation when we wanted to get from point A to point B. Most of my recommendations are covered by the bus tour, so I highly suggest looking into it, especially if you will not be renting a car.
