Cairo: Itinerary, Expenses and Things To Know Before You Go


Late 2017, during a long weekend, Ed and I flew to North Africa to visit an ancient wonder! Egypt has been on our travel plans for so long... way before we created our 20 before 2020 list. So, yes, we were beyond thrilled to make that trip happen!

While sharing snippets of our #SweetEscapesinEgypt on Insta, I came to know that it is not only us who have this lifelong dream of seeing the pyramids. I have received lots of inquiries from fellow Dubai expats and travelers since our trip, so this travel guide is better late than never! :)

Cairo Travel Vlog #3: Do-It-Yourself Cairo Tour


On our third and last day in Cairo, Ed and I visited the places that were not included in our guided tours. We took Uber rides and explored the city on our own! Honestly speaking, we were both not comfortable with this idea before our trip as safety is always a priority whenever we travel. However, things changed when we finally saw what's beyond the headlines. I can't emphasize enough that we never felt unsafe while we were in Egypt.

Needless to say, we had a wonderful DIY tour in the city. We visited the Egyptian Museum, walked in Downtown Cairo, went to the Citadel, took lots selfies with the local kids, and watched the sunset in Nile Corniche!

Ramadan 2018: Iftars and Meet Ups


Weeks before Ramadan commenced, I received a couple of invitations for Iftar preview. I won't lie, Iftar is the Ramadan tradition I always look forward to. I am not a Muslim, however, I immensely adore the essence of the holy month, most especially the concept of bringing the family closer by sharing a meal after a day of fasting.

I accepted three invitations. And in line with the true meaning of the season, I took it as an opportunity to personally meet and share a meal with my online family aka my blog readers.

Welcoming Summer in Fujairah


And just like that, summer has sneaked in and Ramadan is just around the corner. The current hot hot hot weather (We're not even at the peak yet!) brings an avalanche of flashbacks of the short-lived winter.

Although it was super quick, I must say that Ed and I have made the most out of the cool temperature with consecutive weekend getaways and plenty of al fresco lunch dates! And it's just right that we bid adieu to the crisp winter breeze and welcome the wild summer sun with a fun road trip.

Destination: Fujairah!

The Yard in Last Exit Al Khawaneej: Of Love Locks and Food Trucks


In the search for trendy and romantic destinations in the city, Ed and I headed to Al Khawaneej to see the much talked about The Yard and Last Exit D89 during the weekend. This new development is situated on the outskirts, but in spite of being away from the metro line, it became a famous hang out spot. People are primarily drawn to it because it is where Dubai's first ever love lock bridge is located.

Tailgate Brunch at TRYP by Wyndham Dubai


Weekends in Dubai call for lavish Friday Brunches in hotels! I do love to dress up for this occasion, but more often than not, I would rather ditch the fancy dress and high heels for a comfy get-up! Hence, the Tailgate Brunch - a laid back bbq brunch - at TRYP by Wyndham immediately caught my attention.
