Where to?

Are there no possibilities to take a cool dip in the water? Then it’s better to think twice if your kids are fans of swimming.

Dubai, known for its enormous construction projects like the palm islands, isn’t just the home of gilded luxury hotels and skyscrapers that reach into the heavens, like the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa. This capital city of the United Arab Emirates also boasts a lively and authentic cultural side that might surprise you. Today, we’ll put these interesting Dubai locations under the microscope!

Dubai Creek:

On the Dubai Creek (Arabic: Khor Dubai), the natural inlet of the Persian Gulf in the heart of Dubai, water taxi is the preferred method of transport. Called Abras, these water taxis can take you on a sightseeing tour or dock you in the city center to the north. You can also rent out entire Abras for a cozy private tour.
Ideal for a family getaway, the leisure park Dubai Creekside Park is located on the western bank of Dubai Creek. Among other attractions, you’ll find the indoor play area Children City. Nature lovers will also find plenty to love here: in the Ras al Khor protected zone, the forested lagoon in the southern part of the Dubai Creek, you can observe entire colonies of flamingos in their natural habitat.

Music in your ears, wind in your hair, nothing but open road on the horizon: without a doubt, road trips are one of the most exciting ways to travel. These five trips have us yearning for a summer full of adventure on the road.

Along the South Island of New Zealand

Fjords, glaciers and deserted beaches: could there be any more beautiful place for a road trip than the South Island of New Zealand? We don’t think so! That’s why this idyllic spot of earth is pretty close to the top of our list of dream destinations. Where do we feel most at home? In lively Queenstown for example, the unofficial party capital of the country. Or at the rugged cliffs of Nugget Point, where you’ll find wild penguins and seals. It’s hard to stop staring in New Zealand; everywhere you turn you’ll find another breathtaking example of nature’s beauty. By the way, New Zealand is great for unexperienced road trip fans, since outside of the major cities you’ll have the streets more-or-less to yourselves.

Across Morocco

A road trip across Morocco? If you’re scratching your head, you’re not alone, as many tourists come here just for a trip to the bustling city of Marrakesh. But the landscape of Morocco is just as impressive. Rocky mountain passes, endless expanses and the sands of the Sahara – all that and more can be found in this tiny country in northern Africa. Not to be missed are the two famous gorges: Dades and Todra. Even if you can’t complete a traverse without an off-road vehicle, it’s worth it even to take a drive through the gorges in a rental car. Spring is an ideal travel time, when it’s not yet oppressively hot but the worst of the winter cold has subsided. Read More »
