Have been to Dubai for over 9 years and love this city. I have seen the boom and the downturn. Those days the place where I live now was a piece of the sandy desert. The intensity of construction here amazes me. I love to travel and do several trips a year. Usually I travel solo. I traveled most of Europe, Asia, North America, Far and Middle East extensively. I did some Africa but still lots to do, and have not started South America yet! In general, I am positive about life.
