My husband and I are Air Traffic Controllers in Dubai. One of the reasons we moved here is that it's a whole lot closer to the rest of the world than Australia (where we're from). We LOVE to travel several times a year and really enjoy staying in private apartments or houses. It's just so much more of a 'living like a local' experience than staying in a hotel (most hotels are pretty well the same and once you're in your room you could be anywhere in the world - what's the point of that?).
