Incredible Things to Do in Dubai that will Leave Your Heart Refreshed

When looking at the futuristic wonderland that the city of Dubai is today, it is hard to imagine that as recently as 1991 there was only one skyscraper in the city. Today, the city is home to the world’s tallest four and five start hotels. The government has spent a lot of money ensuring that the city of Dubai is known for its tourism industry as much as it is for oil, and the result is one of the most incredibly modern and amazing cities on the planet. I mean, the city literally has ATM machines that dish out gold instead of cash. Who wouldn’t want to visit an incredible city like that?

monuments, state parks, and recreation areas with miles upon miles of incredible trails and challenging climbing routes to explore. Some of the most popular features in the area with outdoor enthusiasts are the many incredible slot canyons.

The Complete Toledo Spain Travel Guide

The Complete Toledo Spain Travel Guide

Anyone who has visited Spain will tell you that the country has no shortage of incredible cities for one to visit. While some of the larger cities like Madrid, Barcelona, and Valencia may get most of the attention, I have a soft spot for the culturally rich smaller Spanish cities and towns. One of my favorites of these cities is the incredible city of Toledo. Toledo is one of the oldest and most unique cities that you will find in all of Spain. It was the capital of the country before Madrid and is still widely considered to be Spain’s cultural capital to this day. The city of Toledo absolutely brims with historical landmarks and is renowned for its wonderful festivals that date back centuries. For travelers to Spain who are looking for an authentic Spanish cultural experience, I can think of few cities better to visit than the incredible city of Toledo.

The Definitive Reflection Canyon Trail Guide for the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area

The Definitive Reflection Canyon Trail Guide for the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area

There are a number of spectacularly beautiful backcountry hikes that you can take in the Southern Utah area, but my favorite is undoubtedly the hike to Reflection Canyon in the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. While it is one of the most breathtaking hikes that you will find in the area, it is also one of the most difficult. There is no marked trail to help you navigate the roughly 15-mile round trip hike thru slot canyons and deep washes, and shelter from the blistering sun is almost non-existent. That’s why I believe this trail earns every bit of the “Difficult” rating that it has been given. The awe-inspiring beauty of Reflection Canyon is definitely something that all backcountry hikers should see in their lifetime, but it is important that you are prepared for this hike before setting out. I have created this Reflection Canyon trail guide to help you with that preparation so that you can complete this hike safely and successfully.
