Overwhelmed with excitement to share that WithLoveGabrielle.com is flying to Dubai in the near future to explore the United Arab Emirates! Emirates Airline has kindly invited me to visit Dubai to share my adventures with you.* Jump Jump*
It will be my first trip to Middle East and I am too excited for words! With a new destination comes an opportunity to discover so many a new things, and I am so looking forward to learning about the culture, traditions, and all the fabulous attractions and architecture that have become world famous.
United Arab Emirates (UAE) is a federation of seven emirates, each governed by an emir — a hereditary position often held by a high- ranking Sheikh — and one national president. UAE’s culture is deeply rooted in Arabic and Islamic traditions and the cultural identity is greatly protected. Emirates as a federation is socially conservative and yet progressive, open and tolerant. Since Eastern cultures are so different from those in the West, I look forward to educating myself and you about their customs and traditions. In my opinion, it is important to take the time to educate oneself with local traditions and the code of conduct to be sure that your behavior is never offensive or disrespectful.
Also, I am really excited to experience the luxury of Emirates Airline! Known for their luxury and exquisite service, the airline is one of the most technologically advanced and environmentally friendly in the sky. Emirates is a relatively new company, created just over 25 years ago in 1985, and owned by the Government of Dubai. Emirates now flies to 120 cities around the world on 6 continents, including 3 flights per week each way between Toronto and Dubai. Emirates also flies to Dubai from seven American cities including New York, Washington, Dallas, Houston, Seattle, San Francisco, and Los Angeles.
Since I always want to be sure my article are fun and interesting, I am really interested to know what you would like me to write about. Do you have any suggestions about traveling in the Middle East? Any cultural advice and insider tips? Places that you recommend that I visit? I really can’t wait to share this experience with everyone!
