If you ever plan a trip to Jordan make sure you include a stop at the Dead Sea!
It’s the lowest point on earth and it offers a once in a lifetime experience. Apparently, the salt level in the Dead Sea is about 10x more than that of the oceans. The simple fact is that the Dead Sea is dense. So dense that you will automatically float once you are about waist deep. The water takes control. You won’t be able to stand upright even if you try. Trust me. I tried. I failed.
Are you craving a Caribbean feel, with upbeat music and bright colors?! Then Ting Irie is what you’ve been missing. The only thing that could make this slice of Jamaica even better would be some sand in my toes and the smell of the beach.
I had the pleasure of enjoying the Friday Brunch and was pleasantly surprised by the affordable prices. The set menu is full of tropical favorites like Rice and Peas, Curry Goat and individual Rum Cakes. Honestly, I was tapping out at the main course but miraculously I found some room for the desserts!
There’s always room for dessert!
Enjoy the pics foodies!!! Sorry if it makes you hungry! 😉

Part 3 is all about my favorite moments from Petra. Obvi the pictures and videos speak for themselves. Enjoy!!
*In no particular order*
Shopping in the desert.
2. Hiking/mountain climbing.
3. Chatting it up with the local kids…. no, I do not encourage child labor even though they were off from school and were getting their hustle on just like everyone else. Funny story… the boy took apart my selfi-stick and was asking if he could have it and the girl was requesting my portable battery pack. But the requests sounded a little bit more like… “Give me” and I was all like… “Ummm No.” They were super sweet and my heart clenched a bit.
4. The colors inside the caves were so beautiful and difficult to capture through a phone camera.
5. Bonding with Kalli made the trip extra special. It was our first trip together and I had a great time.
Everything about visiting Petra was special. If you plan on going I recommend spending more than one afternoon exploring this mysterious city!
If you’ve already been share your favorite moments in the comments!! Would love to connect with you!!
When my Dubai bestie suggested going to Jordan to visit Petra – The City of Mystery and swim in the Dead Sea I went along with it because I wanted to get away. I’m not a huge Indiana Jones fan so I really had no idea what Petra was and the Dead Sea did sound intriguing but it wasn’t high up on my bucket list.
The 2017-2018 school year has officially started here in the UAE and in the short weeks, I’ve been back to work I’ve learned a few lessons about teaching abroad. In this post, I’ll share with you four lessons I’ve learned so far.
1. Be Patient
I was one of about 500 that arrived as a new hire in the month of August even after many had been received in July. Talk about an influx of new teachers who needed to be trained, provided with professional work numbers, placed into their subject area positions throughout six emirates and overall guided through transitioning into a new country. Doesn’t come as a surprise when processes and procedures are delayed. It’s only natural to become frustrated and even easier to fall into a negative mindset of complaining.
