Global Traveling

A couple months ago, I had no idea I would close out 2022 having gone to the Middle East, but here we are, days left in 2022, and I get to share with you the incredible experience I had while attending the World Travel & Tourism Council in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, this November/December.

The conference arranged accommodations at Jareed Hotel in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and assisted with flights and a visa. This journey began with my flight out of Philadelphia International Airport. This was my first experience flying Lufthansa, with a layover in Frankfurt, before connecting to my final destination in Riyadh.Lufthansa

Prior to my trip, I upgraded to business class, and I was able to check in and move through security swiftly in Philadelphia. Once I found my seat, 3L, I got comfortable, arranging the amenity kit, full-sized pillow and blanket. A lovely flight attendant greeted me, instructing me on the seat, television and control center. She offered me a beverage and dish of nuts before take-off. I ordered a Diet Coke.Lufthansa

Once we reached cruising altitude, my dinner order was taken. I ordered the smoked salmon appetizer and the pasta dish for dinner, followed by a cheese tray to snack on during the flight. The fish was my favorite part. The pasta could have been warmer and with a touch more flavor. I enjoyed the sharp cheddar and fruit during the movie I watched.Lufthansa

After my meal, I played around with the seat controls and finally settled, lying completely flat with my pillow and blanket, ready for a bit of rest before I landed in Frankfurt. I awoke feeling mostly rested after about four hours of shut-eye. The staff on Lufthansa were wonderful, and I look forward to my next flight, as well as sharing with you all the absolutely incredible experiences I had in Riyadh once arriving. More to come …LufthansaLufthansa

Meet 5 Women Shaping the Brixen/South Tyrol Travel Experience

Although a destination’s terrain, cuisine and cultural attributes always draw travelers in, it is often the people they meet that make the trip an enduring memory rather than a box to be checked off. It’s a job responsibility that people working around the Plose and adjoining town of Brixen (in Italy’s Trentino-Alto Adige region) take seriously. This is even more true for five women dedicated to introducing visitors to new aspects of the time-honored ski, leisure and hiking mountain destination in the Dolomites.

Mindfulness City in Kingdom of Bhutan Unveiled as Future Economic Hub

In front of an audience of 30,000 Kingdom of Bhutan residents and officials, His Majesty King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck presented his vision for a new economic hub in Bhutan. Located between India to the south and China to the north, Bhutan is one of the most beautiful destinations in the world. Bhutan came late to global tourism. It opened its borders to international visitors in 1974 and, while tourism definitely increased, residents are enduring “light” rush-hour traffic in Thimphu, its capital city, as the only Asian capital without traffic lights.

Amansara Review

It was more than a car journey; it was a transition between worlds. At our first hotel in Siem Reap, huge coaches constantly pulled up outside the lobby to deposit or receive international tour groups; we departed in very different style, in a 1965 black Mercedes limousine once owned by King Sihanouk. The mundanities of mass tourism were left behind. We progressed through the chaotic Cambodian streets in regal comfort and soon arrived at a solid gate.
