Afternoon guys n gals, im Nas, 24, half irish half yemeni, currently working and living in dubai after my time in london. Just thought i'd introduce myself - seems like you got a very useful website going here.
Im looking for travel partners because everyone i know is either broke, loved up and dont want to ever think about anything but their partner (booo!), cant get time off work or have another lame excuse! so i'll be posting on the travelling companion forum in a bit.
cheers people happy days
Welcome to TP!
Good luck in your quest for a travel companion!
How is Dubai? I've heard it's beautiful!
thanks for the kind words. Dubai is quite a popular tourist destination - and has changed unbelievably over the last 15 years. about 15 years ago the majority of this place was desert and completely unrecognisable from what it is today. All of a sudden, stunning buildings, hotels, complexes and the like pop up all over the place.
its very fabricated and very pretentious if you ask me. Its still a very young country (the UAE was only founded in 1971) and has seen an unbeliveable amount of expansion in such a short period of time.
Dubai is very much worth a visit and alot of people love the place. However, having lived here for a while before i moved to london and now being back working here - i've seen it all and would happily trade it in for somewhere else ... "where" is the question!
Well worth a visit - but the beauty is all fabricated man made material. The place is fast developing into the monte carlo of the middle east and im not a fan of such pretentiousness.
anyway thats just my insiders opinion - dont let me put you off - its well worth a visit!
