Etihad Brings Back The Glam To Flying Just imagine. I’m getting ready to board a 16 hour flight from Abu Dhabi to Los Angeles and I’m actually looking forward it; not just getting home to Anne, but actually to the inflight experience on Etihad Airlines, the national carrier of the United Arab Emirates. It’s one of the best in-flight services now, especially in Business Class, but it is soon going to take flying to entirely new heights: Etihad is bringing the glamor, along with the comfort, back to the skies with their new aircraft and enhanced in-flight services.

To me this moment captured the relaxed atmosphere I was so enjoying in Greece, so I set up to take a perfect photo, Click and oops – I got photo bombed!

He calls out to say this means we must meet. So this is how Benjamin and I met Yanni visiting Mykonos from Northern Greece with his brother,...

Ebola Update: Southern and Eastern Africa Safari Travel Unaffected Updated as of October 16, 2014 Fresh updates from the CDC and World Health Organization have provided valuable insight into the continuing Ebola epidemic in West Africa. The reports provide some hope as both Senegal and Nigeria are approaching 42 days with no new cases and the WHO is likely to declare the end of the outbreak in both countries in the next week. In Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia new cases continue and more resources and assistance are urgently needed. Recent incidents in Texas and Spain have underscored the particular risk to health care workers and the need for proper training to curtail future cases. (Click here to read the CDC’s Recent Ebola Update). For travel to Africa, the CDC continues to warn against unnecessary travel to the affected countries in West Africa.
