Gents’ Weekend at the Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah

It’s not often that I get any R&R on the weekends. Like most other bloggers, I keep a day job to fund my clothing and car expenses (the two biggest chunks of the pie, actually) and then keep all blogging-related work for the weekends.

Dubai to Georgia: Tbilisi’s most photogenic tourist traps

I know I had already announced that I was going on a two-week trip to Schengenland on my social media platforms, but sometimes things do not happen as you we want them to.
