Exploring the Impressive Louvre Abu Dhabi, UAE

Architect Jean Nouvel designed the impressive and beautiful Louvre Abu Dhabi

Until recently I thought of Abu Dhabi as a city one connects through when flights through Dubai aren’t available. But that view was challenged during my latest visit to the UAE. I was surprised by how many people suggested visiting the Louvre Abu Dhabi, a world class museum which opened in 2017 as part of a thirty-year deal between the city of Abu Dhabi and the French government.

Hotel Review: My Stay at the Andaz Amsterdam

Be prepared to sleep with the fishes at the slightly surreal Andaz Amsterdam

Amsterdam is the city in Europe that feels most like home to me, so I’m always excited when a new hotel property opens there, especially when it’s a brand whose product I’m fond of, such as Hyatt’s upscale contemporary Andaz properties.  When I visited last week I got a chance to stay at the 3 month old Andaz Amsterdam, located in a former public library building on Prinsengracht in the Jordaan section of the city center.
