Hello, friends! Friday Favorites is back this week after being gone last week for the 2nd Traveling Fearlessly installment. I still want to hear from you on what you want me to write about! What questions do you have about traveling solo? This series relies on you and I want to help you as best I can. Ask me anything!

This week I have been getting back into my routine after Egypt. Last week was all about sleeping and catching up on rest after Egypt. I am usually exhausted after one of these heavy sightseeing tours and Egypt was probably the worst as most mornings we were up early. One day we were up at 3:30 AM! More about that soon. Each trip, I say I am going to get into shape so I am not so tired and each time I don’t do it. This time, I am, though! I hired a personal trainer two weeks before I left and I will be working with her until I am satisfied. Over the years, I have put on too many pounds to recount publicly, but I am putting it on here so I stay accountable!

There have been some changes to my 2016 travel plans that I can’t wait to announce! I have to confirm few things, but in a few weeks, I should be able to share my updated plans with you all.

Longest Nonstop Flight  – Emirates has made the longest nonstop flight in the world from Dubai and Auckland. It is 17 hours and 15 minutes. I can’t imagine and I fly 15 hours and 30 minutes to Dallas! After about hour 10, I go a little stir crazy! Would you take this flight?

    I wonder how long is the time travel from Dubai to AKL. As per normal 1 stop, it can take up to 18hrs! The thought of it makes me tired already. Good thing at the time we went to Brisbane first for 2days.
