Friday FavoritesHappy Friday! Hope you all had a great week. My week felt long, but not for any particular reason. Although I am having a hard time accepting that March is half way over! My week might have felt long, but the days and weeks seem to fly by! I am sure you all have felt this way at some point as well. But it’s the weekend! Today, I am heading out to the desert to do some camp location scouting with the students again. We have had more rain in Qatar this week, and I am a little worried about how wet the sand will be and hoping we don’t get stuck! At least, it is sunny again.

10 Questions to Ask Before Booking Travel Accommodations  – I try to check on all of these, especially #8. It is good to have a checklist, though, and while I don’t stay in hostels, I sure wouldn’t want to be locked out of the hostel at night!

Destination News

It Just Got a Little Easier for Americans to Travel to Cuba – As I thought, travel to Cuba is getting easier all the time. Now you can go on your own! This is great news for me as I am not a huge tour person. You now can go as long as you make it educational and speak with locals. The U.S. government recommends you keep a journal. Anyone up for a trip to Cuba soon?

World’s Best Airports Announced for 2016 – Not only does the Singapore airport have good cheap food, but they are also the best airport in the world, according to SkyTrax. I am excited because my airport, Hamad International Airport made the list this year at #10! Did your airport make the list?
