I write short, readable articles that are easy to understand, packed with useful information about something I have personally experienced. They include helpful extras such as phone numbers, maps, real pictures, websites and contact names to support my articles.

The comments section is an easy way for you to directly ask me about anything in more detail, if I can’t answer I can usually draw upon a source of contacts who can help.

In addition, because of the relationships I have built up over the years, I am able to offer discounts, prizes and special offers to my subscribers. Subscribing is FREE for you, I just need your email details and you  get access to new offers, discounts and chances to win great competitions as well as new Dubai stories direct to your inbox.

THANK YOU for taking the time to stop by the site..Monica.
