not a bad list

the inclusion of poland makes me laugh though, kind of stands out amongst all the usual suspects, but it really does give the impression of dreary. eastern europe in general gives the impression of a mishmash of indistinguishable and bleak countries though. doesnt appeal to me anyway

ive been to jamaica and my experience was good actually. nice people on the whole - and noticeably smiley, considering their lot. just got to be judicious about where you go. its a very beautiful country (unlike grand cayman where i lived for a few years, which was 'safe' but incredibly boring and flat, not so safe these days though)

ive been to dubai and agree, not much in the way of natural beauty. lots of soulless and empty-looking skyscrapers. traffic jams consisting of nothing but cruising gold-plated 4x4s

pretty restrictive obviously, but you can drink booze in your hotel and the people seemed reserved but friendly.

no fear of crime - saw the locals in their partially-hidden jimmy choos and designer handbags left largely unattended whilst they went to fetch their starbucks

wouldnt bother going back though and cant for the life of me understand why people go back year after year

this list sure makes me appreciate the country i was born in and live in!

I can't agree with you more about Dubai. It's okay. But ya, one time is enough to experience it. The word that comes to mind is STERILE. No history, no culture, no nice landscape (although the color of the Persian Gulf just off the coast is really cool). But ya, just an artificial "Las Vegas" erected on a patch of desert along the coast. And the people that you see outdoors as you drive around are usually Pakistani and Indonesian laborers. All the emirates (arabs living in the United Arab Emirates) are indoors shopping lol. Strange place. There are some good nightclubs, with women from all over the world. Oh man!!! It's almost worth just going for that. Also, outside of Dubai about 45 miles is a really nice resort with "tents"...but it's a 5 star resort. No, I didn't stay there, but I saw an ad. Looked really nice. Of course, unbelievably expensive. Emirates Airlines is good, too. They have western pilots, and an international flight crew of BEAUTIFUL women from around the world. Usually on each flight, 6 or 7 different languages are spoken by the combined flight attendants. Dubai is sort of a good base from which to go forth to other countries in the region. It's safe, has a western feel, and makes for a good "base". But very expensive.

Ya, travel is great to expand your horizons, but then it also makes you thankful for where you live.
