Travellers Stories

Last year I learned the hard way that the UAE had different rules depending on which Emirate you were flying through. I originally planned for myself and my Polish husband to fly to Nepal via Dubai with a one night stopover on the way out. Flight schedules via Abu Dhabi were better, but then we went to check in we discovered that Polish passport holders need a visa, obtained in advance, unless it was a 4-hour transit or less through Abu Dhabi. So I got to stay in Dubai for a night, while my hubby had to arrange a new flight via India to Nepal... an expensive mistake!

Nepal trip

We did enjoy the trek to Nepal though and travelled to Goyko Lakes, absolutely worth the hike to 5,000 metres.
