Problems/Solutions

Some problems you could face in Dubai, would be the language because they do not speak English and you do not want to say the wrong word and have it offend a Dubai citizen. A few more major problems you can run into would be the Driving rules, for example you don't know which side to drive on and you do not know weather to go on red or stop on green, and Dubai is a whole different country so it could be completely different than the U.S. Now, this a probably the most biggest problem you will face if you go to Dubai, the Police/Security because you don't know how late you can stay out if you perhaps are under the influence. Also, you do not know Dubai's punishments for getting in trouble. Lastly but not least money, this could be a problem because if they said 10 euros you wouldn't know how much that is in dollars. So I would recommend that you research these topics.

Conclusion/Reflection

People who visit Dubai, will certainly be impressed with their culture, securtiy, Activities, Hotels and their fabulous atmosphere. You definitely have to remember to study and research Dubai's challenges and you will have the perfect stay!

About the Traveler

My name is Maggie Richardson and I'm 12 years old, I come from Show Low Arizona, where my brother Ross and I were born. I was raised there for almost two years and then my family and I moved to Loveland Colorado and then to Westminster. My family loves to travel, we have traveled a lot! I have been to 28 states in the U.S. The best trip I have been on, in my opinion is Hawaii, I love traveling to beach places, I'm not really into moutain trips unless they are out of state. My brother and I have never been out of the U.S so we've never been out of the country before. I have played soccer, dance, and Gymnastics, But for right now I do dance. My family is very important to my life because they have given me support and confidence in what choices I make. When I grow up I want to be a veternarian because I love animals, expecially Dogs! It all started when I got my 2nd dog (a west highland white terrier) because I was older and he is a big value to my life. Also because I recently got a Scottish terrier. These are the most important things to know about me, Maggie Richardson.
