48 Hours on Oahu: Island Adventure and Relaxation

Get up early.

That’s my best advice for a two-day stay on my beautiful island of Oahu — though it would be the same if you were here for two weeks or two months. Not only is there so much to do that every hour counts, but some of the sweetest experiences can be savored only at dawn.

48 Hours in Aarhus, Jutland, Denmark

In Copenhagen, as we chatted with strangers and they asked what else did we have planned during our trip to Denmark, I mentioned we were going to Aarhus (pronounced oar-hus). Most of the people we talked to have not been there, but everyone said they’ve heard it was beautiful. When I was planning our trip, I thought Aarhus was going to be more like my base to travel around Jutland. But actually, this university town is a veritable destination on its own.

48 Hours in Dubai: The Best of this World Entertainment Hub

For a city like Dubai, which is home to the world’s best skyscrapers, glittering attractions, bustling markets and sumptuous food, 48 hours doesn’t seem enough. True, you need a lot more time to experience Dubai. But, if planned intelligently, even 48 hours in Dubai is enough to capture the essence of the city on a whirlwind ride.

48 Hours in Boston for the First Time

Everyone will say, you must take the off-the-beaten path. But then they will also say, there are must-sees that you just cannot miss. So really, it would depend on what you’re really looking for. Our travel focus is usually around history, architecture, and food. With the help of friends who frequent Boston, locals I’ve connected with, subscriptions to travel magazines, and guidebooks, here’s a suggested itinerary that worked for us first time visitors. Much like any major city, 48 hours is not enough to explore Boston. But for 48 hours, I do think it’s possible to get some sense of the city - its geography, its food, and even its people.
