My first 30-day trip around the world in 2006. The ambitious itinerary included a whirlwind 15 stops in 12 countries. Here's the trip from start to finish: Argentina - Germany - Egypt - South Africa - Dubai - India - Thailand - Singapore - Malaysia - Hong Kong - China - South Korea and Japan.
BURJ AL ARAB, DUBAI - This hotel had been on my Bucket List since I first saw a photo of it in a travel magazine. I spent one budget-busting night here on Round the World and my two-story suite still ranks as the most incredible hotel room I've ever seen
