I love following my fellow travel bloggers on Instagram, just as much as I enjoy sharing highlights from my travels there. From tasty camel burgers and kebabs to the most delectable pastries and miniature cakes, I’ve had plenty to gram over the last few days, as I ate my way around Dubai, enjoying the delights of this year’s food festival.

I’ve so much to share with you from this trip but I’d like to start with a quick round-up of the highlights, as seen on Instagram over the last week, not just from myself, @TravelWithKat, but also from my fellow food lovers @TheTravelBunny, @LondonMay and @micspicster.

The food frenzy started in the Emirates lounge at Heathrow, where they had the most fabulous choice of tempting treats that I’ve ever seen in an airport lounge. The perfect start to any journey.

Travel Insurance

I never travel without insurance. If something unexpected goes wrong the costs implications are just too high to take the risk. World Nomads provides travel insurance to travellers from over 130 countries. They're the perfect choice for long term travellers or single trip insurance.

Book your hotel or package holiday

TripAdvisor is my preferred hotel search engine. They compare all the top sites to find you the best deal. I also use Airbnb ($31 discount) for booking rooms/apartments.

 

Book your flight

Skyscanneris my preferred flight search engine. I'd recommend them for finding the best deals on flights.

Rent a car

Discover Carsis a great site for comparing car hire prices to help you find the best deal. They search both local and international rental companies.

 

Book an experience

When I’m travelling, especially to a new city, I use Viator and Get Your Guide to book tours and excursions. You can't beat a good food tour to introduce you to a new city!
