Join Jeff Klapes, known as ‘The Traveling Librarian,’ for an armchair traveler’s journey to Dubai and Abu Dhabi, the two largest of the seven United Arab Emirates.

Best known for their rapid growth, cutting edge architecture, and lavish lifestyles, there's much more to see if you dig deeper. Mosques, markets, and a mix of ethnicities and cultures make the UAE a challenging place to live and work, but intriguing to visit. Jeff is the recently retired head of Reference Services at the Lucius Beebe Memorial Library in Wakefield, Massachusetts, and is an avid traveler and photographer.

Armchair Travels is generously funded with a gift from the Rutherford Family Trust.
