When television producer Jeff Johns first moved to Dubai in 2014, he didn't know what to expect.
Johns, who is originally from Washington, DC, had been living in Thailand when he was approached for a job opportunity that would bring him to the United Arab Emirates.
The city's central location and his flexible job as a full-time freelance producer has enabled him to travel to some of the world's most breathtaking destinations. Johns has already been to 76 different destinations and is planning 10 trips for this year alone.
Last year, he and his girlfriend, Anne Mugnier, started documenting their travels on their blog "What Doesn’t Suck?" The blog has opened up incredible travel opportunities for the duo, allowing them to see everywhere from Lebanon to Iceland.

"Dubai is at the center of the world when it comes to places you can travel to ... we can visit some insane places on the weekends without having to take extended time out of work," Johns said. Over 60% of the world's population lives within an eight-hour fight of the UAE, which means that impromptu trips around the world are common. Here's the happy couple on a recent weekend trip to Dushanbe, Tajikistan.
When Johns and Mugnier first met, he promised they would take a trip to Thailand together. Two months later, they were eating scorpions in Bangkok.
"Sometimes life in Dubai can feel stale with work and a conservative culture, so being able to jump on a plane and [end up] in the middle of a wild beach party is a breath of fresh air," Johns said.
