Dubai, Enchanting Mix of Modern and Ancient

You got to love Dubai, despite its stinking hot weather most of the year! The lure of shopping and the luxury and ostentatious buildings and amenities intermingle with the desire of tourists to experience what this city has to offer!

Just driving through this city's immense skycrapers, clean streets, mosques and many developments and building works boggles the mind! We are truly in awe of the amazing projects this city is coming out throughout the years. Realising that the oil will not be endless and bound to dry up in the future, the leaders of this city and the whole country of UAE have envisioned a new era for the people of this desert nation. I am blessed to be able to see the wonders that Dubai and the UAE as a whole has to offer.

We took a bus tour (for free as you know we were stranded in the UAE due to the volcanic ash problems in Europe). So for three days we were stuck here, HAPPILY may I add! So enjoy our accidental sojourn into this wonderful city!
