I still haven't figured out how to keep up with the blog while working. I apologize for the sporadic postings. In truth, I don't think many people are even reading blogs these days. We can get such a quick fix of travel inspiration on Instagram, reading a blog post can feel like picking up an encyclopedia in comparison. Although having said that, I was one of those kids that would sit and read an encyclopedia from front to back. Regardless, I want to keep blogging. This is my scrapbook of our travels and our life. It makes me happy to go back and read about our adventures. So I shall keep blogging.

Throw in a boat ride on a traditional abra across the Dubai Canal and you see why this walking tour was the highlight of my time in Dubai.
