Souk Madinat Jumeirah Dubai

Here are my last few photos from our time in Dubai.  Unfortunately, I never made it to the beach but I did manage to get a view of the fabulous Burj Al Arab hotel.  I enjoyed my time at the old souks so much, I thought it would be fun to visit one of the modern versions.  The Souk Madinat Jumeirah is a posh version of a middle eastern marketplace offering shopping, restaurants and entertainment.  You can even ride in a traditional abra along the waterways.

Bur Dubai Hindu Temple Complex

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.  I've taken thousands of photos and the thought of them just sitting in a folder on my desktop is just unacceptable.  So (most overused word in the English language lately, has even exceeded the word "like") today I'll share some more photos from my Wander with Nada Dubai walking tour.  Down a little alley in the Bur Dubai old souk, you will find the only Hindu temple complex in the UAE,

Dubai Mall & Burj Khalifa

Can you feel spring in the air?  I can and I'm so thrilled and so ready.  This Texas gal needs some warmth.  A little update on us... we're moving back to London just in time for spring.  Surrey has been lovely, but we miss the city and are eager to get back.  Speaking of warmth and cities (see what I did there?), here are some more photos from our visit to Dubai.
