My head in the clouds


It was late February, 2016 and I’m NOT in my comfort zone. I have an intense fear of heights. I took this shot from worlds tallest building, located in Dubai. To be exact, the Burj Khalifa is 2,722 feet tall. That is a bit higher than my average walk takes me. The view from the top is amazing, and while I was not at the top, but it sure felt like it. 

Dubai is a very interesting place. It is surrounded by water and desert, mostly the latter. This view does not do the size and scale justice. It really does not cover that much square footage, but it is the largest and the most populous city in the UAE. 

Along with a few friends, we went on a desert safari. We rode camels, had some interesting foods, and surfed the dunes (well, I guess that’s what you call it).   

Have a great week!
