Take a huge pile of sand, add millions of dollars, a passage of time, and find yourself in Dubai in the UAE. I’m sending you this overdue postcard from Dubai – a city that holds so many memories, experiences and meanings for me. This particular trip to Dubai will be especially memorable. I’m staying at a relative’s apartment at Dubai Marina and the views are just breathtaking. I can truly get used to this kind of living daily😉
Tomorrow (2 Dec) is the 42nd national day of the UAE so huge celebrations have started already. I’m looking forward to photographing and enjoying the celebrations myself🙂
But why this trip will be of the more memorable though is because of the news I received as I was entering the city at the airport. Just before arriving to the immigration desk, I managed to hook on to some terrible internet and check my uni email to see my grades. I’ve averaged a distinction, and will be graduating this December! Hoorah!😀
I was truly worried about my finals, and the news came with such an overwhelming amount of joy, my knees buckled and I found myself crouching on the airport floors, crying many happy tears. It was a sweet, but awkward moment having my passport stamped, but I wasn’t going to hide my tears🙂 So that’s the big news I have for you all!
Hoping everything on your end of the globe is going well.
