Short stories & travel reports from a life spent living, working and travelling the globe.
In late 2001 I was living in the Qatari capital of Doha where a friend and I were teaching English at the city Aeronautical College. Taking advantage of a national holiday, my mate and I jumped on a one hour flight to Dubai for a long weekend of exploring. It was a few years before Dubai’s huge economic boom and just a couple of months after 9-11. I didn’t even have a digital camera, hence the crappy selection of photos I have from that trip. Nevertheless, it was an amazing time that reminds me of that boundless enthusiasm I used to have back when everything in life seemed so new and sparkly.
