Dubai dreams, running wild, running free

Dubai dreams, running wild, running free

Eking out subsistence, in an endless loop, days become weeks, weeks become months, months become years.

Imagination & dreams entice and allure towards exotic intersections of the world.

The ever present longing to travel is creeping back.

You feel the yearning, no more A to B that much is clear to see, cut the cord, free the spirit

You’ve booked your tickets, close your eyes, inhale, breathe, let the journey begin.

On desert safari, zephyrs, baked by saffron sun, pulse across golden sands, in warm embrace.

Bouncing on the dunes, encounter bedouin artistry, soaring wing-beats and bewitching hakawati (story-telling)


Emerald green Persian gulf tides ebb & flow, salty edges crystalise on glistening, sun-kissed, bronzed bodies.


Overcome the dread, skydive, feel the rush, spiralling, plummeting towards the ever growing Palm stretched out beneath you.


Transcend constraints of language & culture in architecture that commands capture.

Beautiful the night, a sparkling, audacious, futuristic city behold.

Skylines that reach for the sky, none higher than the spectacular Burj Khalifa.

Exquisite sanctuary in the Burj Al-Arab, a sumptuous oasis, adorned with crystal chandeliers, inlaid gold, silver, granite & marble.


On the hushed deck of a creaking, wooden dhow, meandering through the creek, untangle the pipe, kick-back and puff a fragrant shisha.


Tafawud (negotiate) in the souk, bask in the ambience of narrow alleyways laden with gold, silk, oudh and spices, rich, and tantalising, the past lives on.


Board the cool, sleek monorail hovering above, swelter no more, effortlessly glide to swanky designer malls and strike a pose.

Reconnoitre, discover, and explore new horizons, give salaams (peace), delight as a guest, or lavish as a host, escape feels glorious.

Let your senses run wild & free in the city of dreams, where anything and everything is possible.

Enjoy it, Live it, love it, once you’ve been, you’ll never want to leave or say…..goodbye to Dubai.
