As I sit at Newark International airport awaiting my flight to San Francisco, I cannot believe that only 10 days earlier, I was sitting at Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv, Israel awaiting my return flight to the US.
I just returned from a trip to the Middle East which included time in Israel and the Emirates. However, for the purpose to creating “bite-size” chunks, I will focus this post on the Emirates, primarily Dubai.
The Emirates, along with a long list of other exotic geographic locales, has been on my bucket list for quite a few years. 2012 was the year to check off the Emirates (although I never realized how much I would love it so there may be a few more check marks added!).
