Dubai- The Most Insightful Meal I Ever Had

Dubai won me over from the very first time I visited. Everything about it just screams luxury, in a way that should be vulgar but isn’t.

Dubai won me over from the very first time I visited. Everything about it just screams luxury, in a way that should be vulgar but isn't. From the Rolex clocks at the airport, to the beautiful artificial beaches. It represents everything that true ambition and determination is made of. They took nothing, and out of that, built a paradise. If that isn't impressive, what is?

Last night in Dubai, as I waited for my next flight, I decided to grab a quick dinner. I did not realise that this was going to be food for thought, in every sense of the word. I was very enthusiastically served by two African young men- Michael* and Nigel*. They were so eager to have conversation, as though they were starved of interaction. I guess being a young black girl; they saw me as someone they could more easily relate to. They probably also guessed that I am African. They introduced themselves, we shook hands, and they wanted to know where I was from, what I was doing in Dubai, where I was headed off to. I was also curious to know what life in Dubai for them was like. Nigel walked off after the basic small talk but Michael stayed, Michael really wanted to chat. In a way it seemed like he was eager to make me aware that maybe, just maybe, Dubai isn't this revolutionary city of gold.

Clarity, Peace, Serenity

Three words, infinite value. I live for those moments in life when I am completely at peace with myself and the world, everything is straightforward, I have little or no worries, everything is stuning, and I feel like I am a part of the world’s beauty. Most times I feel like this are when I […]

Three words, infinite value. I live for those moments in life when I am completely at peace with myself and the world, everything is straightforward, I have little or no worries, everything is stuning, and I feel like I am a part of the world's beauty.

Most times I feel like this are when I travel, that's why it is my favourite thing to do. I hope that for as long as I live, a year never goes by where I can't travel to a place that I have never been or a place that I love. Getting away from life as you know it and the stress of it all makes me a much happier person. As much as I love my fashion, if I had to choose between the top item on my wishlist and traveling somewhere with the people I love, or even by myself because I cherish occasional solitude, it would have to be the travel.

Re-visiting the pictures that captured those moments, takes me to a great place and gets me through some darker days. These are a few pictures I've taken in different parts of the world that remind me of these three words or just being in a state of total happiness. I love beautiful images, I'm not a great photographer but to become a better one is definitely one of my goals, pictures speak volumes. What are some of your favourite places to go to where you feel like this or almost?
