  1. I’ve always wanted to go to Dubai, and these pictures make me want to go even more! Incredible is definitely an understatement when I’m describing these pictures. I’m going to have to visit all of these places and take pictures when I go. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  2. Dubai is far more beautiful than I ever gave it credit for. I like how it is more than just this built up urban landscape and the miracle garden is absolutely gorgeous x


    • There is so much to see hidden away from the shine you see on TV and travel sites people just don’t often look for it. The miracle garden is lovely, it’s amazing what you can do with flowers. Just a bit unnerving that there are no bugs there, you’d expect to see bees and dragonflies etc but because it’s all artificially grown there’s nothing…which is in some ways a plus haha 😂
