1. The ‘you’re here by yourself?’ question still has me like ‘and why not!!? lol but I proudly answer yes and move on!
2. I don’t subscribe to bucket lists. If you do, cool. I just put enough expectation and pressure on myself to add that to the mix.
3. Dubai doesn’t speak to my spirit. Lots to do and see, but as far as unique culture… For me-no.
4. Much improved from when I left NY, but I’m simply not a good packer y’all!! Trai, thanks for getting me outta Saudi!! 😉
