Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

  Dubai, United Arab Emirates – Where outer space meets the Middle East, a whole new world on a magic carpet ride, or in a Ferrari. When I was a child I never thought I’d grow up to be a time traveler. Being able to get into an air vessel and arrive in a different […]

This was the first good view we had of the historic site, on the […]


Stonehenge, England

  Stonehenge, England – “I said eighteen feet, not eighteen inches.” I guess it’s good Nigel wasn’t there to confuse the Ancient Druids.   Even though we were out late last night having birthday drinks with some friends in London, and were exhausted beyond belief, we got up early in the morning to catch the […]
