|| travels: Dubai ||

Here's something I haven't blogged about..our accidental stopover in Dubai!  To and from my brother's wedding, we went through Dubai.  Leon has always wanted to go there.  

On the way home, airport staff grabbed us right as we exited the plane.  I thought they had a super-speed transport to take us to the next flight.  On the contrary, we were stuck.  In Dubai.  Away from our baby girl.  I was heartbroken.  

But, it was a great detour.  We were able to hire a private taxi to take us around the city (and snap a few photos of us).  We were thoroughly impressed with how clean and safe and gorgeous Dubai is.

(this place reminded of the San Antonio Riverwalk)

Also, there is a couple that lives there that are family friends.  So we were able to meet up with them for a quick dinner.  The prices in the shops were affordable.  I could have bought another suitcase full of goodies but luckily our bags were packed to the gills.

beautiful goods

The next day as we eagerly checking in, we were pleasantly surprised to find we had been upgraded!!!!!!!  NOW, I could have really gone shopping.  Those overweight bags were free!!!  That spoiled me and Leon proper and that was the fastest seven hour flight we'd ever been on.  

Best part of all?  Kissing our baby girl at the airport.  :)
