Dubai Trip 2016

Friday, 4 March 2016
So this February, I decided to take a trip back to Dubai to see what my chances were of getting a job/internship out there, as well as visiting my family.

Being there made me realise how much I loved being there and how moving there when I was 16, was the best decision I ever made, as a creative.
I also felt more at peace with myself than I did at home in Plymouth for the past few months.

Plymouth will always be my "Home Town", but not "Home".
What I mean by that is, yes Plymouth is where I was born and raised. However, Dubai has also been my home too. I have been visiting Dubai, since was 7 years old to see my family and since then, I have grown to love it more and more each time.

They say that "Home is where the heart is." and it took me until now to finally understand what it means. "Home" is where you feel you belong and that place you love with all your heart. This is exactly how I feel about Dubai.

Although for this trip, 70% of it was me sorting out my work situation and 30% enjoyment, I felt free and more like myself and I hope everything works out for me and that I can return to Dubai stronger, happier and more creative than ever!

  1. I wish your Dubai trip was full of fun and excitements. I had been there recently and from my entire trip dinner at marina cruise is most funny and joyful. So if you missed it this time then must try on your next.
