When Alja was in Dubai we also spent some time in Deira, Bur Dubai and of course in Abu Dhabi. If you ask me - visiting Abu Dhabi should be obligatory for every tourist who comes to Dubai. It's totally different from Dubai and you can find so many beautiful and interesting things there. 

{Cheap (1 dhs) and unique experience is taking abra (small wooden boat)
to cross the Dubai Creek}.

{Blue crush}.

{Feather flowers in Bastakiya}.

{Coffee museum you can find in Bastakiya in an historic Emirati home.
On the ground floor they are introducing different roasting and brewing styles 

from various countries}.

{On the first floor you can enjoy a freshly brewed coffee while reading one
of the many coffee books from their library}.

{One of the galleries in Bastakiya}.

{Gluten free waffles with almonds, yogurt and fruit for breakfast @ The Farm}.

{A time to exhale... @ The Farm, Al Barari}.

{Magnificent Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque}.

{Standing on the world's largest hand-knotted carpet
in Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque}.

{The most beautiful mosque I've ever seen}.

{Can't believe it! Officially it has been 2 years since
I moved to Dubai. Time flies really fast}.

{From time to time this is my go-to lunch: delicious
Pad Thai in Little More. And it's also my mum's favorite}.

{Heart leaf on my bonsai}.

In this week also my friend Alja came to visit me. And it was the best week ever!

{On my way to the airport to pick up Alja with a lot of motorcycle delivery
drivers in front of my car. And there were also few of  them on each side of
the car. This is nothing special, just classic Thursday night. So when the
green light turns on they are acting like the race is on. The most dangerous
drivers on the road, in my opinion. You never know from each side they'll come

{Beautiful floor on Kite beach}.

{Not only in Manhattan, but also in Dubai tourists look up.
Rewarding! @ Jumeirah Lake Towers}.

@ V3 Tower, Jumeirah Lake Towers}.

{"We all know how to maintain our physical health and how to practice dental hygiene, right? We've known it since we were 5
years old. But what do we know about maintaining our psychological health? Well, nothing. What do we teach our children about
emotional hygiene? Nothing. How is it that we spend more time taking care of our teeth than we do our minds. Why is it
that our physical health is so much more important to us than our psychological health?"

{2 years ago Jure moved from Slovenia to Dubai, UAE}.

{This stuff is so good}.

{Délicieux! @ Lime tree cafe}.

{"You've probably heard it said that when it comes to their psychology, it's almost as if men are from Mars and women are from
Venus.// …. // So it's not really a case of Mars and Venus. It's more a case of, if anything, Mars and Snickers: basically the same,
but one's maybe slightly nuttier than the other. I won't say which."

3 years around the world

We love to travel so, so, soooo much. Each trip gives us opportunity to disconnect from our regular life, change us for the better, gives us an adventure, new experiences, education and relaxation, it makes us better travelers, problem-solvers, more open to new things, gives a chance to see pretty things, eat food like we never had before, gives us power of stepping outside ourselves for a moment and creates memories for a lifetime. Always boosts our confidence, gives us chance to do something new and more important - it makes us happier. 

Travel also has no limits, whether it's by plane, car or ship. As long as you travel somewhere, that's all that matters ;)

If you also love to travel you definitely need to check 28 year old Walter Chang's stunning timelapse video, based on 3 years of backpacking around the world.

Our life's exciting adventure is coming soon. So stay tuned :)

{It looks like a horror movie scene.}

{Don't worry. It's not}.

{We just went to get our car washed with triple foam - colorful, scented 
with wax. Why? Because obviously normal white foam is too mainstream ;) }.

{"Imagine you're walking in the forest and you see a bear. Immediately, your hypothalamus sends a signal to your pituitary,
which sends a signal to your adrenal gland that says: "Release stress hormones! Adrenaline! Cortisol!" And so your heart
starts to pound, your pupils dilate, your airways open up, and you are ready to either fight that bear or run from the bear. //...
// But the problem is what happens when the bear comes home every night, and this system is activated over and over and
over again, and it goes from being adaptive, or life-saving, to maladaptive, or health-damaging.
Children are especially sensitive to this repeated stress activation, because their brains and bodies are just developing.
High doses of adversity not only affect brain structure and function, they affect the developing immune system, developing
hormonal systems, and even the way our DNA is read and transcribed."
