Instagramming Dubai

Instagramming Dubai 1

I‘m not exactly sure what I was expecting when I touched down in Dubai. Tim Horton’s no. Desert and sand yes. Still the modern architecture popped up in the middle of nowhere made for some interesting Instagramming Dubai photos. As did the ridiculousness that comes with it. More on that later. Till then here are my Instagramming Dubai pictures.

Walking through the Dubai Mall Aquarium

Dubai Mall Divers. To find take a right at the Cinnabon. Walk straight for 7 days. If you pass a Cinnabon you have gone too far.
