I have some epic (but only mildly food-related) news to share. Andy and I are moving to Dubai! His company is sending him to the Middle East to work, and I'm tagging along to play! We'll be there for about 3 months in early 2011, and we're ridiculously excited for the adventure of a lifetime.
Since I don't have any concrete plans yet over there (besides exploring the biggest mall in the world), I'm hoping to use my time to learn about the food of the region: how to shop for it, make it, and especially eat it. I'm also planning on sharpening my photography skills and working on my 101 in 1001 goals list (which expires next summer), honing the fine art of napping (kidding. Sort of.), and taking plenty of weekend trips to places I've never imagined I'd get to go.
I'm pretty flabbergasted that we have such a cool opportunity, and I can't wait to share it with all of you. I haven't decided yet whether I'm going to start another blog just for our travels, but you can bet that if it's food-related (and really, what isn't food-related with me?!), I'll post about it here.
Tallest building in the world, Burj Khalifa:
Has anyone ever been to Dubai? I'd love some insider advice.
