Dubai from the Sky 🚁 #wanderlustwednesday
When we went to Dubai I reeaalllly wanted to skydive over the Palm Jumeirah, but the $600/person price tag had me hesitant 😳. The main reason I wanted to skydive was to see the Palm Jumeirah from above, sooo I figured a helicopter ride for $220/person was economically the better option. The tour was about 20 minutes of air time (17 to be exact), going over the Palm Jumeirah, Burj Al Arab, and the World Islands.
It's really impressive to see these man-made archipelagos that have been transformed from literally nothing (besides water), to huge islands now covered with million dollar hotels and condos. These islands are just another example of Dubai leading the world in innovation and tourism infrastructure.
This turned out to be one of our favorite things we did while in Dubai; it was well worth the price, and a great alternative to skydiving for anyone looking for a cheaper way to check out Dubai from above.

Cannot decide if it’s the sky or the building that make this picture look good
It's impossible to miss the adorable icelandic horses when visiting Iceland. Icelandic Horses are used for companionship and simply for enjoying the ride. They are a huge part of life and history of the people of Iceland.
While other horses have the 4 types of gaits- walk, trot, canter, and gallop, the Icelandic horse is five-gaited as it can also tölt. It is an ambling gait known as the 5th gear. The tölt is the gear in between a trot and cantor. It is a quick gait that is a smooth ride and allows the horse to cover long distances without getting tired.
The Icelandic Horse is the only breed of horse allowed in Iceland.No other horse is allowed in the country and when a horse is exported from Iceland, it is not allowed back in. For nearly 1000 years, no other breed of horse has stepped foot on Iceland soil thus keeping out disease and creating the ultimate pure breed.
Aren't they just beautiful !!?😍❣️❣️
🏛 My first time up north in Belfast and it was filled with beautiful buildings that spoke its history. My tour at the city hall informed me of the past conflicts between the Protestants and Catholics leading to the partition of Northern Ireland. But also highlighted the Industrial Revolution and a centre for Irish Linen production due to the US Civil war. Today its surrounded by mountains that can be seen from the streets as you shop and enjoy that retail therapy 🛍
This island is very close to my heart! Not a lot of people know this but I lived in kohtao for 8 months in 2016.
Those were probably the toughest phase of my life but this island brought me back to life in so many ways, that’s why it’s like a second home to me and there are so many emotional memories all over the island.
I dono if it’s the gorgeous sunsets or the crystal clear water and the tranquility, that gives you an amazing ending to every single day and you go to bed with that memory in your head, that does the magic. Look at the sunset ... isn’t it breath taking?! I could live with this :) ♥️ . Follow my journey in my own way in this island for the next two weeks :) let’s live it up!! 🙏🏽
