[week 8: back from the adventure]

So I’m a few days late. That happens.

We landed back in the QD on Friday afternoon. It took a couple of sittings to go through my pictures and edit them. So here’s a small selection of the overview of the trip:

It was the perfect blend of resting & chill time and going, adventuring & traveling. So thankful for a time away and in a new place.

Friends and family have asked what my favorite part was … it’s a tricky question for me. It wasn’t one thing. I enjoyed everything we did. But I think it came at the perfect time to just get away and enjoy some down time. The experiences were awesome! The rest was much needed (and eating my way through the countries didn’t hurt either – yay Cheesecake Factory in Dubai). No one thing stands out more than another – it was a blended balance that was excellent. Coming back to a Valentine’s Day box from the parents was a nice way to get back into a Monday and school :)

More pictures (possibly) to come!
