I’m kicking myself right now because I had this grand scheme, like I always do, to get everything done well in advance, before I leave on a trip. Although my to-do list does look pretty good right now, one thing is still uncrossed.
Clean house Do all laundry Do all dishes Take out all garbage/recycling Dye hair Get haircut Finish work Do nails Take Chaos to mom’s
- Prep and schedule a super amazing blog post
Do you see it? The one that I failed at. It’s this; I failed at this.
So I’m throwing a quick post together to keep up my momentum of at least one blog post per week. In a few minutes I’m walking to the MAX station to take the train to the airport where I’ll head out to Dubai via Amsterdam. I’m crazy excited to see Andy and I’m excited to explore a new place with him, my very favorite travel-buddy of all time.
That is… if I recognize him.
Here is what he usually looks like:
This is what I’ve been looking at for the past two months:
And here’s what he just posted on his Facebook page for the reveal as to where he’s been all this time:
So yeah, needless to say, he’s been growing his beard out. I think he thought it would be this really cool thing to do but every time I talk to him he’s whining about it. I’m not sure if it will even last through Dubai let alone until he gets back home to Portland to show his buddies. I’ll keep you posted.
Okay, that’s all I have for my super amazing blog post. I’ll be back in a week and I’ll hopefully have done better that I did in The Philippines as far as seeing lots of cool stuff to share with my wonderful readers, all of whom deserve a better post than this.
I’ll leave you with this: وداعا Which means goodbye in Arabic.
I hope you recognize him too! That is one crazy big beard…
The update on the beard is that it didn’t even last 6 hours here in Dubai. He’s very happy to have it gone but now he says his face is cold.
Epic beard. Awesome.
I’m waiting for your report on Dubai! Did you take photos? I can’t wait to hear the tales.
