The things I did, food I ate and people I hung out with in Dubai.
I was in Dubai for SoleDXB as part of the Puma India Crew in the first week of December. However rather than return right after the event, I decided to move my return date by 5 additional days. So that way, I could hang out with my buds and take in the sights of the real Dubai.
You see, the last time I visited Dubai was about 5 years ago. And back then it was a quick 4 day trip that was restricted to the “high life” since we were celebrating my bud’s birthday. So the Palm Jumeira and Cirque Night Clubs were what I saw. This time, I saw an entirely new side of Dubai. Or do I say, entirely old side? It’s areas called Bur Dubai and Deira which is where the real Dubai began all those years ago. For my streetwear and sneaker fix, there was the Dubai Mall, Amongst Few Store and Concepts Sneaker Store.
Along the way, we went to some nice coffee shops and ate some good platters, drinking a bunch of Karak.
This is a documentation of the things I did, food I ate and people I hung out with when I visited Dubai.
This is a documentation from my rather beat and old iPhone 6 (it still takes decent pictures) and edited by Vishal Dey for Bowties and Bones.
But first things, first. A short film of my travel from my YouTube Channel.
And now for the story in images.
It begins and ends with a meal, always!
Let me know in the comments, if you have been to Dubai and there are other interesting things you would recommend. Don’t say sky diving though.
I’m still learning from you, while I’m trying to achieve my goals. I certainly love reading all that is written on your website.Keep the stories coming. I loved it!
