For the last 6 years Dubai (UAE) was my home. And it was the starting and end point of countless journeys through countries on different continents. Dubai was also the door to the – for me at that time unknown – Middle East. Now I know most of the countries and beside wonderful photos I took home so many positive memories.

The next MWTTL.com post will be written from Mexico, our new home going forward.

For a big part of last week, this is how I saw the world: from above.

Dubai-Washington D.C.- Dallas and the same route back within 7 days is definitely not a usual week. When I was flying over this beautiful carpet of clouds I wondered how they form. After a bit of reading: the ones in the picture probably happen to be fair weather cumulus clouds which generally come with good weather. They have a flat basis, don’t grow very tall and rising air makes flying below them rather turbulent (as you can see, it was not the case during my flight). This is also the kind of cloud that imaginative people can see all kinds of familiar shapes in (dogs, cats, elephants, faces,…) and that painters often capture on canvas when painting landscapes.

Their massive appearance early in the morning was a reliable sign that parts of Tennessee (USA) probably still saw some thunderstorms in the afternoon or evening of that day.
