we’re off again: long haul flights & touching down in Dubai

Posted on January 13, 2018

 Wow, it’s been almost a month since my last post on here which is (I think) officially the longest I’ve ever gone without putting up a blog post in something like three years.

The foodRead More

  It’s 5:40 am and pouring in Venice right now. Porter is fast asleep, and I’m sitting on the floor of our room with all of the windows cracked open hoping that he’ll subconsciously hear the rain and know he doesn’t need to wake up because of it.
