From Jamie's Philippines Pics

We have also had the opportunity to travel to some amazing places in China, Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, the Philippines, and Bali. We have archived all of our travels and living experiences abroad; and if you wish, you can read about our adventures by finding the archives on the right of this page and by checking our Photo Album.

We appreciate all of our family and friends who have stayed in touch and emailed us with encouraging words throughout the year. We hope you will continue to keep us in your thoughts as we continue our adventure of living abroad teaching at an international school. For those who have stumbled upon our site, check out the "About Eric and Jamie" section on the right for more information.

Thanks for checking us out!

"Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends."

Dubai 2012 Long Weekend Day 4

We woke early this morning and took a quick taxi to the Dubai airport.  Nice airport and quite large.  It seems to take forever to go from one place to the next.  One thing I hate more than anything is taking a bus to your plane from the gate.  I half way understand if it is a low cost carrier at a larger carrier's hub, but this was Emirates, the flagship of Dubai.  Why they couldn't taxi their planes and board from the gate is beyond me.  Nonetheless, the flight was a breeze despite the delays.

After arriving in Bahrain, we decided to go to our favorite restaurant there and eat, Ric's Country Kitchen.  I may have discussed it before, but in short, Ric's has some good American fix ins, particularly for breakfast.  I ate up some biscuits and sausage gravy with a side of bacon.  Jamie had what appeared to be potato skins along with (you guessed it) a side of bacon.

The drive across the causeway was a piece of cake and Jamie and I spent the rest of the day catching up on our shows.

Again, a wonderful trip to Dubai.  We highly recommend the city for a 4 day weekend.  There is probably enough to do if you wanted to stay for a week, but it might get costly.  They have some fabulous resorts there too, but again, more costly.  I know we'll be back down there for a similar long weekend in the future.
