poeticwordvomit Today we visited the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding, located in the heart of the historic Al Fahidi District. Operating under the centre's philosophy and motto “Open Doors. Open Minds.” the centre strives to raise awareness and demystify the local culture and customs of the United Arab Emirates.

After visiting the centre and enjoying a traditional Emirati breakfast, we explored the Bastakiya area which is a beautiful photogenic playground full of delicious textures and tones.

poeticwordvomit Hey, Dubai.
Your endless lines, crazy cool patterns and opportunities for symmetry are literally driving me crazy. I was amazed when I visited in 2007 and today, you blew my mind and my camera roll.
Thank you.

Sincerely,
Samah.

poeticwordvomit Having worked in the travel industry for over 10 years, it means I'm a member of many loyalty programs, whether it be with airlines or hotels.

I recently came across a really cool global competition with @sheratonhotels and wanted to share the details with you all. To enter, you simply need to post and share any city view by 30th November for a chance to win 100,000 Starpoints! Be sure to follow @sheratonhotels AND tag the image #SheratonClubSweeps.

This shot was taken from the terrace at Sheraton on the Park Sydney's Club Lounge. Whilst many guests (including myself in the past!) love to snap the views of Hyde Park and St Mary's Cathedral, I quite liked this particular view instead.

poeticwordvomit This one is for you, @quietpoem, my little (kuku) monster.

I know you don't need words, but today, they needed to be shared.

Over the past 18 months, you've come to learn and now instantly notice how my eyes and mind chaotically fill imperfections.

You have inspired me to see my surroundings differently, to a point where I enjoy capturing and am content posting an imperfect image.

You have taught me to accept that all the mistakes I have made and will make won't make me a perfect friend; they are simply moments I need to acknowledge, learn from and all they actually do is reduce the imperfections that you whole-heartedly love and accept anyway.

You want me to be unapologetically myself; comfortable in my imperfect skin, even when the emotional being that I am feels the weight of failure.

You love me not because I am "the perfect friend", but because I am your perfectly imperfect best friend.

You already know I feel incredibly lucky and so grateful to have your presence in my existence, everyday babe. Literally, everyday, and I know the feeling is mutual.

How, a crazy world apart, did we connect this way and become the best friends we could have each hoped for? I don't know. All I know is your words "you're too close to be too far" ring true and part of me is as sure as you are that our souls have always been connected, somehow.

This is just a thank you, for being you and for being (t)here, always.

I love you and the kuku magia friendship we have built more than you know and more than these words or any others can ever define. infiniti + 8, always.

poeticwordvomit I spent my Saturday eating, talking (in various accents) and walking with this sweet petite bubble of joy, Jenna.

Thanks for the lovely day, @vintagedaughter

poeticwordvomit I had the pleasure of meeting fellow architectural lover @surfistatomato on Thursday. It was great to finally meet the talented guy behind one of my favourite architectural feeds.

Thanks for reaching out and hanging out, Andrew!
