Paris, Dubai and Maldives: A Photo Journal

This photo journal is a collection of images taken during my husband Scott's 50th birthday trip: Four days in Paris, three days in the desert outside of Dubai, one day in Dubai, and six days in the Maldives. 

I must mention that this trip would not have been possible without the help of so many wonderful new friends that I have made as a result of my website. Thank you, thank you, thank you to Hotel Plaza Athénée, Chef Derek Paterson, and Four Seasons. I will be forever grateful.

I am sharing these photos to show how hard work pays off. Follow your passion and the next thing you know, your passion is following you. 

I hope you enjoy.



Oh how Oscar wanted to jump into that suitecase. One day you will meet Paris little buddy - I promise! 









Paris: Hôtel Plaza Athénée

    I have loved every photo of this fantastic birthday celebration though I swear it felt like it was much longer and you've been travelling for one month. What a memory for Scott!

    Can't wait until the next time we drink champagne in Paris.

    You got some fantastic photos - and I'm sure had an even better time. Thanks for letting us travel vicariously with you :)

    Let's see....this is my fourth, no fifth, trip back to this luxurious post. It looks like the experience of a lifetime. Your photos are gorgeous and make me want to run back to Paris, wander in the desert and dive into that spectacular water. May the rest of Scott's 50s be an adventure!
