Wow I’m in Dubai and I’m not at MS

My last day at work was pretty short.  My first appointment of the day was with HR to give them my AMEX, Blue Badge, and Prime Card.  They also wanted my parking pass, but I haven’t updated mine in over a year.  It feels like I’m naked to not have my blue badge.  I feel free, but also it feels a bit strange, like I’m missing something.
 
It was raining when I went into the appointment and snowing when I got out!  I got a taxi and headed to the airport to catch a Northwest flight to Amsterdam on my way to Dubai. We had to wait for 30 minutes while they de-Iced the plane.
 
So now 25 hours later I’m in my hotel in Dubai and I’m getting ready to start the day.  I’m headed to the LDS ward here in Dubai this morning before heading to Jordan via Kuwait to meet up with the MS folks there for 3 days packed full of customer meetings, Petra, and the Jordan SharePoint User Group dinner which is sure to please.

Traveling is my passion. My quest to visit every country in the world while fully employed, raising a family and keeping my marriage healthy. I'm not just country hopping, but looking for the most immersive cultural experiences and capturing them as photos and videos. When not traveling, I'm living in paradise in sunny southern California working at Blizzard Entertainment, the world's most successful video game company in the world.
