The United Arab Emirates, mainly the city of Dubai, had practically become my second home since December 2005, for a total of 14 years.

This city, which never sleeps, with an incredible number of wonderful moments and unique experiences, has changed my life considerably and will always be remembered. Without this unique environment, I would never have been able to travel the entire world.

In the hot summer months, I always went to Germany or the wider world to spend my life in Dubai with my strength from September to April. During these fantastic 14 years I felt I drove every corner of the country by car, probably climbed all mountains and visited all the sights of the country.

What stayed behind were friends for life who accompanied me during this exciting time and made my stay so unforgettable.

Dubai is a city of superlatives, you can only love or hate it. But once in a lifetime, every travel lover should visit the glittering metropolis to form their own opinion.

Dubai, Thank you for letting me call you my home for a long time. I was allowed to live and work where millions of people spend their holidays every year for a lot of money, an incredible privilege,
