Because Instagram doesn't quite do it justice (no, seriously).
If there's one thing that we lament in the post-Internet age of all-things-Instagram, it's the loss of the photo album. Okay, maybe we also miss being able to come home and make a simple, less-than-aesthetically-pleasing sandwich without feeling obliged to plate the damn thing like we're dining at Noma. Or go to the gym in, you know, actual ratty sweatpants and a mothball-eaten concert tee rather than immaculate-Nike everything.
Digressions aside, we really do miss the obligatory tactile photo album that came with each and every trip we took—even if it was only to the dentist. (Thanks, Mom!) And so to commemorate our trip to Dubai, we decided to the next best thing and document the highlights here. Oh, and here. You know, the important stuff—like when we swung by what could very well be the world's biggest shoe store. Say cheese!
