Camel riding in the desert safari
Realizing life outside of what is your everyday reality, which can sometimes feel like all there is, increases you.
Last Saturday, I returned from Doha, Qatar, equally as electrified as I had been 25 years ago; I'm most impacted by trips to locales that are furthest from my norm. Qatar Airways invited me to the opulent desert destination and capital of the peninsular Persian (Arabian) Gulf country for its inaugural direct flight out of Atlanta. When I started writing about my travels 7 years ago, this was the moment I dreamed about. It was a moment that eclipsed all of the "what ifs" that had been able to slip in and out of my thoughts over the past few years because it was confirmation that not only does God always know what's best for me, but that he has his best in mind for me.
