Pic(k) of the week 30: Bye Bye Dubai

No, I'm not leaving Dubai for good! Today however, my Summer holiday starts. If all goes as planned it will be an interesting three and a half weeks.

Initially off to Belgium for a few days, I'll then fly to Reykjavik Iceland for a weeklong solo photo-adventure. The last 2 weeks will then be spend in Belgium and Northern France, doing some aerial and aviation photography. 

Tomorrow is my "10th anniversary" in Dubai. Oh boy this city has changed since I first got here! Even though I still do like the place, it is always nice to escape the extreme Summer heat and humidity... Temperatures topped at 49C (120F) yesterday. But don't you guys worry. I'll be back!
