I fell in-and-out-of-sleep while the bus took us out of town and toward the Dubai’s Desert Safari. It was like waking up from a dream only to witness a mirage outside my window:  the desert grains endured, hardened by the beating sun. Beyond the sandscape, a seamless horizon.

It was my first time seeing the desert. A set change from many road trips before.

Grains of sand replaced the dusty provincial roads of the Philippines.

A natural skyline liberated from the towering buildings of Singapore. It was weird to see no trees, yet be assured that the lack of greenery was natural in Dubai.

Traveling, this means to an infinite end, approaching but never really reaching a final destination.

Possibilities beyond the sandscape, smiling like a seamless horizon.
