On This Day

I’m Going to Dubai!

“Geremy, you just resigned—what are you going to do next???”

I’m going to Dubai!!

One of my most transformative life experiences happened back in 2010 when I flew to Chicago, San Francisco, Seattle, Puerto Rico, and Florida on an “In Search of Inspiration” tour.  As a result of the ideas and inspiration received on these trips, I launched Peculiar PPL and I discovered a strategy that brought me many steps closer to getting my dream jet.  Now that I’ve started a new chapter of life, I felt that another “search of inspiration” trip was necessary to inspire the vision and strategy for the next few years.

Why Dubai?  Besides a great opportunity opening up for me to visit, I’ve always viewed it as the best place on Earth to see a manifestation of a huge vision in a short time period.  As someone who also has a huge vision of positively impacting the world in a big way, this was important for me to see in-person.

So, after a long 12 hour flight, I landed here late last week with my cousin (who I brought along as a super-belated Christmas gift). Over the next few days, I’ll provide updates of day-to-day sights and scenes, starting with these:

The largest building and structure in the world, which is a lot more impressive up-close

Our chariot that is obviously just as attractive as the Lamborghinis and Ferraris on these streets

I ordered these fries thinking that they’d be just as beautifully presented as the rest of the food from the restaurant. When the waiter put the dish on the table, I thought that they mistakenly poured too much seasonings on the fries. After disregarding the appearance, I tasted one and my tastebuds rejoiced in the name of the almighty potato.
