About us

We love to travel, especially to unknown places, experiencing different ways of life and, obviously, food. Since we are both having our 10th anniversary of living in Dubai (by coincidence actually, as we only met half way through it) we though this trip would be the perfect way to celebrate it!

A bit about us:

Catalin is a professional photographer (award winning and all) that also runs a very successful photoblog Momentary Awe, where he posts about his travel adventures and commercial photography projects. Originally from Romania, he has been dreaming about this trip pretty much since the day he arrived in Dubai for the first time.

Ana is the head of marketing & communications for a multinational corporation, headquartered in Dubai. Originally from Portugal, she is passionate about all kinds of food and anything that includes Nutella. She will be the one posting all the photos with blue skies and cute fluffy clouds (those who live in Dubai will understand) and probably talking about shoes at some point.

  1. Hi Both! I came across your amazing blog about the drive between Dubai and Europe. My family and I have lived in Dubai many years ad we are now returning back. Now I was thinking of doing a similar trip as you did….from Germany to Dubai. Do you happen to know how this all works with exporting the car etc. The car is originally from Dubai, but now under a German license plate…if We drive to Dubai I would like to just keep the car there and re-import it so to say. Any advice you could give and in general what is the best way nowadays from Europe to dubai?

    Warm regards,

    1. Hi, sorry for such a delayed reply, but we don’t really check the site that often now that the trip is finished. I’m sure you’ve found more info by now, but as far as I understand it, you would need to get a carnet de passage from Germany (you need that for passing through Iran) and then import the car into Dubai. Once you’ve done that you get the carnet back to Germany in order to get your deposit back.
