Italy – Day 0 – Dubai
The date was June 13, 2011. It was 3 o’clock in the morning and yet my house was abuzz with activity – last minute packing, clearing off camera memory cards and most importantly revising photography techniques. There was a sense of excitement in the air as I waited for the taxi to the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) for my flight to Italy.
It was my first time travelling abroad and perhaps because of that, the excitement and memory of that night still feels very fresh and vivid in my mind. The journey was a 4 hour flight to Dubai for transit followed by another 4 hours to Italy. I took the chance to do some practice shots at the Dubai International Airport. Not much to see or do around the airport (except shopping).
And soon it was time to leave. First stop, the eternal city – Rome.
