There’s a certain anticipation preceding New Year’s Eve that is very different from the anxieties of other evenings. Night begins to fall and suddenly this one particular night feels limitless in its capacity, as long as you know how to grab those elusive opportunities.
Sometimes those expectations can reach a bit too high and end up bringing about not much else than disappointment. Other times – like my surprisingly superb NYE celebrations in Dubai – those expectations are exceeded by the wonderfully surreal reality at hand.
