Bon Voyage Dubai Taxi Drivers

Taxi drivers are always listening to what we have to say, but do you ever listen to them? I celebrate my new car and say goodbye & thank you to all the cab drivers that have put up with me and shown me love, or almost made me throw up …GOOD TIMES.

While I am at it, I do a bit of research to find out what they listen to, what they read, and if they use Social Media – bit of a struggle but was fun! I also find out the reasons behind the traffic straight from these guys as well as their background, where they have studied, the amount of accidents they see a day and even talk a bit about religion..


P.S Thanks to my Dina for helping out with this post xo
