Wander Pi Wednesdays: The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque

Every Wednesday, I’ll be sharing one of my favorite photos from my travels.

The famous author Robert Louis Stevenson once wrote “There are no foreign lands. It is the traveler only who is foreign.” Nowhere did I find this quote to be more fitting than the time I explored some of the Middle East. Traveling to the United Arab Emirates was a unique experience. It was completely different than any place I have traveled to thus far and I really enjoyed my time there. I found the culture and way of life to be incomparable to anything I’ve experienced. This photo was taken at the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi. It was truly one of the most beautiful buildings I have ever seen. I thoroughly appreciated wandering the grounds and witnessing the call to prayer.
