Theodore Dingelberry’s Christmas in Dubai

Hello to All You Wonderful People

It’s me, Theodore Dingelberry, blogging you all the way from Dubai!

I am so excited, I’m celebrating my very first Christmas and I never expected it to be soooo  grand.

It all started with me seeing my very first ChristmasTheodore's First Christmas tree and how beautiful was that. The twinkling lights and a very big dazzling bright star right on the top of the tree.

Hello to all you wonderful people out there in the big wide world.

My name is Theodore Dingelberry and I am a travelling companion to my very close friend Antoinette.

”Maybe it’s the choices we make? We all start from the same grain but choose different paths? I’ve always thought most of us are only a handful of key decisions from a much different life.”Ashley Williams

“We spend time in our dreams, our special world where everything is on our side”


I dream of visiting faraway islands on distant shores, lying on a beach, engrossed in my favorite pastime – dreaming. Continue reading “So You Are ADD Too?”

Speak to The Captain (Part Two)


I was planning to hand the task over to the travel agent, but then one of the group said, “No you can’t do that, you must go up to the airport and God will provide your seat, whilst you are there. You must now exercise your faith and that is how the seat will come to you”. Continue reading “Speak to The Captain (Part Two)”
