The world went crazy for this photo of an Emirates plane covered in jewels over the weekend. But all is not as it seems.

It looks like Emirates has decked this Boeing 777 out with diamonds, emeralds, rubies and sapphires. But don’t be fooled.
The clue is in the caption.
“Image created by”.
Yes, it is an image. An artwork.
Award-winning crystal artist Sara Shakeel created the image and posted on her Instagram account.
Here is the original image.
All the attention has boosted Sara’s social media profile.
We certainly love her work.
Travel allows you to get outside your bubble. It makes you realise there are other ways to do things, and that’s OK. Plus, I am a huge fan of skiing and for the best powder – you need to head overseas.
