I’ve only just come back from a glorious two week vacation in Dubai … I was only meant to go for a a few days and just ended up extending my trip each time. For those of you who’re new to my blog; I’m a potpourri of cultures – and spent my childhood growing up in Dubai. It’s been about 1.5 year since I’ve been back and about 8 years since my family moved from there – but it’s still ‘home’ for me.
Words cannot describe just how I felt about my holiday – and hence I’m just going to share a few photographs with you to take you through my journey :)
The very modern hotel room for the first 4 nights of the holiday. Freaked NC out when I told her there was no separate shower ! She’d already made plans of kicking me out of the room for privacy during bath hours haha
The Burj Khalifa is truely a stunning tower and sight to gawk at.
We went out to the Nassimi Beach which is a part of the Atlantis hotel and watched Cafe Del Mar perform live ! Spent a few hours at this super chilled out party and honestly I didn’t want to leave !
The coffee was served in the traditional way – loved the pot ! The juices were served in mini pitchers (that’s carrot juice in the photo below. ! And the shisha pipes were quite pretty and matched the colour theme of the entire restaurant.
The above two pics are from the Madinat Jumeirah – super chilled out; where you can go and grab some coffee; shisha; and a few drinks. There are various restaurants scattered across here overlooking the water front.
The last few days I crashed over at my aunts place in the Palms Jumeriah. That’s the view from out of my room window. On the left side is the pool and the beach ! It felt great to be able to open the lounge sliding doors and walk straight out to the pool and within 5 feet you can get to the beach.
And before I forget – you must see some of the new friends I made whilst out there … can’t wait to see them again !
I met all these cool creatures over at the Dubai Aquarium ! It’s a must visit if you ever make a trip out there. You even get the option of going snorkeling with the sharks ! or if you prefer to be safe – then you can take a ride on a glass bottom boat.
There you have it … my holiday snaps. I have LOTS more … but they just involve lots of alcohol ! hahah
