Airmiles

So, today’s rant is about Emirates Skywards miles, or airmiles to those who may be unfamiliar with Emirates. In theory, this is a great scheme. You fly with them, they give you ‘miles’ which you can redeem at a later date. There is a shop you can buy branded products in, or you can upgrade,…

Food, Glorious Food!

No where in the world does food like Dubai, I swear. Ok, I have heard amazing things about Vegas too, but haven’t been so Dubai wins! As a foodie, I love to go to brunches and buffets so that I can try a little of everything. This tells me whether their restaurants are worth coming back…

So… the taxi driver in question smelt so bad, I spent the entire 20 minute journey home with the windows wound down.  Gagging.  It wasn’t pleasent.  I would never think of driving with the windows down at 120kmph along Sheikh Zayed Road, but it really was that bad. Not only that, but he appeared to…
