Our London Adventure – Pt 2

After eating a lot of very yummy pasta at Prezzo, and realising that it was technically still Rush Hour, we decided to walk across the road to Trafalgar Square.  Naturally I had to sing “Feed the Birds” despite the fact there are no birds to feed anymore. I couldn’t tell you the last time I…

The Great Windsor Walk

One of the fabulous things about being an expat is that you get to meet a bunch of awesome people that you wouldn’t have if you had stayed in your home town.  Not only that, you tend to find serial expats are fairly like-minded and have a great sense of adventure. One such person is…

Cove Beach Dubai

Another day, another beach!  It really is such a hard life some days!  This time it was a beach club we opted for after a recommendation by a coworker.  I have mixed feelings about beach clubs but figured that it couldn’t be too bad as it was a week day.

La Mer

I love the beach.  Huge fan.  It’s one of the things I miss most about Bermuda is having really accessible beaches that are nice and close.  However, I have moved on a little since those days and really love myself a nice sun lounger to tan in comfort. There are lots of nice beaches down…

The Ice Park (The Parks, Part 3)

The third part of our exciting parks adventure was the Ice Park.  It is again in Dubai Garden Glow.  Right in the middle.  It isn’t included in the original cover charge, and will cost an additional AED 60.  Or maybe AED 65?  I should have paid a little more attention to that! Sorry! Is it…

Dubai Garden Glow (The Parks, Part 1)

In order to get over the crazy amount of “doing” that we did on the Big Bus Tour, Mum and I ended up having a lovely quiet day of treats the following day.  We had a lovely breakfast at Cafe Barbera, dresses made at Deepa’s in Satwa, we had our nails done at N.Bar, we…

Big Bus Tour – Part 3, or, Dubai Museum

After our exciting little mooch around the hidden souq (Part 2!) and our impromptu silly faces photo shoot outside it to pass the time, we jumped back on the bus and headed off to learn more. We battled the traffic through Karama and Burjuman and I spent half the time giggling at our fellow explorers. …

Bay Square

There is a little known area behind Downtown called Bay Square.  It is technically Business Bay but it is, in my mind, too far from the main area to count! It isn’t going to be little known for much longer though as there is a Double Tree by Hilton that is just open, and they…

“Near” The Top – Burj Khalifa

I’ve been in Dubai over 5yrs now, and I’ve never been up the Burj Khalifa in daylight.  To be entirely honest, it’s not really interested me.  I know what Dubai looks like having flown over it, and quite frankly, I think it’s prettier at night.   Albert of course hadn’t been up it ever so it was…

Cape Town Trip!!

As you may know, or have worked out already, my best friend and I decided to nip down to Cape Town for a few days.  It was so much fun. I just wanted to share a couple of photos taken from the plane on the way there.  I managed to sleep for the first hour…
