May 14, 2017 - Dubai - UPDATE NOTES

Hi All, So we have had 4 nights in Dubai. We were not sure what to expect apart from the weather and it did not dissapoint. It was hot, very hot for us and very bright when outside, walking around was not an option. Our primary source of transport was the hop on, hop off bus that seemed to take us everywhere we wanted to go with the exception of 2 souks that we wanted to see but planning to do that in a Friday was a mistook. Holy Day so closed, bugger. For a city to grow to these heights in 40 years is amazing, the buildings are just over...

Apr 16, 2017 - back in Dubai

We were lucky to be able to spend almost a week in Dubai two years ago. For a more complete account of this amazing place and what to see there, you could look at my entries from that time beginning with the first entry: Because we had been able to see almost everything we wanted to see when we were here before, we were challenged with how best to use our time here today. All the planned excursions we found both offered by the ship or independently, we had already done or weren’t of interest or were totally out of our price range. A...

Apr 15, 2017 - Homeward Bound

Our last day in Dubai as we leave for the airport at 10.30pm for an early a.m. flight to Melbourne. Will make the most of our last day with a bit of shopping at Debenhams and Marks & Spencer at Dubai Mall. Vanessa has a bit of work to catch up on for school and just wants to chill by the pool in the last of her sun until next summer! Eloise and myself caught a taxi to Dubai Mall which is the largest shopping complex in the world. Now I love shopping, but not even I would have the stamina to do the whole of this shopping complex. It is...

Apr 14, 2017 - Hello Again Dubai

Arrived on time after smooth flight. Watched an interesting doco called Dancer about a Ukrainian ballet dancer wo became Principal of London Royal Ballet at 19. He capitulated to the pressure by 23 and was involved in drugs. Worked in U S and Russia before he decided he wouldnt dance any more. Really screwed up guy. His name was Sergei Pulinin. Quick meal of Stroganoff before falling off to sleep for a couple of hours. Arrived in Dubai on time and spent a little time at Immigration where they seemed to be experiencing some teething problems...

Apr 3, 2017 - Dubai and Beyond

Made it to the airport in excellent time with the Emirates driver. Met Vanessa at the airport as she visited her Nan out in the area prior to leaving. No need to hang around on the outside of those big sliding doors so made our way through and finally began to realise a dream for all 3 of us. Admittedly my dream has been hanging around a lot longer than either Vanessa's or Eloise's! Poor Eloise was devastated to find out after buying her traditional postcard to send to friend Kate that this was no longer going to be a tradition. You can buy...

Mar 28, 2017 - Mars Dubai 2107

Mars: un temps bien pourri, des inondations, un anniversaire (Aloe 8 Ans), pour Bahia comédie musicale "Hair Spray", du vent (VinZ a sorti le matos!) et un nouveau Boulot (Virg commencera mi Avril). Bref pas mal d'activités, on n'a pas arrêté surtout Virg car les enfants étaient en vacances la dernière semaine alors il a fallu les occuper et rattraper le retard qu' ils avaient pris en Francais, tennis, piscine, docteurs ... Et d'ailleurs sur ces dernières paroles, il reste une semaine de vacances pour les loulous, alors on se casse en...

Feb 10, 2017 - Dubai

Hi All, This time I'm telling you some interesting facts and stories about my 2 days Dubai trip. I arrived to Dubai 2 days ago. The flight was 6.5 hours long and it was really comfortable. The seats,the food,All was great. I watched three movies, we ate, and time passed quickly. I got here around 8:30pm local time so I didn't see a lot that day, then we talked with my friend till 2am in the morning. As we talked, I've had a million questions about Dubai, the people, their culture, etc. And my friend,Saskia was more than happy to answer all...

Feb 9, 2017 - Flight 1

We caught the airport Hoppa from the hotel to Terminal 3. Check in was a breeze, and we were soon through security and on our way to the Acclaim lounge. We spent 2.5 hours in there drinking and eating before heading down to our Gate. Boarded the plane without difficulty and got settled in out seats. What an Aircraft! Lots of legroom and the TV screen was the biggest we have ever had. We watched (Dr strange & Jason Bourne - dad) (Me before you, a man called ove & Finding Nemo - mum). Arrived in Dubai a few minutes early. Had a coffee etc....

Jan 4, 2017 - Another sleep in and then the Mall of the Emirates

Letitia dropped me off in the afternoon. Shirley strolled the Mall of the Emirates. Browsing. Evening and we went in search of the Georg Jensen shop. I love these Scandinavian designed 'living' items. Maybe Letitia and Andrew will let me buy them something from this range as a wedding present.
