the tallest building in the world

BURJ KHALIFA

On our first full day in Dubai, we spent the evening at Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world. The highest viewing point is 163 floors but it is not accessible. The top floor we were able to view from was 555 metre high, “At the Top Sky.”

After we watched the sunset from the top of the building, we travelled back down and watch the Dubai Fountain Show out the front. As you can see from the photographs it was incredible!

We ate a lovely dinner just outside the building called Serafina Dubai, where my dad and brother were able to drink Thatchers and I was able to have an Expresso Martini!! Such a surreal evening.

Its a Tuesday morning and I am sat at my desk looking out into the rainy street. How was it Summer 2 weeks ago? Through the heatwave I went to London for the day with my best friend Katie, as I had a placement interview with Jane Carr (which I got wooo!) The next day, Katie, Ellie and I sat at the beach in the evening and watch the sunset. It was so beautiful and as you can see it was the perfect golden hour.

These photos were taken on my Olympus Pen camera which I haven’t got out in a while, but after taking such stunning photographs I am definitely going to be taking it out more.

Tomorrow Katie and I have to get up at 4:00AM to work a full day at Cheltenham Ladies Day. I am half excited, half pooing myself as I know the people there will be big spenders and put a lot of pressure on us behind the bar. Although I am worried, the money I earn just from the one day will pay for my whole birthday weekend!! On Monday I am turning 21 – so old. I can not believe how quickly this has come around. I have got a full weekend of fun planned, but before then I have a big deadline on Friday. So a very stressful week for me, considering I have no motivation to do anything due to my excitement!!

A sunset dinner & a day in Lisbon

As you would of seen in my post A beautiful day for a beautiful beach, my family and I stopped at a new restaurant, right on the sea front. So we thought one evening we should definitely show our support and check it out.

The whole restaurant is windows, making it extremely picturesque. The sun sets all around you while sipping on wine and eating beautiful food. I had a cod fish, which was battered, covered in onions, cheese and potato wedges. For me, the portion size was perfect but my family thought it was too small. It is a new restaurant which opened a couple days before we went there for dinner so nobody was expecting perfection, but I really enjoyed it!

Tuesday 3rd July

For the last day of our holiday we spent the afternoon in Lisbon. We had to be out of the villa by 10:00AM and were catching a flight home from Lisbon airport at 5:00PM, so spending the day in the city seemed like the best idea.

Personally, I absolutely loved Lisbon. it reminded me of being in Barcelona (my favourite city in the world.) There were people everywhere, restaurants throughout the streets and a lot of atmosphere.

By the time we had travelled and parked in Lisbon it was already 12:00PM, so the first thing we decided to do was EAT! As it was the last day of the holiday, I treated myself to an amazing hawaiian pizza. While waiting for the food I had a little peep in Zara because I needed to buy some clothes for work in London. Shopping in Lisbon is really good!!

After this we travelled to the airport, before flying back to England. What an amazing holiday!!
