souk in dubai

SOUK MADINAT JUMERIAH

Currently sat on my sofa after a very long week, wishing I was back in Dubai. How crazy is this weather change? After such a beautiful bank holiday weekend we are now left with miserable, black clouds. I have just got back from an amazing night in Brighton visiting my best friend Katie. We stayed at her sisters and explored everything to do with the gay capital. Today (Saturday 27th April) I have work before going out tonight to celebrate my brother and sisters birthday with all our friends. Tomorrow we are going for dinner at ASK Italian to celebrate with the family before we all head back to University. Honestly, I cannot wait to go back. Not going to lie I have not spent this Easter break chilling like I should of, I am absolutely knackers from working and socialising, now left with lots of University work to do. This week is all about getting my sh*t together before I weekend in an Eco Pod with Solly.

Naples for the Night

One evening in Dubai we spent at a market. We went to shop but instead walked around for a bit and then sat down for a cocktail. These buildings are so beautiful, Dubai is so photogenic.

SAFARI DESERT TRIP / DINNER & ENTERTAINMENT

One of our evenings in Dubai we spent in the desert. We got picked up by a man who works for the Desert Safari company and he took us around the desert. We went dune bashing and for a buffet dinner, where we had fire and belly dancing for entertainment. This was definitely one of my favourite evenings! It was so much fun sussing out such a different culture.

Dress – Motel Rocks (I also had the worst hairstyle this evening I am extremely sorry about that, haha!)

Happy good Friday everyone! How excited are you all for a warm 4 day weekend? I have today off but am working most of Saturday and Sunday – which is annoying but ok because I need to build up the bank account ready for the Summer! This weather is stopping me from revising and getting me too excited to finish. I just want to be on holiday again!

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.

THE PALM – JUMEIRAH

I am now home from an amazing 5 nights in Dubai. I couldn’t write any blogs because of the wifi so I have a lot to update you on. Although the holiday was extremely relaxing we were also so busy. My mum planned for us to do something every single evening.

We spent the first day at The Meddirra hotel where my parents had been staying two nights before Alice, Jack and I arrived. We had the most amazing flight over with Emerites and after sitting on a plane for 7 hours I have now decided after University I want to become an air hostess!!! Travelling the world for free and earning a profit, what could go wrong?

We flew over night so we arrived in Dubai at 7:00AM local time, which is 4:00AM in England. I then did not sleep the whole day until the evening to sort my sleeping pattern. The first day was the hottest, it reached 39 degrees and blonde me thought my skin could handle it even after 6 months with no sun. I then got completely burnt and couldn’t go out in it the next day, hahah!

Bikini: Zaful (new favourite)

On another note, I have booked to go to Alicante at the end of the Summer with 20 of my friends and booked to go to Madeira with my bestie Katie!! I am also looking to go to Berlin and hopefully a short holiday with Solly. As you can tell, I want to spend my whole Summer abroad ahah!
