Photo from Dubai: Day 11

Yesterday was spent lazing around the pool in the warm sunshine, followed by a brisk walk around DIFC, a gym session and dinner in one of the Indian restaurants in the Dubai Mall. Maybe not the most exciting Saint Valentine’s Day but at least… Continue Reading “Photo from Dubai: Day 11”

Photo from Dubai: Day 10

Yesterday started with a late  breakfast – well, it was the weekend – and continued in a similar vein as we lazed around the pool. However, once a stiff breeze blew up my beloved decided to go shopping. There was method in his madness,… Continue Reading “Photo from Dubai: Day 10”

Photo from Dubai: Day 9

Postcard from Dubai: 5 places I visited

I’ve visited Dubai plenty of times, largely for business with a few days of pleasure tacked on. This time my beloved’s Dental Exhibition coincided with the Tour of Dubai – how great is that? – giving me my first taste of live racing this… Continue Reading “Postcard from Dubai: 5 places I visited”

Postcard from Dubai: Part II

The heavens opened as we drove to Melbourne airport for the first leg of our journey home. The intensity of the storm was such that our flight, coming from Auckland, was diverted to Adelaide and finally set down in Melbourne some five hours late.… Continue Reading “Postcard from Dubai: Part II”

Postcard from Dubai: Part I

We eased ourselves into our trip to Australia with a stopover in Dubai. Not our maiden visit by any means, though many of our previous trips there have involved a mixture of business and pleasure.
