On Wednesday evening me and my best friend Imani along with two girls I knew from college, ed left for the airport to head to the amazing city of Dubai! I had had a stressful few weeks so this break was more than needed- it was so stressful that I was packing in the morning. We landed Thursday morning at 8am and it was already over 30 degrees when we drove to our beautiful hotel, Jumierah Zabeel Saray, which was on the palm island. Our rooms were beautiful but the beach and pool was even better and we Cayaked across the ocean which itself was about 30 degrees. That day we ate outside on the hotel grounds- we all ordered burgers. we were getting ready to munch when a dusty looking, massive crow sat opposite us; we could tell it was after something. Imani tried to scare it but failed and she ran to get a member of staff- thats when it pounced. It leapt on to the table and stole Imanis burger bun, with cheese may I add! I have never laughed so hard at a friends misfortune! That evening we chilled and had shisha and organised our following day where we would be heading to the desert... photo 1 photo 2 photo 3 photo 4 DAY 2 At around 3pm our jeep arrived to take us on a 'Sundown Safari'. First we had a 45 minute drive to the desert where we were first shown a falconry display. This is where they use bait to show you how falcons hunt- it was actually quiet interesting to watch! After that we drove over sand dunes which was amazin-. I was sliding all over the car haha. We stopped twice to watch the sunset where I got some beautiful images of the desert and some cute snaps of me and Imani. Finally we headed to this beautiful campsite where we ate Lebanese and middle eastern food and watched a belly dancing show. I also had the opportunity to ride the animal I would be if I was a cartoon- a camel :D! At the end they switched off all the lights and we got to stargaze... it was so peaceful I could have laid there for hours. After that we headed back home and went to bed....... not before pranking the two other girls in our hotel by jumping on the at 6am while one of them vomitted!

Today was a weird day; we went from the beautiful, sick warm pool, viagra dosage to the ice cold indoor skiing facilities of the Emirates Mall of Dubai. Our pool was beautiful and refreshing- only 29 degrees as opposed to the 33 that the sea was that day haha. We headed to the amazing Mall of Dubai and suited up for our skiing lesson and snow park session and we had a wicked time. The places is massive and has three slopes as well as a snow park and a chairlift and restaurant! Of course, I never dropped (luckily) but the same couldn't be said for one of the sisters from my college who lost control and dropped; so funny! DSC09750copy   DSC09930 photo-21 Day 4. Today was one of my favourite days because I got to go all Kanye and Jay-z in the desert driving around on the sand dunes! If you ever go to Dubai this is something you MUST do- but if you can't drive properly then you will not get away with it- the two girls from my college found this out the hard (but entertaining) way by nearly driving into a wall when the engine was first turned on then not being able to drive in a straight line so they had to share with me and Imani! Later that day me and Imani headed to the pool and beach where we discovered their pool menu- strawberry Daiquiris and pizza became my must have meal. photo-23 photo-22 photo-24 DSC00088 copy DSC00097 copy
