Never Forget...

Hello, I’m back with posting for now, as I've had so many assignments to complete over a long period of non-stop work in two weeks….Either that or Fail!  But, lets recap on those memories I'm holding onto and share it out to the world—well online for now! 

As many of you may know-if you've read my previous travel diary, I have travelled to Dubai for 10 days, visiting family and exploring the place itself. Home to one of the tallest buildings in the World Burj Khalifa, I can only describe this experience as….One that I can never forget.

The airport was so beautiful and polished, it was like stepping into its own shopping mall. The duty free was amazing! I at least remember purchasing a few essentials and obviously a few items for myself. Shots or any kind of photography was not allowed to be taken in the Airport, but feel free to check it out for yourself. My sister and I stayed at the Tulip Hotel in Bur Dubai for around two days, before travelling out to Al Ain to visit family. When we first stepped foot outside, the heat kicked in, leaving me nothing but sweat dripping down my forehead. The heat was unbeatable and felt even more suffocated because of this. However, inside a taxi was another story, thank god for the cold air con and may I say temperature drop?The Hotel we stayed out wasn't that close to the City Centre or Dubai Mall, but I honestly didn't mind taking a Taxi. My cousin picked me up from the Hotel and whisked us off to Al Ain, meeting the rest of the Family and six little cuties from ages ranging from 1-7. The views are amazing and my favourite restaurant was definitely Baharestan. I definitely met new people in Al Ain, and loved being in their company. I went to visit a spa where all women and girls, come to relax and enjoy their self in a tranquil setting. I  also found out about an Outlet mall, selling all high brand designers at a discounted price! That was definitely my favourite spot! Back in Dubai, before leaving that is, I went to the City Centre in Deira, finding items at Mac, Sharaf DG. Honestly, I was surprised to see British Chains, like Debenhams and Marks and Spencers. I also get to check out Sephora— which I was excited about, because from what I know, we do not have a Sephora in the UK.My stay was unfortunately short, but I think it was an excuse at that time, since I was for one, incredibly homesick!

Thank you guys, Raqda!
