Hey! There are hundreds of places to go in Dubai, events, new restaurants, beaches but sometimes it’s good to get away for a couple of days! It makes you appreciate Dubai even more! There are lots of places to go to when you live in the UAE but I wanted to share with you my favourite places. Hope you like it!
You probably saw me hanging around in all different hotels & beach clubs lately and thought I won the lottery but NO that was just Privilee! Many of you asked me what was that Privilee card all about, so here is my review & all details about it. Privilee members this is for you too, I hope this will help you decide where to go next.
1. KNOW THE WAY
One of my friend ask me to join her on a "Family Walk" to Stairway to Heaven in Ras AlKhaima. Seeing her amazing pictures from when she went a couple of weeks before, I said: Let's go!
So I woke up at 4AM, drove there and of course typical ladies and orientation, we got lost!!! It is actually pretty simple:
You need to drive to Wadi Ghalilah , easy to find on your GPS. Arriving in that tiny village, keep going until you see that massive UAE flag, turn right just before. Then left just behind the sign.
After 500m driving on rocks you can park next to the shed, you should see a few cars parked.
Last August. I landed in Dubai. One more time I never thought I would go to this place one day. Butterfly effect. Exactly one year ago I was getting ready to go to Russia. I came from one extreme to the other. (temperature wise).
Here everything is huge and fast. I love the extraordinary red desert sun each morning and each evening. The prays that transcend us at different time (I particularly appreciate it when I am at the cashier of Carrefour). The city is clean and secure. I like the fact that I don't have to get out of my car when I fill up my tank at the petrol station (Lazy? me?). I like to know that I can call the shop across the road from home if I need a bottle of milk delivered (even though I never do it) or that I can forget my wallet on a table in a coffee shop and no one will steal it. And what a MELTING POT! I teach children of all horizons: Turkey, Russia, Belgium, Italy, Spain, Brazil, America, Saudi, Iran, France, Sweden, English, Swiss...I am myself half-French half-Egyptian. The beauty is in each of us.
