Gosh, how the tan quickly fades! But thanks to my Ultrasun, the family and I were well protected in temperatures soaring over 37 degrees in Dubai over Easter (whilst the UK was basking in equally beautiful sunshine!!)
My last post talked about being busy, but this one’s all about smelling the roses (and I was quite amazed in such a dry climate to see so many beautiful flowers).
Dubai really is quite beautiful, both naturally and in manmade senses. Everything seemed so clean and shiny (slightly exemplified by our return to Heathrow dodging drip-catching buckets and broken loo seats!)
We spent one week in a gorgeous resort about an hour north of Dubai, with loads of swimming, eating and meeting new friends. Our hotel room opened out onto an area of grass and within three seconds we were standing on the beach – absolutely divine!
Sadly he was so excited about it that he threw up all night on the first night and spent the first full day in bed (reminiscent of Boxing Day, the aftermath of Christmas excitement! Note to self, manage his excitement levels a little more next time).
