36 Hours in Dubai

Dubai in thirty-six hours

Thirty-six. That’s how many hours we had in Dubai this weekend. And I think we made the most of it. It’s not long at all. And I’d made various lists of places to see and eat. Sure it was a little disappointing not being able to tick as many things off. BUT nothing beats some time away from home – feeling that holiday feeling. It’s been so long.

Living for the weekend

Every Monday morning I wake up yearning after the weekend that’s just gone by, eagerly waiting for the next weekend to come. Sunday nights are the worst.

This past Monday evening, we capitalised on Anish’s day off and headed off for the evening to see some cars. Yes, cars. This is a shared passion. Well, not really a passion for me, but big interest. BIG. Thanks to my brother and dad most likely. Dad liked his cars, and racing in general. My brother’s always been into them too. And somewhere along the lines that permeated into me. Continue Reading
