So we had a very long 9 hours of travelling which was painful but totally worth everything. When we got into Dubai airport it was quite an eye opener and very intimidating. We were spoiled in Dubai with access to the 1st class lounge. My dad showed us around the airport which was very scary, the amount of money that sits in there is ridiculous. It felt like we were in a mini city. Everything went smoothly and we got to relax a bit before we climbed onto another 6 hour flight to Nice.
