Dubai has redeemed itself! Although we took over an hour to even get through passport control or should I say lack of control! The flight on the double decker was a fun amazing experience but so far Emirates have not redeemed themselves, pitty, supposed to be such a good airline. The sears were cramped and uncomfortable. Also my limited tolerance for people has been tested further but I've managed to bite my tongue. Im sorry but the Italians have done nothing to inspire me or make me think differently to them. Inconsiderate [email protected] in front and behind us on the flight.
We arrived in Dubai at 0418 local time and waited for the retards to disembark first (please refer to previous blogs for definition of retard). After a marathon walk to passport lack of control, we waited patiently in a hefty que. time ticked on and ticked on, it was shocking!
My Wife had to indulge in duty free although I can't blame her and then eventually met by our family to collect us. I spotted Mazen first and the Susan. After greetings we quickly headed off to the car. It was 33 degrees.
They gave us a very interesting tour of local Dubai before getting to the apartment on Jumeirah Beach.
We were then taken to Starbucks for a greatly anticipated coffee. After that we settled down for a sleep until 1400.
I have to say and better late than never how much I would like to thank my Wife for this experience. I would never have done it and I appreciate it much more than she knows. Thank you Stephanie Bridge.
At 1500 Susan and Mazen took us over to the Hilton and book us in and upgraded is for breakfast, afternoon tea and drinks at night. Wow! We also received a happy honeymoon cake, fruit basket and champagne. All compliments of the Hilton. Happy honeymoon Steph!
This has been an amazing experience, I have not seen anything like this ever, amazing architecture, stunning! The hear and humidity is unreal.
We miss the Seychelles, we have a real soft spot for the place, beautiful friendly country. See you again one day Seychelles!
So we are having a drink in the executive lounge while waiting for Susan and Mazen to collect us for dinner!
So it's 0013 on Monday the 27th. We have just dined at the Meat Company and had the most amazing steak and chips. It's around 35 plus degrees and the traffic along the strip is unreal!
We were at the Souk Madinat Jumeirah looking around the stalls, admiring the Arabian surrounds, totally different to anything ive seen before.
I've really enjoyed Dubai since getting here, other than the airport experience.
