Finally getting round to it

Showing you photos of my trip out to the UAE of course!! I have so many photos, it's been really quite hard to narrow it down, I don't want this website to crash!! So here are a few. Sit back, relax and come enjoy this trip with me! Because I really should be packing, but you know how it is... I have just about an hour to pack, iron some stuff, make our packed lunch and a million other things before Boyfriend comes back from the gym expecting me to be ready!

Where I spent a lot of my time (outside of work of course!)...


View of the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world...


View from the Burj Khalifa - I helped out an A-level photography student who'd ran out of battery and had the same camera as me - I lent him mine after his mum came to ask me for it! My good deed for the day!


And up... you only go up to the 140th-ish floor


In the Dubai Mall aquarium...


Crazy architecture within the Dubai Mall...


What you can do with a little irrigation in the desert...


Taking the abras (little wooden boats) to cross the Dubai creek...


Going round the gold souk with my sunglasses on...


Visiting a couple of these...


And having to cover head to toe - yep, that's me in an abaya there, with a head scarf - nice look hey?


Chilling out in the vegetable market...


Well, quite a load of random photos there, but honestly, there's over 500! I won't be going back, they don't need my help out there anymore, which I'm a little disappointed about, but what can you do? In the meantime, Brecon Beacons, here I come!!! Have a lovely weekend and I'll see you in a week's time! xx

So many great photos there - the architecture looks incredible and that aquarium picture is just brilliant! I can just feel how hot it is, too. Glad you had such a lovely time - the brecon beacons must be a bit of a contrast, hope you're having a nice break!

wow - amazing photos! I don't suppose you'll get that kind of weather in the Brecon Beacons but hope you're having fun all the same!

Stunning!!! At least you got to go once. What an experience (and with someone else paying!!)

Wow those photos are brilliant! So cool that you got to spend time there, shame that you can't go back but, as Diane said, at least you got to go once!

Hope you've had a lovely time in the Brecon Beacons, looking forward to seeing those photos too!
