Oh dear it may have seemed that I disappeared forever BUT I have been on a well-earned holiday (also avoiding the builders and lack of wi-fi at home). I’m now back in this pleasant rainy land (and the builders are still here) and I’m missing the 42 degree Celsius heat. Yes I did say 42°C. I was in the land of glistening towers and sand as far as the eye can see – Dubai.
This was my second trip to Dubai, I last visited in 2008 for work and the pace of change seems to have slowed slightly (pesky economy). However you cannot miss the biggest change to the skyline the uber tower that is the Burj Khalifa (which was under construction when I was there last). Anyone with the slightest interest in architecture has to go up the amazingly quick lifts to the viewing platform, on the 124th floor no less.
So whilst I can hear rain against the window I am going to stay mentally in the warmth (I’m too pale to sunbathe but I do like to lounge like a lizard absorbing the warmth). So for now the below is my Inspiration - feel the heat.....
I’ll post later this week about the gorgeous hotel…..
