The best stop on the way home - Dubai!!

Around this time last year my friend and I were flying back home to Europe. After some amazing months in Australia and New Zealand, we decided to stop in one more city on our way home. Dubai!! I am telling you it was the best decision we could make and I am looking forward to visit the UAE again. We had the best time in Dubai.





When we touched down in Dubai, we were honestly pretty done after our 16 hours flight from Brisbane and it took us the first night to get over the fact that no one was running around in flipflops  anymore or went in the supermarket with a bikini top and shorts on. (Not that we expected to see that happening in Dubai) The next morning after loads of sleep we started our 2,5 days Dubai adventure.
About the dress code, we noticed that people may stare at you a bit when you wear shorts and a top, but if you don´t mind, you can basically wear what you want (except if you go in a mosque etc.of course). We always started the day with a good breakfast at our hotel. Then the first day we went to the Waterpark, but we might have been to the smaller one. It was a lot of fun anyway, so I didn´t matter. Afterwards we took the bus to the famous Mall of the Emirates. Oh dear, that was definitely one of my highlights. They have everything there, really everything. It was like all my favorite stores and restaurants from around the world combined in one big shopping paradise. The best thing Dubai has two of these fun malls. We visited Dubai Mall later on the same day. The Dubai Mall is attached to the world´s highest building the Burj Khalifa and also it is surrounded by a nice outside area. To go up at the Burj Khalifa you can decide if you want to go all the way to the top or just until a certain floor . We didn´t go all the way up, just because it was quiet expensive and remember we had been shopping right before;) The view was amazing:








 The following day started with tired feet and a later breakfast. We had been shopping till almost midnight. Another great thing about Dubai, the shops are open very late. (I am guessing because during summer it is too hot to go anywhere earlier)For our last full day we had planned a desert safari which I would highly recommend, but be aware you might get a bit sick if you are not a big rollercoaster fan. Yes, the desert isn´t a rollercoaster, but going over the dunes can certainly feel a like it. After seeing the sun go done behind all the dunes we were driven to a desert camp for dinner, the last highlight of our amazing trip. The food was delicious and you could get Hannah tattoos, ride camels and enjoy the evening dance show before we headed back to the city.








Dubai is a city like no other with loads of activities that you might not find like this anywhere else.

Hope you are having a fabulous week so far!!
