Weekends in Dubai are never enough! A massive congratulations to #MyDubai for celebrating their 1 year anniversary! They have come such a long way in showing how beautiful the city is and their people who make Dubai what it really is today!

 

Here are few listings of things to do in Dubai

 

1. Rent a BIKY

To rent a bike,  call the hotline number you will find on the bike. A computer voice will ask you for the number of the bike you want to rent. After entering this number into your mobile phone you will get the code to open the combination lock on the bike. You will need to register though with a credit or debit card. It took us about 20 minutes to figure it out, hopefully you will sooner but it was such great fun along Kite Beach.

1 hour is 20dhs and so on…

2. Go Sand-boarding with ATS Travel

2 weekends ago, we went with a group of friends organized by the family run travel agency ATS travel. Possibly the most time I laughed in a long time and thankfully the weather is so fabulous in Dubai you would want to spend the whole morning or afternoon there! We booked with Manuel, [email protected]

3. Brunch at Double Tree by Hilton JBR with Pool Access

Super easy, laid back, kids friendly and you don’t need to worry about over eating. The relevantly new Double Tree by Hilton Jumeirah Beach is so laid back we went twice this month! A kid’s corner outdoor, delicious food and full access to the beach and pool!

  • In reality, if you really think about it, to miss someone is sort of missing a part of yourself. You miss the way you felt alive on adventures and sharing ideas... Because the right people make you want to throw away the plans you originally had, for a new one without having to say ‘hmm’. You just know that any adventure with them is what you crave for and, that no matter what you thought you wanted before, this is better and it’s no longer forcing things. One year ago today since I left, I’m missing my heart in Kenya. 🇰🇪
  • I still can’t get over that crazy sunrise color! A guide to tropical Salalah, Oman with @flydubai 🇴🇲 at @anantarasalalah (Link in bio) Happy Sunday!
  • I hosted the 6th social media workshop in Dubai today with such wonderful entrepreneurs - it lasted 6 hours! Reminded me on how I first started and how much I love my job!! Throwing it back to summer in Portugal where I took two weeks off and reminded myself how much we all need to step back from social pressure once in a while. 
2 more workshops to go for this month! Get in touch if you would like to join ❤️ Happy weekend!
  • Your addiction to over-thinking will come back to haunt you... Less thinking and more living 👊🏻
  • Le Liban 🇱🇧 #Lebanon
  • I found a little oasis in the middle of the desert 🌵 
What you don’t see on instagram is that I have sunk my feet in the sand so deep many times - ( Now that’s a workout for the year) I had my drone losing balance in high winds which resulted in my heart sinking over a dozen times, and have sand everywhere!! Even between my teeth!! But it’s all good :) Happy Sunday 😊
  • The outdoor season is back in Dubai!!! I’m so happy to have @zeebalife finally united with me! Picking me up when I sink in the sand after she’s done laughing! 😂

  • The beautiful infinity pool at sunrise in Oman at @anantarasalalah
  • Almost 2 years ago when I took this picture after staying a week in @sixsensesninhvanbay in Vietnam. I remember I was debating whether or not I should take the shot because it was done on my iPhone and a broken tripod. Where you following my journey then? It’s feels like another lifetime but I still remember every detail of this trip as if it was yesterday. It’s funny how a single song or a picture can bring back so many memories and how some surprisingly fade so quickly.
  • I’ve got a thousand things to say to you... and a thousands reasons not to...
  • No matter what they say... There is no such thing as work-life balance. Everything worth fighting for, unbalances your life and that's the truth. So you just make it work. 💕
  • What if your pillow could collect all your dreams and in the morning, you can connect it to a screen and watch it all over again?
