Weekends in DubaiLike0

Weekends in Dubai are never enough! AΒ 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,Β  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!

  • I miss you with all my heart and soul...
  • A year ago I was having breakfast with those beautiful giants. An unforgettable experience. Thank you all for your beautiful comments on my previous post πŸ’•
  • I struggled to choose a caption for this image because they say that you are what you share on social media, and so, I wanted to make it count. 
Being a 'blogger' or a 'traveler' has changed significantly over the past few years. You can’t go on Instagram without stumbling upon hundreds of carefully selected, beautifully crafted images. 
The truth is, today, things are not the same as they used to be. Travel has changed and grown. The internet has given us a chance to see the world through people's eyes and to dream of places many of us never even knew existed. 
But social media has also changed travel and the nature of blogging. Sharing my travel online has today somewhat been a constant pressure and the staging of every single photo has become the business of every instagrammer. 
I have felt the pressure of keeping up and carefully selecting what I chose to share. 
I've even promised myself that I would be a leader, not a follower, and stay far away from online traveling trends that would warp my ability to offer my readers the very best & honest tips and insider reports. 
The key...is confidence... I had the chance to make every possible mistake and figure out a way to always recover from it. Once you realize that there is life after a mistake, you gain your confidence and that, never goes away,
It goes straight to the heart and once you have that, no one and nothing can take that away from you . . I hope I’ll always have the courage to live a life that’s true to who I am and not the life that others expect of me... πŸ’•[Click link in bio to read the full article] πŸ’•.
