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!

  • Back in the desert 🐫 and I think summer just kicked in 🤷🏼‍♀️
  • I woke up right here on my back way from Voss to Oslo. 350 metres above Oslo city and right in Nordmarka forest🌳
  • I could be staring at the same mountains that loomed over passing Vikings and I’m in love... Wouldn’t you be?
  • From Oslo, I took the NSB train to Myrdal which is a 5 hour journey, then boarded the Flåm Railway, named by @natgeotravel one of the most beautiful train journey in Europe taking you through west Norway’s most beautiful scenery. Here we stopped for 10 minutes to step out of the railway for pictures. Can you see Chloè by the window too? ☺️
  • The sun doesn’t rise till around 9am, so it gave me a lot of time to sleep in. Flåm is a small village in southwestern Norway, in an area known for its fjords. It sits at the end of Aurlandsfjord. It’s peaceful, its historical, it’s quiet and it’s not a place you will find all over social media. I found these little red cabins while walking around the small village trying not to slip on the ice that covers the road! I did though, I slipped, laughed got bruised and luckily my camera didn’t fall into the water... but it was so close!
  • I’ve found Kattegat ♥️
  • I was always in a hurry to be someone, always in a hurry to become something and do everything. I didn’t waste my time on things or people that would get me nowhere. I crave a slow life, a simple life filled with adventures. No fast cars or expensive homes and for almost all my life, I’ve built a life in which I never needed to escape from. This is my beautiful reality and this photo represents that to me.
  • I was thinking of a caption that can relate to what I was thinking... but the truth is, simple... I was thinking of absolutely nothing at all... just the fact that I was waking up in the middle of a frozen sea. ♥️
  • Gelato for breakfast and it’s melting!! An obvious one ofcourse 😊 That was my next hunt for ‘inspiration in finding a little bit of Italy in the UAE’  project with @theitalianwayuae How many times a day would you have Gelato in Italy? For me, it was around 4-5!! #TheItalianWay
