Around Dubai

Sleep

Stay at the new boutique Four Seasons Hotel DIFC, an intimate boutique-style hotel in the heart of Dubai’s business district with skyscrapers views from all around.

Afternoon Tea

The Ritz-Carlton JBR launched afternoon tea with a new menu crafted by the luxury resort’s talented Chefs that include a new Traditional Tea, an Arabian Tea and a children’s tea.

Dine

Mayta Dubai by Jamie Pesaque opened its doors in April in DIFC. This delicious contemporary Peruvian cuisine has left us craving for more every day with flavors flirting in every dish!

Life Changing Experience

All your life you’re yellow. Then one day you brush up against something blue, the barest touch, and voila, the rest of your life you’re green. That’s what life changing experience does. Fall in love with Four Seasons Tented Camps and get a chance to learn about the elephant orphanage, Chiang Rai and the Golden Triangle.

Fly

Recently, we flew with Singapore Airlines Business Class for the first time and instantly became fans! Incrdible 28-inch seat transforms into a 78-inch bed when you’re ready to turn in. Fully-flat with a cushioned headboard for greater sleeping comfort, complete with linen, duvet and pillows.

Family Destination

Last month, we flew to Singapore for a mother and daughter exploring! From Sentosa Island to shopping at Haji Lane, Singapore proved to be one of the greatest destination for children! Don’t miss out Universal Studios and the wonderful street shows!

Foodies

Food is the cornerstone of Italian culture and the iconic Grand Hotel Tremezzo located on the shores of beautiful Lake Como in the Lombardy region of Northern Italy, offers guests the opportunity to experience a gastronomic treasure trove of signature dishes, inspirational flavours and local ingredients under the direction of ‘the founder of modern Italian cuisine’ Gualtiero Marchesi and their expert in-house chef, Osvaldo Presazzi.

  • 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
