Day 11: BEST DAY EVAH . The adventures of Shakira and Harry Potter. We woke up and went to the breakfat rrom for a buffet/continental type brekky included in the room rate. It was delightful. Eggs, toast, fruit,yoghurt, tea, juice, muffins , pastries , the lot :) . We went back the room for a little nap seeing at the night before was a late one. PAcked our bags and walked to the creek were we got this little boat for 1dhs across to the other side. We strolled through some more souks getting called shakira and harry potter some more before we stumbled across the the cutest arabian tea house where we got some lunch. It was so perfect. And Id go as far as saying one of the best tuna salads and tea i’ve ever had. We then walked to the train station where we were getting picked up by a driver to go on our Desert Safari. Rafik picked us up and it was only James and I in the car. We drove about an hour to where the dune buggying was. Went through a very brief safety briefing and set of.We got a double dune buggy and James drove first. I was so scared. But it was fun :) until james bogged us and tried to reverse out and in doing so spun a tonne of sand onto me. I then decided to drive and teared it up . Rafik then took us for a bit of 4wd and we drove past a camel farm where we saw a 1 day old baby camel. so cute. We then headed to the camp where we went for a camel ride and got our valentines day kiss. We walked into this beautiful camp site with , shiisha, henna, costumes, shawrma, and sand art. Starters was shawrma made with freshly baked homemade bread. perfect. The first act came on which was fantastic. He was like and arabian ballet dancer I guess. I can’t remember the name of the dance but it was perfect. We then had a buffet dinner ( salads, roast veg, curries, rice, kebabs, kafta ect.) my god it was good. And desert was a bread and butter type pudding with fruit salad. We ate while watching the belly dancer and then jumped in the car where Rafiq took us home. We were dead so we decided to stay in and sleep. The best valentines day to date.

Day 10: Iv’e been in Dubai the past couple of days hence the late posts. I had such a relaxing day on thursday. I stayed in, drank tea, read books and watched the book thief and then ordered lebanese from Al Rousha. Before I knew it, it was time to pack my bags and meet James at work to drive. The drive takes about 1.5hrs but with the traffic its about 3hrs. Don’t worry we had best of 90s music radio station blasting. We arrived at out accomation. It was in Old Dubai and we stayed in and old heritage building that had been turned into a guest hous. It was cosy and comfortable and gorgeous! . We then went for a walk through all the souks (gold, textile ,spice ect.) they were amazing . BUt definately got hassled more here than abudhabi. I got called shakira and james, … wait for it… Harry Potter. hahahahah. We then got a sharwma (want we call a 4am kebab). We got a taxi to the Burg Khalifa( tallest building in the world)  and watched the fountain show which was amazing.
