The second part - Dubai! Possibly the most extreme opposite to Stockholm. An average of 29 degrees and hot hot sunshine, insanely huge shopping malls boasting aquariums/catwalks/waterfalls/gold, rickety wooden boats, pristine white beaches, endless-reaching skyscrapers, the world's tallest building (Burj Khalifa), indoor skiing, sheesha, Coldstone Creamery ice-cream, the Palm, world's only '7*' hotel (Burj Al Arab), more sheesha, glitzy marinas and WAITROSE!! Could it do no wrong?! Would definitely be intrigued to go back in a few years to see the crazy additions to this expanding city, and really recommend it as a holiday destination for anyone interested in visiting the place that has everything.
Post-beach tomato faces
Burj Al Arab
Sheesha - strawberry flavour is the best
New Dubai Marina
Faithful as ever!
Burj Khalifa - it's quite tall
Dubai Mall Aquarium - the world's only nearly complete tunnel thing
