We both slept a lot better – looks like turning-off the air-conditioning in the room helped!
It’s our last full-day in Dubai today. I got up at 8am and Ann followed. Breakfast was less busy than normal and there was a lot of new faces. I guess quite a few had checked out last-night.
We took a short five-minute taxi-ride to the Dubai Marina Mall. Wow! what a place.
The things we noticed immediately were:
- It’s so clean…
- It’s so large…
- and err, it’s so empty!
It had a Waitrose that had only opened last November, so we had a quick look round and then headed for the Mall’s coffee-shop on the top-floor – Seattle Coffee Co. Luckily it had an area where you could sit outside where there were some stunning views of the Marina. A lot of it was still under construction, but it still looked great.
We got back to the Hotel about 12 noon and decided to spend our last opportunity here, in the sun. By 2.30 we’d had enough of the heat and headed back to the room. We booked a table in the restaurant for 7.00pm – tonight’s theme is ‘Italian’.
A quick infusion of chocolate was soon followed by a trip to the Gym. This is our third visit – a personal record for me! 🙂 We left the gym around 4.00pm and headed for the room (after I got the key-cards replaced having lost them somewhere!). We had a short snooze and then began packing as we’re checking-out tomorrow.
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s! My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community. But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure! On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there are no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
