Dubai has it all.

That’s it friends, 8 months later and we are on our last night of this adventure.

We have had five days in Dubai and it has been very relaxing. It has not been warm at all, so there has been no swimming.

Our friends from KL, Pat, Kim and Cian came and stayed with us for a few days while they were on their way to Dublin, which was lovely.

We have also been to Dubai Mall and that place has everything. We went ice skating, we went in an aquarium that had a glass bottomed boat and a submarine simulator and we also managed to do some shopping there.

It is pure heaven if you are there to shop, they have everything from all the designers to h&m, zara and even cheaper brands. They also have a whole floor of restaurants, a cinema and even taxis driving people around inside.

On our very last night we went on a sand dune safari. We raced on the dunes in a Landcruiser, we had a lovely BBQ in the desert, we dressed up in traditional clothes, we sand surfed (or tried) and we rode a camel. It was the perfect way of finishing off our adventure around the world.

Tomorrow we will pack our bags for the last time on this adventure and head to the airport.

See you in London!

This was actually a quite nice ride. The only problem was holding on when the camel stood up and sat down.

Ice skating in the mall. Henry loved it at first and then after a few goes he decided he was not very good at it. Even when he actually was.

The aquarium in the mall is huge! This is just a small part of it.
