{Dubai 2014} The Dubai Desert Safari Experience

I’ve read a couple of fiction novels set in the desert in the past couple of years. Suddenly that all feels like some sort of preparation for this moment. I wasn’t expecting to get to experience being in the desert at any capacity anytime soon and was content with just reading about it, so just …

{Dubai 2014} The Awesome Yellow Boat Tour

AHHH-MAZING. No, actually that word simply doesn’t cut it. I can think of a thousand words in a similar vein but probably none of them would be apt enough to describe this exhilarating Dubai Yellow Boat Tour experience. Beyond the feeling of freedom as you see the endless horizon stretching before you, the wind blowing …

{Dubai 2014} 24 hours at Atlantis The Palm

I haven’t learned the art of fully appreciating 5-star (and in this case, up to 7 stars!) hotels. It probably comes with the fact that we don’t live in these types of places quite often when we travel. We very rarely spend vacation days inside hotels after all, so we don’t tend to book lavish …

{Dubai 2014} Things to do inside the malls in Dubai

Bali 2014 Day 3: The day I discovered my favourite temple

I woke up the next morning feeling strongly aware of the fact that it was our last day on this trip. Last day! Before I could allow myself to start feeling blue, we quickly got ready to head out. Our driver had arranged our itinerary for the day, deciding that it was best to go …

Bali 2014 Day 2: Some unusual temple experiences

It was bright and early the next day when we took to the roads toward our next agenda located in Klung Kung. We were blessed with some lovely weather after the sky spilled quite a daunting amount of rain hours before the sun rose. It even kind of woke me up in the middle of my sleep. Anyway, with high …
