The stop over...

I lived all my 20 years of adult life outside my homeland, the Philippines. I make a point of going back home at least every other year; More so now than ever as Ysabelle, my 6 years old daughter, is growing and the hubby and i want her to know her roots and be re-acquainted with them every now and then.

We always fly Emirates and have a Dubai Stopover. you can book a last minute deal with them for a luxury accommodation and a discounted price at that, isn't that great! You can have a couple of days short break to know the place and its culture. Go to gold souks/market and bazaars for a shopping of a lifetime or witness IRB Dubai Rugby 7's. For a break of a lifetime, go and visit the Jumaira Mosque or the beach. A wonderful place to explore and is one of the best in the region. Etihad flys into Dubai and Abu Dhabi. It is one of the finest airlines with fantastic staff and service to boast.

Go and try a break in the Gulf. Know the people, culture and what it has to offer. You will enjoy it and go back for more.

  2. It's nice to come and visit UAE during winter months ( November to March). Dipping in the water of Jumeirah Beach ( the open beach) is awesome and relaxing......make sure that you'll visit it at noon time because it will be chillin' cold in the morning while in the afternoon, it is warm and just fine.

    Etihad Airways is the National Airline of United Arab Emirates, owned by the government of Abu Dhabi while Emirates airline is owned by the government of Dubai.

    EK terminals are situated only in DXB and Etihad Airlines termilnals are situated in AUH only.

    You must try the Desert Safari....it is really awesome.

    UAE culture is really fascinating.....even liberal compared to other Muslim countries.

  7. Oh wow, am sure Ysa will have a blast exploring her roots. She is lucky to be traveling to such wonderful places at an early age.

    Btw, when she called me and spoke to me on the phone, she has a lovely British accent already. Cute!

    Hugs to you both dear friend!

    Dubai is a massive city that seems to have sprung from now where and now caters for every and any tourist
