Dubai!

Last week I went on holiday to Dubai to see my cousin Emily. Emily is doing a university placement over there working for an alcohol/events company and is living a very lavish life! Much different to my own university experience where the height of exoticness was Sheffield Botanical Gardens (I wouldnt change it for the world.)

Dubai is a fascinating place, weirdly wonderfully strangely fascinating. But too hot. Way too hot. I get too hot when its 16 degrees in Manchester, so throwing me into the middle of the desert was extremely testing. I successfully managed to “keep my cool” until my last day where I had a nervous breakdown on the beach because I was too hot and was literally freaking out so much trying to flag a taxi whilst Emily laughed at the site that was me. Thanks hun xxx

I ate and drank at many wonderful places whilst I was there, take a look at my photos below! I had a great time playing with my snazzy new camera and Dubai was the perfect place to try it out.
