En route to the world’s most luxurious hotel, the Burj Al Arab in Dubai, we had no idea that a one-hour cab ride would have us experiencing such beauty. With elevators made entirely of gold, never ending ceilings that continuously change colour, unexpected aquariums, and some of the most magical, photogenic sunsets I have ever seen, (Melbourne you better lift your game otherwise I may never come home) we were in all sorts of foody/hotel/life-is-totally-great heaven. We dined at Japanese restaurant Junsui inside Burj Al Arab, which was covered entirely with Swarovski crystals and acted as the perfect backdrop for the ridiculous sunset/palm-tree-appreciation views. It really was a ‘Toto, I’ve a feeling we’re not in Kansas any more’ moment.
As someone who is all about immersing myself in the culture of the city I am in, I’ve been really getting around the Arabic-Fashion-Chic look. Dressing head to toe in khaki scarves, drape-y whites and Camel-Latte toned sandals, courtesy of Alohas Sandals has kind of been my Arabic uniform. It has allowed me to be comfortable, yet chic whilst travelling, and plus, I have a feeling my feet are enjoying this much needed break from black booties. I am also totally ‘in’ here as everyone wears Bethlehem-inspired sandals all day, every day.
ANYWAYS – we experienced so many amazing things in Dubai yesterday that I have had to break the content up into two parts, so stay tuned for PART II of our Dubai Adventure!
HAPPY TUESDAY EVERYONE!
