What can I say other than "I wish I could stay......4-EvEr"
The beaches are Pretty but I really really wanted to bond with the turtles. I promised myself not to buy any more tourist crap, somehow we ended up coming home with a 15 pound wooden turtle
(but i love her)
Our only scare was driving on the other side of the road with massive ditches on both sides that the car could fall into Eeek.
We land and they wouldn't even let us out of the airport without having a place to stay. They counted all our money asked how many credit cards we had and how much money was on them.
Turns out backpackers
are not aloud in Seychelles. I don't know how we got in
seeing how we're pretty much all of the above
Our Pad- the cheapest place to stay on the whole island
Well what can we say, other than OnE of the reason we headed to Dubaiwas for the 777 Business Class. And it was well worth it. I thought I was going to suffocate on the flight from SLC to Atlanta. And that was only 4 hours. (I was in coach and the flight was packed) However the 13 hour flight to Dubai was a breeze. I don't know how I am going to adjust when we loose these benefits.
Our Hotel had a roof top pool. We did actually get in.
Burj al Khalifa. Tallest building in the world. You may look at this pic and think "wow" building. But when I look at this pic I think "wow" SteVe your so HoT. he he
Compared to the other buildings it is pretty tall. Twice as tall as the Empire State Building if you need a reference. plus for all you mission impossible fans (its in the new movie)
Another reason we wanted to go to Dubai was to snowboard indoor. Ski Dubai is inside the mall. As you can see the indoor Resort is pretty much a winter wonderland!
Fake Snow and All
So you could rent everything there but gloves. Who goes to the desert and brings gloves, NOBODY (including us). And if you know my husband we are not going to pay for something we have at home (plus they were pretty pricey). So socks it was and they worked just fine.
Steve is so CooL (ha ha)
The beach was grand, in the background is the 7 star hotel the Burj Al Arab it the one that looks like a sail. Steve and I were totally going to stay there but it wasn't in our budget (surprise surprise)
Dubai Marina- I actually really liked it here. It was super chill and the weather was awesome the whole week. So lets be honest. There really isn't a ton to do in Dubai. See the crazy building and shop. They say shopping is there #1 sport. Yep in Dubai its considered a sport.
When Steve applied for Delta they asked him how long he planned on working for them. He said "my wife will never let me quit". I'm pretty sure that is why he got hired, and at least he was being honest because I probably wont....... EVER let him quit. ha ha
