Hi everyone! Just a quick photo update post with our 3 days in Dubai! We just landed in Muscat, Oman and are spending a couple days here before heading back to the UAE. I will get back to all of your comments when I get back home (and get better internet). In no particular order because the internet is slowly crushing my soul, here are some pictures from our trip so far. Follow me on Instagram for more pictures!
Went for a run on Day 1 while Lauren took a nap. The “Real Feel” according to the Weather Channel was 137 degrees, sooooo treadmill it was! Cruising along Dubai Creek We checked out the Dubai Mall (the largest mall in the world!) and watched the fountain show – literally huge dancing fountains set to the song “Thriller.” The mall was an incredible mix of all races and ages. The sights and smells at the spice souq (market) in Old Dubai were incredible! Couldn’t resist buying some although I have no idea how to get it home without it exploding all my luggage. Wish me luck. We cruised the sand dunes of Al Sharjah, which is part of the “Empty Quarter” – the largest continuous sand desert in the world! It’s literally just endless rolling red sand dunes, just like you see in the movies. Your guide drives a Land Cruiser pretty much sideways up and down the dunes – not for those who get motion sick easily! We also got to ride a camel, but first – let me take a selfie We got a tour of the Jumeirah Mosque – absolutely beautiful inside! Went to the top of the tallest building in the world – the Burj Khalifa! It’s so hot that it was hard to see very far because of the haze, but still pretty cool. Plane selfie on the way to Oman! More pictures to come!
