Doing little in Dubai
October 19, 2017 - Dubai, United Arab Emirates
    Well we are now heading towards home – one-third down and two-thirds to go. We woke up in time to go to breakfast at 9.30am. It was a good spread with hot food cooked to order as well as plenty of choices. We rate the Le Meridien Hotel in Abu Dhabi as 100% and this was probably 90%. Most good hotels make around 80 on our scale. After breakfast I caught up on some journal bits and pieces before relaxing and Margaret sat by the pool to read and relax. After a long siesta (still a bit...

Stirring up the Sand
August 30, 2017 - Dubai, United Arab Emirates
After our recent early starts and latish arrival yesterday we took the chance to sleep a little longer this morning before going down to look for breakfast. There was quite a spread from fresh fruit and yoghurt through to Hot English, without bacon (or at least we couldn't find where it was quarantined). Suitably fuelled for the day we stopped by the Concierge's desk to check that our pick-up  for the re-arranged Desert Safari was all scheduled and we wouldn't be sitting around the foyer...

First Leg - Second Attempt
August 29, 2017 - Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Well here we go - a second attempt at leaving Australia. We enjoyed our little stopover in Coogee even if it was unscheduled and very cold. Our meal allowance from Emirates meant we could charge yesterday's lunch, dinner and drinks last night and breakfast this morning. Without keeping track of our spending we managed to spend $164 of our $160 credit and the hotel absorbed the $4 over-run. Yesterday, in anticipation and on the advice of a somewhat cynical Concierge, we booked a 6.15am shuttle...

The alleyways of the Souk
August 4, 2015 - Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
After much soul-searching and discussion of the logistics as well as consideration of the weather we decided that we would have to miss out on seeing the Grand Mosque again. I think the changes made to the route and timing of the Big Red Bus makes it difficult to get from the Abu Dhabi Mall to the mosque and then get the return bus before our ticket expires. Margaret really wanted to go again but knew the timing would be difficult. Our alternative was to get the Big Red Bus to the World Trade...

Some Like It Hot
August 2, 2015 - Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
Despite leaving more than 30 minutes late and, according to the First Officer, battling a headwind our flight arrived in Abu Dhabi at 5:50am, right on schedule, after passing some spectacular thunder clouds lit from within by lightning every few minutes. At Abu Dhabi we were among the very few people to head toward Arrivals rather than Transit so we were through the Passport Control very quickly. Our Fast Track card took us to one particular desk and may have been subject to less scrutiny...
