sun down friday night, uptown city lights

•Well this feels kinda nice. It's been way over a month since I last blogged, and though initially it was lovely to have a break, with a revamp of the website and a holiday in between, I have recently had itchy fingertips about getting back to blogging and it's lovely to pick up from where I left off - I hope I haven't lost my mojo!

My first post back, naturally, had to be about Dubai. I don't really fancy myself as Anthea Turner in her Wish You Were Here days (bad hair cut, and morals) so I'll leave out all the flounce and sum it up simply by saying that it was amazing.

From the moment we touched down in 35c heat I felt the electric atmosphere of Dubai sparking away at my soul. Man made down to the last grain of sand, it's hard to believe you're in the middle of the desert when you're laying pool side under a sun shadowed by enormous, futuristic buildings and malls.

What was also unbelievable (and unexpected) was the night life. I don't think I've really been anywhere like Dubai since Las Vegas during the summer of 2011 but like Vegas, Dubai sucks you in with it's style and aura and wins you over with its charm. It's quiet and loud, in your face and humble, rich and poor all at the same time and to fully explore it, you'll need to stay a while.

I have a ridiculous amount of photos, mostly of food, a lot of pretty looking drinks, some of the sunset and a few of the people I went with but you really have to see Dubai to actually believe it, I can't wait to go back!

Here are a few select photos from my week:
