Its day 1 and as I write my first postcard from Dubai we have had a fantastic first day.
Last night was a long night. We have never done an outward night flight before. Arriving in the morning with the day ahead seems harder and the boys are exhausted. However we are here and its hot, hot, hot. Hoorah. When we arrived we had a bit of a chill and lunch before getting ready and heading to the Burj Khalifa for a trip to the top of the worlds tallest building. Omg it was incredible. It is sooooo high, the views blow your mind.
The atmosphere in the Downtown area is electric, yet everything seems so perfect, clean and polished. The service everywhere is excellent and the people of Dubai are the most wonderful people. Everybody we have come into contact with has been lovely.
We are staying at the Downtown Rove Hotel which is like nothing we have ever stayed in before. The hotel has a super cool vibe and is the perfect place for an affordable yet cool break. I will share more about the Rove very soon.
We dined at the gorgeous Palace Hotel at the delicious Thiptara Thai restaurant. Not only is the food incredible, and the service outstanding. But the restaurant overlooks the Dubai Fountains which we got to enjoy as we dined and they were truly breathtaking. They were everything we imagined and more. I shared a little video clip on twitter if you want to head over and see how great they are. And I have more to share later.
But for now I am off to get some much needed sleep ready for an exciting day tomorrow. x

I can’t wait to hear all about your trip to Dubai, I hope that you are all having the most amazing time xx
Ah thank you Lindsey we had an amazing time xx
I have loved following your trip over on social media, and Dubai looks an amazing place to visit. I can imagine the night flight was difficult arriving in the morning and having the whole day ahead of you. Hopefully you have caught up on some much needed sleep x
I think if you do this you need to leave your first day clear but we still have an amazing day, Joe nearly fell asleep at dinner bless him xx
I can’t do night flights, I did one once and was a total monster at the other end. Sounds like you had an amazing first day though. Burj khalifa really is something else isn’t it?
Yes I don’t think we will do one again unless its business class maybe. But yes we had a fab day and loved the Burj Khalifa x
