Some places we've been and some places we're going.

Dubai to Glasgow

We were woken by a phone call at about 4am, someone who hadn’t taken into account the different time zones consequently we were packed and out on the street before 8 o’clock. We went to find a cafe where we’d had delicious food before but it wasn’t open so we walked to the big supermarket, Carrefour. On the way back to the Abras or water taxis we tried to avoid the traders in the souks, Alex was over their moustache fixation but we saw lots of closed doors so I think we were too early anyway.

Our flight was supposed to leave at 2:35 but was over half an hour late, that was an omen, we just didn’t realize it at the time. It certainly wasn’t an enjoyable flight.

Glasgow welcomed us with rain so the sandals and lightweight clothes have been put back into the cases and it’s on with the jeans, jumpers, jackets and sneakers.

  1. Thanks for the running commentary, the good the bad and some of which sounds like trying to drive around in this post car race, obahn and unearthly delights city. Colours of clothes are wonderful and you look so good in Dubai…I don’t mean the miniscule hotel pic which I can’t see!! Sorry I’m having trouble with laptop…batteries etc so I can’t communicate. Hope all goes well in coming days. It is great to see the beautiful countryside. Thanks and fun to you both.

  2. So glad to hear you have arrived safelymin Bonnie Scotland. We went to see a show at the Festival Theatre last Friday night called ‘Scotland the Brave’! Bagpipes, dancers, singers, two choirs, a fiddler, all accompanied by the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra. Fantastic, stirring the memories of iur visit to Northern Scotland last year. Beautiful country. Enjoy! x πŸ˜€

  3. I tried to find you on the balcony but just too many balconies. You could have worn red. The colours of the clothing are beautiful. I am amazed that there is a river in Dubai. I always think it is desert.

    • OK Kit, it was a joke test but if if you count 10 balconies across from the right and 5 down from the top I’m there. πŸ™‚

    • I was amazed when we flew over the countryside just how many rivers there were and how many little settlements were dotted about places that seemed completely inhospitable. I think Dubai just has the one “creek” but in comparison it seems ridiculous to call the Murray a river.
