October 2020 Roster

Another month has passed by with nothing to write about. My job has changed hugely with the effects of COVID-19 and I’m longing more than ever for some normality and exploration. I’m unsure when my job will ever return to its normal self, or if it ever will. But for the moment, I am happy…

Birthday At The Burj Al Arab

My Birthday was back in December and I was SUPER lucky as my boyfriend Alex took me to the Burj Al Arab for Afternoon Tea and planned the whole day as a big surprise! I absolutely love afternoon tea, and in over four years in Dubai I’ve never been to Burj Al Arab so this…

Costa Rica vs. Coronavirus

It was FINALLY time for me to head away on Annual Leave, and let me tell you now, I really wish I hadn’t. What a wonderful thing hindsight is, however I’m going to write a blog post over the most stressful “holiday” I had to tick off country number 72. I flew from Dubai to…

A Staycation: Fleeing To Fujairah

I managed to squeeze a few days off across Valentines weekend, and me and my boyfriend Alex had looked into going away on a little holiday. But with time approaching and the prices spiking due to Valentines, we decided to just head away for a little staycation as we enjoyed our one back in December…

Catching Up In Central Park

I’m working on a backlog of posts, I’ve been a bit lazy with my blog over the last couple of months, but I’m so glad as it’s going to give me something to crack on with until this pandemic is hopefully over and done with. I will explain more in an upcoming post but for…
