A Stroll By The Dubai Creek

Spice Souk, DubaiToday was a very special day spent with my son, doing the ‘tourist’ thing in Dubai.

We started with a trip to the viewing gallery on the 124th floor of the Burj Khalifa Tower. VERY IMPRESSIVE !

Very well managed, well organised and quite spectacular when you get to the top, nowhere near as scary as I thought. As a person who is ‘not that fond of heights’ it was a case of ‘Feeling The Fear and Doing It Anyway’
( There’s a great book by that name by the way, one of my classic reads)

We followed this with lunch at the Dubai Creek Golf Club followed by a lovely stroll through the old traditional gold souks and the spice market. I LOVE the spice market, the aromas are diverse and fragrant and for me, SO reminiscent of my years spent living in Bahrain.

A lovely day, for me, a day ¬†truly ‘lived’ !
