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’ !

Am I REALLY THAT much of a GEEK??

We’re going to be away from home for quite a long time on this trip to Machu Picchu and the Amazon, almost a month in total and probably most of it without full internet access!! EEEEEEK !!!

SO this means what??? Well for me, LOTS of reading, books to catch up on, etc. I’m just in the process of choosing what to take, best seller lists, here I come!

Although, I keep saying I’m NOT going to do any work, there is one project that I hope to work on while I’m away, I’m currently writing an eBook on how small businesses can use Linkedin to their benefit , so one of my Kindle ‘holiday reads’ will be ‘The Power Formula for Linkedin Success.”

Oh no! Does that REALLY mean I’m a true GEEK?
