|The ladies lounge|
When we would return from the beach he always appeared with a glass of peach wine, it was so refreshing.
Anyhow one day he said the penthouse is empty would you like to have a look around, me being me I jumped at the chance, although not dressed for the occasion as we hadn't had time to shower from coming up from the beach. I love looking around houses, hotels etc so this was a real treat.
This is certainly the largest dining room table I have ever sat at. I am not sure but I think it sat 12. The table was solid, I would hate to have to move it, let alone polish it. All the decoration in gold is gold leaf, it is over the top but then that's what they pay off.
|What a grand staircase|
|This bed rotates - not for me|

|Ready for a night out|
Can't believe it but Gary had his eye's closed. These two flirt terribly when they are together, good job we live so far apart!
Travelling to Dubai became so much easier once the flights started from Newcastle. I have only taken really ill once in Dubai and we were terrified when the floor staff wanted to call the doctor. Even though we had letters to say that I require morphine you are always worried you could be locked up. We were out at the beach bar when the pain started, by the time we reached the hotel on the golf cart I couldn't stand straight for the pain. I think we were staying on the 14th floor and it seemed to take forever to get there, thank god we weren't on the 20th. We had pretty much kept my illness a secret but from then on everyone who served us in the Burj knew I wasn't well.
|Mirela and I|
We have got to know so many nice people who work out there and if you ever wonder where to go for winter sun I would totally recommend Dubai. One thing I will say an evening in February and March can be quite chilly so you do need a night wrap or a jacket.
