After my recent trip to Dubai I started thinking about previous trips and what I plan to do next and decided to write them down.

I had the pleasure of seeing an incredibly beautiful space transformed and created for ILVE appliances and having dinner cooked for me by Giovanni Pilu of Pilu at Freshwater in the Northern Beaches.
As usual I loaded up on the canapés not realising there were several courses to follow.
Thanks for a fun night guys.
Which do you prefer, A beautiful sunrise or a beautiful sunset?
If you had the choice of doing an activity at one or the other what would it be?
If you’ve never experienced a Hot Air Balloon ride at sunrise then you must add it to your to-do list.
I just did it with Ballooning UAE and it was such an amazing experience.
You can’t take bags on with you so if you’re wanting to take a few things along like a Go-Pro, camera, phone etc then make sure you have pockets or the devices have straps because you’re not allowed to take bags and you have to run to get into the basket quite quickly. Also be sure not to wear anything restricting for leaps and bounds into said basket.
Picked up from our hotel by trained safari guides form Arabian Adventures we went out for an afternoon of dune buggy drives, camel rides, belly dancing and a traditional Arabian feast. The tour is only 375 dirham – approx AU$140.
There’s camel racing here. I didn’t even know there was a thing!
