What is that? Exactly: The tallest building in the world - #burjkhalifa in #dubai.
Actually, the Burj Khalifa was the reason why I wanted to discover Dubai in the first place.
There are quite contested views about Dubai. Let me say, I totally understand why people don‘t like it and don‘t want to take a trip at all. Indeed, the UAE is a peculiar country and the sheikhs totally exaggerate every now and then. Yet, to me this was exactly what I really liked about it. Sometimes it just is the „too much“ which has that certain appeal to me 😃 It is simply very interesting to discover all the idiosyncrasies and contrasts. And if you like, you will also find traditional heritage and pure Arab culture a little bit outside of city center. Fun fact here: After having been there, I wanted to learn Arabic. Basically, I still want to. Why? Well, the causes are quite stupid, but I guess that is who I am 😅 First: I never liked the sound of that language in Germany, but when driving by tram in Dubai, all of a sudden I absolutely LOVED it. For some time, I even knew the sentence for „caution, the door is opening“ by heart 😂 Second: I was totally stunned by seeing the signs of Starbucks, McDonald‘s etc. in Arabic letters 😍
I absolutely would love to come back one day. Perhaps with @mrn_grmsl. Maybe not in August then, as this clearly was waaaaaay too hot. 😅 You wouldn‘t want to be outside for more than a very few minutes 🙈 I really loved chilling „on the beach“ - in the water, for that matter 😁 Actually, we’ve spent like 4-5 hours/day on the beach - and I’ve been in the water... 4-5 hours 😂 But it was sooo relaxing, you wouldn‘t believe it. Just doing nothing. Literally NOTHING. Only floating around in the ocean 😎
All in all, I only can hand out one advice: Don‘t follow the idea to go jogging in the morning. Even before 7 o‘clock when you think it might be endurable. It is NOT NOT NOT! ☝🏼 I tried jogging along the beach for 15 minutes and was totally exhausted at the end - for the entire rest of the day! 😅

Yaaay, finally our first little video from Dubai is here! made by @arnar.tomasson 🐫 Looking back we had such an incredible time during our 2 weeks stay. We met some incredible people along the way and it proved again that the hospitality in the Middle East is unlike anywhere else.
Here are some of the dreamy moments from the desert mixed with some Disney vibes 🙈
Hope you’ll enjoy and we’re super exited to show you the rest of the trip! @mydubai#dubai

Dubai, with all of its glitz and glamour rose in the heart of the desert!
We stayed on the balcony for few hours as we didn't get enough of this view.
