At this time of the year body and mind ask for a rest and we start to desire to go on vacation. At work the office never sleeps, and there is always a lot to do. So, considering that my parents are going on holiday in about 15 days, Ely and I have to stay home and work until they come back. We'll close the office 15 days in August, because it's a traditionally vacation's time for everybody in Italy and in that period customers don't seek our assistance as much as they usually do. So that will be our vacation time!!
Knowing that at that time all italians will be on holiday too, we decided to avoid Italian beaches and fly away. The biggest temptation was to buy another flight for the USA (we never have enough! We love being there!), but it would have been the fourth time in a few years and so we started to look around for other interesting destinations. Among the best fliying offers, we found a very good one for Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates. It's such a trendy location for a holiday, expecially now that the city has boomed with incredible buildings and has a fantastic luxury hotel choice. So, why not?!?
And here we are, on Aug, 2nd we are leaving for Dubai and we'll stay for 2 weeks. How exciting! We have never experienced travelling in arab countries, and we are really looking forward to it. We are also making plans to spend 3 days in the Sultanate of Oman, expecially in the Musandam Peninsula, where it will be possible to explore typical bedouins villages in the mountains and go sailing and snorkeling in the turquoise waters of the local fjords that outstrech towards the coasts of Iran. In Dubai, we will spend some days visiting the city with its souks and mosquees, but we will also find the time to relax on the beach or by the pools of the different hotels we will be staying at. Dubai it's also a shopping mecca, so we won't miss some of the incredible enourmous malls. The only problem will be the extreme temperatures expected for August, on an averange between 113°F (45°C)/122°F (50°C) with very high humidity. :( Oh my! It will be damn hoooooot!!!!
We are preparing sun screen and swimsuits!
Can't wait for the holiday to begin!
