Who knew you could ski in the middle of the desert in Dubai with over 100 degree weather?!

Afternoon tea with some friends! It was way too hot to take this picture outside!

I recently went on a tour and traveled to three countries and my first stop was Dubai! I absolutely fell in love with this place and had such an amazing time! I have always loved traveling ad seeing all the different cultures that I actually considered being an Anthropology Major!

My first day there I knew it would be hot but when we walked to have lunch literally right across the street from our hotel, I was absolutely covered in sweat! I couldn’t believe how hot it was and it was only 106 degrees there which is not the record high for a normal day!! We soon realized why we also never saw anyone walking around during the day because everyone does everything at night! The nightlife here was absolutely insane and I even almost was able to see the local Dubai prince at the Burj Khalifa Mall.

After spending two and a half days here while I was on my tour I really wish I could have stayed longer and gotten to experience more of the local side of things! Also, the fact that inside the Dubai Mall there was a massive aquarium AND a full size skating rink was absolutely insane. Not to mention a full blown freaking Ski Resort in a separate mall!! If you told me a few years ago that I would be skiing in a 120 degree desert in Dubai, I would think you were insane!

All in all I would have to say I thoroughly enjoyed my time in Dubai and hopefully one day I can go back and maybe even see Abu Dhabi while I’m in the area! 😉

P.S. Gotta say a special thx to Hazel and Olive Boutique for the two awesome dresses I’m seen pictured in above!

xoxo
