Winter. You cold, grey and intimidating season. You make my thoughts turn dubious, you dry out my nasal mucosa and you bore stiff my inner balance!
I am sick of wearing four layers of clothes on me, i am sick of being exposed to sneezing and coughing people all around me, I am sick of the endless cold that intrudes my warm heart, and I am sick of the absence of the mind’s most important inspiration: The sun!
I know, spring is almost one step away, but I cannot wait anymore. My mind and body feel like a withered thistle, that someone had forgotten to water for months. So, tonight I am going to do something about it. I will escape this depressing environment, if only for an instant. I am going to Dubai.
Considering, that I will be there for only one day, this might sound a little odd to some of you. And if I was not working in the travel industry, maybe I would have chosen to go or do something different. But still, it is a privilege that comes with my job. And without boasting or showing off about it, I am most happy to take advantage of this benefit.
Dubai is a great place to go during winter.
- First of all, the climate is moderate during winter season with comfortable temperatures around 28 ℃
- Hotels are utmost luxurious and you get great deals if you can go during the week
- With gratitude to Emirates and other airlines, you can reach Dubai nonstop from lots of international cities, sometimes even twice a day and flight times are moderate
- It is food heaven and offers a wide range on traditional and international cuisine, for every taste and every pocket
As I have been many times before, this time I am planning only to relax a bit in the sun and let my mind wander. Soaking up the warmth, having a freshly squeezed juice by the pool, maybe a massage at the spa, a little workout in the afternoon, finishing the day off with local food. In other words, 24 hours of not having winter! Ah, I cannot wait:).
