Hello from Dubai

Hello from Dubai
Good morning, afternoon or wherever you may be! I just happen to be in Dubai and wanted to say hello! I was convinced today was Monday and thus completely forgot to schedule a blog post for today. My solution? Taking with my on my first ‘day’ in Dubai.

Ladies Taxi

Pink Taxi Dubai
There are special taxis in Dubai for women driven by women. They are known as ‘Ladies Taxis’ and have a pink (!!) roof. Men alone are not allowed in these taxis, only when accompanying a woman. I really wish we had these kind of taxis in Europe! Makes you feel safer when taking a taxi by yourself.


Breakfast in Dubai Fresh Mint Tea in Dubai
Our hotel serves a lovely and very international breakfast. You can literally get everything you want. Miso soup and sashimi for breakfast? No problem. I kept it simple with an almond croissant (my favorite croissant ever), some fruit and fresh mint tea with honey.


Skyline Dubai
View Burj Khalifa
And this is the view! The gym on the 17the floor over looks the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world. We bought tickets to visit this giant this week! My dad is slightly afraid of heights although he refuses to admit it. I’m curious to see how he’ll handel the Burj Khalifa! By the way did you know that Tom Cruise literally sat on the top of this humongous building? Those pictures really make my stomach do a cart weel.

Working in Dubai

Well we’re off to see the city now! Hope you are having a great day or night! Stay tuned for more Dubai posts this week.

With Love,

Elise Mooijman

    Omg yes I saw those scenes in the Mission Impossible movie, crazy minutes (especially when his glove faltered)! Have fun in Dubai!

      I know right! Can’t imagine sitting on the top of that, especially as calm as he was!
