Day 2 of my wombat plus one holiday. I had got up at 6:30am and Davo, Livy, Lozzy and I got into our exercise clothes and went for a lovely walk through the beautiful Dubai. And after a tiring walk we went to the hotel buffet breakfast and had a good feed. I had two pancakes with maple syrup, orange juice,a waffle with Nutella and bacon and eggs. I'm telling you right now it was a good delicious breaky!
After breaky we all got into our swimmers grabbed our towels and sunnies and went to he pool straight away.
After we had a swim at the pool we went back to our room and Livy had a sleep whilst lozzy davo and I chilled out for a bit.
When Livy woke up we went and got picked up by a desert safari people. We drove a whole and stopped at a little Dubai village and went to the toilet.
A man came over to us and out a big looking cloth on Davo's head, I was thinking"what is that" but when lozzy explained that people wear this instead of hats so they don't get burnt and to keep the sand away from your face I got one too.it was actually quite comfortable to be honest. Livy got a beautiful princess crown that she thought was like Elsa hahaha.
We hooped back into the car and drove to the desert safari activities.
First we did4 wheel driving and !OMG! It was so fun. The car was bouncing up and down every single hill and and turn. It was so much fun 😊😊😊
After the 4-wheel driving had finished we arrived at a beautiful, cosy little camp with lots of little huts, tables and chairs😁The first thing we did was get some drinks because it was so hot. Then we went and I got a Henna Tattoo. The lady was so talented, that she just free-handed all of the drawings without even thinking about it for a second. It was amazing and I absolutely loved it.😎😎
When the lady had finished my Henna Tattoo and went and rode a camel. I was so fun, but it was a bit sad for the camels as they aren't designed to carry people.😢The camels have webbed feet so they can grip to the sand. They have two layers of eye lids so that they don't get sand in their eyes and their double jointed!!!!!!
I was a it nervous a first because I had to be at the front of he camel. So I got upon the camel and OMG how high it was from the ground. We started walking around in a circle, it was AWESOME 👏
After the camel rides we went and sat down at a table and just chilled for a bit. It became dark and it was announced that there would be some special dancers coming to perform. A man came onto the stage wearing a pretty cool looking dress with lights and sparkles. He was doing a traditional Russian Dance and it was so cool. The man had these circular shaped hats(+5) that he was spinning in his hands while dancing. He was very talented.🕺🏻👞👞🎩
After the man had finished the dance we all went and had dinner. There was lots of different types of foods including pasta, salad, fruit, chicken, lamb, baked veggies and lots more other things. I had a variety of things. It was so good
When everyone had completed dinner a beautiful lady walked onto the stage wearing a sparkling white costume. She was doing belly dancing. That is where you can roll you belly muscles up and down and move your hips but it is actually all through your knees... isn't that bizarre!!!
Anyways, after all the b auroral dancing we got picked up by the desert safari people and drove home. It was a very big day but was amazing and I had lots of fun.

After a long 14 hour flight we got off the plane and oh my goodness it was hot in Dubai - it was 45 degrees. We got a cab to the hotel. It was called the Sheraton hotel.
When we got settled into our rooms we went to the pool sunbaked and had lots of fun swimming in the refreshing water.
After the swim we went back to our room and had a shower then got into some comfy clothes and went and got dinner. I had a Philly steak roll and it was amazing!!!
After dinner we watched the fountains at the burge kalifa. It was beautiful as the water sprayed up into the air like a million feathers had been coming up from the water. It was so much fun.
After the fountains had finished we all went home and had a shower and went to bed. It was such a fun day 😊
