As much as I love travelling and exploring new destinations around the world, I live in a city that has so much to offer! My best friend Lucy last came to stay 2 years ago, so in search of some winter sun, she flew out to stay with me in Dubai for a few days.

I had planned a few things for us to do, as we’d already ticked off a few items on the list previously, but with an ever-changing city, there were still more to be seen!

This is going to be the final instalment of my mini “Staycation Series”!

As you may remember, my sister Lizzie and her boyfriend Jarett came to stay with me in Dubai. Lizzie had visited Dubai before (but not for quite a few years!) and it was Jarett’s first time visiting, so we tried to make the most of it and do/see as much as we could squeeze in!

On their last day, we decided to visit a lovely part of Dubai that we still hadn’t had time to see – the Marina!


The Marina is a really nice part of Dubai. It’s full of crazy skyscrapers, and since it’s mostly Western expats, there are lots of nice cafes, restaurants and bars. It’s also one of few “walking-friendly” areas in Dubai, as there’s a path all along the waterfront.

We strolled along enjoying the lovely sunshine, and decided to stop at Pain Quotidien for a coffee.


Jarett is ready for his coffee! ^ 😀
