Dubai, United Arab Emirates

I have to be honest, I didn't take as many photos as I would've liked while we were in Dubai. I arrived on Tuesday at 9am and we were pretty much on the go until midnight. We found a beautiful house after two days of house hunting, and also managed to secure a car. Soooo relieved.

  Souk Al Bahar  (" market of the sailor "), a shopping mall, dining and entertainment destination with Arabian-inspired interiors. We had lunch here and caught a glimpse of the daytime fountain show. The  Dubai Fountain  was designed by  WET Design , the same company who designed the fountains at  Bellagio .

After securing a place in Dubai, we toured the Dubai Kennels & Cattery where Sophie and Chloe will be staying for about two weeks before we move into our new place. We found the most precious dog running around!

It was nice relaxing at our friend's home, which is located five minutes from our new place! I foresee us spending a lot of time at hers, or her at ours, relaxing by the pool. 

I'll take more photos of Dubai (promise) when we return weekend after next, and will write more about the city and our experience living there. Movers are packing up our place next Thursday and Friday and if all goes well, we're on the flight out on Sunday. We've got a week left in our current home! Hope your week's going well so far.  x
