Boutique Style | Ayala Resort Ubud

“My definition of a good hotel is a place I’d stay at.” Robert De Niro

I plucked the Alaya Resort Ubud from Booking.com on a whim but my goodness it was a right result.

Intercontinental Bali Resort | Jimbaran

“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” St. Augustine

Eid Getaways

“Travelling – it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.” Ibn Battuta

Since moving to the UAE we have taken advantage of our location and travelled to many beautiful and exotic places. We have also been on some fantastic short-haul trips during the Eid breaks after Ramadan, so I thought I would share three of the fantastic places we have visited as we approach that time of year again, either just a drive or short flight away from Abu Dhabi.

Desert Camping | Abu Dhabi

“In a well-ordered universe…camping would take place indoors.” Morgan Matson

So I finally caved after many conversations, lots of cajoling and much procrastination on my part, (believe me many, many chats and persuasive tactics were used) this expat princess went camping in the desert. Last Friday, I was sipping on chocolate martinis at the 5* Ritz Carlton brunch and this weekend I was climbing dunes, sitting round the camp fire under the stars and peeing in the sand, get me and my diverse lifestyle, impressed much?
