My husband is traveling a lot due to his work. But sometimes we’re lucky and able to join him on his trips. The last trip to Dubai was one of those lucky trips. The kids were on carnival holidays for a week, and this leaves us a great opportunity to escape the cold Luxembourg weather in exchange for the sunny and hot Dubai weather. We stayed in a great area with lot’s of nice restaurants around, and we’re very happy that we were able to make some nice taste experiences and were able to try new things.
