Coma. Coming back to the living was surprisingly easy. I may have fooled my mind into believing I had adjusted by heading straight to the gym but the pillows under my eyes told a very different story.

Burj Al Arab. Probably the most impressive piece of modern architecture to date. Exclusive to say the least. Words can not do it justice.

Wild Wadi. What better way to shake off the jetlag and any remnants of our working lives than to enter an aquatic wonderland filled with waterslides and flow riders? Couldn’t have been more right. One of the slides propelled you to speeds in excess of 85km/hr. Glad I waited 30 minutes before swimming. Park Rating: 7.5 out of 10.

Jumeira Madinat. We met Greg’s friend Brynn for Dinner. A beautiful setting and it was very clear that every Dirham spent in development was being slowly sucked from the unsuspecting patrons. Disappointed with my choice on the menu. I’m sorry but no fucken room for disappointment with those prices. Company was great and the setting was lovely. Good night.
