This is one for all the thrill-seekers and adrenaline junkies out there. Skydiving is one of the most amazing things I’ve ever done. This should be on your bucket list if it isn’t already. And I couldn’t have wished for a better place to do it than over The Palm Jumeirah in Dubai. What an incredible view you get from up there. Wow.
Flyboarding. Now that is fun. Fun but a lot harder than I thought it would be. If you’re looking for some action on the water this is the thing to do. Oh and fountains. Go see the Dubai Fountain. Amazing. Thanks to Searide Dubai for the fun time on the water.
On this day I tried out scuba diving for the first time. I thought I could try it in the sea but as I had to find out that is not possible without any prior experience so I had to do it in the pool. It was nice getting to know the gear and breathing underwater for the first time feels very weird.
On my second day in Dubai I went out to explore a few of the touristy spots of the city. It was a sightseeing day but a lot of fun. From top of the Burj Khalifa you can see over a lot of the city although the observation deck on the 124th floor is only 452m high. The whole building is 828m high.
I’ve been reading a lot about Solo Travel in the last couple of weeks or even months. I was fascinated by the idea to explore the world and what better way to find out if you’d like to travel the world alone than to try it out. Now, I only did a short trip of a week to the United Arab Emirates but it turns out, I like to travel solo.
Last day in Rome! Well, not even a full day anymore.
Obviously we also had to leave Italy to visit the Vatican. This is definitely a must. After standing in line forever I was really impressed by the size of St. Peter’s Basilica. It’s huge inside but the stairs to go up are really really tiny. And once you’re up it’s tiny and crowded but definitely worth it for a great view over the city.
As we had to learn on our second day in the capital of Italy, Rome is not built to deal with a lot of rain. It was coming down quite a bit and filled up whole subway stations. And taking the bus back home felt more than a boat ride. Besides our boat ride we also looked at old stuff. Like really old.
Ok this is a first. Not the first time on an airplane or the first time in Italy. But the first time filming my travels. I went on a short city trip to Rome with my brother and my mother. Short doesn’t mean bad, we still got to see quite a few spots in the city.
