My dream holiday!
Yesterday we left Dubai. Wow! What a brilliant place! We had such a great time there. I hope I can go back one day. The flight there was so long! It took about seven hours. But my sister Jill and I watched a couple of films and played video games the whole time. There were lots of things to do in Dubai. I think my favourite moment was when we went to the Wild Wadi Water Park. We spent hours there trying all the different rides and attractions. When we'd finished, we went shopping. The Dubai Mall is one of the biggest shopping centres in the world. I don't usually like shopping centres, but I did like the Dubai Mall. It had an amazing aquarium, and there was a spectacular show in
the evening with fountains and music. Apart from that, we went to the beach, we had a hot-air balloon trip in the desert and we even skied in Dubai's enormous indoor snow park! We didn't go up the world's tallest tower because we didn't have time. And now we're here in Doha, another amazing place! We're setting off for the Singing Sand Dunes tomorrow. I'll tell you all about it in my next post.
