Cool season – hot topic!

We have finally entered the perfect weather season in Dubai after a long, hot and humid summer.  The last few days we have seen glorious sunshine from a beautiful clear blue sky – and by clear I’m not only talking about the absence of clouds but clear as in no haze or widespread dust.

At 9 o’clock this morning it was a pleasant 27 degrees C with a little haze, but a beautiful day, nonetheless…

Living in Dubai we are spoiled with blue skies and sunshine almost 365 days a year, but for a big part of the year the sunshine is accompanied by haze or even worse, widespread dust.

When driving from Palm Jumeirah and looking towards the Dubai Marina area, all the skyscrapers look a bit dull and not that impressive, but on these brilliantly clear days – WOW!

Looking to the left, I see two of Dubai’s famous landmarks standing tall and proud – the hazy vail lifted…

Burj Al Arab – famous for putting Dubai on the map and costing? Well, who cares anyway! Off in the distance there is Burj Khalifa – the tallest building in the world. Both spectacular in their own way and both on my “blogs to do” list.

Just as I was about to go out and embrace yesterday’s glorious weather – reality kicked in! No, it didn’t start raining, at least not from the sky… Memories from earlier days in Dubai started haunting me. “Think positive, Randi, think positive” I chanted to myself.

Wondering what happened? Read all about it in my next blog…

In February 2016 I moved back to my native Norway after 13 years in Dubai, preceeded by two years in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Before becoming a full time expat in 2001, I had a carrer as a travel consultant in Norway. My expat portfolio also includes six of my teenage years in Bahrain many moons ago and two years in Southport, Connecticut, USA.
