Warsaw 1

Warsaw 1st September

semi-overcast 20 °C

We left our hotel in Dubai at 4:30am. We ordered breakfast and it came to our room at 3:00am! The plane left at 7:00 and it took 6 hours to get from Dubai to Warsaw. We arrived at 11am Warsaw time. Our apartment is in the old town and has 2 bedrooms it is literally 1 minute walk to the old town square. We had a really early dinner at 5:00 local time and were the only ones in the restaurant. We had traditional Polish food: pork with plum, roast duck with red cabbage and beetroot puree and my dad had chanterelle mushrooms....fresh from the forest! On the way to the restaurant we saw an old lady selling dolls. They were really cute and I got one and called her Zytha which is Polish for 'rose'.

Dubai 3

Dubai 31st August

sunny 42 °C

Today we went back to the Aquaventure but before we went on the rides I got to swim with the dolphins in Dolphin Bay. I got to kiss, hug, play and dance with a dolphin.We had a dolphin called Dennita a 7 year old girl with 3 boyfriends (she is one popular dolphin!). Being able to get so close to the dolphins was my favourite part of the holiday so far. After my amazing time with the dolphins my big brother and I finished going on all the rides at Aquaventure, there are so many!!!!

Afterwards we went to the Lost Chambers which is the aquarium at our hotel. At the aquarium there are Jelly fish, Sharks, lobsters,sea horses, Stingrays and very bright and colourful fish. Then we went back to our room because we had to wake up at three o'clock the next morning!!!

We went on a lot of rides together then went back to the hotel on a buggy. At 3 o'clock we went on a desert safari. On the safari we went over the dunes which was like being on a really long roller coaster. We went to see a falcon show then the Arabian desert sunset. We went to a camp in the desert , we had a native style dinner and my dad and I rode a camel. My mum and I got Hanna tattoos on our hands. We got home at 10 o'clock.

The hotel is huge and it has its own water park, aquarium and much, much more. After we had a nap in our room, we were really hungry and went for Chinese yum cha at YuAn, a fancy restaurant at the hotel.
