Friday, August 28, 2009So at the moment I'm in Dubai and in a few hours I'll be boarding a flight bound for Tallinn, Estonia. I've wanted to go since 2002, and unlike some other leave trips, I'm starting to get really excited/nervous about the trip for some reason. Similar to what I felt like on my first layover to London - now if I get a London I just see it as a Marks and Spencer's run than a 24 hr holiday. The spring in the step is back :-)
I've been busy with flying lately, more so than I've ever had since I started this job. I'm going to list my trips in point form to show you all how crazy it really has been here.
The trip to Perth was very last minute - work had given me 4 days off on my roster, and I had leave coming up that was being spent elsewhere. I received a text earlier in the month from my brother letting me know that I was going to be an auntie, so the need to be with family took over and I booked a flight home. The trip was good, cooked some dinner for my Dad, saw Mum a few times, shopped for food to enjoy back in Dubai, and caught up again with Traytable which was awesome. As far as blogger meet ups go I've now seen her more times than Ben, which is strange considering we're not in the same city.
So that's all that's been happening really. Of course at the moment it's Ramadan in Dubai (part of the reason why I'm spending so little time here) so roads around my apartment have been blocked by cars that have been randomly parked. There's quite a large mosque behind my building and I think both Dubai and Sharjah residents go there for prayer, so coming back from a 14 hr Melbourne flight this morning and seeing the roads blocked with cars (and people praying outside the mosque due to it being so full) was a first for me.
