1 copyLooking at Mumbai from the top only to see it again a week later. 

2 copyWhat a view! Nothing but sand dunes for miles and miles!

3 copy  Yayy! We’ve entered the city of luxuries, dates, shopping, attar and gold! 

4 copy And who would’ve thought to see Salman Khan welcoming you at Dubai airport! 😉 

5 copyThe visa lines didn’t seem to end! Took forever and we were hungry! 

6 copyAfter sorting out sim cards and visa clearance, we made it to our hotel- Star Metro, Deira- Hotel Apartments bang opposite a…mall! Haha!  

7 copyWe took a brief look at our apartment and loved it! The next 8 days would go amazing! 

8 copyLunch was simple- Theplas, Shrikhand, Bateta nu shaak and some kachoris all from Mumbai because the entire week would be outside food! 

9 copyPreparing ourselves for the next few days with important groceries from New Era Supermarket- Milk, juice, bread, butter, etc. 

10 copyAfter a short nap, we get out and get going to walk at Dubai Marina! This one’s at Salah Al Din Metro station which is 2 minutes away from our hotel. 

11 copyOur first view of the tallest tower in the world- The Burj Khalifa and many other gorgeous structures from our metro ride. 

12 copyAnd we’re off, walking on the travellator which saved a lot of time and of course from getting tanned and drained walking in the hot sun! 

13 copyAfter a bit of walking, we make it to Dubai Marina. Great view! 

14 copyThis is Dubai’s Marine Drive! Beautiful and peaceful!

15 copyRomantic, no? 

16 copyWe needed this after walking a lot! Authentic Italian pizzas from Nepoletana at Dubai Marina. Chilled out dinner but too expensive so we had only 2 pizzas. After that we walked some more (Approximately 2 hours) till we reached the metro again and went back home. We could not think further and so just went off to bed and slept with a huge smile on our faces. Here’s to a great first day in Dubai!
