The Road to....

I’m off to Damascus next month. Not a place I would ever have visited if I hadn’t moved to Dubai, so I’m very excited about it. Syria is supposed to be beautiful, and Damascus in particular. As usual, the joy of living in a place as multi-cultural as Dubai is that you know people from all over the world, so we’ve already been able to tap up some Syrian colleagues for hotel recommendations and sight-seeing.

And whilst enjoying sundowners at Nasimi on Saturday the lovely Melissa and I got chatting to a group of….Syrians, who were not only thrilled that we were visiting their country (and kept asking us why we were going) but have also offer tour guide assistance when we’re there. Love Dubai.
