This weekend in Dubai will see a mass exodus of people escaping from the searing summer heat to cooler climes around the world. Not only do the kids break up from school but it’s also Eid Al Fitr which marks the end of Ramadan so a double whammy. Whilst some will just be opting for a short break to take account of the public holiday, many will be leaving for a good month or more to get some respite from the soaring temperatures.
Is anyone else currently spending all of their time planning this years travel? I do find early Jan a little bit depressing. The fun and holidays of Christmas & New year are over, it’s months until there’s even a sniff of a public holiday and most of us are skint after over spending on presents for our loved ones. It’s always a bit of a ‘meh’ time of the year, even if here in Dubai we are luckier than a lot of the northern hemisphere and we don’t have bad weather to contend with as well.
