Old Dubai & Abra Rides on the Creek …

_MG_4041-1Hey everyone … I’m back again today catching up with a post about one of the things we got up to with Paul and Rachel when they were here last week … one day we took them up to the old part of Dubai around the Creek …

_MG_3959-1 _MG_3961-1 _MG_3963-1 _MG_3966-1We stopped by the Dubai Museum for a wander through …

_MG_3969-1 _MG_3971-1Followed by a trip through the souk where Paul and Rachel picked up a few items as we browsed around the stores …

_MG_3973-1 _MG_3977-1 _MG_3990-1 _MG_3993-1 _MG_3989-1 _MG_3995-1We then grabbed some lunch at a little creekside restaurant … the food there is pretty good with a selection of Middle Eastern dishes …

_MG_3983-1 _MG_3985-1 _MG_3986-1The Mint Lemonade here is actually really really good too … not too sweet with just the right amount of sharpness …

After we had finished stuffing ourselves with food we hopped onto an Abra for a ride around the Creek …

_MG_4010-1 _MG_4078-1 _MG_4096-1 _MG_4092-1And I managed to tick off the first thing on my 29 BEFORE 29 list … Getting Perry on an Abra …

_MG_4013-1 _MG_4019-1 _MG_4026-1 _MG_4029-1 _MG_4032-1It was a lovely ride around the Creek … and even though it was still quite warm with the sun out … the breeze on the water helped keep things bearable …

After the Abra ride we went back through the souk as Paul and Rachel wanted to get a couple more things before heading home …

That is it for now …

Till next time …

  1. Love love love your photos. Would you believe after nearly 21 years here I still haven’t been inside the Dubai Museum? Oh good thing there are still not a lot of seagulls at the Creek – my sister got pooped on big time when we took a ride up and down the Creek once. Ick!
