October has been really good to me this year, especially after receiving some pretty mind blowing news that I and 20 other Bloggerati talent bloggers will be heading to Dubai in early December. Yep. We'll be travelling with the lovely Nuffnang crew, and one lucky blog reader (plus a friend) will be coming along as well, but more on that later in this post.
These last couple of weeks I've literally felt like I might possibly burst with excitement from it all. The kind of bursting that leaves a tingly feeling in the base of my stomach, like when it's going to be your birthday the next day or when it's Christmas Eve and you're desperately trying to fall asleep because you know that there'll be gifts and celebrations in the morning. I'm also feeling a little bit nervous because I'll be away from home for 9 days in total, but I know that Dubai Tourism have lots planned for us while we're there, so I'm keeping my fingers and toes crossed that this will help ease all those 'I miss my family' moments.
To celebrate, I made cake, hot tea, found my passport and then I started thinking that proper celebrations should have confetti and candles too - so out they all came. Why not, right!? This is something that I love about blogging: you can do crazy things like set up cute photo shoots for a post, plus it helps keep me creative.
I've also been keeping a little notebook these last couple of weeks and writing down a few Dubai wish list things that I'd really like to do. I am desperately wanting to visit all the Souqs (marketplaces/bazaars) while I'm there - especially the textile Souqs, indulge in some of the local cuisine, ride a camel in the desert and I would dearly love to see the Dubai Miracle Gardens, which is home to over 45 million flowers. Can you imagine how incredible that would be? There are so many more things on my list, but I'll share these with you in another post a bit later on.
As mentioned, I also have the best news that involves YOU and Dubai. One lucky reader (+1 friend) will be traveling in part with our Bloggerati group and will receive flights from their nearest capital city, accommodation and activities to do in Dubai. It's an incredible prize!!
