Scribblings from the hard shoulder of the Information Superhighway

2006, 2007, 2009 – Dubai

In August 2006 we spent a few days at the Madinat Jumeirah complex in Dubai.

We returned in May 2007 to celebrate my fiftieth birthday.

And in October 2009 for our twenty seventh wedding anniversary.

The Madinat Jumeirah is a quite astonishing resort comprising five hotels including the iconic Burj Al Arab,
connected by four kilometres of waterways.

Bizarrely I reckon that more than 90% of photos taken by guests at the Madinat Jumeirah are taken within the hotel complex,
and I confess I’m the same.
