Dubai is a great place and it is very large. After going myself and getting lost I told my husband we need a map he claimed emphatically NO we do not need a map! (whats with men & maps?) I almost titled this blog Men and maps!
---So we got lost for a very long time the first time we went to dubai. The second time my husband wanted to go I said fine but buy a map. He replied again, I don,t need a map we can get there. Note: The problem isnt getting there, the problem is getting around to where we want to go. Anyway we successfully reached where we wanted (Jumeirah Palm)after just a little bit of floundering, then its time to go to Ikea-- we get lost. I decide Ive had enough and I want to go home...lets get a map. Still no map. I go to sleep and when I wake up we are still in the same area I went to sleep at!!!! Finally he asks enough people and we get on the highway and come home. The next day he wants to go back to Dubai. I tell him, ""I am not going unless we get a map". He says ok, but does not get a map when we leave Al Ain, and when we get to Dubai we start our usual riding around in circles. I tell him to stop and get a freakin map! He says, "I dont need a map but if YOUwant to waste your money on a map I will go get one for you". So I tell him, "Yes, I want to waste my money on a map". So he goes in the store gets the map, gets in the car and says, "Can I see that map?" I wish someone had taken a snapshot of the expression on my face at that moment. then He continued to ask me for that map he uses it everywhere. I am shocked and amazed,lol!!! I dont know how many of you remember Erma Bombeck she wrote books based on family satire I used to love her books. I am going to start taking notes, so I can be the next Erma Bombeck.

Enjoy the pics they are of Dubai Marina, Jumeirah Medina, Jumeirah Beach, and Jumeirah Palm...

beyond the archway
If you look to the sides of the archway you'll see rooms this is actually the Atlantis Hotel and it sits on the edge of the arch of the palm. If you look at the pic of the palm you'll see it in the middle of the arch only thing beyond it is the Arabian sea!
