Off on holiday… AGAIN!

What a whirlwind three weeks I’m currently in….

  • I’ve just left my job, awaiting the holidays to be over before starting the new one
  • I’m currently in Dubai for 48 hours in between the Prague holiday (blog post to follow on this one), and the visit home to South Africa
  • I’m flying home because my sister is GETTING MARRIED!
  • We’re off to Mauritius for the full beach-wedding celebration
  • That’s a total of 4 countries in 3 weeks: Czech Republic, UAE, South Africa, Mauritius 🙂

So with all of that going on, I will not be updating my blog regularly over the next few weeks… all Something New Posts will be updated once I’m back – and believe me, they’ll be worth waiting for!

Sister love ❤

Catch you on the flip side!

Week 25: A bit of nothingness

The above is Olly’s first attempt at typing… and since I have absolutely nothing to offer for my something new this week, I’ve decided to just let this be it 🙂

Here’s Olly playing with his tail….

Week 24: Running to breakfast finale

It’s with a sad heart that I type up this post as the last Running to Breakfast in the original series 😥

My friend Nat is about to make her way on to new ventures in the big wide world and so with only Sara & I of the actual Running to Breakfast crew left, it won’t quite be the same… who knows, maybe we’ll get something similar going but for now, this past weekend was our goodbye.

Running to Breakfast crew

We headed out to Palm Jumeirah, which made it a new run for me. We parked out on the east crescent, hopped out the car, did some ‘warm-ups’ and then started walking… which of course is not the point! So we all agreed that “at that rubbish bin we start running”, and so we did.

It never gets old to say IT. IS. HOT! I forgot to check the temperature and humidity before we ran, but when we got in the car post-run, it was 38 ºC 😮

We managed 6.5 km’s that morning – possibly about 1.5 km’s of that would have been walking, but it was a good effort regardless, and an enjoyable last run with just the 3 of us.

And of course, it was followed by heading off to breakfast – and once again it involved doing a quick Google search for open places during Ramadan.

We settled on a place in Jumierah Lakes Towers – but for the life of me I cannot recall what the name is 😳 Cluster T, opposite The Pullman Hotel, Ground Floor of Fortune Tower.

It was a super yummy breakfast with many supremely healthy options which worked well for our post-run breakfast 🙂 Silly me forgot to take a photo of the food though. DOH!
