Aquaventure, Atlantis, Dubai

Aquaventure Dubai

This week instead of chatting about an actual destination or holiday it's more of an 'activity' post.

Aquaventure is the waterpark attached to the Atlantis hotel in Dubai.

When we first arrived in the UAE we used to visit it all the time as it is such good fun and a really good day out. Unfortunately, we didn't make it there last year with moving and hubby changing jobs, the year just literally flew by and we ran out of time.

We will be going there this year for sure! We love the lazy river with the rapids which is great fun! They do have a few other rides if you're more of a thrill seeker, but for me and hubby the lazy river is just perfect for us. 

The grounds are lovely, you have the beach with the Burg Al Arab in the distance, food outlets, 'Shark Bites' is always our 'go to' place, the burgers are lush and huge! We made the mistake of ordering a double cheeseburger one time and they were absolutely massive and we couldn't move afterwards, ha!

As the waterpark is attached to the hotel alcohol is available. A cheeky beer at lunch time is always nice!

If you're planning a visit to Dubai, I would thoroughly recommend a trip to Aquaventure. I would say it is one of our favorite days out in Dubai. Especially in the height of summer where the temperatures are scorching, it is so nice to float about and be in the water all day, there is no better place to be!

If you've been here a while you'd know that this blog was originally called Suncream and Sparkles ~ which I have written about why I changed my blog name  here . Even though I do love my new blog name and I don't regret changing it I do wish I had taken more time and consideration in the very beginning when first starting my blog, or at least before buying the domain. You see blogging, even now for me who's been doing it for a fair few years, it really is a constant learning curve where you're always discovering new ways and new ideas to tweak and improve your blog.

Mil Palmeras

Happy Thursday guys, hope you're all well. I'm just popping on here to show you a few pictures I snapped quickly today while we were at Mil Palmeras Beach. We popped to Mercadona this morning, well more lunchtime(ish) as we are sleeping in so much lately, but that's for another day. So, we picked up a few bits for the weekend and grabbed one of their sushi boxes for our lunch on the go. fyi , the best supermarket sushi I've had! After our trip to Mercadona we headed for Leroy Merlin in La Zenia as we needed to get some more bags of sand and some gravel too for our little diy garden project. I say little, but it's turning into quite the construction! Keep an eye on my  insta stories   over the weekend for updates. En-route to Leroy's we stopped off at Mil Palmeras to eat our sushi by the sea. Mil Palmeras has always been one of our favourite places here on the Costa Blanca South. Actually it was one of the first places we went to after the lockdown last year.  To

Looking for compounds in Riyadh

When Mark was first offered the job in Saudi, actually even before that when we were waiting in anticipation for the job to be offered we knew our first choice of accommodation in Riyadh would be on a western compound. We wanted our new place to be a home from home. Even though we have no problem whatsoever with following dress codes or anything and it actually doesn’t bother us in the slightest covering up. We sometimes, because of the world we’re from, being a westerner we wanted that little bit of ‘normality’ from our home life that we’re used too. We like to go on walks in the evening so it’s nice to be able to just pop on your shorts and vest and go for a walk without thinking and also being able to pop to the mini market for a pint of milk and a loaf of bread. Probably one of the biggest reasons for us to live on a compound is that we like to swim, sunbathe and be at the pool together. Which for us is a big part of our life. Another thing we like about compound living is the esca
