Tomorrow, one digit temps!

Prague

And just like that, I’m leaving sunny Dubai for a trip to winter wonderland tomorrow morning! Remember when I listed 5 probable destinations (from among the many destinations Fly Dubai flies to) to pick some couple of weeks ago? I’ve decided – PRAGUE.

Why Prague?

I’m going with my 12 year old daughter on this trip and since we moved to Dubai 9 years ago, she has forgotten what real winter feels like. I asked her to choose between warm and cold (Prague and Zanzibar were close contenders) and she chose Prague after looking at Google images of each destination. Also, we’re looking forward to see the Christmas market at the Old Town square. Unfortunately though, due to the terror events that happened in Paris, Prague’s annual main event – the lighting of the Christmas tree at the Old Town square is being cancelled this year.

Still there are more reasons to go. I am sure there will still be Christmas lights around to make us feel the Christmas spirit. One of the big reasons is that this is a great chance to bond with my pre-teen daughter.

I won’t lie, I don’t really look forward to the cold and wearing thick jackets but I look forward to time alone spent with my eldest. Since Benjamin was born, I know I’ve been pretty much partial to the smaller one, giving him more time and Pristine has been putting up a brave front and being really understanding and helpful. Deep inside, I know she longs for the time when it was just the two of us. So we’re making this trip together, an all girl trip, for the first time.

Well, I won’t make this long, I’m still floating from the idea of going away again but at the same time, a little sad I’m leaving Benjamin behind. I’ll be updating frequently from my social media channels, you can take a peek of what we’re up to via my Twitter, Instagram and my blog’s Facebook page.
