Good Morning Guys, 
Finally it is weekend and I am so happy to relax a little bit and organize some stuff. During my weekend I love to relax at the pool or the beach and enjoy every single second in the sun. The weather is amazing right now so that I can start again with some outdoor shootings. The summer time was really hot so I always needed to take pictures early in the morning or inside a building to escape the heat. Sometimes it was really challenging especially with the light conditions. Now the weather is pleasant again and I can use my time on the weekends to discover new places and take some pictures. I am always really surprised how many beautiful places you can find in Dubai.

A few weeks ago I visited "Dubai Design District" also known as "D3" for the first time and I really loved the area. It is so calm during the weekends because there are many offices located around and all the workers are off on these days so that you can enjoy the calm and empty area. The big sports ground is amazing and I have never seen such a great sport offer anywhere else. It is the perfect motivation to work out and try new sports. They have also a nice skate park and a big basketball court. If you love to go out for a run you have a great route along the water and the view is just awesome.

Beside the huge sports ground you can find some nice shops in boutique style with beautiful clothes and accessory. You will find unique and really special products and that's why I really like to enter the shops and have a look around. The food offer is really nice as well and you can choose between several cafes and restaurants. Unfortunately, I never tried any of the outlets yet but some of my friends recommended me some of the restaurants. You can find all the information about the restaurants including their menus and special offers on the website of D3. 

If you are an art fan you are totally right in"Dubai Design District" because you can find beautiful galleries and fascination show rooms with great art pieces. Sometimes they have special workshops where you can be creative and follow your inspiration. The show rooms and galleries are really different and you can find a lot of art in different styles.

Best, Patty

Good Morning Guys,
I always try to update my blog as often as I can but unfortunately, my last post is one month ago and so many things happened in the past weeks. My sister and her boyfriend visited me last week and we spent a lovely time together. When family or friends visit me in Dubai I always try to show them my favorite areas in Dubai. If you never heard from Alserkal Avenue you should definitely google it and discover their website. Alserkal Avenue is one of my favorites places in Dubai because you can find a lot of unique museums with special events and different exhibitions, a chocolate factory where you can try one of my favorite chocolate bites and a cute cinema with special movies from the past. I am sure that people who love art and to discover unique places they are right at this beautiful place. They also have sometimes nice pop up events which are really nice to join. My last pop up which I have visited was an Iftar during Ramadan where they channeled a fabric hall to a beautiful evening dinner spot. They combined the asian with the arabic cuisine and I was so fascinated about the mixture so that I can say it was one of the best Iftars I ate during this time. Even though you are not a huge art fan you have some other options in Alserkal Avenue. Beside the art galleries you will find an amazing car exhibition with really old and unique cars, nice cafes and food spots where you can have tasty dishes, a beautiful outdoor area where you can relax and enjoy the pleasant October breeze and especially the chocolate factory which I have mentioned before is worth a visit. A few weeks ago I went the first time to the recently opened cinema and we have watched an old Egyptian movie which was really interesting. The cinema is equipped with really comfortable seats and sofas so that you have the feeling that you are at home at your own living room. Especially the food was really extraordinary for a cinema because beside to the well known popcorn you could also buy healthy salads and other tasty dishes which I have never seen before in a cinema in Germany.

Hey Guys,
finally you hear something from me again. Some weeks ago I shared my travel experiences from Bangkok and today I returned back from Italy. I have spent a great vacation with my mum in the Tuscany and it was amazing. We had a typical finca with a huge garden, a lot of wine grapes and a nice swimming pool. Most of the time we discovered different cities, went shopping and ate a lot of pasta. I am a huge fan of the Italian food therefore I took every chance to eat homemade pasta and fresh fish dishes. During our trip we visited many beautiful places like Pisa, Florence or Riomaggiore. I enjoyed every second with my mum and we had so much fun together. Since I moved to Dubai it was the first time that we were so long separated from each other and it was great to see her before I will fly home for christmas. Unfortunately, my dad and some friends couldn't join us during our trip because of a really important exhibition and a lot of work but however, I think my mum and me had a great time. We stayed in a small town called Tellaro and the location was perfect for some trips around. One of my favorite cities was Pisa. We visited the famous tower from Pisa and strolled around at the shopping area. It was not as busy as Florence and the parking facilities were really cheap. We parked at a parking spot which is called "Via Piave" and it costs only 0,75€ per hour. Lucca is really close to Pisa and also nice to visit. One of my favorite experience was the boat trip to Riomaggiore and Manarola. The towns are located at the coast and offer a beautiful view of colorful buildings. You can find really cute shops, tasty food and you can also swim in the ocean. It was a perfect whole day experience. There is so much more which I would like to tell you about my trip but I am sure that I will write a separate post soon to recommend you some of my travel highlights. Have you ever been to Italy?

Best, Patty
