Our first stop was Dubai. We arrived there about 2.30 am. We thought we had found our gate to catch the flight to Nice. However, discovered that in Dubai they do things just a little bit different.
As we walked trying to find a cafe etc we discovered we had to go through a customs, passport check.
Finally we were through and could then get ourselves a cuppa, something to eat perhaps.
Don’t laugh for those who know me but we decided on Macdonald’s. They had a Mcafe so we found a seat and I went up and ordered 2 large flat whites. It was $25 UAE for the 2 or $11.25 Not that expensive lol although I had a mild heart thumping when I saw the $25 go up on the till. The coffee was lovely.
As anywhere in the world at airports you chat to the people sitting next to you. A family of 4 were on their way to Ireland to see the grandparents. They were from Australia, they had landed not long before us. They were from Sydney.
We then wandered around looked in the Duty Free shops. Lots of lovely things to buy however both of us couldn’t be bothered buying anything.
Eventually we went to our departure lounge. Again we had to go through a check in system.
The airport is having lots of building going on, so you can imagine how crazy it all was. Dubai is a very busy airport, but will be honest I much preferred Changi Airport. Much cleaner and they had an awesome transit lounge.
So back onto the next flight and onwards to Nice!
I was looking forward to watching some more movies and fingers crossed some sleep. Didn’t want to get to Nice and be that tired that we would waste the afternoon.
France here we come! It’s scary because you want to get there, but you know that it goes too quickly and before you blink your home and the holiday is but a memory.
