The day had arrived no more Skyping, no more long text messages and extremely expensive telephone bills – Jeffrey had arrived in Dubai. I was so excited to see my boyfriend who I hadn’t seen for more than 2 months.
Eventually Jeffrey walked through the customs doors and our faces lit up as soon as we saw each other! The best way to describe how I felt at that moment, you know the first time you realize you really like or love someone you instantly get a smile on your face, your stomach is going wild with butterflies and you are so anxious you cant stop pacing or moving. It was that feeling!!!
When the long walk through all the people was over we were able to say hello… and get the awkward hug and kiss out the way (Nerves as if we had just started going out). After 5 minutes of being together it were as if nothing had changed, we weren’t living in different countries and we weren’t working through a long distance relationship. It was unreal to show Jeffrey the place I now called home, and to share this new stage of my life with him.
We had a whole array of activities lined up. We went out for dinner with my batch to Nomad at the famous Irish Village. We went clubbing to Rock Bottom with other batch mates. And No Dubai holiday is complete without a Desert Safari, visiting the world renowned Burj Khalifa and the singing fountains at Dubai Mall. The beach day was amazing mid WINTER and we were sun tanning and swimming. The one night we visited Global Village with my flat mate Alice, it’s an interesting place to go if you want to visit the world in one location. We also went Go Karting on Christmas day… I must say out of all these events I would say that Jeffrey enjoyed the Go Karting the most. As boys will be boys he was so good at the Go karting I was shocked! Shopping was also an interesting experience on weekends (Friday and Saturday) the malls are crazy busy and its hard to walk at a constant speed. I can shop with no one other than Jeffrey, he is the only one able to keep up with me and my high speed shopping sprees.
And after an amazing 21 days you know the saying time flies when you having fun…. Well the time went in a blink of an eye.
Saying goodbye was so much harder than I thought it would be. You would think that you get better at saying goodbyes, but its not true.
Happy Anniversary Jeffrey x
