Travelogue from UAE, day one

Finally we have arrived The UAE after a looooong journey. We were delayed i Munich, the plane hade to be deiced and we were back in the air by mid night.  I have flown during winter before, but can’t remember the plane being deiced before, the ground crew covered the plane in a thick yellowbrown goo. This can’t be very environmental friendly, but then again flying isn’t either. The process took two hours and it was noisy , even though we were really tired non of us coul get any sleep. By the tie the plane was in the air, she was so excited about her plans for her stay in The UAE, she talked and talked but I just wanted to sleep.
I woke up with a start, “Mummy, mummy did you hear me? I want to ride a camel”
Two hours delayed we where met by a very stressed husband, he was supposed to hold a lecture in Fujairah in a little over an hour and it was about an hours drive to where we were going.
It was a long desert we had to drive through, Sam commented that there was a lot of sand  and his little sister answered “Duh, you are in Dubai” and roll her eyes.

The family is back from France

They are finally home:)

I have been by my self for nine days, this is the longest I have been away from hubby and the children. Well at least the children it has been a strange experience

As I told Hanna the longest EVER, she just sent me a look to tell me that I was hopeless and dorky trying to sound cool. 😀 They went to Southern France for Easter and I had to stay home and work. Last on the pay roll and last to get a vacation.

Sam looks a little reluctant to endeavour the waters in Nice, hard waves and pebbles is not a good combination.

In Cap d’ail the water looks much calmer so the children jumped in. Looking at the pictures they gave me I am envious.

One of the things I love about my children is that they do not always have to go to an amusement park, they are just as happy strolling through a zoo.

Nälje wanted me to post her favorites from their trip,

Turtles

Elephants

and the tiger.

I prepared a few goodies for their return, but they brought me a few treats as well. Different kinds of pates, merguez, chipolata and pistachio pudding. I’m going to enjoy myself immensely
