delight

please (someone) greatly.
“an experience guaranteed to delight both young and old”

In October 2016 it was a delight to take…

High Tea in the

Burj Al Arab’s

Sky View Bar

(200 metres above sea level, on the 27th floor)

and…

 

 

watch the sun setting over

The Palm Jumeirah,

in Dubai.

 

 

 

30th Wedding Anniversary

For our Thirtieth Wedding Anniversary

MGW booked us a hot air balloon ride

over Melbourne.

Last year another delightful surprise with

First Class Dining aboard

The Q Train

This year it was High Tea at

the Langham Hotel

in Melbourne.

All experiences could only be described

as delightful outings.

About two years before our 2013 safari to South Africa

we were told of High Tea at the Bur Al Arab in Dubai.

At the ninth hour our trip to the Serengeti via Dubai

was changed to Kruger National Park

in South Africa.

No Dubai, unless a long detour!

It took us another three years before we had

any hope of being anywhere near Dubai.

We decided to spend a few nights in Dubai,

the Burj Al Arab is well out of our price range,

and the first thing we did was book the

Burj Al Arab High Tea

as one of our outings.

Fast forward to last week,

and MGW had book us High Tea

in  Melbourne as a

Wedding Anniversary outing.

All served on Wedgewood china…

the experience was a little different

to the Burj Al Arab…

however, both experiences

had delicious endings.

And better yet Melbourne provided us with

a teapot of freshly made tea to wash it all down.

THEN, I had to find another notch in my belt.

Had to look at Exif data, I was certain

the ISO was higher in this shot.
