Almost snap!

though in my case extend Magaluf/Tenerife to Lanzarote / Gran Canaria / any of the Belearics / any such place where the idea of going away is to do exactly the same thing as you do at home, except with sunburn.

( i have been on easyJet though but that was when i was working for someone who didn't have a great deal of cash and that was on business!)

Never had any brunch anywhere in Dubai (can't say the thought of daytime alcohol in this climate appeals to me, to be honest)

additions...

1. Been to the Burj al-Arab
2. The Big Bus
3. Jumairah beach
3. SCUBA diving

oh is this a general list - i thought it was specifically what we haven't done in Dubai which everyone else seems to have done.

If it's a general list i could go on all day (but i won't) - sheltered life and all that.

It's supposed to be a list of things that you haven't done, that everyone else seems to have done.
