A lot has happened since my last post. A whole summer has whizzed by and here I am, five months later, in the very early stages of a two-month trip, which will take in China and Australia. But first I am in Abu Dhabi, staying with my sister and her family. Hence, the picture above.
I've stayed in some amazing hotels in my time, but this Barbie-themed bed (note the duvet cover and matching pillow slip) has to be the most interesting yet.
