We had two swimming pools (and a jacuzzi) at our "Al Hamra Fort Beach Hotel" but nothing beats a combination of a hot, sunny day, a warm, clear, blue sea, a sandy beach and a soft breeze.

The service at the hotel and even on the beach was fantastic. Every parasol had a special button. Press it and a waiter would come running to take our orders...hmmm, cold Chardonnay and a plate of Gamba's please.

Many different birds would join us at the end of the day, looking for scraps of food. Some even thought a special serenade, might do the trick. Sorry mate, not even a crumb left.

Guess where I am?

I thought it a good idea to have a little break and go somewhere warm, for a week. My friend Ploni decided to come with me, so here we are, In Ras Al Khaimah, in a fantastic hotel by the sea. Good weather guaranteed!
We're spending a lot of time relaxing, eating and swimming in the warm sea but have also done a sight seeing tour of the city (with body guard) and this evening Ploni and I will go on a desert safari (incl. Bar-b-q, belly dancing etc.)

Would love to have stayed at this amazing hotel (below), but lunch alone (excl. drinks) costs € 120,- p.p.
