My dream grad trip is to go to Dubai with my 3 best friends! We all go to school together and have been since grade 6 and 7. If I were to win this trip and become the Social Media Queen, there is no one better to share this prize with than my three best friends!

Dubai is a city in the United Arab Emirates located in the Persian Gulf. Only 20% of the population are locals. Some cool and interesting facts about Dubai:
- In spring and fall more than 300 different species of birds make the long travel to Dubai.
- Has the most world famous shopping malls for many reasons, such as types of stores, amount of stores etc.
- Has the world’s largest malls.
- The Rose Tower, the tallest hotel in Dubai is 1 092 feet tall.
- Does not have street addresses.
- Islands are in the shape of the world!
Visiting Dubai is and always will be on my “bucket list” of things to do in my life time. My friends and I have talked about going to Dubai in light conversation, as a dream or far in the future. Dubai has so much to offer, the rich culture that is much different than Canada, one of a kind architecture, and unique nature of the landscape. I want to go to Dubai because I have traveled all over North and Central America, and Europe but never the Middle East.
The Burj Khalifa
While on this trip there are things that I want to do and see… of course! I would like to visit the world’s tallest building called the The Burj Khalifa it has a needle point as you get higher. Topping 134 stories it’s not easily missed nor forgettable. While taking in the scenery of the beautiful waters, I would take a walk along the Jumeirah Beach Walk with my 3 best friends. Not only is there great scenery of the waters, behind us would be 34 skyscrapers with beach side cafes, shops and restaurants. Take a ride on
a camel’s back into the sunset. Having some absolutely fabulous dining experiences that are once in a life time and over the top in all ways possible I would start with coffee at the Burj Al Arab (the world’s only seven-star hotel) and brunch at Al Qasr Hotel (known for it’s world class buffet with the most elaborate dishes and drinks) and finish it off with
a delicious Japanese dinner at the Zuba (open kitchen areas where staff makes food in front of your eyes with the craziest presentations). To complete a once in a life time trip, a girl has to get in a once in a life time shopping trip! Visiting stores like Bebe, BCBG, Nina Ricci, Michael Kors, Valentino, and Oscar de la Ranta. While at the mall you can’t say no to a quick ski trip right?! Taking in the a 1,300 foot run down the slopes.
This trip is perfect for myself and my friends because of it’s uniqueness and all the parts of the trip have a meaning to our lives and make it special and personalized in many ways. We all love adventure, seeing and experiencing new things. Jacky, loves to ski as she is active with many sports in and outside of school. Corina, loves the beach and getting a great sun kissed look any time of the year. Quintana, adores to shop, fashion is her specialty and she always puts her personal touch on her outfits. For myself I love all of the above and more. Architecture is something that I have always been interested in, it is truly amazing what people can do when they have a passion for what they love.
