Late afternoon was spent packing. Then we strolled through the local Marina and explored the local stores. For dinner we headed to the Westin hotel for the "best pizza" in Dubai.
Finally our trip was almost at an end. We had warm hugs and embraces and then grabbed a taxi to the Dubai airport. Checking in was easy, although the lineups for immigration looked daunting. The options for shopping and eating at the airport were limited. We were happy when at 10:45 pm we boarded our Air Canada plane. This plane was more modern than the one we flew to Barcelona. It was pleasant, but economy in Emirates was a better experience than our Premium Economy in AC. We manage to stay up for the first 5 hours of our 13 hour journey, hoping to minimize jet lag.
We arrived in Toronto at 5am and we were soon home and back to bed.
We look forward to planning our next trip very soon.
