Travel Writing - Dubai

Extracts from this document...


GCSE English - Travel Writing - Dubai The monotonous hours on the plane ended as I walked to the antique bus which drove the passengers from the plane to the airport. The cool Dubai breeze hit me for the first time like a strong scent coming from the perfume section of House of Fraser and I forced my mood to alleviate as I was now no longer tightly squeezed into the torturing seats of the plane. Fortunately, the weather had also lightened its mood and had let the heat replace the cool breeze that penetrated my skin as if it was freezing cold water. My dad was now hastily searching for our passports as he was sat down on a scorching seat in the bus. My mum, who looked as if she had been woken from a twenty-four hour sleeping marathon, was now busy combing her springy hair. On the other hand, my brother was now agitated from undergoing a mission of his own; going without the toilet for ten hours. ...read more.


We now had a ten hour stay in Dubai until our plane to go to India arrived. All we could do now was to explore the modernity of this wonderful international airport, though doing this for ten hours seemed impractical and my tired dad now had a problem on his hands. He was exasperated even further to find out that we weren't even getting a free room for ten hours inside the airport. My brother who could no longer now hold his self plodded off to the nearest gents toilets and all of us were thankful that the constant groaning had now ceased. After quickly booking one of the rooms in the hotel which was inside the airport it self, we rushed off to catch the rest of the eight hours of sleep left. My brother who was already relieved of one problem now had another urge to spend hours in the Arcade Centre which he saw near Pizza Hut. After taking a much needed nap for seven hours we all took a soothing hot shower and got all of our hand luggage ready. ...read more.


When our bellies filled up and stuck out like balloons they cried "STOP" and we were satisfied. Within the next ten minutes we had gone upstairs to our room and packed the hand luggage and put on some light clothing as we knew it would be unbearably hot in India. After giving the room key back to the receptionists at the central desk we headed off to the terminal. My mind wondered off - daydreaming about the next adventure we were about to encounter at the next stage of our trip. Images came into my mind, when we were back home, about my dad telling me about India and the torturing heat that awaited us. After ten minutes or so, the long awaited announcement sounded our ears telling passengers of the Air India flight to make our way to the terminal gates. The long ten hours had given us a chance to rest and gave us a taste of the zest and excitement of Dubai. No doubt I was looking foreword to coming back to Dubai after four weeks and indulging myself in the excitement of exploring all of Dubai. ?? ?? ?? ?? Gurnam Singh Virdi - 1 - ...read more.
