Jumeirah Beach Residence (JBR)

Based on the recommendation from Emaddin we planned to go and visit the JBR after getting back from the Dubai Mall And Burj Khalifa. 

The JBR is a very popular place for expatriates to live and socialise. It’s one of the cool places in Dubai to visit apparently so we got a taxi and went down to see what it was like. 

The photo above is what we were greeted with when we arrived at the JBR. It was a really cool place with plenty of cool shops, cafes and restaurants. Just over the road there was the Ritz-Carlton hotel which I can only imagine was 5 star.

The photo above was in the entrance to a really nice steak and grill restaurant. Clearly I’m not allowed in. 

After walking around for a while and getting loads of cool photos we decided to stop for a coffee in Starbucks of all places.

Now for those of you who know me at work you’ll know over the years I’ve had a variety of nicknames. But it also seems that Craig is not a widely used name in America. So over time I’ve had a ton of names… Graig, Greg, Carl, Chris oh and Kev. I thought Dubai would be different… but it just wasn’t. FML
