Thanks to everyone for all the help and advice you have given us. It really is invauable to have an insiders view.
We leave tomorrow and arrive in Dubai Wednesday morning to say we are excited would be an understatement bit stressed with all the packing for a family of 5 especially when hubby decided he needed clothes a couple of hours ago so we had to dash out to the shops! Then we found that some of our middle child's shorts were smaller than they said on the hanger! But all is well now just have to pack the new things and weight the cases. Hoping to sit down with a wine tonight to start the holiday off!
Thanks again everyone will try and get to a computer and post a live report. Decided we have enough to carry so not taking the laptop.
Will do a review when we get back.
