Let the summer begin!
Long gone are the summers in Dubai when the city was yawning with emptiness and the couch and DVD box set combos were the weekend staples. In a reverse, yet totally understandable logic, summer used to be time to put on weight, not lose it to ﬁt into a bikini. Times are a-changing, and we admit we actually love the summer here. Firstly, you never get out of the heat for long enough to escape it. Secondly, it actually doesn’t feel any different from sweating in 35° and sweating in 45°. Thirdly, schools close in June, roads clear out and the busy business city takes a notch or two down from its manic pace and lets you breathe a little behind your desk. Now, it’s time to ﬁnish those long-delayed projects, get creative and tweak the workﬂow here and there.Sports have not gone to hibernation either. Push your timings a bit into the late after-noon or earlier in the mornings and the beach jogging, workouts, yoga and even open water swimming is very enjoyable at these times. Kite Surfers Beach and other sand patches in the region are getting makeovers, and we are very excited to see what they are going to look like when ﬁnished towards September. Parks and suburban green ar-eas are swamped with residents on the move. Or turn your body clock nocturnal to get the best out of the last of spring — head to the desert for a midnight soiree with friends and light food, stargazing and good company.Last but not least, I personally will be making a few “extended weekend getaways” over the summer months to the coast of Oman. Hot weather, always windy and perfect waves to conquer on my board.
