We’re super excited for tomorrow, we’re heading to Dubai for the weekend! It has been about a month and a half since our last vacation, so we are eager for our upcoming trip. There is a group of 8 of us going this weekend for the annual Dubai 7s Rugby Tournament. I don’t know the slightest thing about rugby, and to be honest with you, I probably won’t watch much of it this weekend either. Instead, we’re going for the party!
The game of rugby is huge all over the world (except North America). This is one of the largest annual sporting events on this side of the world. The international teams from 20 different countries will be represented in the 2-day tournament, being cheered on by thousands of people from all over the world. The games begin each day at about 9am, with a new match starting about every 20 minutes until 9pm. Apparently a lot of people prefer 7s rugby over the traditional sport, because it is faster paced, more scoring, and the matches are much shorter. The best part of the tournament begins when the matches are over . . . . apparently there is an outdoor concert at the conclusion featuring live bands and more partying! I read online that there is 7 different beer gardens 🙂 We’ve been in Kuwait for about 3 months now, and my liver is about dried up since there is no booze here. I’m going to try my best to rehydrate Mr. Liver this weekend with as much beer as possible to jump start him again!
We rented an apartment through airbnb.com in the Dubai Marina area again. We stayed in the same area during our visit in October and totally loved the accessibility to everything. Dubai is an awesome city, with great public transportation, and so many cool things to do and see. We’ll be sure to take a bunch of pictures and share experiences from Dubai on here next week. Cheers!
