I’m not know for doing things by halves…never have been.
So when we knew we would be flying to South Africa for a friends’ wedding, and that the flight would likely include a layover, we were already looking for ways to extend that into a mini-trip.
Between Doha and Dubai, we chose Dubai, simple because we know a lot of people who have been there before and had heard good things.
Extended our 2-hour layover to 24 hours was one of the best, most exhausting and exhilarating decision we’ve ever made. I have never felt so tired in my life.
