Leo ilikua ni siku yetu ya mwisho hapa Cook Islands. Tuliondoka usiku na Air New Zealand to Auckland then another flight to Sydney, Australia.Muda wa asubuhi tuvisit local market ambapo tulipata nafasi ya kufanya shopping kidogo pia kupata local lunch. Kitu kilichonifurahisha zaidi ni kupata nafasi ya kuona local musician wakiimba na kucheza, lovely :)
Monday, Nov 11th. Leo ni siku yetu ya tatu tukiwa majini ambapo tunaendelea kukatiza Atlantic Ocean.

This was my last night in Dar es Salaam and since the next day was my birthday, what a treat it was to wake up in a lovely hotel like this. Too bad I checked in late though after spending almost 6 hours at the hair salon. I couldn’t leave the salon any earlier though because it was my last day and I needed my hair to be done. After the salon I rushed to get to the hotel, and guess what? Somehow I forgot my purse at the salon! Yikes! So after checking in I had to rush all the way back to Mwenge to pick it up. By the time I got back to the hotel it was quite late, so I just took a few photos around the hotel before heading off to bed. It was so relaxing. I fell asleep dreaming of seeing my wonderful husband soon :))
This weekend we decided to take my little sister Tina to see Wadi Dayqah Dam and to have a chance to see a little bit of Oman country side. Even though was too sunny but we had an amazing time, the place is beautiful.
Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa, Shangri-La hotels Oman is the best. I love the combination of three hotels in one place Al Husn, Al Bandar, Al Waha and each one with it’s own character……just amazing. It’s a place for everyone…..for sure you will like it and have fun, like we did :))))
What can I say… I just loved everything about Al Husn hotel. And to be honest, when we will next find a baby sitter to leave kids with, we will definitely come back. It’s such a romantic place and very elegant. It’s money well spent! :))))
It’s a good feeling sometimes when you felt like a kid again, that’s what we felt when we were cruising around lazy river then splushing the water at the pool. The kids were so happy and they had a great time, smilling all the way. That’s what we call fun:))))
