I am currently in Ajman – for those who don’t know, this is the smallest of the United Arab Emirates not far from Dubai.  I’m here to speak at a conference on Urban Planning.  Yesterday we had the fantastic opportunity to visit the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.  The Burj Khalifa is the tallest building in the World.  We zoomed up to the viewing platform on the 124th floor in less than 1 minute (ears popping along the way!)  This is apparently the highest outdoor observation platform so allowed for some fantastic night-time views.


  1. This picture is amazing. Were you out here for your birthday? Hope you had a good time. What is the picture of the green? Is it the northern lights?

    • Hey Em, yup I was out there for my birthday – certainly one I won’t forget! The trip up the Burj Khalifa was great but I want to go back up there in the day time now. That will have to wait for another trip.

      To be honest I have no idea what the green picture is!! I didn’t put it on here so thanks for letting me know – i’ll get it deleted
