Flyday Friday – Dubai

The Son And Heir was always reaching out as a toddler, curious to see what the world felt like it.

And he loved his lego which he called ‘Talls’.

He’d love Legoland in Dubai Parks and Resorts then.

And you’d love Emirates’ deal for your family for €5,569 http://www.emiratesholidays.com with return flights.

Emirates Holidays has a five-night stay at the 5* Rixos The Palm Dubai where you’ll stay in a Premium room (half-board).

The holiday includes unlimited access to Dubai Parks.

Prices based on October 26. Family is 2+2.

I’ll be away on a trip with my old Scottish pal and award-winning writer Tom Sweeney http://www.tomsweeneytravels.blogspot.com on Sunday, among others.

And he’ll be extolling the virtues of Lisbon where he was last weekend.

No doubt we will both reference the Lisbon Lions, the famed Celtic team who became the first British winners of the European Cup.

I had intended to pay my pilgrimage to the Estadio Nacional stadium where they won the cup when I visited Portugal Centro a couple of years ago.

And this is that review… https://jimmurtytraveltraveltravel.com/secret-portugal/

Alas the traffic beat my pal and guide Jose Manuel Santos http://www.madomistours.pt and we (I) didn’t get to pay our homage.

I will return, particularly with Aer Lingus flights http://www.aerlingus.ie from €39.99. Obvs among a list of other great deals.

Brussels rules

The centre of Europe

Few cities have had such a bad press as Brussels – but that’s merely because of the politicians.

Belgium is one of my favourite countries and its people one of the friendliest.

Real internationalists, on account of their place at the crossroads of the continent.

And having been occupied by all the Empires, including the British who fought for their neutrality.

And took them in when they were invaded and liberated them.

Hence they’re being few countries that welcome the much-denigrated British quite like Belgium.

I’ve just dipped my toe in Brussels, staying there and visiting the Parliament and its politicians as a cub reporter.

All expense was spared and I was put up in the Red Light district.

I will be back though and will visit the Mannekin Pis and probably on the Esky.ie deal with Ryanair http://www.ryanair.com from €26 http://www.esky.ie.

Flights October 11, depart, and return October 16.

And read my poignant visit to the World War I battlefields https://jimmurtytraveltraveltravel.com/firstworldwar-in-flanders-fields/.
