Fi-nal-ly, the best week of the whole year is here! A whole week with this view on the other side of the window. After travelling 24 hours from Belgium to Las Vegas, Nevada over a little pit-stop in Atlanta we arrived at the city that never sleeps!
As all the travelling demands a lot of energy we decided to recover a bit at the pool the next day and that’s pretty much what we did. Heated water, much sun, a good beat on the background and some cocktails, to be honest, I had worse days in my life.
Sun is out, shopping is on!
Of course some sneaker hunting had to be done! Having my eyes on some Off-White Nikes which I want, more on that later this week – I promise!
And of course this is what Las Vegas is all about for me, the Sema Show! The best, the biggest, the sickest carshow in the world! 10th year for me being here and I know why! With the E30 freshly bought, it’s time to get my head filled with ideas again. Beside that, this is the place to be to catch some beautiful photographs of the most amazing project cars in the world!
And beside amazing projects, you’ll see a lot of cool stuff like this burned down Mercedes with some fancy wheels on for showcase – marketing done right!
Stay tuned for more stories from Sin City folks! And for those car people, go check out part 1 on the Sema Show at AutomotiveTuner.com
I always was fascinated by Dubai and the United Arabic Emirates for many years now, probably by seeing all the amazing photos and travelstories from friends and Youtubers on the world wide web. Always wanted to go there and as my business shedule was pretty hectic over the past few years it wasn’t always possible until a 2 weeks ago, Dubai trip became reality!
We flew with Emirates as they had a direct flight from Brussels airport to Dubai, it only took 6 hours and 30 minutes which is pretty ok. We’re used to be on a flight to Vegas for 16 hours so this was only a short trip! You can see the full travel vlog here in case you missed it:
This was the first sight when we enterred our hotel room balcony, the Burj Khalifa. The tallest building in the world with 828m high and 163 floors, pretty crazy! As they are buidling everywhere now in Dubai for the Expo 2020 you got be very lucky to have a sight on this building from your hotel room – Can u smell my happiness?
As you guys know, I like fast cars and Lamborghinis in particular so I decided to rent this yellow bull to drive around Dubai and just cruise around. As I hate public transportation and you can’t do Dubai in a Ford Focus rental car this was actually a pretty good idea.
We drove way too many kilometers in this car as my back really hurts from sitting in this car but it’s only once in a while you’re in Dubai and in a Lamborghini so… We went to the desert to snap some pictures and video which you could see in this vlog:
Somewhere 1h away from the Dubai City madness we found this abandonned parking… we actually got lost but it was fun to drive with just nothing around you!
The next best thing beside the Huracan was this swimming pool in our hotel. During the day it was around 36 to 42 degrees so sometimes we just needed to jump in the pool to cool down a little bit. We knew Dubai was going to be hot but I didn’t expected it to be that hot. It cooled down in the evening/night but then it was still 33 degrees and very humid. Next time when I travel to Dubai it will be in December or January for my birthday or to celebrate New Year there. Temperatures are much better then.
We had some pretty good food in Dubai, except from this hamburger from Five Guys. I heard so much about this fast food hamburger restaurant but I was very dissapointed by how greasy it was. The Strawberry Mojitos at the pool and my morning eggs with sausage were on point. I’ll sign for that again! And of course, we had sushi, everybody loves sushi, right?
I went shopping for this breakfast in the Huracan, pretty cool haha! I case you missed that vlog about it, check it out here:
And you can’t do Dubai without shopping, it has the biggest and most beautiful mall in the world! “The Dubai Mall”, just next to our hotel so we could do it by foot, only a 2 minute walk. I never ever saw so many designer stores under 1 roof. Literally 4 Louis Vitton stores, a few Gucci stores, 3 Adidas stores and all this in 1 shopping mall – Only in Dubai!
Suprised to see Off-White clothing and shoes here and that much!
And it’s not very comon you can see that amount of new Yeezys on the shelve where you can just take them and buy them. Unfortunately the retail prices where way too high. 2 to 3 times the normal re-selling price.
Otherwise I would have copped these Off-white Nikes. They went for €1200 while you can catch them for €550 on the web.
Another thing that I was suprised with in Dubai is their etiquette and motivation. From taxi drivers to hotel staff to even this grocery store. People in Dubai do their ultimate best in like everything. From stacking fruit to make sure you have the best time when you are in their country.
This view was just a typical sight at the valet parking at the Dubai Mall, Dubai things…
A little city overview from the other side of our hotel balcony, absolutely amazing! I could watch this for hours!
On the last day we went for a little boat trip with this little yacht. It went all from downtown Marina port to the Atlantis hotel at the Palm. It was so hot on the boat that I want to jump in the water but they told me it was a bad idea so I stayed on. We had breakfast and a good time on it, check it out in the vlog:
I have seen some ports in my life but this one here is on the top of the list by far. This weather and buildings are just amazing! They can top off the Monaco port for sure!
Here I was just enjoying the view and thinking of a business opportunity so I can buy a boat and sail it myself here! Haha – just kidding!
Dubai, you were amazing! Peace out and see you next time!
The annual Worthersee trip to Austria, together with the Las Vegas Sema Show week, one of the best weeks of the year when it comes to car and fun related things. We always leave for Worthersee by night, that means no traffic and just cruising! See this vlog from the drive to Austria!
Beautiful cars, much scenery, good food and more cars. That’s basicly Worthersee in a nutshell!
Here’s day 2 in a vlog:
Admit, it doesn’t get any better than this, right?
Day 3 in Worthersee:
And when it rains in Worthersee, it pours!
Time to hit home and do the 1200km trip to Belgium! Absolute fun, much laughs, much Red Bulls and already looking forward to next year!
