      After arriving, I was greeted with a check-in process lasting a conservative estimate of 35 minutes (I was then required to surrender my passport for a number of hours). This was of course, my fault for not remembering the booking site I used, many months ago. Not the hotels fault for lack of organisation.

      The unstylish, semi-lockable room contains a bathroom that is probably cleaned once per olympiad (at best estimate). The foul stains on the lavatory seat, basin, floor and shower appear to have aged nicely with time. Perhaps this is because there is no water pressure (or hot water) to speak of. Ditto for the kitchenware.

      The satellite tv as advertised, is actually 18 channels. 8 of which, there are no signal, a further 5 a poor signal, resulting in black and white with distortion.

      Then it was time for bed, where else would you put the light switch you ask. Right behind the refridgerator is the answer. The loud generator that runs outside of the building certainly doesn't help napping. The one pillow given is best described as a pillow full of desert rocks. And the view of of the filthy window, is best described as concrete.

      The staff are rude, foul beasts of characters that spew vile from their sewer's on a regular basis. Complaints seem to be met with the infamous, "shrug of the shoulders" response. Whilst not useful in resolution, it appears part of the staff training procedure.

      One example being, I was in the lobby using my wifi pass I had purchased (note they come in 15 minute, 1 hour and 7 day increments) as the advertised 'high speed internet' in the rooms is non-existent, when a lady with her young children could not get into her room as the card did not work. The staff member proceeded to argue quite aggressively, at this poor woman. Three days in a row she had this problem. I demanded they give her and her young family a new room and I (not the staff) helped move her belongings.

      I did have the misfortune of staying 3 evenings here and to be fair, most times I went past reception there was a person with a valid complaint. Met with the said shrug of the shoulders or the infuriating, 'not my problem' or 'it worked yesterday'. Useless, utterly useless.

      One can only wonder how many people's hard earned vacation has been ruined by Jormand staff.

      I did manage to negotiate these issues and successfully book a day trip. The day prior to this said trip, 2.30pm I was told to be downstairs and ready. Upon 2.30pm on the said day, the staff enquired why I was so early as 4pm was the pick up time. Not only was 90 minutes of my time wasted, but I could have made more use of the rest of the day.

      The location. Tastefully located in the middle of nowhere, a good 25 minute walk in Arabian heat from the metro station. Don't try and use a cab, as no one knows of the place to get you back. One alternative is, you could get the staff member to drive you around at viciously inflated prices (whom seems to have issues with "rich tourists"). You can just make out the impressive Dubai skyline.

      Before I forget, I must mention that my delicious (if more than just a little pricey) Parisian chocolates seemed to vanish from the fridge. You bet they were good. Ditto for my samples of Parisian aftershaves.

      Now, no criticism is fair without suggestion for improvement. My suggestion for improvement being, a scud missile right through the front door. Then start from the beginning.

      I have given Jormand a one star rating, as I am unable to select zero stars.

      You have been warned.

      Average place to put your head down

      I was checked in very quickly and seen to my room. It certainly was not as clean as it looked in the pictures and probably was not worth the money I paid but it was a good little place to just put my head down. Paying quite a bit extra to use WIFI was annoying. Overall, average stay on a budget if you stay away from WIFI.

      I decided to take a 3 day layover in Jumeirah, Dubai. This gave me a good amount of time to get used to my own company and get ready for the adventure ahead of me. After getting settled in my room, I decided to whip out my map and go exploring. It was unbelievably hot, especially in what I was wearing. In respect of the culture, I was covered …

      ... the Emirates Mall, seeing the Emirates towers, dinner and a late night walk and coffee. We woke up early Thursday to fit more into the day, starting with Dubai Marina Mall and the Bay, where I was hoping to see the fountain show but it wasn't starting until 6pm. I then wanted to go to the observation deck on the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa, however that was sold out! I was gutted but instead I decided to go to ...

      We had an early night as we had to be up at 4.0 in the morning to catch our flight back to London.
      Bleary eyed we stumbled into the taxi, half asleep, and we were on our way home. I couldn’t believe our adventure was nearly over. However we had another drama on the plane. After eating her gluten free meal Chrissie was violently sick for hours and she went into ...

      After a quick look around and lunch I headed back to my hotel to prepare for my tour. I was embarking on the Sundowner tour, a 6 hour event which takes you an hour out of the city for 4WDing in the desert, pictures in the sand, a perfect spot to watch the sun set, and then off ...

      Feeling very proud of ourselves, we managed to find our way to the airport on time, even managing to fit in some goss from Justin and Sian on the antics of the night before we left! With the house locked up, and instructions for family and friends left out, we jumped into a cab and left the world behind us for 6 weeks! This was a brutal 11 hour flight which we were not looking forward to, however there were some ...
