Dream Journey winner waxes lyrical on UAE

She thought it could never happen. She dreamt of such a journey since she was a young child. One day she would be rich enough to travel like a princess and see the wonders of the world. But the dream stayed just that. She grew up, was lucky enough to do some study travel as far away as Australia, but there was nothing else on the horizon. Then, one day, she received a phone call. "You have just won a Dream Journey”, the voice on the other end of the line announced. "Oh yes,” she replied, "and are you my fairy grandfather!” "Not quite”, came the swift response, "I am calling on behalf of the United Arab Emirates Pavilion at EXPO 2010 Shanghai and you entered our online prize draw. You are a winner!” "No, not possible,” she exclaimed, "I am never lucky in these things”. "Well you have been this time….we are going to send you and a partner on a trip of a lifetime in which you will experience for yourself the real wonders of our country”.

Sunny was recipient of one of the Dream Journey holiday prizes that have been organised by the UAE Pavilion at the Shangahi Expo, which is supervised by the National Media Council. On the last day of June, Sunny visited the UAE Pavilion to offer her personal thanks to the Commissioner General of the UAE Pavilion, Salem Al Ameri, who asked her whether her dream journey had fulfilled her expectations. Sunny travelled in mid-June. "I got up early, enjoyed the outdoors until the day heated up, and then went out again in the evening. It did not stop us doing anything and we had an amazing week which I will never forget,” she told the UAE team.

Now that Sunny is back from her trip she has had time to complete her latest Blog which is enriched with information and pictures about her experience in the UAE. In her blog, Sunny writes: "The UAE is not only a modern country, but it is also keen on maintaining its traditions and heritage... It is a land of miracles."

She expressed her admiration of all destinations she visited in the UAE, referring in particular to places like the Palm Island and Khalifa Tower in Dubai and to the Emirates Palace, Saadiyat and Yas islands, Emirates Palace, the Grand Mosque and Qasar Al Sarab Desert Resort in Abu Dhabi. The Dream Journey holiday prizes have been sponsored by some of the top tourism and leisure companies in the Emirates. These include Emirates Airline, Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing in Dubai, Jumeirah, Rotana, EMAAR, Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority, Emirates Palace, Abu Dhabi's Tourism Development Investment Company, Anantara and others. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
