SSlightly embarrassing but true fun fact: I can’t swim. It’s a source of constant amusement for my friends, while others look at me as if I was some sort of abandoned child when they find out. A grown man that can’t swim? Silly, I know, but it something I just never really got round to, and I can do other things. I CAN DO OTHER THINGS! Like what? Erm… Oh. I can DJ? Sure, it won’t help if I fall into a large expanse of water, but I do look better in headphones than Speedos.
So, that said, I have to be honest and say that I’m probably not the man to ask about this month’s What’s
On cover feature – ‘the UAE’s best water parks’. I have been reliably informed, however, that, as far as water parks go, there are few if any better than the ones we have right here in the Emirates, and that doesn’t surprise me one bit, because that’s how we roll (paddle?) here, right?
Thankfully, Team What’s On is better placed when it comes to messing with waves, and they’ve splashed their way through the very best to bring you all you need to know about the emirates’ best water parks. And it does look like a lot of fun. Maybe it’s time for me to dip my toe in, both metaphorically and literally? Swimming lessons are on the horizon (thanks to the insistence of my wife), so hopefully I’ll see you there soon. I’ll be the one with the life vest. Enjoy the issue.
