laurenepbath Something that I'm getting used to... Cloudless skies and the sun in a giant red ball! Today is my birthday and I get to spend it in Dubai with amazing people, it makes up for the fact I can't be with my family and partner. We're also hitting Ski Dubai which I've been looking forward to above everything! I want to ski in the desert! Have a fantastic day wherever you are in the world!! @MyDubai #MyDubai 3h

laurenepbath We spent most of today in the "old" Dubai, well as old as such a new city can get. Even at such an early hour there were people up and about, including 25 Aussie instagrammers! @MyDubai #MyDubai 13h

laurenepbath Today we visited the Sheik Mohammed bin Rashid centre for cultural understanding and afterwards explored the "old Dubai". Wow! My eyes are well and truly open, don't believe everything you read in the media. The culture here is rich and beautiful. @MyDubai #MyDubai 17h

laurenepbath We had a really nice easy start to our Dubai trip today with a tour of our hotel, the Madinet Jumeirah, and a visit to the Dubai Mall and Aquarium. Our focus this week is to showcase all that Dubai has to offer from the decadence to the unrivaled activities to the real Dubai as seen by locals. Please ask me any questions as the Middle East is completely new to me and I'll be spending as much time as I can replying and checking my comments. @MyDubai #MyDubai 2d
  •   raif_t @laurenepbath If you have time during this ME trip, then I suggest you visit the neighbouring country "Oman". It has different landscape if you like nature, you can see mountains, valleys, beach and desert etc. For touring you can check www.omanworldtourism.com OWT. 20h
  •   laurenepbath @raif_t thanks for the tip! This trip is all about Dubai and who knows about Oman down the track. :) 17h
  •   laurenepbath @peetaplanet hey guys! Thanks a lot for the offer! I was offered a spot for that but it was a conflict of interest for this trip!! Ahhhh. Tips are always appreciated :) 17h
  •   laurenepbath @sarvapriyaprasad Atlantis, yes!! I think we're going! 17h
  •   laurenepbath @abyaaser5 I'll try to get to as many of these as I can! 17h

laurenepbath After a busy few days finalizing arrangements I am finally back on Instagram and in DUBAI for the biggest instameet ever! 25 Australian grammers are taking over the city with an amazing week of photography planned. The Middle East was never even on my top bucket list and I am truly converted already. This place is just beautiful and unique and fabulous! @MyDubai #MyDubai 2d

laurenepbath My friends over at @SouthernGreatBarrierReef have asked me to remind everybody that IT'S TURTLE SEASON! At the moment all the eggs are being laid to become adorable adorable baby turtles early next year. If you haven't experienced this amazing event you definitely should! This was taken at Mon Repos early this year, close to Bundaberg. #SouthernGreatBarrierReef 5d

laurenepbath Aww, last Sydney shot and I'm not back for ages! (Or am I?) Taken from the Novotel Darling Harbour when I was so full I could hardly walk. Lol. @novoteldarlingharbour #novoteldarlingharbour 1w

laurenepbath My second-to last photo from my amazing night at the Novotel Darling Harbour. I literally only took about 20 photos and spent the rest of the time eating! lol. This was the Ginger Ninja Cocktail which made me giggle cause I'm a ginger. (Red head) @novoteldarlingharbour #novoteldarlingharbour 1w

laurenepbath Another one from the Novotel Darling Harbour, this time from the rooftop. We were all shooting the Harbour when I realized that @garry_norris had disappeared. Turns out he was photographing this epic sunset on the other side. I snapped a telephoto lens on just in time to capture this. @novoteldarlingharbour #novoteldarlingharbour 1w

laurenepbath I wanted to take the opportunity today to finally share some shots from my amazing night at the Novotel Darling Harbour last week. This was a job that I did for a special client and it involved cocktails with this hottie Matt, sharing a meal with amazing friends including Aussie actress @georgieparker , my besties @garry_norris and @jewelszee , the fantabulous @markclinton and the talented @shirty_i_am AND sunset on the roof of the hotel. I love my job! @novoteldarlingharbour #novoteldarlingharbour 1w

laurenepbath Good morning Instagram, I have an idea! For the next hour I am going to answer every single question that you guys ask me - how I travel the world, how I get paid, about being a pro Instagrammer, my gear, my settings, my favorite place ... You ask, I answer. I can't do this all day so I'll give you an hour from now. Go! 1w

laurenepbath One more from Gold Coast Indigenous group Jellurgal, I am so fascinated by traditional dance! I hope you’ve liked seeing some home town shots for a change. @visitgoldcoast #visitgoldcoast 1w

laurenepbath My last Gold Coast koala photo, until next month probably. Haha. It’s so nice to be planning these Photo Meets and spending the time at home every month. Don’t forget to register for the next one if you haven’t already, we have a new guest instagrammer coming all the way from Canada! Link in my profile! @visitgoldcoast#visitgoldcoast 1w

laurenepbath Another shot from the Natural Bridge in Springbrook. There isn’t a lot of water there at the moment but the place still looks gorgeous! If anyone here is on Twitter and wants to learn more about my work I'll be live tweeting in one hour on #askthetravelexperts @visitgoldcoast #visitgoldcoast 1w

laurenepbath So yeah, this happened! I have to say that I am now more than convinced that Koala’s are the cutest animal in the entire world! @visitgoldcoast #visitgoldcoast 1w

laurenepbath Snapper rocks looking pretty in pink. If you look closely you can even spot some Instagrammers, gathered together for our November Gold Coast Photo Meet. @visitgoldcoast #visitgoldcoast 1w

laurenepbath Omg, omg, omg! This is possibly the most adorable koala I have ever seen in all my life! As part of my week on the Gold Coast I got to go to Dreamworld and basically have fun on the rides. Giant Drop, Tower of Terror and the new Buzz Saw, I conquered them all and still found time to make photos! @visitgoldcoast #visitgoldcoast 1w

laurenepbath Sunrise! As usual when I rocked up to the Gold Coast Photo Meet to shoot sunrise I was too busy talking to people to focus on what I was doing. So this is all I have to show for my 3:15 AM wake up call! That’s right, 3:15! Loving summer, not! Lol. @visitgoldcoast #visitgoldcoast 1w
