What’s brought all this on, then? Why are we moaning? We’re moaning because we’ve just seen this video of people in Dubai having more fun than we thought was humanly possible. It’s called ‘Pick Your Playground’ and it features flyboarding, zip lining, boat-jumping, wakeboarding and fountains tall enough to play up front for England circa 2006.

Everything about this looks fun-fun-fun. So. Much. Fun. The weather in it is an absolute dream, the smiles are wide, and the shenanigans plentiful. If we didn’t know better, we’d think this was some cynical marketing ploy to make us want to hop on a plane and visit Dubai. Wait, hang on…
