All her worries melted when she touched down in Dubai in 2005."It was an adult Disneyland, where Sheikh Mohammed is the mouse," she says. You had these amazing big apartments, you had a whole army of your own staff, you pay no taxes at all. We were partying the whole time." Her husband, Daniel, bought two properties. But for the first time in his life, he was beginning to mismanage their finances.But once he was off the clock, he'd want to do something extra-special with his boo — like have a super-fancy date night out — or as Bündchen showed us on her Instagram, go for a romantic-ish camel ride together.Brady and Bündchen are no strangers to upscale date nights, either.
