Lots can be said about Abu Dhabi! It is the capital city of the UAE and a city that most people don't really know about. When you ask people or tell people you work in the UAE they all respond:
"Wow that's awesome, it must be so cool living in Dubai?" - well the short answer to that has always been "Yes it is!" the truth of the matter is this: Duabi is great, in fact its awesome. I like it best because I visit and when I've had enough I go home!
Thanks to the crazy storm we had here this week (Desert Storms) we were given Wednesday and Thursday off so as ADEC staff we had an awesome long weekend (unexpected - which made it AMAZING) I decided to check my Entertainer App (2 for 1 deals) and see which hotel in the capital had deals on offer. I found one and booked. As I type this I'm sitting in the 4-star Marriott Courtyard Hotel at the World Trade Centre Mall loving life.
So the Entertainer works like this for those deal 'virgins' out there: You pay for one and get the second free. It's as easy as THAT. Just logon and see what available and pay. So I paid for the first night and stay the second night FREE - Who wouldn't want that type of bargain! You would be stupid not too? (I think!)
So it was off to the capital for me! Loving life. So coming to th city is always great - even if only to get out of our small little desert town! I did;t have any specific plans for things to do, in fact I had none. I was just simply going to relax and watch TV with some room service. After checking in I decided to take a drive to a really upmarket hotel in the city where my folks and I will be staying while they are here (13 days from today - I can't wait) WOW, can't wait to stay there it is exquisite. While being shown around by the staff they handed me a magazine which I flipped through and saw 3 things that caught my eye!
So an all together great day out today with my trusty camera at my side! So glad that I have brought it out again. First times really since I have been here.
