Snappy in the cool Dubai night
What happens when you have comfortable free accommodation and a flaky, indecisive travel partner?
You get stuck!
We have been leaving for Abu Dhabi for 4 days now. FOUR. Each morning I wake up thinking this is the day, only to be met by blank eyes, looking like we have never talked about this before,Â and sleepy heads. Dubai is nice and all, but not that nice and frankly, it is getting a bit boring.
After some discussions, somewhat serious at that, we decided to save up on the extortion that is accommodation in Abu Dhabi and just make a day trip there. Leave in the morning, walk around, see the mosque, the pen*s hotel (yes, that is what we call it), walk the corniche and get back.
That is the plan.
The road there is to the right..
…and about 2 hours straight down this way. Not far at all.
Lets see if we make it. Please keep your fingers crossed for me, because I might lose it and hurt a certain someone with the deadliest look eva! Evah!
Good luck. Looking forward to hearing all about it as we were told by a flight attended that you really don’t want or need to visit there for anymore then 24 hours… Not much to do and see. Let us know your thoughts if you ever make it. :-)
We did not make it. We are going tomorrow…again.
You know what, Geri? I miss your perceptions of the people in the last few posts. No pictures of interesting faces, no funny little anecdotes, no encounters with the culture whatsoever – and even, no word about your generous hosts OR your adorable kids…
So far, the UAE seems a slightly flat and glossy and strangely uninhabited place to me because there is no “life” as I know it from your previous posts.
What’s wrong? An evil life-sucking ghost from the shopping mall sitting in your Dubai apartement, keeping you from travelling on and freezing up your blogging skills? ;-)
Looks like Tron. Vroooooom.
These days we don’t want to move much too. May be he just needs some rest from new impressions and emotions?
