10 days

Posted By on May 4, 2011 | 8 comments

In ten days time I will be leaving on my Abu Dhabi Adventure. And as I’ve said a few times over the past week, it will be a bitter sweet trip. But on the brightside I will be spending time with my mom…

Now I know that Abu Dhabi is not just about the desert. There are amazing skyscrapers to behold. There are great beaches to experience. There are many shops to visit. There are desert experiences to enjoy. There are a myriad of things to do. And I know that my mom has one or two sneaky plans up her sleeve!

She unfortunately fell at work yesterday and is under strict instructions to remain at home for the next 10 days. So this means that she will have to work a few days while I am visiting with her. But this also means that I will tag along with her on one of the days so that I can see how the schooling system works and what she actually does there. It will be quite an experience and something I’m looking forward to sharing with her.

I will be jetting off on Saturday 14 May at 13h30 and arriving in Abu Dhabi close to midnight. I know I am going to be a bit of a zombie because I don’t sleep well on planes. But zombieness can be rectified with a huge cuppa tea and a quick nap! I then leave on Saturday 21 May and arrive back in Johannesburg on Sunday 22 May at half-past-sparrow-fart. So Sunday will probably be spent lazing around and napping when I feel like it!

I promise to take lots of pictures! And I promise to blog about everything when I’m back so you can feel like you were there…

Have you got anything exciting planned?

  2. Hey Chicka!

    If you make it as far as Dubai, go have yourself a bottomless tomato & mozzarella soup at More Cafe in Garhoud! Also, please stop by a Za’atar w Zeit and indulge in a Chicken & Cheese Wrap, washed down with a Mountain Dew? Those are two of the things I miss most about the UAE…

    Hope you have an awesome trip!
