Vacation! Well, made it to Winter Break! Hooray! The last few days we headed to the Western Region of Abu Dhabi, the Empty Quarter and checked in to a beautiful hotel called The Qasr Al Sarab. It was so beautiful in fact that it deserves its own post.
Upon entrance we were given some kind of yogurt drink and dates and stayed seated while everyone came to us with the paperwork and room logistics.
We were then driven to our villa by golf cart. We got a one bedroom villa with a private pool.
After a quick look at our place we decided to do what you do when you have a private pool. We went swimming. 🙂 And since the room was so great we decided to stay in for the night, order room service and enjoy the sunset from our fabulous deck.
The next day we headed off to breakfast and then did some exploring of the hotel. I was in love with the architecture and took a ton of pictures.
Throughout the day we explored the hotel, had a light lunch at the hotel pool, Ash spent some time in Kids Club, and lots of relaxing time in our room.
Then we decided to climb a gigantic sand dune. Now, I have not exercised in a very long time (mainly due to my injuries over the last year) and when I say gigantic, well it was really big, let’s just leave it at that. But we made it most of the way and got some really great pictures of the sunset.
All I can think right now is how grateful I am to be able to have these experiences. The last year and a half I have gotten to do so many things that I never thought I would ever, in a lifetime, be able to do. Blessed for sure. I hope you all have a wonderful winter season. And if you celebrate, Merry Christmas.
(Now apparently wordpress tells me I am out of space and have to purchase more and as I just found out if you delete pictures in the library it deletes them from the posts that I have used them for. So I am now looking for a new home so I can continue, thanks for reading and talk to you soon).
