Vacation Abroad!

I have been on VACATION!

That is such an odd word, as I have not been on vacation in a few years. I have traveled on the company's dime, but that don't count!

I have been in the UAE. And I am posting from there... and here are a few of my favorite pictures.

My favorite tourist spot so far: The Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi!

The Mosque was beautiful. And the history of it was amazing.

My favorite buildings were in Abu Dhabi.

They looked like something out of the Jetsons.

My favorite building so far: The Burj Khalifa in Dubai.

That is the tallest building in the world. It was nice to see it (and hard to take a picture of since it was so tall). It costs 500 dirhams (approximately $125) to go to the top. We will have breakfast on Christmas there. A tad bit cheaper than going all the way to the top. (The restaurant is 3/4ths of the way to the top).

I have been having a great time so far and I have a gazillion pictures. I hope to post some this week, so stay tuned!

    Merry Christmas my friend! Enjoy your time with your sister!

  2. yay! I'm so glad you are having a great time and I'm loving the pictures.

  3. Do you really have to pay to go to the top of the Burj Khalifa? $125.00? When I was young, me and my mom went to the top of the Worlds Trade Center when it was there and I think it was free. I was small so I really don't know if it cost anything.

  4. Yay! I was hoping we got a quick glimpse while you were away. Can't wait to here your stories.

  5. Awesome. I look forward to reading your stories about the trip and seeing pics.

  6. That are beautiful pictures, I know you are having a good time. Happy New Year!!!
