We are wishing our friends and family a Happy Canadian Thanksgiving weekend. Missing the big turkey dinners and drinks with friends as well as the beautiful colours as the leaves change. Hope you all have a great weekend! Very thankful for everything!
Abu Dhabi long weekend
We took advantage of an August long weekend and went to Abu Dhabi August 24-27. It is the capital city of the UAE (United Arab Emirates) and is often overshadowed by it's neighbour Dubai, which is an hour away.
We loved Abu Dhabi and it's people, making it one of our favourite places to visit in the Middle East. Great beaches, amazing architecture. Jeff was excited for some BBQ food at Famous Dave's BBQ and Lisa was pumped to get soup, salad, & breadsticks at the Olive Garden.
We stayed at the Sheraton on the corniche, enjoyed some pool and beach time, and took a boat ride along the corniche to see the beaches, buildings, and beautiful palaces.
The Abu Dhabi F1 race is coming up in late November with many great concerts - Calvin Harris, Mumford & Sons, and of course, Pink. Would've been a great time.
Next trip to Abu Dhabi we will visit a couple of big parks they have - Ferrari World and Yas Waterworld.
Enjoy the pics...
We are excited to visit Bahrain on October 20th for another round of Tribfest. Outdoor music festival with tribute bands and a full bar. 10AM-10PM...this signals trouble!
Upcoming vacations and 2018 plans
We have a couple of trips remaining in 2017...
October 30-November 8 - Dublin and London
We are excited to visit the pubs and attractions of these 2 cities and to see some friends we haven't seen in some time
November 23-25 - Dubai
Celebrating Lisa's 20th anniversary of her 20th birthday in Dubai with an Ed Sheeran concert. Should be fun!
As for 2018?
Then we are off to another one of our favourite party places - Miami, Florida. Love it there!
June 14-19 - Maldives
We are booked into the all-inclusive Constance Moofushi for a fun trip with beach, snorkelling, and more. Should be something amazing. Have to get to the resort on a float plane!
Here are a few random pics to close off with. Hope everyone is doing well! Will update the blog after our trip to Dublin & London.
Cheers and love...J&L
