At the end of December and all of a sudden, I received an invitation to visit Abu Dhabi. So exciting! I’ve never been to that city before. A trip to spend a few days in a warmer destination was all I needed at that moment. Therefore, I accepted the invitation, packed my things, and a few days later, I jumped on a Lufthansa flight to Abu Dhabi via Frankfurt airport.

Third stop: Wahat Al Karama
Fourth Stop: Ferrari World (No photos from this visit)
Fifth stop: Louvre Abu Dhabi and Kayaking at Louvre
Where to eat:
I loved Aptitude, which is located next to Louvre museum.
I can also highly recommend Antonia Restaurant, if you have cravings for genuine pasta, a piece of delicious pizza and Aperol Spritz.
For Mediterranean seafood lovers, I can recommend Flooka. Unfortunately I discovered this restaurant a few hours before my departure, so I didn’t have the chance to have a meal there. But I would love to, because the food smelled so good. I keep it in my mind for the next time I visit Abu Dhabi.
Sixth Stop: Visit The Souk Al Qaryat Al Beri (No photos from this visit)
Ninth and last stop in our itinerary: Soul Beach
We stayed at Anantara Eastern Mangroves Hotel. I would recommend this hotel because of the magnificent views over the Mangrove National Park and the amazing sea food restaurant nearby, called Flooka UAE! But remember to book a room with view to the National Park, not the other way! We unfortunately had a room overlooking the parking space and the avenue. A room with views to the National Park would have been a much better experience and a nicer memory from our stay.
Seventh Stop: Founders Memorial
Eighth Stop: Desert Safari with Emirates Tours
The trip to Abu Dhabi had been amazing and achieved its own purpose! It gave me time to breathe, allowed me to rethink the future and dream big! I even wish it would last a little bit longer cause I feel there were more things to do and see.
I can highly recommend Abu Dhabi as a travel destination to anyone like me who wish to escape the cold European weather…
