Bye Bye Abu Dhabi!

All our bags are packed, we're ready to go..

semi-overcast 24 °C

So today is our very last day in Abu Dhabi- since we started this planning this wee adventure, it's actually come in pretty fast!

One of the last things we've done in Abu Dhabi is see the infamous 11million dollar Christmas tree in Emirates Palace- this is absolutely crazy! It's 13m tall, and is the most expensively decorated tree (even in the Guinness Book of Records- oooh), it is actually decorated with actual jewellery- lots of necklaces and earrings worth a million dollars- not too shabby!


I think we're finally ready to get going:

  • Rucksacks packed? 15kgs each for 3 months.. that's not nearly enough shoes!
  • All other worldly possessions on their way back to Scotland? ? Yup- in 125 cartons to be exact!
  • Cats at mums? Yes, after having to take it slow travelling thoughsome extreme conditions!
  • Passports/ tickets/ visas? Yes.. I think so..
  • Farewells said in Abu Dhabi? Yes- bye bye folks!
  • Letter sent to Santa so he can deliver our pressies? Ooops.. I knew we'd forgotten something..

Right, seems we're ready to get going, first stop: Maldives!
