Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Abu Dhabi

We recently went to the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates). I can say a lot of things about it but one word comes to mind. Impressive.

Oman Trip

During August the wife and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary. We decided not to give any gifts, but to rather use the money to go for a short holiday to Oman.

We stayed at the Shangri-La Hotel in Muscat. It is a 5 star beach resort and it was worth every penny. We basically looked like a lot British tourists that never see the sun and parked ourselves in the swimming pool the whole time. I complain a lot about how hot it is during summer in the Middle East but the upside to this is that you are always guaranteed good weather in summer. I’ve heard of many people booking a holiday on some tropical island and then it rains the whole time. Well, you don’t have that here. It is hot, every day. Guaranteed. The downside is that we burned ourselves really bad. I couldn’t sleep for about 2 nights due to the pain, but hey, it was worth it.

Here is what the place look like.
