Abu Dhabi for two days

In order to make the long trip from Sydney to Frankfurt a bit more endurable, we decided to break it up into two parts. We flew from Sydney to Abu Dhabi, stayed there for three nights and continued to Frankfurt afterwards.

Best decision ever! Smiley When we arrived in Abu Dhabi, we had the longer part of the trip, a 14 hours flight, behind us – and two days in the sun to get over it lay before us! Awesome Smiley mit geöffnetem Mund

As I mentioned before, we flew with Etihad and this airline offers several stopover packages, including a “first night complimentary” special for example. You can choose between a number of four and five star hotels, hotels we would never have stayed at without this offer Zwinkerndes Smiley

We went for Khalidiya Palace Rayhaan by Rotana and liked it very much.

Fun Fact: When they found out that we’re on our honeymoon, they surprised us with this cute flower decoration in our room:

Too cute, isn’t it?!

The hotel has a small, private beach…

We didn’t do much in these two days but soaking up some more sun and relaxing at the beach and the pool. We only went out once and walked around a bit.

Yep, Abu Dhabi looks like an interesting city. We have to come back on another stopover and explore it a bit more Smiley – and to meet my new friend again, of course…
