If you're keeping up with our future travel plans, you know that we're planning a fabulous cruise to the Arabian Gulf in February. We're departing from Dubai, but we'll also be visiting Abu Dhabi, which has us really excited. A friend who traveled there frequently for work has raved about Abu Dhabi, and we can't wait to experience it for ourselves!
That's why we were really excited to learn of this new video series that features inspiring experiences and “extraordinary stories” showcasing real people living in the emirate who, through their own lifestyle, embody its authentic personality and character. The people in the series are intended to reflect faithfully on Abu Dhabi and to represent surprising but fascinating aspects of the destination.
To make the point on variety of experience and underline a sense of “real world,” the first two of these films will feature Fatima Al Hameli, a self-styled “camel whisperer” and the first Emirati female to enter her animals into the country’s camel auctions and beauty pageants; and Theo Kekati, a cart-racing teenage “Rocket Boy” well versed in the destination.
Abu Dhabi is already a world-class destination, and this video series is only going to help people understand the breadth and depth of its culture. Two more videos will be out later this year.
We're more excited than ever about our upcoming trip. And, if you're thinking that you might want to join us, just send us a note, and we'll give you all the info!
