No Regrets?

I’m fast running out of time here in Abu Dhabi. It has got me thinking about whether I would have done anything differently. Would I have spent longer here instead of going back to the UK for the summer months? Unlikely – it’s already reaching temperatures of 40°C in April. Should we have used the UAE more as a stepping stone to the rest of the Middle East and further afield? Perhaps but we made holiday choices based on what we fancied doing at the time. Are there things we didn’t do that I still want to do? Definitely, but there are only so many weekends and holidays in a two year stint.
What have we not done that maybe we should have?

The Falcon Hospital
I’m told it’s an enjoyable and informative tour but needs booking well in advance and we never got our act together.

Ferrari World
Not really our thing.

Yas Waterworld
We’re perhaps feeling our age for this one but friends rave about it and we should probably have just tried it and blow the expense.

Al Wathba Wetland Reserve
We should definitely have gone here this winter but it didn’t really come onto our radar until too late.

THIS ECO-RESERVE IS A MUST ACTIVITY TO PLAN WITH YOUR KIDS

Christmas Carols in the Desert
Another one I really wish we’d done but the timing wasn’t right for us during our time here.

Muscat, Oman
An injury meant our trip to Muscat became a very different holiday from the one planned as we didn’t really leave the grounds of the fabulous hotel. As enjoyable as the break was, I would have liked to go back and really see the city not to mention more of the country.

Regrets? That’s much too strong a word. Our stay here has been nothing short of amazing, a time out of time really. It’s true, we will never live in this way again. So no, je ne regrette rien, of course.
