Tilal Liwa Hotel + Camel riding


      Soooo... Carrying on with our 2 week vacation schedule, we have arrived to Liwa Desert!

We really wanted to show Nina & Ismael how things look like once you leave the glitzy skyscraper area of Abu Dhabi and that could only mean one thing: ROAD-TRIP!!!

     Originally we intended to go further away, to Oman, but due to Visa issues (Oman is another country, you know), we had to keep things more local. Not that 'local' means any less beautiful/exciting/adventurous...

     After doing a little internet browsing, our destination of choice was  Tilal Liwa Hotel, which we highly recommend to anyone looking for a little R&R, peace and quiet, the place is a true gem!

 signs along the way... it?
 in the desert

 the hotel's reception area
 little bit of heaven
 hungry much? :D

 then there is this...dipping into that pool might as well be the only reason to go there!
swimming...with an interesting background  :D
 there are quite a few entertainment opportunities, like dune bashing...

 ...camel riding... WHOA!? Ismael went first and proved to be a real champ :)

 Nina was just a liiittle bit terrified...just a little!

 ...then she 'sailed' peacefully into the sunset
 THAT sunset, in case you were wondering...
 she almost got used to it by the end
 then it was time for the real experts to show how it's done
 Wheeeeeeee...into the sunset again
 Yup, you can bet I was instagraming it...
...seeee?  :D
 ...and there goes hubby, to close the whole deal...

 Finally, time to chillax... Oh wait, a quad bike?!

 FINALLY, time to relax...
 well, don't relax too much...
Strawberry Margaritas will always be my favorite way to end a day! (or night)
