Q is for...Quite An Experience

 Thursday, April 19, 2012

Despite the challenges I've faced while here in Abu Dhabi, I must admit: I'm totally enjoying myself. I've been doing things I haven't been able to do back home. I'm living out of my comfort zone and I'm loving it. For me, the good outweighs the bad. I would've have never dreamed I'd be here, thousands of miles away from my family, enjoying myself, living life to the fullest.


So far I've...


  • Met some awesome people
  • Attended a Janet Jackson concert...stood right by the stage!
  • Attended a SADE concert...all who knows me know I love me some Sade
  • Gone on a desert safari
  • Ridden on a camel
  • Camped out in the desert
  • Visited Morocco, one of the top countries on my "Most Visit" list
  • Moved into a high-rise apartment
  • Stayed several 5-star hotels
  • Visited the tallest building in the world
  • Held a snake without passing out
  • Ate at restaurants located in 5 (or more) star hotels
  • Swam in the beautiful waters of the Persian Gulf 
  • Learned more about myself
  • Learned more about God
And this is all in eight months. I so can't wait to see what God's got in store for me in the next 15 months. I don't know just yet if I'm going to renew my contract after my two years is over July 2013. Whether I do or not, when I go back home to the States, I'd be able to honestly say I've had quite an experience in Abu Dhabi!


And now for some Arabic vocabulary...


Qur'an - religious text of Islam

Thanks! The safari was awesome. It included riding the sand dunes (felt like a roller coaster), camel rides, Arabic music, and eating a traditional dinner under the stars. The whole thing was fun.
