Our Stay at the Aloft Abu Dhabi

I realized, now that I’m not a broke college student anymore, that it’s hard to settle for a less than decent accommodation when traveling. Although I’m still not the type to splurge on hotels, I do value comfort and cleanliness much, much more now. Now that I’m also traveling more, it’s nice to come back to a quality hotel and not have to worry about a thang!

When searching for hotels, I’m still usually the budget friendly one, and N prefers to pay a small premium to have peace of mind that nothing weird pops up when we arrive at the hotel. With that said, we usually meet somewhere in the middle.

My Next Destination…

Destination: Dubai and Abu Dhabi, UAE!

Pretty excited for this one. We’ll be spending five days there, and we take off next week!

I would say this trip was somewhat a spur of the moment. In the hustle and bustle of my last few weeks of work, I thought, why not plan a trip to celebrate my big decision to take a hiatus from work and to celebrate my upcoming birthday…

After brainstorming for chilling out destinations, affordability of flights (points-wise), and degree of interest, the optimal destination turned out to be the UAE. 🙂

There will be camel riding, skyscraper gazing, and pool lounging involved.
