Hi lovelies,

I am now blogging from Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, and the city of luxury and tradition.

Yesterday evening we went with Air Berlin from Duesseldorf to Abu Dhabi. Together with Isabelle, a girlfriend of mine, and Hannah and Sabrina, two of my lovely followers, we were able to go on this trip due to a LTUR giveaway. Really a great thing!

We are staying in the Royal Rose Hotel Abu Dhabi. The hotel is very pompous. Everything full of gold and deco ๐Ÿ˜€ Normally not really my thing but it kinda fits to Abu Dhabi… ha ha.

When we arrived we first had an amazing breakfast. The food here in the hotel is truly awesome! A huge selection of fresh fruit, pancakes, muesli etc. ๐Ÿ™‚

Unfortunately today is a holiday here in Abu Dhabi. Hence, the beautiful mosque was closed. That was really unfortunate. However, we will have a look at it tomorrow ๐Ÿ™‚

We had lunch in the hotel as well. The selection there was just as amazing as the breakfast selection!

The highlight of today was a really cool desert safari. I’ve always wanted to do something like that and we didn’t get dissappointed.

We started with a desert ride in jeeps through the dunes. The girls screamed a bit because it was sometimes quite steep ๐Ÿ˜€

For sunset we drove to a desert camp where we also had a delicious dinner. It was truly magical watching the sunset in the desert ๐Ÿ™‚

A big highlight for me was trying out sand boarding for the first time. Being a snowboarder that was tons of fun!

Because so many of you asked: you can find my sweater and shorts here ๐Ÿ™‚

Overall we had a beautiful first day here in Abu Dhabi. Now I’m falling really exhausting in my huge bed. And I’m super excited for tomorrow ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a wonderful weekend!
