For the first time since I can remember (read: in my life), I decided that I wanted to spend my birthday away from home. Somewhere warm. With a beach near by! Said and done, in December we booked our flights and hotels for sunny Abu Dhabi. We are already at our second hotel here, as we wanted to experience different places throughout the area, but before I start with my hotel review (aka going through 1.000 pictures), here are some bits & pieces from our vacation so far. I’ll tell you more about what to do in Abu Dhabi soon (huge post in the making). Until then, be sure to tune in on Instagram for all the updates: @vickyheiler. Happy hump day & sending you lots of sunshine!
