We are back on Texas soil! We had a long day getting back from Abu Dhabi, but it was wonderful! Etihad airlines is great: comfortable, friendly, clean, accommodating and generous. We flew from Abu Dhabi to Chicago in just under 14 hours. Our connecting flight to Dallas on American Airlines was 45 minutes late leaving, but I slept all two hours of the flight.
The trip to Abu Dhabi was extraordinary! The people are wonderful: kind, gentle, beautiful. The food was amazing! The sights were outstanding: the buildings, the mosques, the malls all architectural wonders. We loved everything we saw and welcome the adventure, should it be offered to us.
We are catching up on sleep; unpacking boxes; visiting w /our families and readying for more adventures. We’ll be in Texas most of the month, with a few side trips within.
I know that travel is a great educator. I am grateful for this education.
P.S. our daughters are also thriving in their respective new places! *happy mom doing the happy dance!*
