Travel Itineraries: Abu Dhabi, UAE

Writing

Part of an assignment to research and create travel itineraries
for destinations all around the world, for different types of travelers.
This installment: Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

Unlike the other nine cities in my mega-assignment, I had a friend who recently had spent a year or two in Abu Dhabi, and was able to suggest some suitable places to profile. Such an assist was greatly appreciated.

Head here for a whirlwind “24 Hours In” piece, and here for a two-day “Culinary Tour” itinerary (which is one of my favorites because they left in several of my intros that had fun plays on words, like “Every Day Is Hump Day” for a blurb about a place that serves camel burgers).

This installment: Sintra, Portugal. Of all the locations I wrote about, this one enchanted me the most, and I might just end up visiting the area in 2018.

Head here for a three-day “Countryside Pleasures” piece, and here for a five-day “Family Fun” itinerary (which let me use the phrase “It’ll be epoch!,” so of course it’s one of my favorites).

Head here for a five-day “Family Fun” piece — the opportunity to wear
a real diving helmet sounds cool, but personally I’d spend all day at Vizcaya — and here for a three-day “Island Adventure” (which includes a snorkel/scuba tour of a series of shipwrecks).
