Today was spent at Abu Dhabi and saw The Grand Mosque. Such a beautiful, peaceful place. Saw the Formula 1 track and also passed by Ferrari World. Wanted to see Emirates Palace but sadly that was shut on a Friday. However we stopped off at Heritage Village and saw some history of UAE. Hubby also got to see one of his friends who he hasn’t seen since he got married. Got back to the hotel and finished packing to leave the hotel at 11pm.
