ARABIAN MOVES : DUBAI AND ABU DHABI
This month, I have been relatively quiet on this front as I just relocated to a new city – so things were pretty hectic as you can imagine!
The new city is Abu Dhabi, an hour away from Dubai, in the Arabian Gulf. The weather is gorgeous this time of year; the intense summer humidity has gone, leaving us with warm sunny days and cool evenings.
My perception so far is that Abu Dhabi is the “old money”; relaxed, elegant, and mature, while Dubai is the “nouveau riche” – flashy cars, lights, crazy traffic and a vibrant nightlife – Abu Dhabi’s crazy little sister. Driving through Dubai you get the feeling that you’re opening a jewelry box – each building competes with its neighbour to dazzle you with unique forms and bright reflections.
I love both so while I spend the workweek in Abu Dhabi, I come for my fix of party in Dubai (or at least so far)!
Though I still have a lot of discovering to do to nearby islands (of course you will get to see snapshots of those places if you’re on my list), I can share a couple of preliminary shots I took in my first 10 days here…
Here’s to a beautiful Life
