Day 3 in Abu Dhabi
After a lovely lay in we met at lunch to go to the Yas Marina Circuit, for those who don’t know it is the Abu Dhabi Formula one race track.
First stop was lunch at the Origins restaurant at the Yas Marina Hotel, the hotel is literally smack bang in the middle of the race course.
The amount of effort which is put in when making all their food is incredible. The intricate detail of the desserts (again my favourite table) made you not what to each them. (Who am I kidding get in my belly!!)
After lunch we were driven around to the drag race track, we got into pairs to complete drag races. I drove a bumblebee car!! (if you have never seen transformers google it)
I actually managed to win 2 out of the 3 races, I loved it I got to 200mph I was so excited I would so do it all over again! After completing the drag races we also got the chance to change wheels pit stop style. The standard formula one team change tyres in 2 seconds, the quickest my team could get it done was 6.7 seconds.
After the day at the track we went back to the hotel to get ready for our final dinner.
We had dinner at The Ritz Carlton hotel, in the Li Jiang restaurant. Again lots of Asian influences for dinner. We had Asian spiced lamb chops, chicken curry, duck wraps. It was so nice and the setting for dinner was a great way to end an amazing few days.
I feel extremely lucky to have been able to experience this trip with work. It really showed that hard work does pay off.
That’s my 3 days in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, I hope you enjoyed! Have you ever been to either?
