Our weeklong break (due to Eid al-Adha) is concluding in few hours. I am glad that I decided not to travel outside the UAE and tried a combination of staycation + never tried stuff. Productivity and leisure rolled into one. I am happy, too, that I gave Abu Dhabi Grand Prix a go last minute and that the tickets “found me” just in time even if it was impossible to source out that hour. Watching a race up close was a new experience. At first, the engine’s roaring was so deafening, despite the ear protection provided to us upon entry to the designated grandstands. It was a thrilling experience. Congratulations to Sebastian Vettel, the youngest Formula One champion.
A glimpse to 1966 and 1979 Grand Prix in New York and Austria, respectively..
Another new experience for me, a concert marathon.

In the current provisional calendar of the 2011 grand prix, there will be 20 races (the 19th race will be in Abu Dhabi on 13 November) and the finals will be in Brazil on 27 November.

that’s a great “staycation”. i would love to watch a grand prix. i heard the sound of the engines is really deafening but i bet it’s worth the experience =)
it’s long weekend here and we’re also just staying put. lazy mode lang the whole time haha!!
this is one time nobody minded having a staycation if there was an abundance of things to do and see at home.
UAE is becoming a very modern society – grand prix, golf tournaments, concerts of rock bands – what more could one ask ? Awesome 🙂 I love to visit the place one day.
