My recent get away was a very different from anything I have done before. As my husband was recovering from a very serious injury, we needed a rest. The last three months were quite difficult and being able to go away somewhere just to relax and enjoy sunshine was on top of the list.
We chose Abu Dhabi as we knew it will be warm enough and as we have been before we are not obliged to do a lot of sightseeing. We stayed in a beautiful surroundings of Ritz Carlton Abu Dhabiand we loved every minute of our little adventure. Abu Dhabi is full of contrasts. Not as glamorous and over the top as Dubai but still ultra modern and stylish. With pleasant temperatures of around twenty degrees it was a dream to spend a week in the middle of winter season when the temperatures in the UK are around zero..
The only thing on our list of things to do was to see the biggest mosque in United Arab Emirates Sheikh Zayed Mosque. It made a huge impression on me, its beauty, white stone, setting. A definite must see if You in Abu Dhabi.
To make things more interesting this time and hopefully take it to the next level I have included a very private room tour of our hotel room in Abu Dhabi. I sincerely hope You will like it, I certainly enjoyed filming it..
Traveling is something that excites me greatly ! I love that feeling when I am going somewhere where I have not been before. It does not really matter if the destination is 50 or 5000 miles away from my home. Adventure and taste of unknown is the same..
I had an enormous pleasure to visit Bangkok for our first wedding anniversary. It is difficult to say why we chose that city for that occasion but I have no regrets. It is such a vibrant place, never in my life I have seen so much street food, traffic, taxis and life going on…
We visited Bangkok in September and the weather was very hot and humid. Even traveling from one spot in the capital to another seemed like a proper challenge. Transport wise taxis are available anywhere and they are cheap but be prepared to be stuck in traffic !! You can also travel by boat (public or private), Skytain, tuk-tuk, motorbike taxi or bus.
There is so much to see in Bangkok that spending a week there is not enough.. My personal favourite attractions include:
Wat Pho(Reclining Buddha is enormous and absolutely breath-taking..)
Grand Palace complex a must even if You in Bangkok for a day
Floating market (we visited Taling Chan Market- real experience…)
Blue Elephant restaurant- real institution in Bangkok, Thai cuisine at its best !
Be my guest and enjoy Thai hospitality which is one of the best I have ever experienced..
I feel that every time I travel I benefit not only from amazing memories and pictures. I change and grow as a person and that is something that keeps me going until I have the next chance to escape my daily grind.
Please let me know if You liked traveling with me and let me know where would You like to go next ?
I am not a girl who dreamed about getting married since my childhood years. When I met my future husband we started building our relationship from scratch and it slowly developed into livelong partnership. After nine years together we decided it is a time to tie a knot and I would not change a thing.
My husband contacted truly amazing wedding planning agency Perfect Dayand they helped us organising our day. The whole credit should go to Monika the wedding planner from that agency. We got married in Poland in beautiful city of Krakow. It was a small church wedding with our nearest family and friends. I still remember the happiness of the day and how beautiful and sunny it was. We had our reception in the most intimate and private hotel Copernicus with every detail planned to perfection. Everyone that was invited to the wedding stayed overnight with us so we could celebrate together.
Wedding planning agency was a true live saver. As we both work full-time and the wedding was taking place in Poland it took some organisation and team effort to put everything in place but what we got in return is far more valuable… Beautiful memories and pictures that make us truly happy.
Be our wedding guest !!!
My eighty year old grandma is my best friend. I think she was more stressed that me as if it was her own wedding day…
With my proud dad… This beautiful dress I am wearing is by Polish fashion designer Gosia Baczynska. She is known for her unusual fabrics, beautiful laces and visible cuts.
I was really pleased with my choice and I still stand by my decision. My dress was made out of wool which is seems like a strange choice for a wedding dress. But it did work !
As I mention before the wedding reception took place in the beautiful Copernicus Hotel. We stayed there all weekend I cannot fault anything. It makes me truly proud to have that quality of service in my home country !
All of the pictures shown here were taken by extremely talented Adam Trzcionka.
I cannot imagine anybody else taking our wedding pictures. They are everything and more I could have asked for.
I hope You enjoyed reading this post as much I have enjoyed preparing it !
I had a chance to go to Abu Dhabi lately and take part in a safari trip going deeper into the desert.
The experience is unreal and I would highly recommend to do it given a chance. Combination of the sun, sand and jeep ride allows You to experience something very different and it helped me to reflect on my everyday life and goals for the next few months.
Choosing the outfit is not a priority but I tried to be comfortable and dressed appropriate to the occasion. I went for very neutral colours and my favourite, extremely trusted and bought on sale NLST pants- worth every penny..
The view is breath-taking and the sunset to die for..
The whole experience was very healing, no everyday luxury, no media just the view..
Traveling is something that enjoy so much that I could imagine myself giving up my everyday life in order to be able to do it for a living.. Maybe one day !!
I hope You enjoy looking at the pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them..
