Globe Trotting J's 2019 Trip Day 9: All My Troubles Seem So Far Away

We didn’t arrive back to our hotel room last night until close to midnight and I think it wasn’t until 1 AM that the last glow of Jake’s iPhone went off and we all fell asleep. Unfortunately we had a relatively early morning this morning to finish up our last full day in the United Arab Emirates. Jake and I went to an early breakfast while Jenn got ready and at 9:30 AM we were off into a taxi and on our way to Pier 7 at the Dubai Marina.

When I woke up this morning I was in disbelief that today was already our last day in Abu Dhabi. It felt like just yesterday we were driving past the Grand Mosque on our way to the St. Regis. And yet like clockwork the alarm went off at 9 AM and we were down at breakfast for one last run. Jenn had an omelette, Jake had an egg white omelette and I stuck with a light buffet breakfast. We took our time before heading back up to our room and packing up our suitcases.

Globe Trotting J's 2019 Trip Day 7: Saber the Spa

Yesterday we went to three incredible destinations in Abu Dhabi which made for quite the day. I still can’t get over how beautiful and memorable each of the destinations were. To follow all of that up we decided that we wanted a more relaxing final day in Abu Dhabi. We woke up at around 9 AM and Jake and I went for a quick work out downstairs. We came back up and got ready and the three of us went down for a lovely quick breakfast. I’m still blown away with how great of a breakfast spread The St. Regis puts on.

Globe Trotting J's 2019 Trip Day 6: Wisdom Begins in Wonder

I cannot tell you how nice it was to start today with some relaxation. We all slept in without trying after staying up relatively late the night before and didn’t let the bright Arabian sun wake us up. When we finally rolled out of bed Jake and I went down to the third floor to get a workout in while Jenn slept. Even after we arrived back in our room after an almost hour long workout Jenn decided not to join us for breakfast downstairs. She really missed out because like every St Regis we’ve visited they sure do know how to put on a breakfast spread. They had a little bit of everything along with a menu to order different egg items from. Jake got some eggs benedict and I just stuck with a light breakfast from the buffet. We had a nice little brother date in the beautiful breakfast room before heading back up to the room.

And just like that we’ve hit the end of our time in our first stop, Cairo. Luckily this morning we woke up at a more reasonable hour and were packed up and in the hotels Mercedes to take us back to the Cairo airport for the third time in 24 hrs. We dropped off our bags at the Egypt Air counter and made our way to our gate. Before that though we did grab a quick bite at Burger King where a Spanish family was having a full blown yelling match with the poor guy at the counter over their order. Luckily our two happy meals and double cheeseburger came out just fine and we were nice and fed before boarding the three hour flight from Cairo to Abu Dhabi.
