Did you know…?

…it is 8,245 miles from Austin to Abu Dhabi?

…the flight from Austin to Abu Dhabi is 16 hours long?

…that if there is a hysterical baby in the seat next to you, the flight is actually 874627512 hours long?

…the average annual rainfall in Austin is 33 inches?

…the average annual rainfall in Abu Dhabi is 2.5 inches?

…the population in Austin is 901,756?

…the population in Abu Dhabi is just over 1,000,000?

…the elevation in Austin is 489 feet?

… the elevation in Abu Dhabi is only 88 feet?

…that I’m leaving, yet again, to visit CGMan in Abu Dhabi?

…that no babies are allowed in the exit row? That’s right, I’m in charge of opening the parachute slide!

See you next week, when I’ll be Dawn in Abu Dhabi!


  1. Have a wonderful time (flight notwithstanding)! :)

  2. Did you know that Austin gets a little gloomier when Dawn is in Abu Dhabi?

    Have a great time, but hurry back! Give CGMan a hug from me!

  3. Have a marvelous trip, and bring us back some sand!

  4. Save travels!
    Can't wait for the updates from over there.

  5. Have a wonderful time and a safe flight and can't wait to hear about your adventures with camels.

  6. Can't wait to read a post from Abu Dhabi! Be safe.


I would love to hear what you have to say!
