Well, after 150 straight days of work 12/7 without a break I'm heading to Dubai to meet my daughter to celebrate her birthday. A full week planned:

Ski Dubai
Burl Al Arab hotel
Wild Wadi Waterpark
Hard Rock Cafe
Wonderbus tour of the city
Desert Safari/Dune Bashing
Cleopatra Spa (for her - not me)

I haven't seen her for 16 months so I'm really looking forward to it. If you haven't seen these places Google them - they are pretty amazing.

Enjoy your time- with the hard work and sacrifices you've put in, you deserve it.

That's great, ABA.

I hope you two have a great time. I'm sure it'll be nice to see family after putting in so many hours of work and offering what you do for your country.

Perhaps you guys can indulge in a little beach volleyball? Don't let her beat you too bad. ;)

I think it's pretty amusing that the Seminole Indians own a restaurant in Dubai, UAE...

Oh, and do try to enjoy yourself.

Seriously, have a great vacation. You've earned it, and then some.

Enjoy it!

That Ski Dubai thing is pretty impressive. I was watching the Discovery Channel show about them building it. My guess is you probably won't want to leave there after all that time in the desert heat.

It's probably not worth the struggle, but you are going to at least get to do some really cool stuff you might not have otherwise done.

Enjoy ABA , you deserve it.

It's good to hear that you're headed to a better place to simply relax and enjoy time with your family.

Don't forget to swing by and pick me up. I'll be waiting at the pax terminal. ;)

Have a good trip.
