DAY 9

VISIT SOME XMAS MARKETS 

We hit up The Club Xmas markets last night  in a attempt to capture the winter spirit. I think we did a good job of this we had some strong winds, a low temperature of 20 a little bit of fake snow (what a dream for the kids ) free mulled wine, hot chocolate and roasted chestnuts. There was an opportunity to stroll the market and look for something unique, whilst the kids were entertained making Xmas baubles and watching magic shows with carols playing in the background. I am pretty sure you can find a version of this almost anywhere in the world some more authentic than others. In Abu Dhabi there are a few still left I sourced some and have listed them below of course you could always jump on a plane and experience the real thing only 6 hours away but much colder (like freezing cold).
