What could be cooler than traveling like a Sheikh in Etihad’s newest First Class Apartments, riding a camel, eating under the stars while watching belly dancers and exploring an ancient spice souk?

I concluded a business trip in London recently, and had to continue on to the Middle East for a few days. While I wouldn’t be going to Saudi Arabia like Muslim Travel Girl, the warm sands of Abu Dhabi and Dubai beckoned to me.
