Liwa Desert - May 2013

"Where do, you fancy going Friday? Your Shout"

Bit of a cheeky reply from myself, but you have to ask, "I wouldn't mind a spot of lunch at the Liwa Hotel".

With a very surprising swift answer of yes, a round trip of just of 240 km was required from our base in  Abu Dhabi, I had previously visited Liwa Desert and another visit was a must, England is a bit short of deserts so sad Englishmen like me get a little overexcited about sand and heat (we have a lack of that in England as well).

Well that was that, well it wasn't to be honest, the whole trip to Abu Dhabi was a payback to the family for me buggering off to Chernobyl and a bit of guilt for a yet unannounced trip planned for later this year. Even on a family trip you need a bit of non beach type stuff, so this was my day.

A hotel is hotel and I'm sure you don't want me to turn into a food critic, but for what its worth, the Liwa is on top of a big hill on the edge of the desert, lunch is a buffet, they don't sell alcohol until about 5pm on a Friday - lunch is about £25 per person but its literally the only place to eat.

Enough of the waffle, on with the pics.
