Asia, Abu Dhabi

"From the Pharaohs to the Incas, the Indian subcontinent to Persia, the glittering Oriental land of thousand and one nights, through the mysterious Silk Road to warm Africa." "Jewellery and gold are the most controversial and fascinating items throughout the whole history of mankind." If these words awake the curiosity in you, visit the 5th Abu Dhabi International jewellery and watch show from November 21 to Sunday 25. Mingling among the gold pieces is probably not your usual habit during the day. So, change your habit and spend few wonderful days in Abu Dhabi.

weekend 23Middle November to Middle March
Canada, Preeceville

If you are ready for the original adventure, get six days off and reserve them for the special ride. It includes company with Huskies and moose, so prepare for the adventure of your life. In six days you will experience true nature in winter conditions. At the first day you'll be acquainted to your new friends. Then, you will get help with harnessing the dogs, and you are ready for a ride. First, with help of your guide, than, with God's help, you will ride dogsled alone. Whole six day in motion with beautiful dogs will give you some new view on those beautiful creatures.

weekend 23When stomach cries for help
Europe, The Nederlands

Amsterdam in numbers: 3.500,000 tourist annually, 173 nations, 600,000 bicycles, 1281 bridges, 22 Rembrandt's pictures, and even 206 of Van Gogh. More numbers: 24 workshops that polish diamonds and 2500 houseboats that lie in Amsterdam cannels. Now, when you know those numbers you can say that you know almost everything about Amsterdam. But, you don't. Amsterdam has 755 restaurants and if you want to know it better, eating with Dutchmen's real Dutch kitchen is the best way to feel Amsterdam. For your stomach's enjoyment visit The Blonde Hollander (which else!) and eat beans with bacon and onion. For desert order some old-fashioned Dutch deserts. Now you are in Amsterdam!
