Welcome to the November edition of your Travel Tea Break!
As the Autumn months fade away, and we welcome the month of twinkly lights, Christmas trees and gifts galore, let’s remind ourselves of the top travel news stories that happened throughout November…
If you’ve been following the news religiously, then you know that Bali has been under threat due to volcano Mount Aguing erupting.
Over 100,000 residents have now been evacuated, but the world is on tenterhooks to see how much destruction this volcano might cause to such a beautiful country.
Check out this article from the Express, which details all the important updates you need to know about Mount Aguing, including an earthquake that struck the volcano in the late evening yesterday.
I’d also just like to take a moment to send my love and support to both locals and tourists that have found themselves out there at this time. You are all in our prayers.
On November 11th, the first universal museum in the Arab world was opened to the public.
Borne out of an intergovernmental agreement between France and the United Arab Emirates, Louvre Abu Dhabi is an inspiring collaboration to help bring the UAE into the art and cultural world as a leading destination.
According to the Khaleej Times, the launch of the museum was magnificent, with live performances throughout the night, accompanied by fireworks and the unveiling of the museum’s most impressive exhibits.
So, I guess the question on everyone’s lips now is: when will you next head to the UAE?
