Going to the FORMULA 1 2018 ETIHAD AIRWAYS ABU DHABI GRAND PRIX every year is a must!
But before the car racing that takes place in November, from the 23rd to the 25th, I like to enjoy the DUBAI AUTODROME with my daughter and my son-in-law (of course, we use the autodrome in times designated for beginners only): the Kartdrome … it’s fun!
They are fearless behind the wheel and that’s the kind of competitors I like to confront. But all in the name of good fun, of course. The thing is that who ever loses in the autodrome will be paying for the tickets to the musical concert we’ll be assisting to the off track racing night of all nights fun on Sunday November 25th: GUNS AND ROSES ladies and gentleman!
My Favorite to WIN this year:

Now, seriously, I hope this year’s Formula One gets better than last years. Gotta admit that it was a boring experience. I like adrenaline and spice in car racing. 2017 brought fans such high points as 35 spot grid penalties for teams that were forced to change an engine or transmission before the FIA, in its infinite wisdom, thought appropriate. The FIA has this absurd notion that fans care a flying fig leaf about durability of powertrain components. Note to Jean Todt, the taciturn head of the organization — they don’t.
This year’s preliminary schedule features 21 races — the most ever — but the teams will be forced to complete the expanded format with one less engine. Beginning in 2018, they were allowed to use only three engines for the entire season. Last year’s (2017) driving champion, Lewis Hamilton, frets that this year’s car will be like driving a bus because the drivers will be forced to conserve the equipment instead of battling each other on track.
If you missed this year’s great Abu Dhabi 2018 car racing, you can still prepare now for next year’s:
AUTUMN IS ONE OF THE BEST TIMES OF YEAR TO TRAVEL TO EUROPE
I usually pack my luggage now and make preparations to travel to Europe, but make no mistake, I have to come back to my neck of the woods to take care of things and then go back to traveling.
So I actually travel twice in Autumn. I like to combine my travel destinations with my autumn medical conferences I plan to go to this time of the year.
My favorite places to visit in Europe are Germany (Bavaria, I love it!), Austria and Dubai. But the second time I return to the EU I like to explore at least a new city I haven’t been. This time I want to go to the South of Spain to enjoy the Moroccan culture too.
Expo 2020 Dubai — running from October 2020 to April 2021 — is conscious of the fact, and this week released details of its legacy plan at real estate industry event Cityscape Global 2017. Dubbed “District 2020,” the area which the expo occupies in Dubai South will undergo extensive redevelopments before reopening in October 2021 — not long after the expo closes in April that year.

Some buildings will remain unchanged, including the Santiago Calatrava-designed UAE National Pavilion, modeled on the wings of a falcon. Others will be transformed on the inside: The Sustainability Pavilion, for instance, will live on as a center for child and scientific education. The Dubai World Trade Center Conference and Exhibition Center will also remain once the expo closes.

A SUMPTUOUS AFTERNOON IN DUBAI
Traveling across and around the world is something exotic I love to do. I get to go to medical conferences, I learn, I bicycle in new paradises, I eat wonderful food. But to get there I also love to do it with style and elegance. Using the right airplane that provides to their customers not only safety but extreme comfort and class.
December is here and Dubai is just around the corner.
