Weekly Photo Challenge: FAMILY (Day 10 at Yas Island)

I was so glad when I found out that this week’s WordPress photo challenge is about “FAMILY.” I was about to post the sequel to the series of my Yas Island adventure, and Day 10 was really about “family.”

I invited my wife and son to come over and join me here in Yas Island. Since I arrived here, I had been wishing they were here with me enjoying the sights, the food. And since my work here as a paramedic for Formula 1 has been completed, I decided to bring them over to let them experience Yas Island too.

They left home around 9am and reached Yas Island by around 1pm.

 Mom’s Pisces. Inigo and I are Crabs. The three of us are water people.

I like the effect of the fountain on this shot 🙂


Behind us is the Yas Visceroy Hotel and the blue race track is part of the Yas Marina Circuit. Yas Visceroy Hotel is a 5-star hotel with a unique design that was set half on land and half on water. It is the only hotel in the world located inside a Formula 1 circuit, with the racetrack passing through under the structure.

My son couldn’t believe that Formula 1 race cars are for real. They only have them as toys. It’s his first time to see them in real action.


Ferrari World is the world’s largest indoor themepark. It is also the home of the “Formula Rossa” , the world’s fastest roller coaster.

“Can we bring this home, Dad?”

The boys drooling over Ferrari cars.


 After Ferrari World, we visited the newly opened IKEA shop here in Yas Island. After that was a nice dinner at Jing Asia, and a relaxing evening stay at Crowne Plaza Hotel. And there goes my FAMILY day. I hope you enjoyed the pics. Watch out for the sequel (Day 11 at Yas Island).

Thanks for your time!

    wow, my friend what a way to wrap up your stay in Yas Island. you must have enjoyed it very much and how lucky your son to be able to set foot on a foreign land at such a young age. He must have enjoyed it especially seeing the Ferrari’s and you/your wife, hmmm, must be an experience you can never forget… 🙂

    I like the first photo and the one with the falls. By the looks of it, you had fun, so happy for all of you… 🙂

    I’ve been to a Ferrari center in Maranello, Italy. My friends heralded it as the highlight of the trip over Carnevale and all of Venice. They coughed up good money just to drive a Ferrari.
