A Whole New World


The Adventurer's Club holds a museum-sized amount of quirky artifacts from around the globe; souvenirs that the Club members have picked up during their travels. One such items is the Flying Carpet of Abu Dhabi, displayed on the wall on the entrance level to the Club. Complete with seatbelts, it has certainly been well-used for many magical flights.

The inscription belows reads:
Authentic Flying Carpet of Abu Dhabi Acquired by Lord and Lady Reed and donated to the Club's permanent collection following an unfortunate camel collision. Fortunately, Lord and Lady Reed walked away from the incident unscathed. 'It pays to buckle up.'

Wow. That is so cool!

Does it look like there is a lot of wear on the fringe?

I love the AC. You could spend hours, no days, in there and never discover everything.

I really need to visit AC when I'm down for MF or Everest Challenge. Want to join me Jessica?
