I am one of those who never knows the direction of my journey until I have almost arrived. – Anna Loiuse Strong
Last weekend, I was asked by my company to go to Abudhabi which is kind of good news to me. Another chance to explore Dubai again and do a photowalk, ignoring the fact that the sun-king is more powerful this time of the month in middle-east. I don’t care as long as I will have fun! Besides, it’s a good exercise, not to mention my training for heat will be enhanced.
I headed to Dubai after my work week and the next day I was in Jumeirah Beach at around 9 AM. Whoah! I was amazed that there are actually athletes there having their training in open water; too bad I wasn’t able to take a snap of it because of that “NO-PHOTOGRAPHY” policy that they have, though I know some could break those rules, Naah, I won’t jeopardize my camera for that. 😛
From afar, I saw Burj Al-Arab and decided to go there by foot. There were two indians (Tamil and West Bengali) I met from the hotel and I asked them to join with me. Damn… It was really scorching hot during the duration of our exploration (EXPLORATION?!) and I felt a pang of guilt seeing them in
agony. I don’t care about myself due to my so-called and self-proclaimed-endurance-to-pain. We walked for maybe more than hour, with rest in between in the bus stops in between (because it’s air-conditioned) until I declared were riding a cab; hence we arrive at the destination after five minutes. We arrived at Burj Al-Arab and at least had a closer look of the Building. Going inside that building is yet to be discovered on my end. Yes!
Well, our adventure just didn’t end in Burj Al-Arab, There were nearby areas we roamed around in the vicinity. There’s the Wild Wadi; Another area to be visited next time, the Jumeirah Hotel and then the Madinat Souq which I love the most because of a different ambiance until we decided to move to Mall of Emirates for a quick lunch at around 2… We were all dehydrated in kissing the sun! 😛
Overall, it was really nice walking along Jumeirah Road. It could have been a more eventful photowalk only if the weather was less cruel. Anyway, I need to make the most out of it and that’s what I did. Great Experience!
