It is unbelievable that with a total fare of P8,000.00 I was able to go to the Middle East. Lucky me that I got a very cheap promo fare from Air Asia which I booked three months in advance and that rate was already a roundtrip ticket. The only thing is that it was not a direct flight. I made connecting flights from Clark to Kota Kinabalu to Kuala Lumpur and to Abu Dhabi. It was long but nevertheless it was a fun trip.
Entering into the Arab world was an opening salvo for another great year of travels. Middle East was another experience to treasure and to share to everyone. I spent a total of 14 days visiting United Arab Emirates with highlights of visit to Sheik Zayed Mosque in Abu Dhabi where I was hosted by my former college classmate Juliet. Then a visit to Burj Khalifa, the newest tallest skyscraper in the world and a desert safari in Dubai where I was hosted by my friend Franie.
I had a short stopover in Kuwait where at least I got a glimpse of what the country looks like. And of course my visit to Jordan was exciting of all because I stayed in a hostel where it was so fun to stay at. I met so many backpackers. I love the people of Jordan. They were so kind and friendly. I visited the main treasure of Jordan, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, that is Petra. It was so stunning. This adventure was definitely amazing.
