My desire for exploring the Seven Emirates of the United Arab Emirates made me do this.
Day 1. Solo Commute to Fujairah. I left Abu Dhabi via the public bus heading to Dubai at 12:00 noon and arrived at Al Ghubaiba Bus Station at 2:40 in the afternoon. Took the train to Union Metro Station to get myself on the bus to Fujairah. The trips were scheduled hourly, and I missed the 4:30 so went for 5:30. The travel time took almost 2 and a half hours, with the spectacle we passed by I surprisingly didn’t get bored the entire time. I made friends who were with me on that bus, talked about the place, and where to go to make the most out of our trip. Reached the bustling city of Fujairah around 8:15 in the evening and my friends picked me up to go to Khor Fakkan. Khor Fakkan is known for its stunning beaches and ambience. Located between Wadi and Fujairah but part of Emirates of Sharjah.
Day 2. Beach Time and Exploring. We woke up around 7:00 in the morning, had coffee and popped on the beach. Developed additional tan lines and unimaginably drank sea water one can ever consume. At 4:00 in the afternoon, decided to visit the Al Rufaysah Dam. Stayed for a while able to take pictures, and left hurriedly because of the uneasiness we felt from people staring at us because of how we dressed. Lesson learned, know the dress code of the place before barging in.
Day 3. Pool/Beach Time Again and Hitting the Road Home. Again woke up around 7:00 in the morning. Stayed at the pool real quick and came down to the beach one last time. Had to endure the massive waves and got multiple scratches from the sand when the wave dragged me. Nonetheless, the marks on my bum are the undesirable proof that I had fun. We checked out of the hotel at 12:00 in the afternoon and drove back to Al Ain. Made a quick stop to grab a bite and also in the middle of literally nowhere to capture some pictures for the gram. Arrived at Al Ain probably around 2:00 o’clock, got me a power snooze and left Al Ain at 9:00 in the evening.
I can surely say my holidays were well-spent with friends visiting new places. Here’s to more holidays and more adventures!
I hope you guys have had the best time over the Eid Holiday!
