First Time Scuba Dive

On this day I tried out scuba diving for the first time. I thought I could try it in the sea but as I had to find out that is not possible without any prior experience so I had to do it in the pool. It was nice getting to know the gear and breathing underwater for the first time feels very weird.

Exploring Dubai

452m burj khalifa

On my second day in Dubai I went out to explore a few of the touristy spots of the city. It was a sightseeing day but a lot of fun. From top of the Burj Khalifa you can see over a lot of the city although the observation deck on the 124th floor is only 452m high. The whole building is 828m high.

Dubai Adventure Begins

I’ve been reading a lot about Solo Travel in the last couple of weeks or even months. I was fascinated by the idea to explore the world and what better way to find out if you’d like to travel the world alone than to try it out. Now, I only did a short trip of a week to the United Arab Emirates but it turns out, I like to travel solo.
