Travelogue Dubai & Oman (Oct 2011): The Three Amigos

A journey is best measured in friends, rather than miles – Tim Cahill

Oman and UAE are never high on my places-to-go-before-I-die list (a list which currently includes Bhutan, Maldives, New Zealand, Patagonia, Machu Picchu, Tibet, Austria, Kashmir, Jordan, Korea… among others. It is quite long, aahh). If not for my two dearest friends who reside there, I probably would never arrived.

But as Aldous Huxley said, “ To travel is to discover that everyone is wrong about other countries”. With the power of observation, even mundane sights become enlightening, and the people become entertaining to watch. There is always something to discover and new things to learn in a foreign land – no matter how ordinary a city is, if you open your eyes and heart, you bound to be what you aim to be: a traveller.

But most of all, sometimes, it is not so much of the destination that make or break a trip. It is the companion that you keep. You could have been anywhere, but with the right person next to you, it would have been a trip of a lifetime.

So thank you girls, for such a wonderful, wonderful time. Thank you for all the hospitality and pampering (never knew it is so nice NOT to backpacking and living in a hostel for once, hahaha) and great meals (I gained 2 kg, thank you very much). Thanks for the love.
