Boating in Red Sea Obhur Creek – Saudi Arabia

Luckily, while living in Saudi Arabia, we have always found good neighours – most of them Pakistani, Egyptian or Jordanian.

It was his wife’s birthday when he invited us all for a lunch and then to a boating trip in Obhur creek, North of Jeddah. Continue reading Boating

A Stupid Idea

It was mid of Jan. 2010 and we were having lunch together in a restaurant In Ajman state of UAE. After joking with each other and discussing some stupid ideas, we agreed to even stupider idea; to go for jet skiing. You might be surprised that why it was a foolish idea but you would agree with me by knowing that, at that time, none of us knew swimming. Continue reading Jet Skiing Full Throttle
