Going home .. blogging from Dubai Airport.


March was a total madness , out of 31 days I spent a little over two weeks traveling between more than 5 cities and three continents.

Went to Cairo , Beirut , Damascus , Dubai , Lahore and Islamabad .
Being on the road is really tiring , despite the fun of seeing things from a different angle , and trying different life styles and atmospheres , getting to know people of different cultures , but still , its very unstable .

We arrived to UAE two days ago , had a meeting in Abu Dhabi , stayed in it for the whole two days . the city is nice , a lot of towers , wide streets , many of you are probably familiar with that city style , yet it misses the coziness I simply love in Amman.
Anyway , for the past two nights , after finishing with our business meetings , we went on walks in the city , and visited two of the pronounced malls , however each time , I reach when its almost the closing time , so I did not get to do any shopping , which is somehow better for my pockets !

Right now I’m in the Dubai’s airport , thinking to check the duty free after finishing this post .
I have not blogged for a while , neither checked any of my favorite blogs , its just that one becomes anti-laptop when you connect the laptop to work all the time. So usually , the free hours you get are spent somewhere away from the work tools .. anyone can get my idea here ?

Anyhow , I guess I’ll finish here and call it a post . gotta run and check the duty free before the take off :).

Allah ya3tiki il 3afyeh!! hehe...7amdillah 3asalamtik, hope your trip back home was safe and comfortable! you did a lot of travelling, which I consider "healthy" every once in a while:)
A friend of mine has become a pilot, and only recently he started getting used to it, first he thought it's just so tiring and unstable, but now, he got used to it, and just loves it!!
anyways, I missed yr posts, glad you are back:)

Hey Nido :) Allah ysallmek ya rab .. o y3afeeky kaman :) .. well .. its not THAT healthy .. but I guess I am coping to it like your pilot friend .. I started to feel too comfortable with aiports , that some airports I know better than some places in Amman .. the bad part though is plane food .. !

I quit my previous job because I had to travel a lot, it started causing some problems at home, so I chose a more stable job. Now that I don't travel anymore, I kinda miss all the thrill at airports and seeing new faces and new cities.

I know what you mean .. I thought- still thinking- of that several times.. especially at some points where I no longer was able to handle the pressure and unstability .. but I try to remind myself that nothing comes easy .. :) .. so far I'm hangging in , despite the 1000 I thought to quit ..

Thanks Summer :) .. yes I'll be blogging more about Pakistan soon inshallah .. I still have few things to write about :)..

ArabLady :) UAE emnawreh be ahelha :) dayman .. Yeah .. I did not get the chance to explore much .. I guess I'll have a better chance in next visits inshallah ..

Hareega
Well , it depends in Queen Alia Airport , you get a one hour use , through the 24 hours for JD's ! in Dubai's Airport , it was totally free . in Cairo's it was free but I was never able to catch the signal ! so I guess .. it depends .. :)
And Allah Ysallmak ya rab :)

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I earn money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my web site to get additional info.
