Have any of you been to Dubai or Saudi Arabia?
Map taken from HERE.
I need a holiday and have been seriously thinking of visiting these places.
Dubai has an estimated population of close to 3 million people.
I have some friends, from the UK, living in Dubai and they have invited me to come and visit and stay with them.
What a wonderful opportunity that would be to take a break, sightsee and do some shopping!
And, I saved the best Dubai pictures for last. The World's largest water foundation. It sprays over 22,000 gallons of water into the air, features over 6,600 lights and has 50 different, unique color projections.
NOW, Saudi Arabia is Dubai's neighbor.
Saudi Arabia has an estimated population of 28 million people and is home to the largest oil reserve and oil exporter in the world.
I actually met someone in Bali a few years ago who is from Canada and working in Saudi Arabia with an oil company and also, someone from Malaysia who worked there teaching English.
I would love to meet with both of them again, if I decide to visit there. It would be great to catchup and get insider recommendations to the best spots to see while there...maybe even tour the oil company and see how they operate. Exciting!
It's always great knowing people when you travel.
That's one of the things I love so much about living in Bali is the opportunity I have to meet people from all over the world.
You just never know when your paths will cross again or when you may need them for something.
