Private Thoughts and Imaginations...

Aqaba

Sorry for being this late, but you may say that i am a lazy person when it comes to uploading pics ;)

anyway, here is a brief. During the eid, we decided to spend those 5 days in aqaba as a change. We stayed at the intercontinental. The following picture was taken from my room there. (yea, i do know that they have a great swimming pool ;)



nothing much happened on the first day, we went to our rooms, unpacked, got some rest, and then went to eat "iftar" in a resturant called "Floka", it's a good one compared to the other options they have there ;)

later on, the kids, went to swim, and my mom and cousin vanished somewhere, while my sister and i had to go shopping for eid gifts... (lol, women ;) we got back to the hotel by midnight, and since i'm fond of the sea, we decided to stay and sit by the shore.

The feeling of sand between my fingers was indescribable. Sea waves were chanting gently while kissing the shore… stars lit the sky, and the soft breeze of wind kissed our cheeks tenderly… we drifted far away with our thoughts, and chatted till it was 2am, that’s when we remembered that the very next day is eid, and we’ll have to wake up early :)

not gonna make this a long post, so in short, we spent the rest of the days building sand castles, flying kites, riding the banana boat, jet skies, and the inner tube. And since the king decided to spend eid in Aqaba too, acrobatic air force planes decorated the sky with streams of white smoke. the parade was really nice :)

we also went to take a look at Tala Bay, it’s marvelous! but since it's private, you some1 who actually has a house there to be able to go inside... (it really is worth it ;)


Our vacation ended, and it was time to go home... This is how the sky looked like on our way back... if it was a painting, i would have stood in front of it for hours ;) (arts club ppl, u know exactly what am talking about!)

that was the whole story of my trip, hope that u didn't get bored ;)

    U have had a great time.
    Ur description of the sea and the shore at night -- i know - a lovely experience - an unforgettable one :)

    The pictures are superb especially of the sky.
    I really get lost in the beauty of nature.
    Just had a glimpse of a lovely insect, much like samir's ladybird but greenish yellow in color.
    Nothing man- made can match the beauty and awesomeness of the natural beauties of the world.

    It's because I lived my whole life on a flat near the sea, I don't enjoy it this much, 7atta I don't even notice it. I missed that beauty.

    Tala bay was really amazing :) but they've sold all the houses there... maybe we'll get a chance to get 1 in the next bay they're making (yea right, we just need a million, lol)

    rowdyrascal:)
    i do believe that no matter how beautiful a painting or a picture is, we'll never be able to compare it with actual beauty of nature :) God is an artist, we're just amateurs :)

    Dar :) u can't help it! ma3lesh, bejeek yoom ;)
    actually am not a gr8 photographer :) this pic really doesn't show 1/10000 of the how beautiful that sky was :)

    the rest is called "figurative speech", didn't they teach u litrature back at school!!!

    Abed. Hamdan: thank u (hay el nas ele btefham ;) mesh zay ba3d el nas!!! hehehe

    ur lucky :) many ppl wish if they could live by the sea... but ur right, we never notice how important and beautiful things r untill we no longer have them :) maybe coz we get used to them, and consider having as granted...
