2012 in Retrospective

August 2, 2014

Posted by Kanga. Please do not reblog.

2012 was a year of exploring the UAE, especially our new home Fujairah.

Early 2013 involved a day trip to Ras Al Khaimah to visit the Pearl Museum. Original post here.

We enjoyed the Sharjah Light Festival. The fire display at the Blue Souk park was amazing. That is a tough act to follow.

Other activities on our list were the Bithnah Fort, the Bidyah Mosque, Sharjah Archaeology Museum, Arabian Wildlife Centre, Dubai Museum and Creek, Emirates Airlines International Festival of Literature, and Al Ain Jahli Fort.

Our summer trip was to Singapore. The sights and food were wonderful.

Near the end of the year, life took an unexpected turn when my mother died. I traveled home for the memorial service and time with my family.

I got my fair share of jet lag, because we traveled in December for Christmas with DaddyBird’s family.

  1. You are nearly up to date, so does this suggest you are days away from “leaving on a jet plane”?

    I wish the two of you every success for your new posting and look forward to the updates 🙂
