Looking back at Year 2014
I know it’s so cliche to reflect back on the year that was, but it’s something we all think is important to do. It is that time again to look back and see how enriching our walk has been. These walks, these journeys opened a new horizon in front of me and helped me see the world with diverse perceptions.
As I always say, I count my memories, not places and I am happy that my travel memories are far more and better than the destinations.

I do. Sometimes.
Why sometimes? Because when I enjoy a place I forget about clicking pictures, let alone sharing them, instantly then and there. 🙂
Nonetheless, here are a few pictures that I had managed to Instagram when I was in Abu Dhabi. Presenting you the story of Abu Dhabi in Instagram.
On that note, here is my Instagram account. You may love to follow it for these glimpses from across the world.

Only natural materials have been used in the mosque such as marble, crystal ceramics, semi-precious stones, mother of pearl and even gold. As I enter the mosque, I am blinded by the sheer white of the 82 domes.

May I add ‘weirdest’ and ‘smartest’ as well? In my opinion, Abu Dhabi is the hub of strange and interesting buildings.
Have a look.

The Abu Dhabi trip came as a surprise to me. To talk of modern technology, I was contacted through Whatsapp since I was traveling. I asked a few questions and only when I confirmed my participation, they sent me a formal invite. 🙂
Coming to the trip, it was beyond my expectation. It was my first visit to Abu Dhabi, so I was looking forward to see the gem of desert. And it surprised me no end!
