We finished the Hatta Mountain Tour and we were planning to head back to the city when our guide asked us if we wanted to visit the Hatta Heritage Village. I'm not a history geek and I wasn't really feeling the walking tour, but we decided to check it out for 15 minutes. Hatta Heritage [...]

I've been here in the Middle East for over nine months now. My, my, how time has flown so quickly. Despite being stuck working in a retail shop six days in a week, I try my best to travel during my days off. That is, if my body can still keep up with the lack [...]
