Last Week’s Weekend Trip: Aqaba and the Red Sea

Wow. I am so unbelievably bored right now. Which is a sharp contrast to the past week when I couldn’t afford myself an hour to blog or even take a nap despite being chronically exhausted. Those are usually things that people don’t write in travel blogs or tell their friends and family about but sometimes there are moments that are very very dull.

But nevertheless, what I didn’t have time to share last week was that a week ago, I spent a few amazing days in Aqaba on the Red Sea! A few friends and I were at the Movenpick Resort and it was just a relaxing and wonderful experience.

There was a lot of swimming in an assortment of infinity pools, tanning, more swimming, indulging in an awesome water slide at the resort, swimming in the Red Sea, (which to my amazement was an incredibly deep blue color), diving and jumping off a dock for hours into the ocean and talking with some locals in Arabic until I got to sail for the first time in my life!

It was an awesome short vacation and the story is best told through photos. The land visible across the sea is the Sinai Peninsula and when we went to get dinner at night, the lights of the Israeli city of Eilat were glowing brightly about 5 kilometers away.

I wish I could be in Aqaba right now!!!
