A Visit To One Of Dubai's Wonders, Hatta Dam

Hatta is a Sheikhdom in the Hajjar mountains- an exclave of the Emirate of Dubai, UAE to the south-east of its' main territory. Its' capital town is also named Hatta (which includes a reconstructed heritage village by the same name). Hatta is about 115 km (71 mi) east of Dubai City. Because of its altitude, Hatta has a milder climate than the city of Dubai, making Hatta a popular vacation place for Dubai residents. - UAETrips

 Hatta Dam

It was one of those mundane days when we decided to go road tripping.

Hatta Dam was planned a long way back but it was yet so hot to go there.

Then, winter was coming, heat and humidity was tolerable so to there we went.

There was a cycling tournament when we went there.
Unfortunately, it was finished when we arrived.

I admit, it was so tiring going up :P

Al Fayyah Desert: Stargazing, Finding Orion

If a star would light up every time I think of you,
the nights would then be brighter than the days.
~ Adapted

Sharjah, United Arab Emirates

One of the places in UAE where you can enjoy the night sky with blanket of stars.

Take me somewhere I can just be Me.

Orion, where art thou?

Can you spot any constellation?

Drunk in the beauty of my Sky.

Twinkle, twinkle, many stars. 

Thanks to
we got to know this place.

A Galaxy, eh?
I won't tire looking at you.
