The world is definitely big!
Full of so much unknown, especially for those who hadn’t stepped out of their hometown. For them, world is completely different from what they are used to with. I was one such person before I boarded a flight to Sharjah from Karachi on 4th Jan 2017.

Yes, I’m back from what I can definitely call a trip of a lifetime (at least for me and my family, it was). For us, it was like seeing all those things about which we have only read or seen on TV before. So this trip was indeed very special.

Me, Jia and Uzair spent few days in Dubai with my uncle and his family. We enjoyed great road trips as highways in UAE are really mind blowing (yes, for me they are). We experienced the wonders of a global city for the first time and it was a unique experience for us. We also checked out other areas of UAE like Al-Ain, Fujairah and Sharjah.

For the first time in my life, I saw and meet people from countries other than my own which was an amazing experience. Life of Karachi is unique in its own way I say but when you step out from here and experience something entirely different, that’s when your perception about the world, where you live, changes so vividly.

Those 6 days of early January 2017 were so remarkable for me and my family as we will remember them up for the rest of our lives.
After all, it was our very first time!
