My mom and I left for Dubai on Wednesday afternoon.
The airport struggle wasn’t so bad. (Nigeria airport struggle is real, if you know what I’m talking about). We checked in, oh you know how before checking in, they check all your bags, like literally bring almost everything out (except you pay them of course, but aint nobody got time for that). Well, the
guy, man that checked my bags started flirting with me in front of my mom. Talk about disgusting and he even had the audacity to say ‘Your mom is here so I won’t say much but when you come back’. I was like huh? But you know you can’t be rude to these people before they frustrate your life.
We sha successfully and without dropping cash anywhere checked in.
Oh, we bought the wakanow travel sim and even topped up $10 each. Continue reading for the gist about that one.
OH MY GOSH. YOU GUYS. I WATCHED THE SUN SET FROM ALL THE WAY UP THERE. IT WAS SO BEAUTIFUL!
We transitted in Doha for like 35 minutes
and then we were on the flight to Dubai. My dad insited on us going with Qatar airways and so we arrived at Al Marktoum airport which was quite far from the hotel. We arrived in the middle of the night so we figured taking the bus might be better and cheaper. It was actually pretty comfortable, I slept.
So, I decided to put my wakanow sim so I could message a couple of people and stuff. (I broke my phone so i’ve been using an old iphone 4s which was recently repaired…. in the process of them repairing it, they messed up the wifi thing so it’s pretty difficult to connect to the internet). I put it in, and I quickly sent some messages on whatsapp, not up to 5 minutes into that, they said my $10 was done. Nonsense something. They told us, they won’t charge roaming rates and that was the main reason we got it. Clearly, they were lying.
While waiting for the bus, my mom was my photographer.
I already knew I am terrible with maps but I confirmed it this morning.
I hope you enjoyed reading this!
More updates on the trip coming soon. I plan to do some fun tours. Let’s see how that goes because so far, I’ve been really lazy!!!! I just wanna sleep.
