My skydiving moment
Hello everyone, this is Khadije Taha speaking to you on my first but not last blog for the course of Digital Communication. Today I will be telling you about my last super exciting one-week vacation, which took place last January in Qatar.
My best friend Nouf was waiting for me at the airport to pick me up to the hotel, I stayed at Millennium plaza hotel, which is located in the heart of Doha city the capital of Qatar.
My friends and I decided to spend the first day at Katara Cultural village, which is one of the most famous touristic attractions in Qatar, located in Doha exactly next to the beach, where you could see a number of buildings were built on the old traditional Qatari style, all forming around a huge open air amphitheater, that hosts national and international live concerts and artistic shows. We visited couple of art exhibitions for different artists. After that we went to the beach to experience the amazing activities happening on Kataras beach so the best choice on a sunny day was to rented water Jet Ski and enjoy the speed and seawater splashes.
The next day we wanted to try something different which was visiting Souq Wakef, which is the oldest Souq in Qatar its actually more than 100 years old, later it was renovated to contain many cafes, gift shops, jewelry shops, traditional Qatari home equipment, traditional Qatari fashion shops and a lot of shops that sells spices and nuts it reminded me of Bulk Barn store her in Ottawa.
The third day was the day that I have been waiting for too long; skydiving was something beyond my depth to do. However, I took my decision and went over with my friends to Al Khor airport in the east coast of Qatar. The crew over there gave us some instructions in the beginning and then we took the plane and flew almost 1200 feet above the ground. Once I jumped out of the plane with a certified skydiver I holed my breath and screamed with my full energy, it was incredibly fascinating to see the skyline of Qatar. I was tickled to death with this experience; I honestly would love to skydive again in Ottawa.
That was all about my super exciting vacation, I hope you enjoyed it, I would love to hear your comments. I’ll make sure to provide you with the links along with my blog for the places that I visited in case you may want to explore more about this beautiful country.
Bye for now.
