World tour

If you could pause real life and spend some time living with a family anywhere in the world, where would you go?

I haven’t seen my only brother for nearly 3 years now. When we left Pakistan his daughters were only 4 and 6 years old. They are big girls now and I miss them so much. I used to live nearby to them and see them every few days. I loved playing with them. Now I haven’t seen them in 3 years and they are too shy to even be seen on Skype. I never went back and they never came to visit us in Dubai.

My brother is a doctor and he says he is too busy to take time off for a holiday. His wife and kids have only seen their home country.

If I could I would take them around the world with me to all the countries I have seen. First we’d go to the Far East soaking in the beauty of the islands of Langkawi in Malaysia and Phi Phi in Thailand not forgetting to take a jungle safari on elephant back in Thailand. Then we’d fly over the Pacific Ocean to Los Angeles. We’d spend the whole day in Universal Studios then to New York for a few days. We’d visit the Empire State building and the United Nations and spend our afternoons in Central Park.

Then we’d spend a few days in London to visit Buckingham Palace and London Zoo.  Next destination: Paris. We would go up the Eiffel tower during the day and dine by a nearby restaurant at night. From Paris we would take a train to Lucerne in Switzerland stopping to visit Jungfraujoch. Then onward by train to Rome to visit the Vatican, the Colosseum and other sights.

From Europe the next stop would be Egypt. We would get a panoramic view of the Pyramids of Giza on camel back during the day then dine on a boat on the Nile. From Cairo we would move on to Istanbul, Turkey, spending a few days there to have enough time to see the main sights.

Then in the end we’d spend about a month recuperating in Dubai after all our travels. The girls would love Kidzania and Ski Dubai and the Dubai Fountains.
