Getting lost in a road trip could sometimes turn out good, even if it means reaching the destination seven hours rather than 1.5 hours on the shortest route. We found ourselves on the outskirts driving just at 60-80kph rather than the 100-120kph highway speed. There's so much to see and wonder on so we would slow down or stop on awesome views.
We started in Dubai from left towards Fujairah at the lower right. We took the red route going and returned home on the blue road.
|Dubai - Falaj Al Moalla - Al Dhaid - Masafi - Dadna - Zubara - Al Bidiya - Khorfakkan - Fujairah|
Here's some takes along the way:
|This house must feel so secured sitting on rocks in Masafi, Ras Al Khaimah|
|This was our sight for hours, but we loved it along with the curvy two way roads|
|Looking at these creations caught my interest in geography|
|There's no fancy food courts on the road. |
Either stock food in the car, buy corn and fruits from this vendor,
or eat at local restaurants which could be in the next 50 kms
|Hungry after four hours drive, at last by 3:30 pm we found a perfect spot for our packed lunch|
|After a filling lunch, we let our tummy do good work while we wonder on the blue horizon|
|...while the Gremlin and his Dad worked on the sand.|
|Then here's Bidiya Mosque, believed to have been built in 1446 AD.|
It's the smallest mosque I've seen so far.
|As the sun was about to set, we reached our destination after seven real good hours. Small water swamps are a sight on the roads after the rain of ice earlier.|
|I asked the husband to drive in this house|
that cradled my first sleep in the UAE -- in Fujairah.
And there's our Fujairah drive. Now I'm looking forward to the next road trip.
