This was my first New Year holiday week spent abroad. I tried to combine a comfortable climate (+25 in January, can you believe it?!) with cultural learning. And this idea worked out pretty fine!
The destination was the Arabian Gulf. I’ve got 3 days in Dubai/UAE and 4 days more in Oman. These two periods were so contrasting! Skyscrapers vs. traditional architecture, expat-friendly vs. traditional, urbanism vs. nature! The list of “mutually exclusive paragraphs” between two locations may go on endlessly!
But let me try to explain such experience as I usually do: by 10 thoughts.
For now I don’t have anything special in my engineering path to share with IT community. One way I would suggest you, my dear reader (if you really exist) – relax and take my thoughts about travelling.
At the beginning of April I got a chance to do what I like the most – travel. I was interested to explore Baltic coast, my home country neighbors. Here are Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Belarus. Also I desired to visit Kaliningrad, the place between two different histories. It was challenging because of different cultures, proximity, European architecture, cheap pricing. And just for interest. You know, you might go to more popular destinations at any time in your life. But such journeys are reasonable only in youth.
So, here is my trip map and now I’m going to note 10 distinct impressions I was felt.
I promised that I won’t make any post at this blog about my life leaving this source for IT experience. But now I see this rule as a limit. If you set the limits – you’ll never be free. So, try to do what’s curious for you all the time. That’s why I’ve got this post.
