Did my second Umrah today for you, Mama. Went a little emotional during Tawaf & Sa’ie while performing Umrah for you just because i miss you so bad and knowing tomorrow is your birthday. I wish heaven has visiting hours for me to visit and celebrate your birthday tomorrow. I may not be able to send you any cards but insyaAllah, you will always be in my prayers. Rest well, my angel. One day we will be together again because the next time i see you, i know it will be forever. ❤️ #mecca #umrah #holymosque #kabah #blessed #allah #saudiarabia #photography #photooftheday #instamoment #love #wanderlust
2. Jeddah safari
The vast Saudi desert has to be seen to be believed - the safari tour involves a traditional bedouin tent experience, falconry, quad biking and more. This is an experience for everyone!
1. Al Ola
A truly fascinating city, Ola was historically on the incense route and within the city you'll still find archaeological remnants, some over 2,000 years old. History buffs will adore this trip.
