A postcard from Ras Al Khaimah

Today a bit of geography class.

I am very certain the readers living in the UAE will not learn a lot and just enjoy the pictures but some of you might be less familiar with the much talked about U.A.E.

Did you know that the United Arab Emirates founded in 1971 is a gathering of 7 emirates, among which the very famous Dubai and the capital city Abu Dhabi? And no it does not include Qatar, which is another country.

During the last 2 days, I had the chance to discover a new emirate: Ras Al Khaimah…it was high time after almost 3 years living in Dubai!

Ras Al Khaimah means literally “top of the tent”. In this territory there are mountains where sometimes it might even briefly snow and beautiful beaches.

The Hilton Resort ans spa in Ras Al Khaima is offering in a beautiful flowery garden, a very peaceful cove with magical blue sea.

It is a perfect escape for family, with lots of kids-friendly swimming pools and playgrounds. The hotel is roughly 1h40 minutes drive from the center of Dubai.
