Exploring the beautiful, pink-hued skies high above the Persian Gulf as our airplane ascends towards cruising altitude. We take a final glimpse at the incredibly vast desert grounds far below us and wave goodbye to this mecca of dunes before our views are obstructed by masses of clouds.
Discovering tranquility in this sky high retreat with the monotonous, subdued roaring of the jet engines soothing our minds. Sunshine streams through the airplane’s windows into the cabin gently warming the skin on our arms and legs. We close our eyes and retreat inwards to be with ourselves. Alone.
