So I am back from Dubai after covering The Proteges trip to Dubai as I announced before (link)! I will take you through it day by day in episodes, starting with this one – The take off Kuwait and arriving to Dubai and our hotel, Westin!
Initially.. Dana AlOtaibi, of Pink Coffee, did an amazing job with regards to booking tickets, hotel reservation, and announcing meeting time and point at Kuwait Airport. I remember handing her my documentations and travel expenses about a week or 10 days before the trip when I was invited… and she did the rest! Chapeau bas! Awesome work Dana 😉
Anyways… we were supposed to meet at Kuwait Airport around 6:30AM on July 8th. The Proteges, mentors, some family members were all there ready to take off…
The place was full of positive energy and full of laughs! I was getting to know them more and more since I only attended few lectures throughout the course with them (here & here), but I felt I was part of the group so soon! They are, the mentors -whom I knew most of them- & the students were so friendly and very welcoming!
And it was finally time to take off via Fly Dubai.
We were handed out the boarding passes randomly, so I didnt know whom I was sitting next to, and so were the rest of the group who did not seem to mind at all. After take off, and after the seatbelt sign was off, I walked around trying to snap random pictures of the students, volunteers, mentors, their families… everyone doing a different thing! They even sang “Happy Birthday” to Mariam AlOmani who’s birthday was on the day!
And here we are Dubai 😉 Gathering point after baggage claim and short speech given by Mohammad AlMunaikh pulling an “Abdullah AlEisa” kinda spirit! Abdullah was laughing the most I guess!
Anyways… we took the bus to the hotel. We made a mini stop at a grocery store, but throughout the way.. The Proteges were singing many songs and played games to kill time… which was passing by fast 😉 A sign of having a good time I guess!!
and we got to our hotel at around 2:ooPM, in which we were given 30 minutes to freshen up and get ready for the first field trip to Sharja.
To be continued…. 😉
I loved the part when Munayyikh kan iqallid Mentor Al-Eisa 😛

seems interesting … what was the trip for exactly? howz fly dubai btw?
The students are taking intensive courses in Kuwait in lecture rooms at GUST. They study self-building, business, music, quran, arts, IT, theater and more… so this trip was to break out of the routine and visit some interesting places and have fun. It was much needed as the students had so much fun. Lots of family members were flying with us too.
Fly Dubai is okay – similar to Aljazeera so dont expect to much 😉
i like the idea of this project but i have quistion why only from 16 to 24 year ??
Yes… many applied, but only 25 students were selected between the ages of 16 and 24. 🙂 Visit their website (link above) for more info 😉
thank you ansam for covering this trip, it was an honor having you come along with us, im so happy i met you! these pictures are priceless, the time passed by so fast, and the small moments can never be forgotten! i think im still high from dubai lol. cant wait for the next posts!
