The Star Of The Arabian Nights...
One Night In His Dream...

A Fine Day In Aladdin's Aspiration...
A Solitary Retreat To The Persian Gulf...

Having Escaped Jafar's Clutches...
With Clever Genie's Aid...

Having Won Jasmine's Hand In Marriage...
With The Sultan's Permission...



Having Returned Together, To His Ammi Jaan...
His Heart Longed For A Solitary Retreat...

Not With Jasmine, He Wanted To Go Solo!
Because, A Surprise Awaited Her, Upon His Return!

But, Abu And Iago Made The Magic Carpet Disappear...
He Had To Find Another Way To Fly!

In A Twist - Of Tale, Genie Suggests...
Why Not SkyScanner, Ali Bhai?!

He Magically Made His IPad Appear...
And Logged On To SkyScanner...

Poof!

They Had To Choose A Starting Point...
And, Here They Were...

In India's Capital City...
Ready To Begin Their Travels...

Why Delhi?

Upon His Travels Far And Wide...
Aladdin Stumbled Upon India...

And, It's Fables As A सोने की चिड़िया In The Past...
Stole Aladdin's Soul, Mind And Heart...

And So, India To UAE, It Would Be...
Delhi To Abu Dhabi It Would Be...

On The Other Hand, Jasmine Sulked...
Aladdin's Surprise, She Could Not Guess...

Thus, She Restricted His Budget To Rupees One Lakh...
She Challenged Him To Surprise Her, Within These Constraints!

Genie The Djinn & SkyScanner The Wizard Got To Work...
To Plan His Flight To Abu Dhabi And Back, Was Their Task Number One!

Etihad Airlines, Their Trusted One...
With The Round Trip Covered In Approx Thousand Thirty Three...

An Entire Week In The Persian Gulf...
The Accommodation Had To Fit...

With Approx Thousand Sixty Seven... 
To Be Spent On His Lodging And Travel...

They Went On To Decide On A Central Location...
Luxurious, Yet Economic For Ali!

Grand Millenium Al Wahada, It Had To Be...
Class Comfort, Economic, And Yet, Luxury...

Out Of The Sixty Seven...
Were Left A Twenty Eight...

The First Day Was To Be...
Dedicated To Local Sight Seeing...

The Abu Dhabi Corniche...
And, The Al Ain Oasis & Museum, It Would Be...


What Floored Ali, Was The Pristine Waters...
The Beach Front Combined With Shopping Hub...

Was The Perfect Getaway!

Corniche Yachts
Corniche Breakwater

The Al Ain Oasis, On The Other Hand...
Nearing The National Museum, Its Beauty Lay Unexplored!


Al Ain Oasis


At The End, Of A Day Well Spent...
Ali Took Some Rest...


In The Night, Genie Was Summoned...
With His IPad In Tow...

They Had To Hire His Car...
For His Voyage To Dubai...

After All, It Was The One...
The Emirate Junior To Abu Dhabi!

Out Of A Thousand Twenty Eight...
Genie Booked A Mini, For Days Four...

Poof!
Genie's Gone!

Ali's Pocket Became Lighter...
With Only A Seventy Five Hundred Left...
For Dubai!

Dubai, Posed For Ali, A Traveler's Paradise...
With The Burj-Al-Khalifa, Palm Jumeirah, Dubai Marina!

August 2 Was Spent...
At The Khalifa And Marina...

Clockwise from top: Burj Khalifa; satellite image showing Palm Jumeirah and The World Islands; Dubai Marina; and Sheikh Zayed road

Palm Jumeirah & The Dubai Mall Took Up August 3...
Ali Shopped For His Sweetheart At The Largest Mall...
To His Heart's Content!

August 4 Was To, Contemplate At Dubai Creek...
Also, To Adore The Grandeur Of The World Trade Center!

August 5 Was Spent At The Al Bastakiya...
Appreciating The Sun Kissed Sands And The Camel Rides...


August 6 Marked Ali's Return...
Back To Abu Dhabi...


He Took That Day To Explore...
The Heritage Village And Park...

Also, To Appreciate The Serenity...
Of The Abu Dhabi Waterfront!


August 7 Was The Day...
The Last Day In The Land...

He Took That Opportune Moment To...
Offer Prayers At The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque...


Praying For A Safe Journey Back To India...
Back To His Jasmine, And His Ammi Jaan...

Having Exhausted His Rupees Seventy Five Hundred...
On Buying The Perfect Gifts...

For Jasmine, His Sweetheart...
He Emptied Dubai's Malls! :)

Yet, What He Did Not Know...
Was That Jasmine Was Tracking His Travels...

Genie Was Assisting Jasmine...
Telling Him About All Of Ali's Whereabouts...

And, So, Jasmine Was Travelling Virtually...
Across Abu Dhabi And Dubai! :D

Aladdin Had Finally Passed Jasmine's Challenge...
Of A Travel Wizard's One Lac Rupees...

When He Returned Back Home...
Jasmine Had A Surprise For Him, In Tow!

Rajah The Tiger, Jasmine The Princess, Jafar And Genie, Welcoming Ali Back Home...
On The Magic Carpet!

Abu And Iago Were Back...
With The Magic Carpet Teaching Jafar A Lesson...

Jafar Mend His Ways...
To Extend To Aladdin, With Rajah, Jasmine & Genie...

A Warm Welcome!!! :D
