📸 Smallest mosque I have ever seen in the desert of Hurghada, Egypt 🇪🇬 Story। Part 1
I am not sure if this place has one of the saddest story or the happiest. It's a mixed feeling I guess. Thinking about it makes me want to cry but at the same time I had to accept the reality, Qadr of Allah, I guess it was in my destiny.
So, this is a story about a convert or a revert. Before we travelled to Egypt, I got married and it's only been 2 months. I also bought a brand new iPhone 6s for £700, which was same price as both our return tickets to Egypt. On our journey to Hurghada, we went via Amsterdam, then stayed at Istanbul for 3 days, then went to Cairo and stayed there for 4 days including attending an Egyptian wedding on the river nile cruise , then flew to Hurghada and stayed over for 4 days. Now imagine the photos and videos I had taken on my phone.
On the second last day of our trip in Hurghada, we decided to take part in a desert excursion with a buggy. The excursion base was one hour drive away from our hotel and then another 40 min with the buggy on the desert to reach the rest place for some camel ride, arabic coffee and sunset observation. The happiest part of the excursion was that I got to drive the buggy freely without holding a proper driving license. As a non driver, my wife (who is a driver) had a desire that one day her husband drives her around and I fulfilled her desire.
On our way back to the excursion base on the buggy, my iPhone battery 🔋 died. So I put my phone away in my pocket. The ride was a bumpy one. When we reached the base, as I got off the buggy, I realised my iphone was missing 😮. My heart paused for a moment. I notified one of the excursion leader about it, he came and checked the buggy, dismantled the seats and checked again. It wasn't there. Now the guy seemed a bit worried and he asked one of his quad biking instructor to take me with him and follow the buggy trail we used. At that very moment I made a split second decision to jump on that guys quad bike to rescue my iPhone.
Does that make me an apple fanboy? ⬇️ Please don't say, Eehh Yeaaa, I dunno.
