It was my second time to visit The Heet Cave in Riyadh City. The first time was a few months back at dawn. I was the only one there at that time, and I can tell you that it was a once in a lifetime experience. To be able to go down a hole not less than 50 m deep created by natural earth processes over thousands of years, and be the only one there at that specific time were things I found amazing.
The cave lies about 40 km outside Riyadh, the off-road part is only around a 7 minute drive. Anyone can visit it at anytime, the location is on Google Maps too! I highly recommend the visit to be around the same time I went the first time, at dawn. Absolutely magical!
Here is my experience the second time I went there with a friend.
1. Guam, one of the many states that make up Micronesia is known for it’s beautiful golden sand beaches and cosmopolitan ways. Although it’s small enough to explore in a day or two Guam’s breathe taking beautiful views will leave you awe struck. With a blended population of indigenous Chamorro, Filipino and Asians, Guam’s diversity translates through the food and culture. Guam provides a genuine, culturally vibrant experience.
I grew up and have lived in a beautiful, crowded, and metropolitan city by the name of Jeddah. If you haven’t heard about it, this article will provide you with some interesting information about my city.
L’ossuaire municipal was incorporated on the 1st of January 2013 in the public institution Paris Musees .
It’s one of the 14 museums in the city of Paris. Earlier in the 4th century, Parisians’ burial grounds were to the southern outskirts of the Roman-era Left Bank city. After the Frankish invasions and the Roman Empire’s fall, Parisians abandoned this settlement for the marshy Right Bank. Their first settlement was in higher grounds of Saint-Etienne church and burial ground, by the 10th century these marshlands were at its fullest, thus instead of burying their dead away from inhabited areas, the Paris Right Bank settlement began its life with cemeteries at its center. Their most central cemetery was a burial ground at Notre Dame de Bois church, which became a property of Saint-Opportune parish after the original church was destroyed in the 9th century by the Norman invasion, it then became its own parish under the Saints Innocents church from 1130, this burial ground is filling the land ,today, between Rue de la Lingerie and Rue Berger, had become the city’s main cemetery.

When we think of summer we immediately think of holidays…resting..relaxing…sunbathing… This year, however, I chose to spend my summer differently. Since it’s been a tough year, I wanted to do something unusual with my life, something fulfilling, something… that would make me want to wake up in the morning and not complain about too much sunlight. I took an offer of becoming a teaching volunteer in Romania.. crazy, right? The offer sounded too good to be true, so I immediately pictured my poor body being sold for parts, but I went for it anyway. Said tearful goodbyes to my family (may be seeing them for the last time, right?!) n off i went. When i reached the airport I was apprehensive..anxious… but happy. I met other volunteers and our amazing adventure started! I got a chance to live in 3 places all in all: Bran, Fundata and extraordinary Bucharest…
