Destination: Makkah, Saudi Arabia

Going to Makkah to perform Umrah is a very spiritual experience, I didn’t realize how much I missed this holy place until I entered the Haram and set my eyes on the Holy Kaaba... I got this overwhelming feeling which I cannot describe or express in words.

Performing the rituals of Umrah was almost effortless, the cool weather was a major factor of course.

This time we decided to try one of the newly established hotels in the area so I picked the Makkah Royal Clock Tower Hotel, thankfully it was a good choice! we had a pleasant stay and the staff was very friendly and helpful; there was some construction work still going on though which was a bit annoying, but I guess this should no longer be a problem within a couple of months. I will definitely stay in this hotel again on our next visit Insha’Allah.
