That one time I felt unsafe in Abu Dhabi

Good news: I think I'm okay with bus rides now. If you've read this post, you know that there was a point in my life where I stated and claimed with all my heart that I am not okay with bus rides. I'm taking it back. I've been using the bus as my mode of [...]

Get to know me more: seven unusual facts
