Surprise! You’re going to Saudi Arabia!!!

About a week ago, we were told in a meeting that we had to make an unexpected re-fueling stop in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia and there would be a chance that we may be able to get off in port! A few days later, we were informed that not only would we be able to get off, but we were going to be officially welcomed by the Saudi government with a day filled with festivities!

What we experienced on April 25th was absolutely incredible. It was a day filled with music, dancing, feasting on dates, Arabian coffee, grilled camel and baklava, a cultural exchange in the desert and unbelievable kindness!!

It was seriously one of the best days of my life.
