Last November 30, 2018, Tep and I, together with our friends, joined a tour called the Wilderness Exploration at Umm Tais. This particular tour was hosted by Qatar Natural History Group and Richer Environment, and headed by Dr. Aspa, a Desert Ecologist.
I was supposed to write a blog about our experience during the tour, but due to a lot of videos that I took when we were there, I decided to make a short clip about it instead, which you can watch below.
It was a fun and informative tour, though it entails a lot of walking. So if you are up for some adventure or you just want to do something new in Qatar, you may check this tour out. For more information, please check the FB page of Qatar Natural History Group and Richer Environment.

Seven years have passed since I gave birth to Matteo, our first born baby. Over those years, a lot of people thought that we were having issues and difficulties in getting pregnant again, but the truth is, I was not ready emotionally and I was so afraid that the same thing might happen to our next baby. Last year, I must admit that I was pressured because I felt that my time is ticking, I am on my 30s and most of my married friends already have babies, some of them even have two. Whenever I see them playing with their kids, I knew then that I wanted to have one. I remembered praying to God, telling Him to be in control of everything. If having a baby is part of His plans for us, then let it be, but if not, we will accept whatever it is that He has in store for us.
Then, just before 2017 came to its end, we received one of the greatest blessings, I am pregnant and the monthly journey towards motherhood began.
