The Step: New Horizons

I was always fond of seeing new places , testing new things , facing new challenges.But the biggest adventure ,and the most challenging step I have ever made is this time.

I moved to live in Canada for a while.It is a big step ,I never spent more than few weeks in any where out side Libya.

I don't know yet for how long I will be staying here.
I started working ,I enjoy the new experience.
OF course ,every thing is different ,the land scape ,the weather,the traffic laws( well,that is the main issue for me at the moment)
I took this step after much consideration ,and with the support of some of the closest people to me.
They encouraged me to take this step ,to try some thing new ,restarting my career,reaching new horizons,and to see more of the world.
They were great ,their support was amazing ,and their words were inspiring.
So ,I took this step ,I left every thing I (thought) I knew ,to sail through uncharted (dimensions)So ,here we go.
I don't know what the future hides ,but what ever it is ,I just wish it will be some thing nice. At least no monsters ,demons ,or dragons lurking in the dark..
Pray for me friends
Till Next Time

My Little Adventure

Hello every body..
It's been a while ,I know
I got really busy with a lot of things going on with work ,study ,and
Although I'm late ,but happy Ramadan every body ,and Happy Eid..I wish you all enjoyed the holy season with your loved ones..
Those who follow my Blog ,know about my hobby of hiking ,and doing little adventures and expeditions every now and then..
Few months ago ,I visited Tobruk ,the home twon of my father..Visited the area only 4 times in my entire life ,but every time I find out a new thing..
Tobruk has an ancient ,rich history..It has a natural Sea Port that made it an important trading center through out history ,and it's position near the Egyptian borders gives its future many potentials.
Tbruk is also known for its role in World War II ,where it was the center of the attention of the fighting forces ,specially the German and the British .
I was lucky enough to visit Wadi El-Sahl ,or the Flat Valley ,which is located in the western entrance of the city..
The sides of the Valley has a lot to say about this war ,Trenches ,Tunnels ,Strong points .
I climbed down and walked through deep darkness ,with a small falsh light and my cell phone camera.
Some of the tunnels were flooded ,in others i sank ankle deep in thick layers of mud
But I made it through ,and took some amazing pictures..
No more to be said..
