Circumnavigated the World from UAE to America back to Asia

an Overseas Filipino Worker vacation leave to Uruguay, Chile, United States and Philippines
January 24 to February 08, 2020

Circumnavigation refers to the complete navigation around an entire island, continent or astronomical body (planet). The first circumnavigation of Earth was the Magellan-Elcano expedition, which sailed from Seville, Spain in 1519-1522, after crossing the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian oceans. On my case, I started my flight from the Middle East where I am presently working and plan to pass the three continents. From Dubai, I went to very long flight to South America, went up to Westernmost side of North America, went to my Homeland and finally back to my work place. The actual objective of this trip (served also as my 2020 Birthday get-away) were to continue the beyond #lakbay100 quest, to explore the Easter Island by biking, to witness the Northern Lights in Alaska and re-visit the newly cleaned Boracay Island

Circumnavigated the World from UAE to America back to Asia (2020 Vacation Leave)

Abu Dhabi Folding Bike Cycling (38 km): Grand Mosque - Zayed Sports City

April 18 (Saturday), 2020 in Abu Dhabi City, United Arab Emirates

Folding Bike Cycling is my newly discovered hobby in the UAE's capital. This is an alternative / replacement for my itchy feet on my quest to fulfill my beyond #lakbay100 journey for other countries which I did not visited yet. As what a usual traveler quote, there is no place like home. Abu Dhabi City is my home for more than three years and surprisingly, biking gave me a one-of-a-kind perspective on the amazing views of this city. Thank you Abu Dhabi :)

My biking adventure starting point is on my home building along Hamdan Street. The best way to do this journey is through Al Bateen first, then to Al Khaleej Al Arabi Road passing through Capital Center, Zayed Sports City, making U-turn in Grand Mosque, coming back through Bin Saeed Road (Airport Road).

Route Flow : Al Bateen - Capital Center - Grand Mosque - Zayed Sports City - Philippine Embassy - Airport Road
Route distance : more than 35 kilometers (start / end in Hamdan Street)
