Medvedik was so excited to go to Fujairah after his friend told him about this amazing place: One of the prime spots to do is Snoopy Island, so-called because of its apparent resemblance to Charlie Brown’s canine chum lying down. Snoopy is about half and hour north of Fujairah town and located just 20 metres off the Sandy Beach Resort. The journey from Dubai should take between an hour and a half and two hours. That’s what Timeout said with the voice of Medvedik’s friend.
Medvedik was climbing the shoulders of his friends to see if they can spot Snoopy Island already or not. It’s been already quite a long ride, but no sign of Snoopy Island yet.
By the way, it was a national day of the U.A.E., when they decided to go on a trip and Medvedik noticed a lot of people in festive mood all over the country. There were pictures of Sheikh’s drawn on the mountains, flags everywhere and by 2 pm people already started to gather together.
Long story short, Medvedik only arrived to the Sandy Beach Resort at 3 pm, which took them 4 hours to get there from Dubai. You might have thought that they took the long road, but no – they just followed the directions of the article.
The resort looked nice and Medvedik stretched his legs on the long chair, exposing his white hair to the mighty Arabian sun.
Five minutes later Medvedik heard a very loud noise. What could it be? He looked around, startled, but saw only a couple of drowsy Russian tourists around. Suddenly there appeared a large number of boats of all kinds with U.A.E. flags on it.
Medvedik waved to the guys on the boat and they waved back. What a nice way to celebrate your national day, thought the little polar bear.
After boats disappeared, he fell asleep on the chaise-long and saw a dream about celebrating a national day of the North Pole. He was cruising on the ice floe and waving a white flag to the Shell drilling guys. Somehow it didn’t feel as festive. There was something wrong.
