My name is Fameena Mariam and I enjoy my vacations right here in the UAE. I would not want to be anywhere else. The city I live in is wonderful during summer.

Many families enjoy their holidays by heading to other destinations. But why would I want to follow them anywhere?

I prefer not to “do'' much while on vacation — just relax, read, sleep, swim and attend piano classes.

The best part of my vacation this time was when my father took us to the summer festival in Abu Dhabi. We also went to Wild Wadi in Dubai.

My younger brothers, Faizal and Farhan, also enjoyed their holidays here in the UAE.

We spent a lot of time together and had loads of fun.
I think we live in a great place with great people.
