Traveling in a Rolls Royce Phantom

Our group (Dawn Run) decided as usual to go to Bahrain for an open track day at BIC (Bahrain International Circuit)

I was going with my frined Bu Zaid and his son Zaid, in a RR. I thought it is a Range Rover, But I was wrong.. It was a Rolls Royce Phantom.

I was in the passenger seat, and when we hit the highway, I thought for a moment there's something wrong with my ears. and I was not sure if I am feeling ok.

Everything was moving when you look from the side window. but I can't hear anything. Until Bu Zaid Asked me "Whats wrong with you" then I laughed knowing that I was in a Phantom and that's normal not to hear anything. 

The seat was so comfy and thats urging me to sleep.. but it was fun having a chat in car like having chat at home with total silence.

And off to the borders, everyone was scared of the car and our process was so easy!! Shallow people!

Once we were in KSA on the way to Bahrain, I felt like being in a first class seat of the best airlines.. No.. even better. Zaid started giving us some snacks and refreshments. then I had a Banana! and I don't remember anything.. for an hour or so.

Ok, I am not the kind of person who falls asleep easily, especially when traveling in a car, but this is a first for me.. And maybe the last time to do it in a phantom.

We reached the hotel Sofitel, which unfortunately I did not have tie to review like I did with Banyan Tree last time. 

And off to the track since Bu Zaid already shipped his cars before to the track a week before.

Enjoy the pictures..
