Expectations were high, but were easily met. The word that comes to my mind to best describe Yemen is "magical". It's unlike any other place I've been to before and often I felt like I was wandering through some fairy tale land. This is because of the unique architecture, the impressive natural beauty and the friendly people. Everywhere you see people chewing qat and showing off their jambiyya dagger. My favourite places were the medina of the capital city Sana'a, the lost paradise island of Socotra and Wadi Do'an.
Sooner or later this will certainly become a popular travel destination!
