After having a busy year at work, I wanted to take a break and go to the states for vacation. As I am from Dubai I had two options either Emirates or Etihad after checking the prices and planning I decided to fly Emirates to San Francisco so I booked the first trip to San Francisco and the return trip from Chicago and I booked a month ago before my trip.

At the day of the trip the Chauffeur picked me up 3 hours prior departures and it was a Mercedes Benz but i didn't take any any pics till i passed immigration due to restriction in US flights and I wanted to play it safe.

before lunch I had a shower and believe there is not better feeling than having a relaxing hot shower after flying for 13 hours it refreshes you completely.
