A UAE taxi driver had never been to Ferrari World - so this man took him!

Meet Liam Murphy - he is here in the UAE at the moment on a buisness trip! While not busy working, Liam is checking out the sites of the emirates!


On Sunday he took a taxi to Yas Island and decided to spend some time at the famous indoor theme park Ferrari World...

Whilst chatting to his taxi driver on route, Liam found out that his driver had never been to a theme park, or even on any rollercoaster in his life!

So instead of letting his taxi driver, Shakiha, wait in the car - he invited him along and bought him a ticket!!


Shakiha's first ever rollercoaster experience was on the Formula Rossa, the world's fastest rollercoaster!!

Talk about jumping in at the deep end!


Liam spoke to Buzzfeed news about his day out and said: 

“Every time he drops passengers off he stays in the car for the day. I decided to bring him along for the laugh. He was great entertainment. I bought him some pizza on the way home. His family are in India and he said he sends money home each month.“

Liam, if only there were more people like you in the world!
