Desert driving

27 Oct

Yesterday we went to a desert in Dubai, it was really big !  First we got picked up by our tour guide then we picked up the other people in our group. After that we drove into the desert in a 4×4  it took  1 hour.

Then we let our tires out so we could go up and down the dunes without flying off them!  The drive felt like a roller coaster because we went up &down and side to side,it felt like we almost flipped over! It was really fun!! Then we arrived at the Beddoin tent village.we sat on pillows and we had a low table.There were a few free things you could do or get done here they are…You could get a henna tattoo,we rode a camel, I held an Eagle, there was belly dancing,and we had a HUGE banquet!

Me running(well actually walking) up a sand dune.

This is the 4×4 we drove in.

Me holding the eagle!

Us riding camels im on the second one :)

Currently waiting in Abu-Dhabi Airport en-route to Frankfurt.  Was great to break the long-haul trek to Europe with a stopover in UAE.   Fantastic to catch up with Kaye and Chris, and to meet little Barnaby.  Had dinner last night with Jez, Binx and little Ellie too.

Abu Dhabi is all sand, construction and some amazing architecture….

Arrgh flight is boarding…. more later
