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!

    Hey, what happened to the scarves, hats, gloves, warm jackets etc !
    Probably the only reason you were pleased to leave beautiful Paris for UAE is the weather.
    What an experience, out in the true desert with sand dunes, camels, eagles etc. marvellous.
    Does the big water playground come next ?
    Dad is really keen to pick you all up at the Airport. Do let us know if this is ok or you have someone else collecting you ??
    Are you still on Etihad Flight 460 arriving Friday at 7.15pm ??
    Enjoy your last couple of days.
