My sister and I were in Dubai and getting a bit tired of the skyscrapers and man-made attractions. We decided to do a desert safari and found out how much fun you can have in a desert—even if you're a bit past your prime! I got to sand board on a dune. We don't do much of that back home in Boston. Plus the picture makes me look considerably more athletically skilled than I am so that was a huge plus! We also rode a slightly resentful camel, smoked shish (or tried to), held a falcon, saw a whirling dervish and a belly dancer and best of all got to have wine under the desert stars!

Wahoooooo! What else is there to do with thousands of miles of open desert land?
Get out of the city and head into the dunes for an adrenaline rush....
So much fun. Our jeep did get stuck in the dunes and the other cars had to pull us out. Funny experience.
End the rush with a breathtaking sunset....
The Safari Tours in Dubai are a must see, must due if you have any desire to scream at the top of your lungs, experience an adrenaline rush and feel blissful in the open air in the sands of the Middle East.
