United Arab Emirates

Dancing Fountains!

Very impressive how you can make water dance to Arabic music!

Finally Out of Town

And into the desert – yesterday couldn’t see as far of the next building due to a sandstorm
– and battled on for a very unpleasant  few kilometres before we turned back and just waited.

Arabian Road Sign

This time the local wildlife has a hump!

First Desert Camp

Using huge rocks, bikes, trailers, buckets and bottles filled with sand to hold down the guy ropes – even in this sheltered hollow the sand is still blowing – this sand isn’t like the beach stuff but instead a very fine dust that gets into absolutely everything.

The Real Mackoy!

One man and his dog or in this case camels – for us our first sighting.


Not the chocolate variety but breathtaking!

Road To Nowhere

A photo opportunity that Martin would not miss!


Hot, dusty and dry – time to lighten our load and drink a little from the 30 litres of water that we are carrying.

Dune Mania

Sand boarding without boards! Loads of silly fun simply climbing, hopping, jumping, throwing and sliding with Crocs and bags. Children adore bathing in sand!

On Your Marks Get Set Go!

The race to the bottom begins!
