As you may or may not know, I lived in Dubai for just over 2 years. These were easily some of the best years of my life so far.
Every day was an adventure and I never could get used to the fact that I actually lived there. Every day I would wake up and just look out the window and say to myself "wow". It was almost like I was dreaming the whole time.
I don't know what it is about Dubai that I loved so much. Theres just something about it though, that will always hold a special place in my soul.
From the people, to the food, to the adventures, every day was a blast!
One of my favourite things to do in Dubai was to visit the desert. When we first moved to Dubai we did the typical Desert Tours that tourist do. But being that we lived there for so long, we couldn't keep living the tourist life, we had to live and truly experience the local life.
Some of our friends called us up one day and asked if we wanted to rent some ATV's and take them out in the desert. Of course we agreed, because I always love a good adventure, and so we packed our stuff, prepared some lunch and headed to the desert.
We all met up literally in the middle of no where.. I am still unsure as to how the GPS knew where to take us, but my husband was driving so I guess I will never know (lol).
Our friends brought some meat to bbq, and ordered some ATV's to be delivered in the middle of nowhere. It was one of the best times of my life. But then again, I guess I say that about everything... but it really was! My sister and best friend were in town too at the time visiting me from Canada so it was the perfect adventure for all of us to experience together.
After spending the day on the ATVs, getting sand in our hair, jumping off of dunes, crashing, and having fun, we set up the fire (the guys did) and BBQd the meat they brought once it got dark and the stars were out.
Theres no better feeling then being with the people you love, and experiencing a moment that you cannot get anywhere else.
