Tourist activities at Dubai
During the first days of the trip I was “enjoying” tourist life: we went to the desert, safari , BBQ dinner, quad bike ride and a camel ride…. To be honest I didn’t enjoy it at all!! There were 6 people in our car not counting professional driver. We were taken up and down on dunes , only thought I had in my head was “God ,please let me out” :D. I wasn’t scared, to be honest, I just couldn’t enjoy it; all those fake screams ,but it was about me not being in the moment, not them.
Fun camel rides!!
The worst part of tourist life came when I went for camel rides!! I wanted to go and make sure that each and every one of those poor animals isn’t overworked, as they looked to be in bad shape :(.
Seriously, when you look at them and hear how hurt they are, standing up and laying down, ALL DAY in the hot sun taking those fat tourist asses on “fun” rides!! ARE THOSE HUMAN BLIND?? Why would anyone support that? It’s not a world I want to be a part of.
Magical Arabian show
But not everything was all bad, there were some good moments, actually. Evening part, for one, I enjoyed soo much!!
I enjoyed the food and Arabian dancer show, it was something magical. It was hypnotizing and you can’t believe that it’s even physically possible.
There was a man who was spinning on one side for about 10 minutes without stopping or changing his position, as well as the clothing, lights and music made it really special and beautiful.
Friendly people at Dubai
Experiencing the real Dubai isn’t all that hard – you just need to leave your hotel swimming pool and go out in the streets. People are friendly if a bit out of touch, since they’ve lived lives of luxury. Local ex-pats are especially open to show you around. Everyone is open to help you without expecting anything in return.
Cove Beach Dubai
My friend finally arrived to Dubai. We were more than happy to jump in to new adventures, first we were at a beach party. You could tell that was a local hang-out place, because nobody was dancing! But I like to dance so bad!!
So, basically it was place where everybody showed what they got , who has a hotter chick on their arm, who has more money and fancier clothing, there were also girls who were looking for sugar daddies and then there were us – watching everybody and having our own party! Music was amazing, I don’t know how they could just chill there, but don’t get me wrong I wasn’t jumping around, I tried to keep up that luxury, glamorous facade, same as everyone 😀
Stayin alive at Dubai
You can’t walk there to the downtown Dubai; there are only cars and buildings, no plants, no life. We had amazing opportunity to go outside of Dubai, and guys, THERE WAS LIFE!! There were also people, but we chose to stay in our car and look at them , just imagine seeing a white European in place, where every woman is wearing a headscarf or a hijab, too much attention, but if you want to feel it the local vibe, go to a farmers market and you will get a feel of how crowded and how none luxury it was.
These were the highlights from my Dubai Trip, I feel really blessed and thankful for everything I experienced there. And I am so happy for new friends, stronger friendships with old ones, amazing experiences and great lessons!
