I was super stoked about staying in the middle of the desert (check out my Qasr review here!) and couldn’t wait to do check out all that sand. While we didn’t actually get down to actual dune bashing (taking a 4-wheel drive and driving through the sand and dunes), we had sand dunes right at our front doorstep and I spent some mornings and evenings trekking them.
Walking in sand is hard! This desert sand is super-fine like powder and gets everywhere. I was washing sand out of my ears and clothes for days after… At least there wasn’t any water to make it stick to you uncomfortably. Seriously, the landscape is unreal, friends can’t believe that these pictures are real but I assure you I only did minimal tweaking to the pix. Enjoy the pix below, stay tuned for more trip journals and photos! =)
I spent a lot of time just wandering the dunes on my own, catching up on journalling and taking fun pix…
When the others finally deigned to come outside, we troop off once again into the sand dunes and pick new ones to scale. What we get up to in the desert… well you’ll see!
And after all that sand, it was really nice to take a dip in the heated pool and knock back a nice bottle of beer, or glass of wine… Three whole days of decadence with Sun, Sand and (sorta) Sea! =)
