One of the surprising adventures I've experienced in Dubai is the Hatta Mountain Safari tour. We kept postponing this trip due to the (un)availability of our schedules.

Hi everyone! I haven’t been able to update this site as often as at all as I’ve been busy living a life in the desert. I’ve been based in Dubai since last year and have been adjusting to the new environment ever since. Might I say it wasn’t that hard nor was it easy, but [...]
