I’m no camel enthusiast, but I’d be lying if I say that I don’t squeal with delight every time I see one.
While at times Dubai can seem like every other city, with its tall buildings, manicured green shrubs, and big paved highways, there’s nothing like an unexpected camel sighting to remind you that you’re really in the middle of the desert.
I was on my way to a meeting this morning, admittedly in a developing area outside the city, and spotted these lovely creatures.
On a day trip to Fujairah (an emirate within the UAE), my husband and I took a wrong turn, and happened upon a plethora of camels just chilling beside the road!
We deliberately took this wrong turn again, with hopes of showing visitors our discovery, and there they were again.
Also, while these photos were from a desert safari I went on with my sister, where a camel sighting, let alone camel ride, is to be expected, they’re simply too hilarious not to share.
