In the Deserts of the Emirates (UAE)
German Version - please click
During one of the many trips to Abu Dhabi I got an invitation from Gerhard
to a desert trip - a real alternative to our fishing trips. As expected not
everything happened as planned - Gerhard is "good in arranging things". I
am not telling more now, just enjoy the pictures which also contain some
On the way from Abu Dhabi into the desert we passed by the home of Sheikh
Hamdhan, a genious engineer who constructed the big world shaped trailer
and the oversized Dodge. In a pyramid type buidling he displays his vehicles.
In the past HH (His Highness - this is how you address Sheikhs properly)
used to travel in the deserts with his dodge and the trailer which served
as a mobile home. By the way these huge vehicles are mentioned in the Guiness Book of Records.
Gerhard´s dog Zensi has the size of a tire valve as you can see.
Even in the desert Gerhard takes good care of his guests. You see me here with a water bottle in camouflage.
It has been fun to go up and down the sand dunes with the 4-wheel drive.
Little get together in the desert - thanks friends, for your help.
Gerhard, don´t worry, I am not going to tell anyone . . . . . . .
