Sand Boarding in Doha Desert, Qatar

I know…
we said we would rest on our way home… well the opportunity came up to go on a “desert safari” whilst on our stopover in Doha, so of course we took it. And wasn’t it good fun.

Firstly it was dune-bashing in the 4WD;

And then it was jumping over the edge of a sand dune;

and then the sand boards came out and off we went.

What a hoot.

And then just as we were heading back at sunset, the locals were coming in; generally using it like we do the bush. It ended up looking like Bourke St somewhat… who’d have thought!

Back to the land of Melbourne Saturday early a.m.
The end of another adventure, and of course, already planning the next!
