After a fun friday, we decided to spend our saturday and sunday back to basic: camping in Fujairah! Our last camping trip in Oman was a big disaster (camping stuff got stolen en we wrecked our (borrowed!) car..). Truth be told we were a bit scared, but fortunately this trip turned out to be great! It will be the first of many I hope! :)
Saturdaymorning we woke up way to late, packed our bags and drove to Fujairah. It was a great drive, with camels, blue skies, lots of music and of course: mountains! Then, we drove up the mountains near a little town called Tawian. We had planned our route with the Explorer and it turned out great! After a beautiful drive we entered a wadi with some perfect camping spots. We set up camp en made a little hike through the wadi. (We planned on making a big hike, but we were pretty lazy, so it turned out to be a little hike ;)).
After the hike: BBQ time! Frank’s favourite! We made some lovely burgers and had a great time, just the two of us in the middle of nowhere. Next time we do need to bring some marshmallows though…;) Then came the dark dark night with thousands of stars! Wow..that’s something you just don’t see in Dubai, so cool! I even saw a falling star! :D We both slept like babies that night, because it was so incredibly silent around us (there was some weird “KaKa” animal sound..still don’t know what it was ;)).
Next morning we were woken by a goat and the sunshine peaking in our little tent. We had some breakfast together with a million flies and went on to Dibba and Snoopy Island. There put on our snorkelling gear and went out to spot some sharks and turtles. Unfortunately we didn’t see either, but we did see many other fish in all sorts of shapes and colours!
It was a great trip :) Thanks Frankie! Now I need to get ready for my trip to Sweden and Holland! :D Yippie!
