Why Dubai you ask?
Well, even though it’s been on my “short list” for awhile in terms of travel, I’m actually going to see this guy to my left. Yep, that crazy skydiving fool is my brother. And he’s got himself a gig at SkyDive Dubai. So for now, he lives there.
Of course, he’s just part of the equation. i also have a niece, nephew and sis-in-law that go along with him. And on most days, we like them better
Anyway, I’m off and can’t wait.
I have no idea what to expect. But, I do know I’ve travelled enough not to believe what the media says about other countries. For instance, I doubt I will become someone’s 5th wife on this trip even though I’m blond and possibly a commodity.
I also know this. I will not be chewing gum or falling asleep on the monorail because it has been confirmed that those actions result in fines. And possible imprisonment (ok, that part is not actually verified but it sounds good). And if you don’t believe that although I talk a big game but am actually scared to death of law enforcement you can refer to my time with the Hong Kong security guy.
So, my plans are (as always) to look for adventure. I will be going skydiving, sand surfing and dune bashing (even though I have no idea what dune bashing is). Right now, I’m not sure if I will be punching the sand dunes or sitting around making fun of them.
Either way, I’m IN.
