Dubai desert

Dubai Desert, not far from Oman.

On Friday November 11th 2016, I went with a 4x4 and a private driver into the desert about an hour drive from Dubai.

As this was not my first time, I knew that on Friday afternoon, hundreds of 4x4's - filled with tourists - get together for a desert safari.

Fortunately (I hate mass tourism) the endless line of white cars break up in smaller groups to find their own way in the desert while bashing the sand dunes.

After a couple of minutes, you don't see the other cars anymore and you feel alone in this enormous sand pit to enjoy the silence and the sunset.

If you ever have the chance, go for it!
