Al Wadi Natural Reserve
This world won’t let you find peace, bro? — a lot of people have mouthed these words ever since I knew to tie my shoe laces! But I bet they haven’t strolled their footsteps at Al Wadi natural reserve in Dubai, else they would have sued themselves for issuing such a statement.
The idea to lug away from all the responsibilities and meet Al Wadi was inspired by Alice Smith! During the whole journey, the driver might picture me as a mental rehabilitation patient from Dubai’s asylum, especially each time when my singing had reached octaves! Couldn’t stop but croon:
Now I’m writing you a letter
And I’m making it long
Now I’m breathing and I’m bleeding
And the pages are torn
Now I’m writing you to tell you
I may go missing and lost
The sand covers my face
The sand covers my face (covers my face)
The sand covers my face (covers my face)
(Covers my face)
My mama said
“Life is for living
If you ain’t happy, honey
Go out and reinvent yourself”
The desert is good
The desert is dark
I’ve got to go away
Said I’m going away
So after popping off and witnessing Al Wadi, The feeling of being close from the material I am made from — the sand— mounted within me. I remember sticking my eyes at the rolling sand dunes which played with my eyeballs by flying to another area. I carefully listened to a message of a muttering wind which whispered from the other directional wind to remain out of its domain. If the latter won’t obey, then be ready to squeeze your eyes guys, as thick, hazy and angry breeze may try to blow sand into your eyes! This place has full party scene on even if no friend is in your luggage, as the free- roaming wildlife acts as your boredom eaters. Rugged mountain topography of Al Wadi Dubai is waiting since years to get stored in the eyes of your camera. If you really have the soul pushing you for traveling, then you just need a camera as your passport. Who won’t want to hit the 5000-year-old Dubai’s desert and bless it with birthday wishes? A desert which has kept the culture and tradition of Dubai alive with it.
- This enormous area of Dubai will excite your senses, as there are nature-friendly activities which will keep you on the seventh sky.
Lets hit the target
Ever wanted to smack down someone’s face till the veins pop painting the face red? Whether he is your boss or any enemy? If you possess this long- penned wish get ready to drain it now, as archery activity will extinguish that burning fire. How so — well assume the target to be your enemy and let his face flow through your vision. Next, transform into Legolas from the Lord of Rings or Katniss Everdeen from the Hunger Games — in order to actually hit the target! You can wish the sun to witness your victory or moon, as these archery sessions are available day and night.
What the fish?
If you are at Al-Wadi, and if not yet went fishing … then I will mouth what the fish! You can’t miss fishing. If you have pictured crystal lakes flowing then shush the idea, as here lays a water hole that offers a perfect spot to kidnap fish.
Falconry — a soul with tapered and thin wings is UAE’S national bird, which gives competition to lightening in speed. But here they won’t flip directions like usual. You won’t have more holes than a swiss cheese in handling these birdies, as in seconds the best instructors will help you tame them. Your gaze is also likely to slide over sharp-eyed eagles, hooked beak owls, and broad-winged hawks!
Over 30 horse and more than 12 camels reside in this area of Dubai. Sweeping past through the stables you can choose your tour companion. As a courtesy let me remind you: your horses are only brave as you are — else you always have an option of pony ride! Peeps if you don’t have the slightest knowledge of riding then at the drop of hat take lessons from riders present there — save swag for later!
Camel — the new posers
If horses haunt then silent camels are the best thing since sliced bread for you. Hop it on and float your gaze across the sunset. I made my camel to wander across the sand dunes so could earn a proper tour of Arabian Desert. Allow me to let the cat out of the bag, these camels love to photo bomb your pictures. Once when I had to click the sunset, camel barged in and didn’t even signal a sorry after damaging the photograph — posers!
Time for making a long story short, whether you are under the spotlight of night stars or beneath the spark of scorching sun — this place of Dubai will never fail to disarm you. As it had stormed my mind with a new array of ever-cherishing memories. You have known my experience, now bottle points at you. Goodbye for now!
