Hello there

Welcome to my blog. I blog about my community, my passion, work, food, travel. I hope you enjoy the posts. Let me know if you do.

Off the beaten path in #Dubai

Off the beaten path in #Dubai

Desert ConservationSo my favourite Frying Pan Adventures has spun off its Unseen Trails into a new segment to expand and add to its repertoire of its exploration of the parts of Dubai that are yet "unseen" at least not by a lot of us and definitely not by a lot of the tourists that flock to Dubai. I have done several tours and blogged about them, but I have yet to try their Unseen Trails which they have been introducing for some time now. Unseen Trails are collaborative guided tours by Gulf Photo Plus and Frying Pan Adventures. From visiting their site (I have yet to experience these) these are visually stunning because the photographers from Gulf Photo Plus are on hand to share their tips and, according to their promise, you don't have to be a professional photographer or have a camera - you can use your phone too.

Here are some of the new trails that caught my eye.

Dubai Desert Conservation: This one is the one I fancy most. I love the desert and would love to catch a glimpse of the flora and fauna in their natural habitat including the magnificent falcon and oryx.

Naif by Night: Not an area that I would normally go to (not enough parking) but the colours and experience of its night life and the food really tempts me. Especially with the Ahmed sisters - they draw you in.

Who am I kidding, I want to do all of them (except for the Pokemon Go - still can't get my head around that game. You can get details including booking them on their new site www.unseentrails. com.
