Riding Camels in Sahara Desert ....

“What makes the desert beautiful is that somewhere it hides a well.”
Antoine de Saint-Exupery quotes (French Pilot, Writer and Author of 'The Little Prince', 1900-1944)

But to me what makes the desert beautiful is the camel ...

And to get there we need a sail boat ...

After struggling to get on ... finally!

Camels and humans ...

Say cheese!

OMG ... I am actually riding the camel on my own...-without someone holding it

Time to get down - Ugh easy ..easy ...

Finally ... down. Good camel!

Camels in Egypt originated from Sudan and they have one hump --a bit smaller compared to the ones from Gobi desert, China. (One of these days, I will take you all to ride camels in the Gobi desert but for now, let's focus on Sahara desert.)

Sahara desert is considered the world hottest desert and second largest desert next to the icy desert in Antarctica.

Hope you enjoy our journeys to the Egypt ...
the fun doesn't end here but I would try to insert other topics here and there and back to Egypt next Friday --too many places there to show you ...

Until next stop,
Journey of Life


  1. Great shots. It reminded me of that old Police song Tea in the Sahara.

  2. No fair, you get to ride camels and we are stuck here in front of computers - LOL It's nice to read about when you can't do it. Enjoying the show!

  3. Hi,

    I viewed your blog earlier today and left a comment for the blog hop. I recognize the beautiful pictures of Egypt.

    I was reading your profile and yes I believe in predestination. I think we are living now in the time and the place we are meant to be in, in order to learn what it is we have to know in this lifetime before moving on in our journey.


    1. Thank you Sunni for your visits and so happy to know you in this journey!

  4. Lovely pics. Egypt is on my places to see list. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Wow! That was another awesome journey! I went to the zoo last week and looked at the camels from afar...I guess I am intimidated by their height or something. I couldn't bring myself to get on one. I love that you are so daring! I had no idea they lay down and let you off like that. At the zoo they had a platform. The desert looks so amazing. Love the happy children around you. Thanks for taking me along with you...

    1. You are always welcome, Winnie! I am not sure how I felt the very first time I rode on the camel. It was years ago and this was the third time and somewhat I know what to expect --in fact, quite excited about it.

  6. What an adventure! Someday, I shall have to try to ride a camel;)
