Here are the TOP 5 things that almost happened in my time in Dubai (both good and bad).
𝟭. 𝗔𝘂𝘁𝗼𝗺𝗼𝗯𝗶𝗹𝗲 𝗮𝗰𝗰𝗶𝗱𝗲𝗻𝘁.
The day after the fair ended, I was commuting in a taxi to Dubai Arabian Horse Stud and we just about had a sideways collision with a bus at 100km/h because the taxi driver failed to stop for a red light. Had this happened, the second half of the trip would have ended much differently. Thank god this did not happen and I was able to safely arrive at Dubai Stud that morning but it gave a real scare and it was an absolutely horrific experience making it there.
𝟮. 𝗣𝗼𝗹𝗼𝗰𝗿𝗼𝘀𝘀𝗲 𝗮𝘁 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗗𝘂𝗯𝗮𝗶 𝗖𝗵𝗮𝗹𝗹𝗲𝗻𝗴𝗲 𝗖𝘂𝗽 𝗙𝗶𝗻𝗮𝗹.
The only reason this did not happen is because this event was on the day before the Dubai World Cup and I was busy preparing for the races, otherwise this for sure would have happened.
𝟯. 𝗭𝗶𝗽𝗹𝗶𝗻𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗶𝗻 𝗗𝘂𝗯𝗮𝗶 𝗠𝗮𝗿𝗶𝗻𝗮.
This is the worlds longest urban zipline, you come down from 170 meters and hit a top speed of 60km/h. This is not a cheap activity to do but I received a great offer and I very much considered it over the Burj Kalifa but I did not go through with it simply because my back started acting up shortly after I arrived in Dubai and it was not worth the risk of aggravating it, otherwise I probably would have done it for the thrill. I am terrified of heights but I have ziplined before and really enjoyed it, though nothing even close to the magnitude that the Dubai Marina zipline offers.
𝟰. 𝗧𝗮𝗰𝗸 𝘀𝘁𝗼𝗿𝗲 𝘁𝗼𝘂𝗿.
I showed you all what many barns in Dubai look and feel like, I then wanted to show what a tack store in Dubai looks like and their line of products. There are not very many tack stores in Dubai but I wanted to show this one with a tour because they have a very extensive and different product catalog when it comes to horse tack. It's also two floors and it lights up at night.
𝟱. 𝗦𝗵𝗼𝘄 𝗗𝗿𝗲𝘀𝘀𝗮𝗴𝗲 𝗮𝘁 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗘𝗺𝗶𝗿𝗮𝘁𝗲𝘀 𝗘𝗾𝘂𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗿𝗶𝗮𝗻 𝗖𝗲𝗻𝘁𝗿𝗲.
Though I have taken pictures of what you would find in a dressage show, I have yet to photograph one. I couldn't swing this one because it came in really late and I had already made plans for other things, otherwise this was kept as part of the Plan B.
