Once upon a time (no, actually this is a true story for once) I was stuck in Dubai for about 12 hours. I was bored.
Thankfully it’s not a problem I encounter particularly often, but supposing I did, now I know where I’d go. Wadi Adventure, a one stop shop for surfing, kayaking and rafting in the middle of the desert!
It solves being bored and the bit of surfing that I make look really difficult; paddling out. You just get out and walk back to the start.
