Saudi Arabia and Dubai
Dubai looks really nice, they have 7* hotels there don't they? Did you see that hotel that's built on sand, it's quite a weird looking one - it looks a bit like a sail of a wind-surfer.

Yeah, that's the 7-star hotel which is on a bridge over the sea. It has all these mercedes and BMW cars around it. There's a hotel near it which is pretty amazing too, especially at night. We took a little tour around in a little buggy too, even though technically we wouldn't be allowed to. Btw, if anyone goes to Dubai, they HAVE to go on the desert safari!

They have practically no road laws in Dubai/Saudi Arabia. I've seen somre really nice cars on TV when they've done pieces there, and they drive down the road on 2 wheels. They also meet up a lot in the desert and practise their driving skills. I have to live there, it seems a nice place and the pay isn't bad at all.

Saudi Arabia is the king of road ragers, and in Dubai, they just ignore any speed limits. We saw a guy on a scooter wearing a balaclava, and with his feet off the pedals; real; dangerous!

How is that dangerous, if he was on a scooter. You only need your hands to ride it and don't use your feet.

Did you go up the sand dunes and stuff? That was amazing, probably better than a rollercoaster. My little brother absolutley loved it, cauing the driver to show off a bit, and then ended up getting stuck between 2 sand dunes. 2 other drivers came to help, and the tow rope broke 3 times. And then some locals came, and we were out in no time!

Apparently the pay is sooo good/and the jobs so easy that you can just like skive laods of work to play computer games at the local games arcade. My kind of life.

I haven't actually been there, i've only seen pieces on the TV on holiday and motoring programmes

I have been on a ride on a jeep in a diferent desert before, it was bumpy and you could quite easily hit your head on the roof.

We had seatbelts and it was pretty bumpy!

No seatbelts for us, it was a long wheelbase defender with some benches in the back and a little canopy to shield us from the sun. Very bumpy, and got quite dirty as well, but it was all good fun.
