My new experience on this trip is Kayaking ! as all of you know how much I try my best that on each trip I try a new adventure or learn an new thing ..its the way a trip should be ! you're getting away right ! so you need something new !! try something new ! fail or succeed doesn't matter ! you got to explore yourself :D 3aadi ana da3amt chum shyara bil maay :P so its ok ;)

Desert Islands Resort and Spa by Anantara in Abu Dhabi has a wide range of activities to do while you are staying with them ! you will never get bored !! actually they will help you plan your stay and activities they were so helpful with me ! I just love their unique service !! been to alot of resorts but this one has something that captures my heart :) 
 It was really really hard to choose from the activity list ! daaymaaan abi kil sha o abi agaarib kil shay wla abi shay e6ooofni asa long as I am there in the right moment and right place ! but I had to choose because I was on a short stay :( 7asafa

first let me take alook at their activities : 

1- Water Activities : kayaking- snorkeling  
2- Land Activities  :  Archery - Mountain biking - Nature and wildlife ride -Nature and wildlife walks
3-Heritage activities: Archeological site tour

For me I went with Kayaking and the nature and wildlife ride which I will post about later which will be beyond your expectations !! fag'aa leqait roo7i waqfa 3la kersii jeep el safara o ajakchek bil camera min el tantaa fooq :P yallah that excited you will get ! just keep tracking the posts coming up ! you don't want to miss one adventure of that resort ;) trust me for the people who got a taste when they travel ;)

So why Kayaking ? as I said I wanted to try something new although I loooooooooooove snorkeling ALOT ! but thought hey AMA Traveler you need shay ydeeeed !! Kayak ! my Kayak activity was on my day of arrival at 5:00 PM i should be in the lobby for my pick up ride ! yep the Island is big it takes like 10 minute to reach the Kayak area by ride ! The Lovely Ms. Sonica from South Africa my Kayak trainer !!! why My akayk trainer ! because it was only me on that activity that day !! two cute couples from Switzerland were riding with us for the drop off for the wildlife drive !

the BIG thing that I missed is not having a waterproof camera !!!! 7asaafaa :( I should get me one !!! because as you see couldn't take my camera with me on the Kayak ! So what do you need other than the water proof camera ? sun glasses - towel in case you need it - hat - and yeah wear a swim suit ! because you will get wet when you are Kayaking :P tarajaakh bn6looniii hahahaha but it was FUN !!
