Egypt and the Camel.
I really don’t know what I was thinking riding a camel. I was feeling ambitious and “in the moment”, but it was not a fun experience for me. I also kind of feel bad for the camels, so I guess this travel moment was a fail for me, but that doesn’t mean I can’t chuckle in retrospect at how ridiculous my short lived “ride” was.
I definitely cringe at how completely unattractive these photos are (I was in the middle of the Sahara in September, living out of one carryon suitcase for 3 weeks, remember?)
The rest of the group got on their camels and had someone leading them pretty quickly, but for some reason I had no one. The camel got up and I panicked, as I saw no one to guide me. Let’s see my awkward rise from the ground…
^^ How unprofessional does that look????
Someone finally made me take my hand of the back. This poor camel, right?
Meanwhile, a lady came screaming in my direction, FALLING off her camel.
They stopped my “walk” short, and I have never been happier to touch the ground. Not everyone is made for every travel experience, right?
Take all these awkward photos in, because you won’t see this again!
with love, the girl who rides a camel like this…
I never stood a chance.
