Have you ever been totally disappointed by something you were really, really excited about?
After fawning over photos I romanticized how amazing a camel safari through the desert would be. About 45 minutes in my butt kinda hurt and my camel had some indigestion issues and frankly, was a jerk and bit all the other camels. As we arrived to our tents for the night but first thought was “it didn’t look like this in those pictures I saw”.
It really took something to fight those expectations. In reality, I was riding a frickin camel and having a great time laughing at how ridiculous my camel was. And those accommodations... did I really need a fancy tent with lanterns and beautiful decor? Wasn’t the whole point experiencing the desert anyway and not staying in a fancy hotel?
So, was the Sahara everything I thought it would be? No. Was it an absolute once in a lifetime experience? Absolutely! And am I missing out on that fancy hotel... not even the slightest. at Sahara desert Merzouga
