Just now I realised that it has been nearly a year now since I blogged. I have been so lazy and busy off-roading on weekend and really didn’t find time to blog. I feel really bad that one year has fully gone without blogging. Inshallah I will make sure that I will start blogging regularly from now on.
This my new beast which keeps me busy during the weekend..
And now I have big second family 🙂
I hope everyone I knew had a great and wonderful year 2016 and I wish everyone a very happy and successful new year 2017..
For the past one year I really wanted to do learn and drive in the desert. Two weeks ago I found this amazing club UAEOffRoaders and every since I was so excited to take my first trip with them. Finally I took my first trip yesterday with them in Sharjah.
1) How to drive in the desert
2) How to deflate my tires to proper PSI
3) Explained different driving modes and when to use which mode for driving safely
4) How to drive up the dune and down the dune
5) Recovered my vehicle twice when I was stuck in the dune
6) Motivating and training me every step of the way
8) The most friendly, humble and fun loving enthusiasts
9) How to have fun in a safe way
Did I do crazy stuff ? – No, UAEOffRoaders made sure that we don’t perform stunts. Safety was the utmost importance. Only experienced drivers get to do the tricky dunes.
How much will I recommend my friends to be a part of this club – 100%
Is this the right way to start learning off road driving – 100%
The UAE Pioneers initiative recognising leaders of progress in the society has been launched for its second edition, ahead of the 44th National Day.
Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President and Ruler of Dubai, called on the community to nominate “creative citizens” serving their country through their ideas and visions.
“This initiative is an effort to thank and honour these creative citizens who have left their imprints in the UAE’s progressive march, and their contributions will always be appreciated by the people of this country,” said Sheikh Mohammed.
Forty-three people were honoured last year, including the first doctor, inventor, professor, broadcaster, policewoman and other personalities, he said.
“By honouring the pioneers, we want to inspire in every person in the UAE the quest to attain the first position in their field of work and specialisation.
“We want to immortalise their names in history just as they have immortalised the name of the UAE through their work.”
The initiative is part of the National Day celebrations on December 2. Emiratis can nominate themselves or others as pioneers in areas including education, health, the economy, military, sport and innovation.
The Pamban Bridge ( Tamil: பாம்பன் பாலம்), is a cantilever bridge on the Palk Strait which connects the town of Rameswaram on Pamban Island to mainland India. The bridge refers to both the road bridge and the cantilever railway bridge, though primarily it means the latter. Opened in 1914, it was India’s first sea bridge, and was the longest sea bridge in India till 2010. The rail bridge is for the most part, a conventional bridge resting on concrete piers, but has a double leaf bascule section midway, which can be raised to let ships and barges pass through. On 24 February 2014, the Pamban Bridge marked its 100th anniversary. – Pamban Bridge – Wikipedia
