Oman – Camel

Camel, Oman
Camel, Oman

Somehow, I think that there have to be camels in Arabic countries. I guess, it’s not always true, but works in many cases. 🙂 And Oman wasn’t exceptional. 🙂

I did a camel riding a few times in my life (but not in Oman). And honestly, I didn’t like it so much. The worst for me, is the moment when the camel wants to stand up or sit down. What’s your impression? Have you tried it?

Kraje arabskie kojarzą mi się z wielbłądami. I pewnie nie w każdym kraju arabskim są wielbłądy, to jednak w większości przypadków moje skojarzenie działa poprawnie. I Oman nie jest wyjątkiem. 🙂

Co do wielbłądów, mieliście okazję przejechać się kiedyś na jego grzbiecie? Z takiej możliwości skorzystałam w kilku krajach (ale nie w Omanie) i nie mogę powiedzieć, że to mój ulubiony “środek transportu”. Zawsze źle wspominam moment gdy wielbłąd wstaje lub siada – to taki szalony, nieprzewidywalny ruch. 😉

  1. Jeszcze nie miałem okazji pojeździć. Myślę że, był by z tym problem. Zwierzęta za mną raczej nie przepadaja. Z tego co słyszałem wielbłądy to wyjątkowo uparte i złosliwe stwory.

    1. chyba największe wrażenie (jeździeckie 😉 ) dotychczas zrobiły na mnie słonie

    1. I answered in previous comments, but in Polish, that elephants are my favourite, so far 🙂

  2. Oh this photo made me smile so hard 😀 Extra cute!!! I have not tried riding a camel 🙂

    1. I’m happy to hear it! 🙂
      Maybe you can try one day, however, I recommend elephants the most 🙂

      1. I have heard really bad stories about how elephants are treated in order to become ¨means of transportation¨ (especially in Thailand). I have not traveled to such countries yet but I am really curious how you experienced that while you were there.

        1. I have good memories from Sri Lanka, but indeed, elephants are often not treated well, and in Thailand there are many bad places, but there are also ones where animals are fine.
          I guess you heard about tiger temple in Thailand? I didn’t go there, because I don’t like this idea. I was happy that it was closed recently!

          1. I had heard that elephant riding is not good idea in general but especially Thailand. They were not referring to specific attractions but I was not aware of tiger temple.

          2. There are also sanctuaries, so you can work as a volunteer with elephants, that’s probably the best option.

  3. Magnifique photo bien amusante. Je ne suis jamais montée sur un chameau et je crois que j’aurais peur. Bravo à vous 🙂
    Bon dimanche

  4. Such a comical photo! Yes, in Egypt I tried riding a camel. The worst part was when it decided to pick a fight with another camel and then run away, with me on his back. 😯

  5. I am thinking camel riding makes horse riding look very tame. I have never bee non a camel, which is surely something I shall have to rectify! That photo is fantastic. I think i can feel the camel’s hot breath through my computer screen!

  6. Great close-up! Camels are funny creatures and not my favourite, either. I rode one in the Sahara, in Tunisia and agree that when they’re getting up or down is a bit hair-raising. I’m always wary of those big teeth, too! 😀

    1. Thank you! 🙂
      I’m glad to hear so many people agree with our impressions 🙂

  7. l’immagine è straordinaria!
    non mi piace cavalcare nessun tipo di animali, mi sembra di esercitare una specie di prepotenza, li preferisco liberi

  8. Cudne zdjęcie, aż mam ochotę go pocałować w ten pyszczek 😉
    Na wielbłądzie jechałam raz i więcej nie skorzystałam z tej wątpliwej przyjemności 😉

    1. hihi 🙂
      dzięki za informacje – kolejna osoba potwierdza moje wrażenia…

  9. I have had two camel riding experiences. One was fun and delightful. It was just over an hour ride around Aires Rock in Australia. We mounted the camel before dawn and getting up was for me a very fun experience. The other was a 5 minute ride in Egypt to get a picture in front of the pyramids. We nearly fell off when this camel got up and the ride was very bumpy as he was walking on sand and sank 6 inches with every foot on every step. Both are terrific memories.

    1. I have the impression that many people don’t connect camels with Australia, what do you think?
