Skydive Dubai

Arrived to Dubai from Cairo on March 4th 2017. As I had a couple of days of work in Dubai and was lucky that a spot opened up, decided to take the opportunity and book a tandem sky dive experience.

Long story short, they fly you up to 4 km altitude, strap a professional to your harness and you jump out of a plane carrying the guy with the parachute on your back.

I must say it is a lifetime experience, for me it was feeling tension up until the moment I let go of everything and jumped. Video provided.. 🙂

Falling down towards the ground at 200 kph one quickly figures out how all the civilian passenger jets create a false sense of security flying inside them while they keep you nice and leveled 30 000 ft in the air.

The city of course looks amazing from the sky. Much better than from the Burj Khalifa. Too bad it lasts only for a couple of minutes. Alas, the plan is to do it again once.

Date of the jump was March 9th, 2017.

After a couple of days in Dubai, on March 10th went cracking forward to my favorite place to save some money, lovely Saudi Arabia.


Dubai….. Yeah Dubai. Every time you go back to that place you find roundabouts missing, new overpasses that go from somewhere to somewhere else but still above your head.

Had to go over there to get some paperwork done. In the mean time helped at the workshop, which turned out to be a not such a good idea this time, as I managed to hurt my left hand.

Funny, right? 😀

Don’t worry about it. I was lucky. It was just 5 stitches. No broken bones, no tendon damage. After four weeks, hand is as good as new.

Anyway, I’m babbling. Dubai was nice, went to some cool places like TT Custom Choppers




But, I’m finally on a job to Kuwait. Haven’t been here in about two years.

The look from the window doesn’t look that bad, but it’s freaking cold and windy outside.




Not sure what happens next, as I’m still here waiting for some permissions to go into the field.

Stay tuned…
