After 1000 miles of desert trekking, Alastair Humphreys and myself have made it safely to the ludicrously glitzy, vertical city of Dubai. We emerged from the desert to finish at the top of the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world - a suitable antithesis to the rest of our journey.
Inevitably we are exhausted, but overall feeling rather good. Pulling a 250kg cart through searing desert heat for weeks on end without a break may not sound like a lot of fun, and in fact, it wasn't. But it was certainly rewarding, and gave us access to some of the most beautiful and desolate landscapes I've ever seen. I cannot imagine a better use of two months of my life.
Once we've eaten, drunk and rested to excess, I'll write up some more info and stories from our journey. Our main goal for this trek, aside from exploring the desert, was to shoot a film. We'll both be working hard on putting that together at the start of next year.
Meanwhile - Happy Christmas from Dubai!
