    Meet local author Alexander McnabbAlex McnabbAlexander McNabb has been working in, living in and travelling around the Middle East for over 25 years. Formerly a journalist, editor and magazine publisher, today he spends his time advising companies on their communications strategies and he is a critically acclaimed author having published his first novel Olives - A Violent Romance to rave reviews (we've read it)

     Olives – A Violent Romance, a serious work that explores the attitudes, perceptions and conflicts of the Middle East, exposing a European sensibility to the strange and multi-layered world of life on the borders of Palestine. 

    This was followed by Beirut – An Explosive Thriller, which launched in December 2012. His third Middle East based novel, Shemlan – A Deadly Tragedy was published in 2013.

    Balloon Adventures
    Get a bird’s eye view as only a few have seen it into the heart of the untouched desert with its uninterrupted desert vistas and rolling red dunes. Rising early for a sunrise flight affords us breath taking views as we watch the sun creep over the horizon creating spectacular visual images over the dunes below.The cool and serene morning ambience adds to the experience as we float along the air currents to where ever they may take us.

    We will pick you up from one of our meeting points and transfer you out to the desert, where you'll enjoy a one hour flight floating across the dunes while the sun rises up to greet us. Once we've touched down, enjoyed some cold refreshments and you have collected your flight certificate from the pilot, we then head back into town where you will be dropped off and ready to enjoy the rest of your day. We may encounter wandering camels, spot gazelles & Oryx that roam the Conservation area, or maybe even meet up with falconers or farmers as we land, so don't forget your camera.

    Come and see us at the Big Day Out to find out more and enter to win flights for 2 passengers worth 1990AED!
