Since I haven't Got News About Tom...CAMELS!

They are so weird! If you ever get the change to ride one, you really should, it's so strange!
The one's we rode were really sweet and they don't smell as bad as I thought they might. They walking moving both left legs or both right legs at the same time, so they feel very different from a horse. They also hate ants. When we were riding on a dirt road, you could see little lines of ants going across and the camels would stomp on them. Priceless. I hate ants as well so it was hilarious to me. Ruby was the camel I rode and has the same name as a hamster I had when I was eight.

Not a very attractive photo of me and Ruby isn't looking at the camera. The one in front of me is Dock and my sister is riding him.
Not sure what the name of my parents camel was.
You can kind of see a couple of the kangaroo's here, but the other pictures are better.
<-----Wild Red Kangaroos!
<-----More Kangaroos!

They race camels here too! Didn't actually see any races but there was lots of postcards with camels being raced.


  1. I was reading the description of their walk and thinking, "So they move like my pacers." LOL. I'm jealous!

  2. How cool you got to camel ride - looks like fun. love that they stomp ants.. too funny Was it comfortable?

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and following :)

  3. Haha it was comfy for the most part, after a while my legs got a bit sore, but that might because I'm used to a differnet saddle =P
