I did this when I went on my first holiday abroad at the age of 14 to Fuerteventura. We sat on the camel in twos on seats which went over the camel's back and we sat either side of it.

I went on the camel with my Aunty but because of the weight difference they had to tie a concrete block to my side. The seats had a bit of a see saw motion and I was worried it was going to over balance!

It was fine going along the beach but what we didn't realise was they were then going to take us up a mountain! I was pretty scared as my side was hanging over the edge so whilst looking down and with the swinging movement I thought I was going to fall down it!

Even though this was 10 years ago I randomly remember that the camel was called Katja.

I would love to ride a camel again especially to go to the pyramids but this time would prefer to sit on one's back on my own rather than strapped more to the side!

13th January 2014 - had another go at a camel ride when we visited the Bedouin tribe on our desert safari in Egypt. This time I was sat on top of the camel on my own with a normal saddle. The experience was 100 times better and I absolutely loved it!

The man in the photo is not my husband but another man on the same trip but when a boy took the photo for me he thought we were together so was a little bit awkward :)
