But where can you experience something like that in real life? Maybe check out the North Indian desert, which I had a chance to do in 2013. Is it expensive? Don’t make me laugh. I found a guide who was willing to take me on a week-long camel safari for only 300 bucks. Adventure and the experience of a lifetime for $300—that’s unbeatable.
You get the desert, you get the funky-looking camels, and you get Pakistani border guards pointing their guns at you when you take pictures of them. It’s like the movie Mad Max had sex with Indiana Jones and gave birth to what the North Indian desert is – without English subtitles, not as high-budget, and you don’t get to hang out with Tom Hardy and that super-cool chick who played Furiosa. I wish that were the case. It wasn’t.
