On this, the 7th day of August, I report another NDB (never done before): I learned how to snowboard. I didn’t even know I really wanted to! Cross that off the bucket list.
I did it in the desert city of Dubai, UAE, at the Mall of the Emirates, about two hours from where I live. There is an indoor ski, zip-line and snowboard “mountain” where you pay, collect your ski suit and blades of choice and escalate up to the snow-covered decline structure that is Ski Dubai. There are also toboggan races, penguins, sleds, and hamster balls. www.skidxb.com
Inspired to make this last-of-summer month FUN and exciting, I agreed to this activity with my daughter, whom I took skiing when she was three years old. Now 18 years old, she proved herself a snowboarder and a FUN-seeker.
Are you making the most out of the month? Check off those bucket list items and NDBs. You’ll feel empowered, I promise.
