While sharing her experience, she wrote:-

Crashing around Carly’s apartment, trying to be silent, I left early enough to cross the dangerous bridge before rush hour and arrive at the Saudi embassy at 09:00. I’d been instructed I must cancel my incorrect visa here and reapply.

As a woman, I was shuffled to the front of the lengthy queue, and so I arrived at the window very quickly. But the man I met with dismissed me; either he didn’t want to help or saw no problem, instructing me to proceed to the border..

After a quick stop at one of Abu Dhabi’s many bottle shops and a lengthier stop at an enormous mall searching for stove fuel, I was finally on my way to the border.

The back road through an industrial, which was supposed to continue along the coast, ended at a wire fence, so I returned to the motorway. At least outside of Abu Dhabi, there are fewer dangerous exits; the shoulder is wide and smooth, and I was making good progress with just a light crosswind.

I continued on past my 100km minimum mark to a busy service station where a policeman/ security guard authorised camping at the preside of the mosque.

Realising that I shouldn’t be drinking my wine here, I found a sheltered spot over the road in the sand. Several men came over to meet me as I set up, including a pair, one of which shouted me dinner, the other who shook my hand with a note in it.

To my amazement, when I looked after they’d left, it was 1000 Dirham!!! (AU$400 / £250!!) coincidentally that covers the cost of my Hayya card and Saudi visa if all else fails..
