Arabian baths

The elements play a big part in riding a motorbike. Temperature changes are magnified to the extent that you feel pockets of warm and cool air, particularly in and around the mountains. Smells can be a pleasant discovery whilst driving through towns processing olives for oil. The arab baths offered our bodies the chance to recuperate in hot and cold plunge pools, before a well oiled massage. Definitely a high point of the trip so far.
