DRIVE DESCRIPTION

14th Feb - Valentines day  also called Saint Valentine's Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine  is celebrated annually on February 14 . It originated as a Christian feast day honouring a martyr named Valentine and through later folk traditions, it has also become a significant cultural, religious and commercial celebration of romance and love in many regions of the world. The day became associated with romantic love in the 14th and 15th centuries when notions of courtly love flourished, apparently by association with the "lovebirds" of early spring. In 18th-century England, it grew into an occasion for couples to express their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards (known as "valentines"). Valentine's Day symbols that are used today include the heart-shaped outline, doves, and the figure of the winged Cupid.

What better than starting the day, with your partner on this Couples only Drive. This drive is a highly likely chance to have your partner's permission renewed for a reasonable period of weekend desert drives  :D - thanks to you - that  your partner will be happy to start the day with you, while moving swiftly through Lisaili dunes, with a romantic view of those Hot air balloons in sight and a beautiful sunrise.

Please note : This will be strictly a on time start  and on time end - The idea is more to gather as a group, have a relaxed drive, take a break for coffee/muffins, have some photos clicked and then head back to start point to be able to exit on time.  

Dress code : Not mandatory but encouraged - Red + Black.

This is probably the oldest surviving Valentine’s letter in the English language. It was written by Margery Brews to her fiancé John Paston in February 1477

Dear @Prithvi Raj @Frederic118

First of all - Thank you for showing interest on this drive, which like you - Even I was looking forward to ! However, as the Minimum no. of cars that we aim is 3 from safety perspective and hence I am with no alternative left with no choice but to cancel this drive and perhaps plan soon for some-other theme drive making it couples drive ! 

Can I please request you to acknowledge this message- The Drive tomorrow is cancelled and I hope your other plans are executed as planned for this day .
