When I think of royalty, the image of a lazy and blasé life of luxury is what immediately strikes me. But turns out some members of the royal elite are going out and making the bloody most of the riches they were born into.

Meet Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum, son of the Prime Minister of UAE and the monarch of Dubai. His is a truly, ridiculously unreal life. He's a die-hard adventure enthusiast with all the world's resources at his feet. Hamdan has given the world a true spectacle in every sense of the word - his life.

Hamdan is not only an award-winning horseback rider who has bagged a gold medal at the Asian Olympic games, but he's also jumped off buildings, gone deep sea diving, played with lions and has lived to tell the tale.

May I point out that all the envy you're feeling right now has very little to do with just how rich this man is! It might be pretty evident by now that Sheikh Hamdan's life is basically one long Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara style mega-adventure.

Jiyo, Hamdan.
