Oman...again and again

Oman is called an 'oasis of tolerance' in the Middle East, and it is a very special country indeed. The Omani people pride themselves on being friendly and accepting of everyone. For me, it is a country I want to visit over and over again as it is stunningly beautiful. We spent this time around doing lots of lounging by the pool or on the lazy river at the hotel, as well as a trip to the souq and a dolphin cruise.

The most special part of the trip for all of us was visiting the Grand Mosque. All dappled light and shadows and curves, it is an architectural beauty.

Next on the Oman list is a trip into the mountains for some hiking. I have a feeling this will be our go-to country in the Middle East.
