Across the desert landscape we drive, with around us nothing but sand and rock formations in fifty shades of brown. The sultanate of Oman offers wild nature and an authentic Arab atmosphere.

Oman –  In the rearview mirror I see the Sultan Quaboes Mosque, one of the largest mosques in the world, getting smaller and smaller. We leave the capital Muscat behind us and continue on, into the untouched interior. Across the desert landscape we drive, with around us nothing but sand and rock formations in fifty shades of brown.

Brown yellowish mountains rise up from the dessert. Then all of a sudden a pond creating live around. The sultanate of Oman is fantastic for the adventurous traveler. No mass tourism, but overwhelming landscapes and a authentic Arabic culture.
