HEY, REMEMBER THAT TIME I WENT TO OMAN?...



No, of course you don't, because I barely mentioned it here! I always intended to write about my trip to the Musandam Peninsula, which is cut off from the rest of Oman by the United Arab Emirates. (Muscat, across on the other side of Oman has an international airport and is the place holidaymakers usually visit.) But Musandam had such a profound effect on me that I couldn't quite summon the right words to describe it. I would have just written a post that said, "In awe." Well, now I've rectified that and you can read my piece over on Fathom - a most excellent new travel site founded by the former executive editor and senior editor of DailyCandy.com (currently in beta) that I'm happy to be a contributor of.


Read my article here. There's also a questionnaire with me about travel here.

*And thank you to Lauren for doing the magical connecting thingummy that she does so well.

Rendez-vous in Oman said...

Oman is a really nice place. I enjoyed to live there few years ago. Beautiful deserts, nice beaches... I wish to go back one day (cross fingers) to visit Musadam ;)
