Haven't done one of those last minute holiday dashes in a long while. Think the last one was Thailand for a long weekend during March 2011? So today made plans for visiting our neighbouring country, Oman for a last minute dash long weekend. We are getting two days holiday on Sunday and Monday (UAE anniversary), so thought to get away from all of the celebrations in the UAE for a nice drive to Muscat in Oman and some recreation. Oman is one of the most beautiful countries in the Middle East, particularly the coastal areas on the Gulf of Oman. The seascapes are pretty awesome. I've been to Muscat many times before, however my last visit has been in 2006. So long overdue for a visit.
Anyway, hope to be taking some photos this time round, as have never taken photos on my trips to Oman before. So much to do before I take off on early morning Friday (Friday is a Sunday in the UAE), getting quite excited though, great idea!
