A few months ago, after relocating to Qatar, I had the opportunity to go to Oman. Unlike Qatar, the vegetation is much more lush (in desert terms) and I was truly surprised by the beauty of this country. I spent most of my days in Muscat but took a road trip with friends to the mountains which was absolutely beautiful. We drove all the way to the Mazara dam. Totally worth it! Must see’s: Sultan Qaboos Mosque, Al Mutrah Souq, Royal Opera House Muscat.
