Oman attractions: Which are your favorites?! Even if you haven’t visited this off-the-beaten-path Middle Eastern gem, don’t fret.

Then, after going through the photos and names, for YOU to pick the ones you would like me to talk about in coming posts!

    I love Oman! I’ve been twice – three times if you count just sleeping in the lounge at the airport one night;) and am definitely going back again soon. It really is an undiscovered paradise. I’m writing a blog post about it myself tomorrow!
