We took guests on a holiday in Oman into a world full of beautiful formations that can excite the imagination with design and form  – and a lot cooler than the shimmering landscape below.

Visiting an Omani Wadi

on the way to watch Omans Turtles

On the way to watch the Green Turtles in Oman we took a ferry to get into a wonderful wadi. Despite the heat the wadi was full of birdsong and greenery.

After a very good evening watching the turtles, we were thrilled the next morning to be able to see the last one return to the sea, making a nice memory of this tour in Oman .

Oman’s Three Seas

a journey

Making the most of Oman’s coast Ernest Meili took a journey down the 1700kms or so of Oman’s coastline. He talked about his experience, in one of the best talks held by the ESO.

I really look forward to doing the same journey with Nobel Caledonia on their Oman Cruise and hope my talks will be as interesting.
