Golden Sands and Golden Honey in Oman

We survived a desert storm to enjoy Omani Coffee and Honey

Arriving in one of Oman’s Deserts the golden dunes of the Wahiba Sands to set up camp we were faced with flying sand and strong winds; a normal sunset event as the weather heats up. We couldn’t really do anything till the wind had died down – and today it really didn’t want to . Eventually having stretched the time of our move into plan B – a departure to a permanent camp – we were relieved that the wind did die down – and up the tents went in the darkness. Steaks cooked and baked potatoes unwrapped and the meal was good to eat.

Our reward for all the hassle of the camp was to come. We stopped mid afternoon for a Coffee break . Here Coffee is accompanied by Honey Comb dripping with fresh Omani honey – too sweet to be good but wonderful none-the-less .
