The Sultanate of Oman is a Middle Eastern country on the southeastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula. It borders the United Arab Emirates in the northwest, Saudi Arabia in the west, and Yemen in the southwest. It’s a beautiful country with a diverse landscape and a culturally rich heritage dating back over 106,000 years.

I took a trip there to visit an Omani friend of mine named Abdullah, who I met on a previous visit during a hike through the Wadi Shab gorge. Abdullah generously offered to act as my unofficial tour guide this trip, so I took him up on the offer and we traveled 2 hours south of Muscat to his hometown village of Tiwi. From there we camped out on the mountainside, explored sink holes, hiked and swam through Wadi Tiwi, played soccer on the coast, and drank an ocean’s worth of Omani tea.
