✦ Khasab, Oman
Watching the rising morning sun on top of this random dune next to Highway 32 in Oman.


✦ Al – Wusta Province, Wadi Damm and Ghubrah Bowl, Oman
If you´re into camping, Oman is the place to be: dried out wadis and deserted wilderness.


✦ Highway 41, Jiddat al – Harasis and Highway 32, Huqf, Oman
Together with our rental car we pretty much drove all around the country.


✦ Nakhal Fort and Bahla Fort, Oman
Ancient forts are definitely one of Oman´s signature features.


✦ Ras al – Jinz Turtle Reserve, Oman
On this trip we finally fulfilled our dream of seeing breeding sea turtles during a night walk on the beach, surrounded by bioluminescent ocean water.


✦ Sultan Qaboos Mosque, Sohar, Oman
One of the countless beautiful mosques …


✦ Sultan Qabos Mosque, Sohar, Othman bin Af´wan Mosque, Sur, Al – Rasool Mosque, Mutrah, Oman
… and many more – each of them pure perfection.


✦ Wadi Bani Khalid, Oman
When we got tired of the heat, we took a dip in one of the many freshwater pools …


✦ Oman
… or we just ate some of the most amazing food.


✦ Al – Hamuda Fort, Bani Bu Ali and Tanuf ruins, Oman
Oman is full of abandoned ruins and cities, which make you feel like Indiana Jones.


✦ Wadi Tiwi, Oman
Some of our furry friends, which we will never get tired to observe.


✦ Jebel Shams, Oman
Getting to this canyon was the only time we had to change to a 4×4 car driven by a local.


Wadi Nakhar, Oman
If you thought the highest peak of Oman was a sanddune, we have to disappoint you. When the steep winding roads of the Hajar Mountains pushed our rental car beyond it´s limits, we hired a local driver to take us to the so called „Grand Canyon of Arabia“ in his 4×4. As we finally got there we were absolutely mindblown by the 1000 meters deep cliffs of Wadi Nakhar and climbed up several small viewpoints. We ended our day wild camping under a couple of trees, where some goats came by and decided to lick our tent for unknown reasons. Untouched nature and weird animal encounters pretty much sum up a typical camping day in Oman.


✦ Al Khaluf, Oman
The same moment we saw these pure white dunes glittering in the sun we stopped the car, got out, digged our toes in the most finest sand and jumped around like little kids.


✦ Rub al – Khali desert, Oman
After finishing our world trip we thought this would be the end of our adventurous lifestyle for a long time, but to be honest being back home gives us so many possibilities we didn’t even realize before. Vienna offers countless great spots for hiking and micro adventures in closest vicinity and thanks to our soon improving financial situation outdoor activities seem endless. It may sound odd, but instead of being trapped in the city we feel as if we were in the middle of an unknown country ready to explore the adventure playground right in front of our doorstep. This pic was taken in Oman at the edge of Rub al-Khali, the biggest sand desert in the world, where we climbed some random dunes and didn’t even know where to pitch our tent for the night. It doesn’t matter where you are as long as you carry freedom in your heart.


✦ Rub al – Khali desert, Oman
Never have we seen such white sand dunes, which felt exactly like walking through fine wheat flour.


✦ Al – Mudayrib and Wakan, Oman
Don´t be worried about your safety! Oman´s locals are nothing but welcoming and open.


✦ Dalkut, Oman
The only traffic problem in Oman is camels constantly blocking the road.


✦ Dalkut Beach and Jebel Samhan, Oman
The sunrises and sunsets have honestly been some of the most magical we have ever seen.


✦ Telegraph Island, Musandam, Oman
Boat cruising in Oman means lying back enjoying a traditional meal, watching the scenery and …


✦ Musandam, Oman
… getting close to dolphins. It may sound unspectacular for some persons, but after spotting dolphins in countries like Indonesia, Ecuador, Greece, New Zealand, Belize and Tanzania it was always our wish to see them really close, which now finally happened at the place we least suspected it. Most magical moment when they suddenly decided to follow our boat through the fjords.


✦ Wadi Dam, Oman
Wild camping gives us the opportunity to sleep at the most remote and idyllic places, but finding the right spot to pitch our tent can sometimes be quite tricky. Our personal most important rule is that we want to feel safe in order to get a good night´s sleep. Additionally it´s a nice bonus if our spot of choice is protected from wind and sun, like this beautiful dried out river bed in Oman, where cliffs and trees created a great natural shelter.
