Contemplating the road ahead

Contemplating the final few days before we head off. There are so many things we’ll miss in Dubai and so many things to look forward too!!

Cheese and onion bread – on the coals

First night at cool beach I decided to add some of the lovely cheese we had to our bread dough, along with some chopped onion – It was superb!!! This recipe is definitely going into our African recipe book. I do  hope we will get our hands on some cheese along the way. If cheese […]

Last chance: Oman recce No.2 done

With our last recce complete, we  find ourselves on the road to “ALMOST THERE”. Mike worked very hard at building us our very own set of roller drawers for the back of the vehicle. this will help with getting rid of a lot of the stuff that took up a lot of space and was hardly […]

Cool Beach

After trying to reach this a number of times…..probably more due to the lack of getting the co-ordinates. We eventually got the right details and headed down that way and this is a taste of what we experienced….

How a Camel Stands – Oman

If you have ever wondered how a camel stands…..this is the answer.

The amazing thing about Oman is that there are no villages for 100’s of kilometres and no fences around […]
