Reminiscing over that getaway weekend!

There are moments when you are going through your old albums and the places you have visited and realise,
'Ohh when was this taken?'
'I have gained/lost weight after that' ( surprisingly this time i felt i have lost compared to last time!)
'We had so much fun that day'
so on and so forth!....'  Happens to me all the time.
Well i came across a few of such albums which i had thought of sharing it here but eventually it never happened, (me being typically me!) until today when i saw that my last post was an year ago! So without any excuses i better come straight to the point... ;)

November last year on one of the Eid breaks we drove down to Barr Al Jissah resort Muscat in Oman. Oman is known as the hidden gem of Middle East. It's not a known tourist destination on the world map as many outsiders are not aware about it. If you read or see the pictures of Oman, it can easily give you a European tourist destination experience. Middle East is not just about deserts or glitzy high rise buildings, there is more to it. Oman is an untouched beauty. Read it somewhere that it lies on the crossroads of three continents and four seas. As you scroll down to the pictures, I am sure you would feel, its just Sea and only Sea everywhere! No wonder it's the perfect weekend getaway for the expat community like us in this part of the world. Not to forget the friendly and patriotic Omanis you come across!

Sharing some pictures I clicked of the beautiful landscape and the resort...


Barr Al Jissah Resort is 3 hotels combined into one! A huge property...
