Travels in Oman


Travels in Oman are the beautiful images and occasional thoughts of a Brit who has discovered desert sands in his veins. Living in the UAE for many years, Tony has both worked in and explored many of the neighbouring states but is content to call Oman his home (whilst not away travelling.)


Jenny Far Away


Jenny is a digital nomad newly arrived in Sohar, Oman and has begun to jot down her first impressions of this Middle Eastern state. Having charted the globe several times as a digital nomad, her journey has brought her to the birthplace of the infamous Omani hospitality - strangers helping new expats move furniture, the role patience plays in everyday life and just how much desert BBQ a person can eat...


Muscat Mutterings


Focusing on the life & news in the Sultanate of Oman with a specific spotlight on Muscat, these are not just mutterings as the title suggests, but a collection of helpful guides to local events. With topics as varied as children's costume contests to consular notices that the author finds, this is an excellent resource for newly arrived expats settling into the capital city of Oman.


Lawrence of Azaiba


Another anonymous blogger sharing the joys and tribulations of living in the Sultanate of Oman, Lawrence of Azaiba writes with a passionate verve that the other eponymous Laurence would approvingly nod his head at. Detailing the processses involved in day to day machinations with a wry tone, this is excellent reading for anyone looking to make the move.


Quantified Expat


Updated fairly infrequently, Quantified Expat is Peter's personal journey of expat life in a Sultanate. Hailing originally from the green (and rather wet) verdant shores of England, the posts are of family shenanigans and honest recollections of life abroad.


Blaber Blogger


According to the blog archives of Blaber Blogger, in Oman, people won’t troll you much as clouds will and Mountain Dew is definitely the (unofficial) national drink, which are handy precursors to life sandwiched between desert sands and mountain peaks. Leaving behind this 'amazingly, mind blowing, head boggling and earth shatteringly beautiful' place' would be rather difficult...


How To Live An Omani Princess


The stories of two anonymous Omani princesses sharing their lives behind the keyboard. Communicating via conversations, this blog is full of glitter, a touch of home decoration musings and tales from behind veils. Written in the tone of a friend over coffee, it is a blog worth reading as research and to find out about new gems.


A Life Outside the M25


An essential read for anyone looking to start a life and family outside of the M25 (yes, there is life outside of the England motorway ringing London), Ayshe's blog is a heartfelt journal of life as an expat in Oman. Discovering more and more as she finds herself further along the expat journey (and taking surprises in her stride) A Life Outside the M25 is a fascinating diary.


Ros in Wonderland


With a section of her blog dedicated to expat life in Oman, Ros spent 4 and a half years exploring this unique Sultanate. Side effects include excitement at seeing rain, the ups and downs of a relaxed way of life, surprise at how strawberries could occasionally cost the same by weight as gold and a plethora of other unpredictable revelations.


The Duncan Adventures


This self-proclaimed adventure addict, Scottish expat Mumma living in Oman and girl about town, shares her escapades and daily life in between. Being unable to say no to the opportunity to relocate their family to Oman, the tartan-clad clan established a veritable home zoo including a new baby, a massive dog, two crazy kittens, a few turtles and a verve for expat life.
